TV Pilot Episode, It's a Wrap!
The home renovation TV sizzle reel I worked on (a sizzle reel is a shortened version of a pilot, used to pitch a show idea to networks) just wrapped up shooting on Monday. In addition to “acting,” a team of many talented people also renovated the entire upstairs of a 1958 ranch-style house in Towson, MD.
The contractor on this job, Tony Centofanti, owner of Centofanti Design & Build, did a wonderful job renovating the house (as you’ll see below). His team was so easy to work with and does top notch work. (If you need a contractor, call me for his contact information!)
The house now has a brand new kitchen, two brand new bathrooms, refinished hardwood floors and fresh paint in every room. We then staged the house for the final reveal. It was an exciting and fast-paced project that I was very proud to be a part of. I’m excited to share some of the photos of the kitchen renovation with you here.
By removing the bulkhead over the cabinets we were able to add height to the room. A blue glass tile back splash set the look for the entire room. We then selected warm gray silestone counter tops and white cabinets (from Ikea) to compliment the back splash.
If you look on the left side of this picture, to the large span of counter top, you may notice that we took down a wall. An entire wall! This opened up the kitchen to the dining space and allowed us to add more cabinets, flood light into the dining room and add stools to the counter.
By removing this wall we visually doubled the space and flooded the rooms with light from the kitchen, which has a wonderful view. I have many more photos of the house to share with you, so check back for future posts! Finally, below is the team of people that made this project happen (there were many others involved, but I don’t have a picture of everyone). We had fun celebrating at a crab feast after party Monday night!
I hope this inspires your home projects. Happy decorating!
