Flipping Out!

Okay guys so our latest house flip is finished and I couldn't be more happy with the end result! We bought this house in January and slowly renovated due to (the Condo Flip) and the fact that part of the buying disclosure stated we couldn't resell the house in under 3 months time.  This house is in a great established neighborhood and we were so excited to give the neighbors a beautiful corner house to look at instead of this eyesore!  A few of the issues with this house besides an entire gut of the inside were 1. No AC unit 2. No hot water heater 3. Sketchy electrical job in the sunroom and laundry room 4. HUGE leak from an open pipe that was dumping water outside front exterior (causing rotten wood) 5. Water pipes not correctly connected in shower 6. Ceilings needed some new beams to support fans and lights in each bedroom. 7.Wall between the two bathrooms taken down to make one large bathroom with two toilets (looking at eachother) Haha! People are crazy! OKAY

TIME To Shop!

I've decided to start a fun new weekly blog post "Time To Shop" dedicated all to CLOCKS! That's right! Clocks have become a such a huge staple piece in today's home decor.  They are far more than just a piece to tell us the time. I'm not even going to lie..I once bought a cute mantle clock at Good Will even after the cashier told me it was broken! Who needs to tell time..I have my phone for that! I wanted it strictly as home decor! So without further is this Tuesdays clock pick! This  Industrial Rustic Wall Clock  stopped me in my tracks! Hands down I knew it would be my first "Clock Feature" for this new fun weekly blog post! And seriously come on..the price! Under $70 for a clock this size! (20" diameter) oh and did I mention FREE shipping! You're welcome! :)  XOXO

Condo Flip (Round Two!)

A few months back we renovated a small one bedroom condo in a popular area of Tampa.  The renovation was fast and fun...and the unit sold quickly! Basically it needed updating, all cosmetic when we don't have to deal with new roofs, plumbing, electric, AC issues etc,  flipping can actually be quite enjoyable! Just kidding! We love taking on these projects no matter how big or small.  (That being said we did run into a few problems with this units water heater and the floors not being level...basically there is no easy job!)  Anywaysss a month later my husband saw another unit in this complex pop up and we knew we wanted it! This also meant we would be working on the FlipHouse that we had just closed on as well...but we were ready!   This unit had a different layout than the last one and the kitchen was extremely tiny and set up more as studio kitchen/living room.  The appliances were also small so I knew when we took the measurements for new cabinets that I wanted to pu
