Restored! Amazing Historic Homes From Rehab Addict
Before: Past Its Prime
This poor house in Minneapolis looked as if it had seen better days before host Nicole Curtis got her hands on it.
After: Major Curb Appeal
A new green roof and a fresh coat of white paint bring this home back to life. But it's the small details, like the classic picket fence, that give the home character.
Before: Blah Bathroom
As the only bathroom in the house, this sad space needed a lot of work.
After: Suite Escape
In order to create a full bathroom suite, Nicole removed one wall and connected the bathroom with the master bedroom. She was able to restore the original floors and reuse the beautiful claw foot tub.
Before: Boring Foyer
The entryway lacked pizzazz, but Nicole had plans for creating a much grander foyer.
After: Grand Entrance
A gorgeous stair runner with a delicate floral print adds elegance to this once-bland entrance.
Before: Blank Slate
Right off the kitchen sat what was once a second bedroom. Since the space was empty, it just awaited a fresh coat of paint and the perfect furnishings.
After: A Perfect Match
Nicole chose pieces to complement the history of the home, such as this lovely antique wood desk.
Before: Humble Vanity
The home's vanity looked pretty worn out, but Nicole hoped to bring it back to its original state.
After: Functional Additions
A coat of white paint, new hardware and a small sink make the vanity a functional and delightful addition to the home.
Before: Hidden Beauty
The main feature in this room is the incredible stained glass window, which Nicole planned to highlight in her makeover.
After: Window Art
In her outstanding makeover, Nicole put the stained glass window on full display. And in order to create a walkway from the entry to the living room, she opened a door to the hallway that had once been boarded closed.
Before: Pitiful Porch
The back porch needed to be updated, but simple cleaning was the first order of the day.
After: Peaceful Retreat
Nicole swapped out the old porch walls and created a peaceful balcony, perfect for star gazing.
Before: Mystery Door
This bedroom was boarded up before the Rehab Addict team arrived, so it was a pleasant surprise to find such a spacious bedroom behind closed doors.
After: Vintage Decor
Nicole blended vintage pieces with thrift-store finds to create a space that reflected the home's historical style.
Before: Neglected and In Need
Built in 1923, this abandoned bungalow needed several repairs before it would be up to Nicole's standards.
After: Patriotic Porch
After a little spruce on the exterior, Nicole was ready to hang the American flag, as she does with all her projects.
Before: Unfinished Idea
Before they moved out, the owners of this home had plans to convert the attic into a master suite.
After: Dreamy Attic Bedroom
To make this attic the dream bedroom that was once envisioned, the space was first insulated and covered with sheetrock. After completion, the suite boasts a bedroom, bathroom and sitting area.
After: Upcycled Heating
Near the bed, Nicole repurposed an old cast iron radiator by adding a small shelf to hold plants or odds and ends.
Before: Catch-All Room
This downstairs living room was in great shape, so throughout the renovation, the space was used mostly to house excess materials.
After: Gorgeous Woodwork
The refinished wood floors look excellent in the bright living room, and the built-in wood features really reflect the home's traditional style.
After: Eye for Detail
Lovely plastered flowers were in each corner of the living room ceiling. Nicole and the team were careful not to change a thing when it came to historical details.
