Emptying the break room {police station makeover}

Today we are emptying the break room at the police station and sharing the progress to date with all of you. If you have been following along you know that I am making over our local police station’s break room as part of Sherwin-Williams National Painting Week campaign. Sherwin-Williams and Wayfair are sponsoring this campaign.

Are you ready to see what’s been happening?

We started by emptying the room and as you can see below,  Chief Towle and his son had a little fun with the process.

They had the room emptied in a couple hours and it even looked better empty. It’s crazy what getting rid of old stuff will do for a space!

As I mentioned in my previous post, I was originally going to have just new doors made for the existing cabinets but I quickly realized that a new kitchen wall would be amazing if we could pull it off. My friend Jake McGovern from Paramount Woodworking, offered to make all new cabinets and create a gorgeous focal point for this space.

Bye old cabinets.

Do you see that sink stove combo thing? Have you ever seen such a setup before? I never had and I was so happy to see it go. The stove didn’t work and the sink pretty was scary. Thankfully it didn’t hold sentimental value to anyone and they were equally excited to get rid of it.

There was quite a bit of damage to the walls so we had a lot of patching and repairing to do.

Once the room was empty and all the holes were patched, the room was ready to be painted.

We picked the Sherwin-Williams color Topsail for the walls and Extra White for the trim and doors.

Stay tuned, I’ll be back in a couple days sharing the newly painted walls and the making of the kitchen cabinets. I can’t wait to paint over the existing wall color and brighten up this break room.

    Wow, you and the team are really making progress! I can’t wait for the reveal but, I have no choice. I find this very exciting. I am one of those people that can watch HGTV all day. Thanks for sharing and the fun.

    Jessica,

    Usually those sink/stove combos come with a frig underneath. Schools use them when they are teaching life skills such as cooking, etc. I had one in my classroom when I changed rooms this past year. It was horrible, and it is GONE. Good luck with your renovation.
