You guys, things are happening!! I can hardly even recognize the flip anymore there’s been so many changes in the past few days. It actually looks like a real house that someone might actually want to buy – heart be still.
Okay, this is pretty much how things looked the last time we talked, right?
The bamboo floors are all dirty and nasty in these pictures, but today the flip was cleaned from top to bottom so they look oodles better (sorry, no pic of a clean flip yet!).
Lighting has been installed . . . loving how this sleek pendant looks in the dining room! We originally ordered a pendant with a drum shade but I fell in love with this linear version – no worries, the drum shade went into the master bedroom. :)
The patio is in the process of being scored and stained – hence the caution tape.
Can we pause for a moment and talk about how awesome my mom is? Look at these leaded glass panels she made for the kitchen cabinets!!! We asked for the same style as the panels she made for our house, and we think they really add something special to this kitchen.
Oooh, and the pendants were hung in the kitchen! Remember the debate over how many pendants to have, and our saga when each different pendant we fell in love with was back-ordered? Well, all that drama is behind us now and we’re super psyched over these pendants. As you can see, we went with four of them and they’re basically a mercury glass look (more so when the pendants are on). They bring a splash of black/dark gray to the kitchen that breaks up all of that white – something I didn’t realize it needed, but it looks great!
We discovered a little seam in the drywall on the ceiling near the fireplace, so the drywall guy whipped up this little plastic cocoon while he fixed it.
Here’s the drum shade in the master bedroom! Personally, I like to sleep with a fan on in the bedroom, but I like the elegance the chandelier brings to the room – hopefully buyers will, too!
The master bath is finally finished!
I’m debating whether I like the shower or the tub better - the shower is actually huge, which you can’t really see in this picture, but it extends about two feet further to the left behind the closet.
Mmmm, I think I would like every wall to be tiled in this marble/onyx mosaic tile.
Ooh, and the chevron patterned tile in the jack ‘n jill bath!! Every time I see it I swoon a little bit more. Each piece of tile was hand cut! It boggles my mind. In addition to every wall being tiled in that mosaic tile, I want every floor tiled in this chevron pattern. Pretty please. :)
And dual flush toilets!! We’re feeling so very eco-friendly. :) Oh yes, and we plan on doing this, too.
The front door!! I’m so glad we went ahead and replaced the old one.
This is the door after its first coat of stain – I’ll have to show you a picture later of how it looks now that it’s totally stained and sealed – soooo gorgeous!!
Oh, side note. The new front door handle has now been installed. I know this because we went by the flip late last night to turn on the alarm and we couldn’t get in. Why would that be? Because the guys installed the handle and then locked the keys inside. Oh yes, good fun for all. We thoroughly enjoyed the two hours we spent with the locksmith at 10:30 at night.
Anyhoo, we got new shutters, too!! Even though it’s not even remotely architecturally correct, I decided to add shutters on either side of the bay window. The nerve! I think it looks better, but hopefully we won’t have any architecture buffs scoping out our little rancher. :)
So that’s the latest update!! How’s it looking to you?
