When a reader named Andrea wrote me about the old brick house she and her husband bought and renovated in Northern Kentucky, the before and after photos blew me away. It’s beautiful now, but here’s how the exterior looked before they fixed it up:
On her blog Oak Ridge Revival, Andrea talks about their adventures in remodeling. The kitchen was pretty small and outdated when they moved in:
Now it’s open to the dining room (below). The old kitchen was in the space where the table and chairs are now–they swapped the rooms in the reno.

Andrea says, “Our architect, Ashli Slawter, of A. Slawter Architecture, suggested these simple changes. When I first laid eyes on the bathrooms, I thought for sure they would needed to be completely remodeled. Thanks to her suggestions, we were able to give the bathrooms a big update with a little money.”
The bedroom makeovers are beautiful, too. Here’s how one of them looked before:
Head over to her blog Oak Ridge Revival to take the rest of the house tour, get the details about the remodel, and see all of the jaw-dropping before and afters. Many thanks to Andrea for sharing her home with us!
