What’s Going On At the Flip?

First of all, thanks SO MUCH for all your input on choosing the chandelier for our dining room – your comments made it crystal clear to me which one I should choose, and the chandy has been ordered!  Y’all rock . . . and you’ll have to wait to see what I chose.  :)

But now back to the flip – it’s been FOREVER since I’ve told you what’s going on over there!  Big things, my friends, big things.

I’m telling you right now – this is a photo-heavy post so if you have an aversion to pics of construction goodness then I suggest you look away now.  You’ve been warned.

First of all, the kitchen actually looks like a kitchen – who knew that day would ever come!  The cabinets were delivered . . .

. . . and installed . . .

. . . and the backsplash went in, subway tile with gray grout . . .

( Also, you can’t see the carrera marble counter tops because they’re covered with plastic, but they are glorious. )

The bathrooms are also really coming along. I’m in LOVE with the master bathroom!

( Obviously the cabinets still need to be painted! )

And the jack ‘n jill bathroom is looking good, too.

The original beams and built-ins in the den and dining room are getting a coat of rich brown paint, along with the kitchen island.

I’m excited about how it’s looking so far!

And last but not least, the front porch got snazzed up with some slate tile.

You’re not going to believe me when I tell you this, but the flip will be ready to go on the market in less than 2 weeks (in reality, our contractor says it will be ready in 1 week but I’m adding in a fudge factor).  Yes!!!!!  Of course there are still a zillion things that need to be completed (finish painting the interior, landscaping, painting the exterior of the house, installing lighting fixtures, sanding and staining the floors, installing hardware) but all of that stuff goes really fast.  Yippee!

I’ll keep you guys posted with any fun new developments!

      Ooh, that would be so fun!! To me there’s nothing more exciting than tile, hardware and lighting – but maybe I need to get out more. :)

  3. Fabulous!! Everything is looking good so far! Love the master shower. I can’t wait to see more marble on the counter tops!! And 1-2 weeks completed?! Amazing. GOOD LUCK!

  4. Mrs. Foot says:

    Wow. Just wow. I liked your choices for the last flip, but this one makes me want to sell my house, move, and buy this place! I *love* the subway tile in the kitchen. And the bathrooms are amazing!!! I hope you’ll do a source list for where you got all that tile… Drool.

    • Liz - It's Great To Be Home says:

      Yay!!! I feel a little disloyal to the other houses we’ve done but this one is shaping up to be my favorite as well. :) And I will definitely share as much info as I can!

  5. Lisa Capasso says:

    everything looks fantastic, but I am OMG in love with the herringbone backsplash.

  6. I’m sorry, but we can no longer be friends. 2 weeks? I want to cry.

    Okay. Maybe we can still be friends. But I’m insanely jealous. And it’s just gorgeous. Everything.

    • Liz - It's Great To Be Home says:

      You’re nuts – you guys are rocking it out, and you’re DIYing it all!! I’m amazed, my friend.

  7. Janis says:

    I guess it’s well that you did not decide to move into your previous flip, because you’d have to move all over again in a couple of weeks! Can’t wait for a tour :)

  8. christy says:

    OH MY GOSH! Amazing! I can’t believe how fabulous it is. The subway tile on the zig zag is brilliant! Gorgeous! LOVE WANT NEED! And the bathrooms are fab too. Seriously, standing ovation from New Jersey!!!

  9. Rebecca says:

    Are you guys the fastest flippers on the planet, or is it just me?

    2 obsessions in this post: the backsplash (I thought I only loved tiny, skinny, glass tile backsplashes, but I was SO WRONG) and the floor tile in the jack n’ jill bathroom (loving the oversized-ness of them).

    So excited to see the final result!

  10. It’s looking fabulous. And so fast! Tell be about the cabinets… do you get a good deal on them somewhere unfinished?

    • Liz - It's Great To Be Home says:

      Thanks chickie! We did get them for a good deal, and they are custom from a local cabinet guy – and I hope he never realizes that he could raise his prices a good bit. :)

  11. HOLY cow. This is just amazing. Great work! I can’t believe it will be ready that fast! I love that shower in the master =)

  12. Tonya says:

  15. Michael says:

    It looks like allot of fun as well, creating like this … freely .. Thanks for inspiring

  16. Gosia says:

    Where do you buy your kitchen cabinets and how do you paint them? I really like what you did to all of the kitchens. I’m ready to renovate my kitchen and finding new cabinets is not that easy and very, very expensive…. Thanks!

  17. This kitchen and bathroom are going to look amazing! I have to admit it is refreshing to see another flipper that doesn’t think its taboo to use marble!

  18. Rochelle says:

    I really like the master bathroom it is is very spacious. Does it have a bathtub to lay down and relax?

  19. I want your job as a flipper!!!! But I wouldn’t do as a good job as you did on this one. All that marble… drool.

  20. It looks so wonderful. I really admire your choice for the tile.

  21. .Painting kitchen cabinets is relatively easy and can really give your entire kitchen a new and updated look. If you take your time your kitchen cabinets will look like they are brand new no matter how old they may actually be..
