Sophie's Mom owner Tonette Rosal renovates her family home
A home makeover is completed with recycled furniture and sweet DIY touches
When a storm hits, it leaves chaos, destruction, and a chance to start again. After a typhoon caused their roof to leak and damaged their family home, Tonette Rosal took it as a sign to give the split-level house with 1950s-style architecture a makeover.
First, Tonette opened up the ceiling and put up new doors and windows to let the sunlight in. To complement the now airy and spacious feel of the space, the original dark wood paneling was replaced with clean, whitewashed walls. The result of the total home renovation becomes even better with “new” furniture pieces that are actually vintage items revamped to fit the style of the house. The busy mother, Sophie’s Mom owner, and DIY enthusiast repurposed some of the chairs and accessories herself.
