For our fourth and final round of tours of the finished flip, I thought I’d show you how we changed the exterior and the guest bathroom (and if you’re just tuning in you can check out the finished kitchen here, the master suite here, and the den, dining room and office here).
The exterior was in pretty great shape for the most part – it just needed some love! We switched out the old iron porch support and scrollwork for a more contemporary stained cedar post – an instant improvement!
We also added modern house numbers, new lighting fixtures, new windows in a striking bronze color . . .
. . . and a new solid wood front door with sleek hardware.
Much better!! The iron bars on the windows and front door got the boot, too. :)
A little sprucing of the landscaping and we were good to go!
And before we head to the backyard, let’s check out the guest bathroom. Remember how we changed the layout? Well, here’s how the finished product turned out:
Nothing like the original, right? In fact, the only thing that stayed was the original mirror, which we repainted to match the new vanity.
I really love how this bathroom turned out, and I would use any of these finishes again in a second. Especially the floor tile – my fave. :)
And the last stop on our tour? The deck!!
I never knew I could love a deck like I love this one. I am 100% committed to having one like this at our next house (not that we’re moving, but a girl can dream).
The benches are my favorite part. Why have a railing when you can have benches?!?
And remember, we tore down this insane addition before adding the deck (and in turn adding access to the backyard through new sliders).
So much better! I can totally envision laying out on these benches, or throwing an awesome backyard party. I’m jealous.
The new sliders above . . .
. . . and the new fence!
That’s it for the before and afters of our fourth flip!
We should be closing on the purchase of our fifth flip by the end of the month, so hopefully I’ll be able to fulfill your need for photos of demolition carnage soon. Fingers crossed. :)
