I LOVE what I do with every square inch of my being. So much so, that I can hardly put work down at the end of the day. I get lost in designing floor plans, cabinetry, furniture...and the list goes on! One of most recent projects was a new restaurant called FREIGHT Kitchen & Tap in Woodstock, GA.
For starters, the building was incredible...a train depot circa 1912, the architecture was to die for...28 feet high ceilings and exposed wood...everywhere, and the location was invigorating...so close to the train track that everyday, twice a day, the building shakes as the cargo trains go by! Talk about atmosphere! Unfortunately, the previous tenants had covered up most of the character of the building during it's one of several renovations.
My goal was to bring it back to life...unveil it's spirit and send it into it's 100th birthday with a BANG!!
Here are some of the many pictures to chronicle its transformation.
The following pictures are of the original building before the previous tenant started their remodel process...
Here are some of the pictures of the first remodel. All of the original woodwork was painted gloss black.
Here are the pictures from the renovation process and the newly remodeled FREIGHT Kitchen!
Hope you enjoy!
Above are the FABULOUS Michael and Melissa Steele who made the incredible 18' long burlap drapery panels and the beautiful benches in the upper lounge. They are hoisting the panels and steel pipe rods up with a pulley!!
Above are the footrests for the bar...train tracks!
This picture is horrible in quality but is just an example of how "hands-on" interior designers can get with their projects! That is me up on the ladder trying to adjust the bar shelving.
Coming soon! My newest adventure...furniture and accessories to be sold on my website. Ottomans, pillows, headboards and more!
Look for it this summer!
