Ree Drummond and Her Sister Betsy Are Engaged on a Home Mission!

Ree Drummond

My sister Betsy lives in Seattle. She did not get to journey house to Oklahoma for a year-plus in the course of the early pandemic days, and by the point Alex’s marriage ceremony rolled round final 12 months, she was prepared for a pleasant, lengthy go to! Lengthy story quick, that go to was extra visits by final summer time, and by fall she was spending a number of time right here. And I acquired to see my nephew, Elliot, loads more—I missed him!

One other lengthy story quick: final fall Betsy and I made a decision to purchase a home collectively in Pawhuska and repair it up in order that she’d have a house base right here in Oklahoma every time she visits. It will double as an additional place on the town for family and friends (and movie crews!) to remain as wanted, and over time we simply began calling it “Sister Home.” That title has caught!

Listed below are some glimpses inside! We’ll maintain you posted as we get issues completed over the following couple of weeks.

This is the entrance of the home! We stayed fairly true to the unique, as we did not wish to make any sweeping modifications (like portray the brick white) that is perhaps jarring to the candy, quiet neighborhood. We’ve some landscaping to do and wish to paint the entrance door a neat coloration. Any concepts?

That is the doorway to the home, and it is particularly enjoyable as a result of this can be a new doorway that wasn’t there earlier than! It was beforehand a coat closet, however we busted by and made this a walkway to the kitchen. There’s a lot extra mild than there was earlier than!

We saved the hearth and previous built-ins the home already had, however added doorways on the decrease cupboards and gave the built-ins a recent coat of paint. This’ll be a pleasant, cozy room!

We needed to change the stair railing and went with the normal look. There have been a number of methods we may go right here, together with a recent black/iron railing…however we needed to maintain it homey and conventional. We’ve a reasonably runner for the steps. It is kinda pink!

We had this awkward house underneath the steps that we thought of turning right into a hidden room, hidden canine room, or hidden wine cellar…however we needn’t conceal, Betsy does not have a canine, and we aren’t wine connoisseurs, ha! So we simply added cabinets for cookbooks and issues.

On the opposite aspect of the steps is the eating room, which was once a lounge! We added easy paneling to the partitions and love the lightness and brightness of the tender white paint. Cortney McClure in Bartlesville, Oklahoma helped us with furnishings and fixtures, and I really like these pendants!

We’ve a few glass-front cupboards within the kitchen, and these are the doorways. I really like the curved profile and the quarter-sawn oak. To me, quarter-sawn oak all the time appears older and extra “classic” than common oak. It is also pricier, so we simply used it for a number of touches right here and there.


The Previous Upstairs Research!

That is in all probability my favourite room in the home. Cortney, Betsy, and I have been all in settlement that the previous (circa 1980) plaid carpet wanted to remain, and Cortney advised selecting a brilliant darkish navy to coordinate with the colours of the plaid. I completely love this room, which is off of Elliot’s bed room. Excellent spot to hold and watch previous 80’s films!

The key to going with a darkish, moody coloration like that is to go all in: partitions, doorways, trim, even ceiling! And might we discuss in regards to the nice form this previous carpet is in? I believe we must always get it cleaned simply in case, haha, nevertheless it was so properly taken care of by the years.


The Gentle, Vivid Model

That is the corresponding bunk house on the opposite aspect of the upstairs. We’re retaining it vivid and light-weight, and Cortney had the thought of wallpapering the ceiling and higher a part of the partitions. Will maintain you posted on that!


Fairly and Predictable

For one of many bogs upstairs, we went with white/gray marble and white cupboards. A bit of a protected alternative, however we prefer it loads…and there are many non-white areas round the home so as to add some coloration and enjoyable!
