If you're watching this season of The Real Housewives of Dallas, then you know that Cary Deuber and her husband Mark completely gutted their home to do a massive renovation, which resulted in them temporarily moving into her parents' home. The couple spared no expense in creating their dream place, from Cary's enviable light-up closet that Mark designed to the couple's $75,000 custom Molteni kitchen range, which is the only one of its kind in the whole state of Texas. They're now back in their own abode, but it has been a lot of work.
What was the hardest part of the process? "Oh my gosh, renovating, it takes so much longer than you think," Cary told Home & Design. "And part of that is Mark and I added on a lot. Like, we added on a whole bar, um, made of Kewazinga Bubinga wood, I mean, that’s not easy to get ... it’s a type of wood from Africa that our piano is actually made out of and so we made the bar out of it. That was like another add-on, so we just kind of kept going. So, it’s kind of Mark and I’s fault that it took a while."
As they got going on the renovation, it was clear that more work needed to be done.
"We tore out all the fireplaces because they used to be like, the yellow-ish, white-ish color that was in the house and now they’re black," she said. "We ripped them all out. So, you know, we just kept going."
The good news is that the Deubers have moved back into their home, but there is still some work left to be done.
"We’re putting on the finishing touches right now," Cary shared. "The closet is almost done, now I’m kind of organizing, getting there. The kitchen is pretty much finished, so now we just need artwork and we actually just re-stuccoed the outside of the house, repainted the whole inside, ripped up all the floors, put all new flooring in, it’s crazy. I don’t know what happened."
