Renovating the Gardenia Resort
Design expert Blanche reinvents the Gardenia Resort in Jamaica.
1. Wall Puzzle
Once you have your design down, take the wood that you’re going to use and cut it down to the size that you need. Your depth should be anywhere from 6 to 12 inches. If you plan on hanging items on the walls -- but within the boxes -- then keep the depth narrow. If you plan on stacking items like books in the boxes, then go with a standard shelf depth like 12 inches. Once the pieces are cut, start assembling each of your rectangles using wood glue as well as nails. Now that your rectangle boxes are made, you can either stain them like we did at the Gardenia Resort or you can paint them a fun color of your choice.
2. Designer Sliders
The trick is to make sure the new interior trim and Xs are slimmer than the actual door, so that they lay inside the door and not protrude past the door.
