I am SO excited to finally show you guys our Tulsa Remodel Reveal Modern White Farmhouse with Black Windows and Doors, otherwise known as the Rebsamen Remodel! It was such a joy working with the Rebsamen family on this project and helping them transform this Jenks house into the home they dreamed of, a modern white farmhouse! (more…)
I knew immediately that I wanted to do something different on this beautiful ranch style home that was originally built in the 1950s. I didn’t want to do just white if you know what I mean. Don’t get me wrong. I love white. My entire house is painted white brick.
But the beauty of this home is that because of the size of the exterior, I felt it could totally pull off something more dramatic and moody. I knew I wanted to go with a deep blue color on the exterior and pair it with cedar shutters and accents. I absolutely love the way it turned out.

THE BEFORE AND AFTERS:
RANCH STYLE OPEN CONCEPT
HGTV came out to this site to film a pilot at the beginning of this project. Mike and I got caught up in the excitement of “demo day” while the film crew spurred us on! Unfortunately, they decided not to continue filming and we had already knocked down an entire wall! We literally sat on the house for a year before Mike finally let me run rampant with the design. It was a blessing in disguise because we would not have torn the wall down otherwise. It looks amazing and completely opened up the house. Thank you HGTV!
Here are the dramatic BEFORE and AFTERS of how we took this kitchen from a dark, closed-off kitchen with dropped ceilings and dated wallpaper, to a stunning, open concept kitchen with a large island, open shelving, and plenty of WOW!
The flip house kitchen was a perfect opportunity for me to have a little fun and do some design work that I knew Mike probably wouldn’t go for in our personal home – in other words, BLACK CABINETS mixed with warm wood tones. It’s no secret that I love black and white in design and you will often hear me say; “You know what never goes out of style? Black and white.” I also wanted to incorporate some open shelving and sconces and the sliding pantry door was a nice, bold touch for impact!

WOOD FLOORS –
Wood floors were provided by Mill Creek Carpet and Tile. They provided all flooring and tile for this project and we absolutely loved working with them. They were so helpful throughout the selection process and their customer service all the way through installation was incredible. If you are local to Tulsa or Oklahoma City, I highly recommend using Mill Creek and you can even go in and tell them you want to see CC and Mike’s favorites and they have a board put together of items we used on our flip house! The floors we selected were Bella Cera Monza Collection in French Oak Bivio.
If you are not in Tulsa, you can purchase the flooring we used in the flip house project here:
SHOP KITCHEN STYLING ITEMS:
QUARTZ: London Skye by Corian Quartz
VENT HOOD: We created this vent hood look by using the same wood flooring that we used throughout the house, on the vent hood. We had our trim carpenters cut the Bella Cerra engineered wood floors to fit the size of the vent hood then attached them to the front and sides of the vent hood. It was actually Mike Miller’s idea and I absolutely LOVE how it turned out!
PAINT: Cabinets are Benjamin Moore Black Beauty and walls are Benjamin Moore Decorator’s White in Eggshell finish
It’s unbelievable to me now when I look at these photos that this is the same room! Knocking out the brick wall which used to be the original exterior of the wall, was no easy task. It also wasn’t an easy task convincing Mike Miller to go for it – ha! But I definitely think it was the right decision. Especially when you see these before and afters of how the bricked wall completely closed off the kitchen from the living room.
All of the lighting in the flip is from HUDSON VALLEY LIGHTING. We absolutely love working with them and use HVL in all of our products. CC and MIKE THE SHOP also proudly offer Hudson Valley Lighting in our SHOP and here are some of our favorites:

APRICOT MIST SKY KITCHEN RUNNER – we love this runner and the beautiful colors and patterns. It makes a statement wherever it goes and we love how it looks in the flip house kitchen!
BELOW you will see the original laundry room of the house. One of the major things we did with the kitchen remodel is to knock into the garage and frame out a new laundry room, making the original laundry room a part of the new kitchen. We made it into a bar area with open shelving in front of the window and it made the kitchen much larger and more functional!

The original pantry door was pretty small and had a lot of hidden space around the corner. But it wasn’t accessible and the design was awkward. I knew that we needed to make the wall into a design statement. We came up with the idea of the sliding barn door to accomplish that. Mike is more function and I am most definitely fashion, so this pantry has the best of both worlds now. The large pantry is fully accessible and is one of my favorite features in the home.
WOOD FLOORS, TILE, AND BACKSPLASH:
We were so thrilled to work with MILL CREEK CARPET AND TILE for our flooring and backsplash in the kitchen. One of the most beautiful items in the entire house is the Bella Cera engineered wood floors that we put throughout the house. Mill Creek has all our favorite design selections saved so you can just go in and ask for the CC and Mike Special and they will get you taken care of!
Kitchen Backsplash is available locally at Mill Creek Carpet and Tile – Eden Bianco 3 x 11 | If you aren’t local to Tulsa you can buy this Ceramic Subway Tile to recreate our backsplash look
Now for the TILE – We used two different tiles, both available at Mill Creek Tile locally in Tulsa. If you aren’t local to Tulsa, I’ve sourced the black and white plaid, and black and white geometric line tile for you here:
I’ll let the before and afters do the talking for the living. I will mention that I think the fireplace redo is one of my favorite statements in the room!

One of the biggest problems that needed fixing in the ranch-style house, once we opened up the kitchen and knocked out the brick wall, was that there was no dining room. My idea was to do a built-in breakfast nook on the back wall of the living room and turn that space into the dining area. It was a great use of space and turned an otherwise boring wall into a bold statement with a functional use as a dining area!
If you are looking to style bookshelves in your home like we did in the Jenks flip house dining room, check out the new CC and Mike the SHOP line of HOME ACCENTS. We just added all of these items to the shop because we think that they are perfect for bookshelf styling!!

THE MASTER BATHROOM
Without a doubt, one of the most dramatic changes we made in this flip house, is turning this peach and floral wallpaper CLOSET, into an awesome MASTER BATHROOM! When I walked into this house, I had a vision of what I wanted to do with outdated ranch style home. I immediately saw the potential. Originally, this home only had three bedrooms and one bathroom. It now has three bedrooms and TWO bathrooms! We literally took a tiny, wallpaper filled closet and converted it into the master bathroom. It is the thing that I am the proudest of, on this project. It was a big deal to add this room but it was paramount to the design of this house.

One of the best features of this master bathroom is the SHOWER DOOR that we sourced from Home Depot. These window pane shower doors are so on trend and we love them paired with the black and white geometric line tile floors, blue/gray cabinet color, and black and gold hardware!

OK so it’s not fair to talk about our master bathroom addition and not give the original bathroom some love as well. This bathroom was once the only bathroom in the house but with our renovation, it became the hallway bath for guests and also fo the two bedrooms to share. We kept with the same palette but switched up the floor, mirror, and sconces:

Last but not least in theCC and Mike Modern Navy and Cedar Ranch Style Remodel Reveal, I want to show you just a few more before and afters. Because who doesn’t love a before and after!
THE FRONT ENTRY
In the original home, when you walked in the front door, there were two double doors that led into the closet area (that we turned into the master bath) and what I’m assuming was the original living room. This had been converted into a master bedroom over the years but had no bathroom. We walled off these doors, turned the closet into the master bathroom, and turned the original living room in the master suite. We knocked a wall out in the kitchen and framed into the garage then made an entrance into the master suite off the kitchen.
SHOP THIS FRONT ENTRY LOOK:
I’ll leave you with some pretty little details. This project was a long time coming but we loved the journey. From HGTV coming to film and choosing not to come back and finish the pilot, to us letting it sit for a year while we finished the Good Remodel and Rebsamen Remodels, to us meeting Dorothy and finding the absolute perfect buyers meant for this home…I wouldn’t change a thing.
I hope you enjoy the CC and Mike Modern Navy and Cedar Ranch Style Remodel!
We are so thrilled to be a part of this transformation and to update this home for the next generation to make a lifetime full of memories inside these walls and in that big, gorgeous backyard just like the generation before them did.

I am so very excited to share the CC and Mike Kane Project Remodel Reveal today!
This project has a special place in my heart because it was a remodel for my friend Cyndi Kane who lives in beautiful Pawhuska, Oklahoma. Cyndi has become a dear friend and is a constant source of encouragement to me. She believes in me even when I might be struggling to believe in myself. She thinks big and encourages me to dream even bigger than I could ever dare to dream on my own. She is the catalyst for CC and MIKE THE SHOP and has been instrumental in helping us launch our online e-commerce business. But most of all, Cyndi is a mentor, wife, mother, friend, and woman of faith whom I look up to and admire greatly. Being a part of transforming her home into a space that she and her family truly love and enjoy, has been a great honor for us!
Alrighty, firt of all we have to talk background and set the stage for this remodel story. Cyndi lives in Pawhuska, Oklahoma. If you haven’t been to Pawhuska, it is one of my favorite places and you should definitely plan a visit. From the wide-open ranges of the Tallgrass Prairie Preserve, to the Pioneer Woman Mercantile, to P-Town Pizza and the new Pioneer Woman Boarding House, to Osage Outfitters (my favorite place to shop while in Pawhuska) to the art galleries full of one-of-a-kind Native American pieces, Pawhuska is a bustling little Oklahoma town that will leave you feeling energized, refreshed, and completely at peace after you visit. However, the best part of Pawhuksa, by far, is the people. As a result of this project and our friendship with Cyndi and her precious family, Michael and I have been able to meet so many people from the great town of Pawhuska. Their genuine kindness, authenticity, and love for one another are inspiring. Simply put, this is a town where people help one another and live by the golden rule. John Kane, Cyndi’s husband, is a fourth generation Pawhuskan. Is that a word? Pawhuskan? If not, I just made it one so just go with it-ha! So where am I going with all this talk of Pawhuska? Well, I feel like before I can share this remodel, I need you to truly know the amazing people behind it, and also you need to know that Cyndi and John live in a beautiful home on the top of a hill in Pawhuska that once belonged to John’s grandparents. I mean, how cool is that? Judge John Kane, Cyndi’s husband, is a lawyer as was his father before him, and his grandfather before him. All of them have practiced law in Pawhuska. Talk about a really cool legacy. Hopefully, you are starting to get a picture of how incredibly cool it was to be a part of this project. It makes my heart oh so happy thinking about the Kanes entertaining family and friends around their big kitchen island and in their beautiful new living room (did I mention that white couch is stain resistant Crypton fabric and is resistant to everything from dog prints to wine to anything kids and grandkids can throw at it?! Because it is, which is pretty incredible since Cyndi is going to have her first grand-baby pretty soon and still has teenagers in the house). Yep. I’ve rambled on and on and basically what I want to say is, gosh, we feel so incredibly blessed to have been a part of this remodel but even more-so, to call the Kane family our friends.
OK! So now that you have the background you need to have about the Kanes, and about Pawhuska, and about this being a third generation home that was built by John’s grandparents….let’s finally talk about the remodel!
Cyndi had a very clear vision of where she wanted to go with the remodel. Many of the pictures she showed me had an industrial vibe with a lot of wood and brick and stainless steel. I also absolutely loved Cyndi’s eclectic side, being a self-professed lover of eclectic design myself. I knew we needed to incorporate some interesting elements in the design like brick backsplash, a black statement wall, an art ledge, and large natural wood sliding barn doors on the tv wall. Over time, Cyndi and I came up with a concept and design for her living room and kitchen that we both loved, and I want to share the design boards with you so that you can see how this process of remodeling works.
DESIGN BOARD FOR THE KANE PROJECT
Shop the Kane Remodel Kitchen Products here (more detailed info on products listed below):
From the first time I visited Cyndi’s house and met her family, I knew the goal of the kitchen remodel would be to rework with kitchen space and allow for more room and a better flow in the kitchen area. The Kanes entertain often and their large kitchen island is truly the heart of their home. However, the fridge was the focal point of the kitchen and the stove was in an area that really didn’t make sense and impeded the flow of guests and family members throughout the kitchen. In addition to this, the kitchen became very congested when people tried to walk to the fridge and open the door and the dimensions of the kitchen island made it difficult for guests to freely roam around, grab a drink or a bite to eat from the fridge, and have a seat at the large bar. It was our goal to not only fix the flow of the kitchen but also give a fresh, updated look to the entire space. Based on numerous meetings and discussions and inspiration photos that Cyndi shared with me, I came up with the design board above for their kitchen remodel. Cyndi really wanted to incorporate brick, open shelving, and natural wood cabinets so we did all of the above. She also has a very eclectic style that resonates with my soul. As you know, I love patterns, textures, color, and consider myself a girl with eclectic style as well. Cyndi loves art and wanted to incorporate art in the kitchen as well so instead of a vent hood, Cyndi put a large piece of custom art—a photograph her husband, John, took of their beloved Catholic Church in Pawhuksa. So without further ado, let’s see the before and afters of the Kane kitchen remodel….
BEFORE PICTURE OF CYNDI’S KITCHEN
AND DRUMROLL PLEASE….HERE IS THE AFTER!
As you can see, we rearranged the kitchen by moving the refrigerator to the far wall instead of having it smack dab in the center wall between the windows. We reworked the size of the island to be a better fit for people to walk around and replaced the countertops with beautiful quartz. We also got a statement-making black and gold Hallman range and put it as the center point of the kitchen with a piece of custom art above the stove. Add the brick backsplash, open shelving, and natural wood cabinets with black hardware….and you have a gorgeous new kitchen that the Kanes (and CC and Mike) LOVE! Oh, and I have to mention those Saturnus light fixtures because truly, the second I saw them I knew they would be just the perfect piece to finish this kitchen off and pull all of the design elements together. Gosh, I love those light fixtures and new they were meant for this kitchen the second I saw them. I also have to mention the Loren rug that is available from CC and Mike the SHOP. We used the gorgeous rug in the kitchen and the living room and it one of my absolute favorite rugs right now. I love the versatility and I love all the different colors you can pull out of the rug. Additionally, the colors in the rug make it a great choice for family rooms, kitchens, and bedrooms because it is dark enough not to show stains but not too dark that it looks heavy in a room. I highly recommend this rug if you are looking for the perfect new statement for your living room, master bedroom, dining room, kitchen runner, or even just hallway runners. You can’t go run with the terracotta Loren rug that we used in this remodel.
Cabinets: The cabinets are rift sawn white oak cabinets. These are truly a work of art and natural wood cabinets are so gorgeous! You have to be very careful when staining these cabinets though or else they will turn out looking orange or pink. The trick is having your painter add some white into the stain mix. It’s imperative to do a few stain samples on the inside of a cabinet and check it after it dries before you stain all the cabinets.
Brick Backsplash: OK so here are the deets on the brick backsplash. We used a product from Home Depot called Old Mill Brick. It is a thin brick single that is perfect for use in interiors. It’s easy to work with and is much thinner than regular brick so it can be used on walls and for backsplash. We also used this product for the vent hood area in the Rebsamen remodel so as you can see, it’s extremely versatile and is a great product to use if you’re wanting to incorporate brick into your interiors. For the Kane remodel, we used a custom mix of Castle Gate Old Mill brick and Dark Castle Gate.
Quartz: Calcatta Lincoln 3 cm quartz
Wood Floors: All the wood floors are from Mill Creek Carpet and Tile. If you are looking to add engineered wood floors to your next home project, we highly recommend using Mill Creek. Their selection is phenomenal and their customer service was top notch. We are also using Mill Creek Carpet and Tile for our Jenks House Flip we are currently doing and we have used them for all our tile selections. Mill Creek has a custom made selections board with all our CC and Mike favorites so you can just go in and ask for the CC and Mike special and they can help you out. Just wait til you see the black and white buffalo check tile and patterned tile that we are using in our flip house. Trust me, we fell in love with it and so will you. But back to the wood floors, for the Kane project, we selected the Villa Belize brand of engineered wood floors and the specific type we used was GELA.
These bar stools are a must mention as well. They are available in CC and Mike the SHOP and the price point is incredible. They also are extremely comfortable, durable, and mess-free since they can just be easily wiped down! I highly recommend these bar stools, especially paired with natural wood islands and white islands.
This area of the kitchen remodel was very important because one of our goals was to add a little bar and drink area. As mentioned previously, when the Kanes entertained the kitchen would become congested at times and this little area now allows guests to just come in and grab a drink without walking through the main kitchen area. The beautiful custom art you see is called OSAGE RAIN and it was commissioned for this space by Cyndi by Tulsa artist Brent Brander.
Let’s talk about the lighting you are going to see as well because it is a must-mention. I love the use of the library sconce in the bar area (pictured below). This sconce is from Hudson Valley Lighting and it is available in CC and Mike the Shop.

NEXT UP WE HAVE THE LIVING ROOM DESIGN AND REMODEL!
Our goals for the living room were three things: MORE LIGHT (this was a special request from Cyndi’s husband), MORE COMFORT (their previous red leather couch was not a fan favorite in the Kane household because of lack of comfort), and just an overall fresh new look and design! I encouraged Cyndi to consider a black statement wall to showcase her art and she went for the idea! I’m so glad she did becaue we both love it. Pro tip: It usually works out pretty nicely when a client trusts the designer even if it’s a bit out of their comfort zone. I know it’s hard. Trust me, I do! Cyndi has told me she was unsure about the idea of the black statement wall, but she trusted me and said let’s go for it! You will see for yourself how it turned out (spoiler alert: it’s incredible) and we love how it just totally showcases all of Cyndi’s beloved art collection!
HERE IS THE DESIGN BOARD I CREATED FOR THE KANE LIVING ROOM:
So now that you’ve seen what our road map was for the design of the living room, let’s take a look at the…

I seriously love what the Polaris Arc Floor Lamp adds to this space. It just really wouldn’t be the same without it. You can buy this statement maker lamp for your own home right here! Just click on the picture to buy from CC and Mike THE SHOP.
Another area we needed to focus on was the fireplace wall. We ended up ripping out some tile that was on the Kane’s fireplace and covering it with a stucco/cement type finish. Then we painted the shelves black and had sliding barn doors made to cover the wall. I absolutely love how it turned out! The buffalo art above the fireplace was a custom piece by John Kane, Cyndi’s husband. If you are looking for similar art, we have a buffalo print available in CC and Mike THE SHOP!
You can also shop the products we used from WEST ELM to style the shelves including baskets, vases, and book ends, here:

AND HERE IS THE AFTER
One of my absolute favorite moments of this remodel is when Cyndi brought out these three beautiful mandolins (pictured below) that her brother hand-made. We were missing something on that back corner wall in the living room and I was trying to sort it out when I remembered Cyndi had told me about some mandolins her late brother had made for her. To be honest, I didn’t even know what a mandolin was but I asked her about them. She disappeared to another room and brought these three beautiful, hand-made wooden mandolins out with her. And I literally gasped out loud. I knew they were perfect and they were meant to be on that corner wall. We both were in tears when we hung them and saw how the perfectly completed the room. I firmly believe that no room is complete without something meaningful —handmade, painted, or gifted to you by someone you love, etc..—in it. The mandolins that Cyndi’s brother made truly completed this room, don’t you agree?
Another notable mention in this project are these gorgeous Abrams sconces, also from Hudson Valley Lighting. HVL is always a dream to work with and we also recently used them for every light in our Jenks Flip House project which I can’t wait to reveal soon.
