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 ...so 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 put in full size ones instead.  



 The bathroom needed everything removed except the tub, we kept the tub in this unit and only replaced the bath/shower fixtures. (In the last unit we did that gorgeous tile tub with mosaic accent...but in this unit we wanted to use the money for all new floors since these were damaged and cheap looking.)






The After!



Aren't these floors just gorgeous!? They are actually a tile that just look like wood! Long story short on these floors I had chosen darker ones that were being used in both the condo and the house...when my husband calls me and says "The Floors in the condo are being installed today and they seem a little lighter." I was okay with that thinking okay well all the pieces sort of vary anyways so that's probably what he meant.  Then I showed up...these were a totally different color! As luck would have it though I liked the lighter floors. :)

Now for the rewarding part...this unit sold in just two weeks! We can finally focus on finishing up the house flip (which has been a bit more hectic) but the end results are going to be amazing! Can't wait to share those before and afters! 
XOXO

Neutrals by BEHR Paint

I've been working on a project for the past two weeks and what always seems to be the most challenging part is choosing paint colors.  I have been wanting to find a nice neutral that isn't too "Gray" and isn't too "Beige" but not too white either. I personally like the look of white walls in pictures but in reality I'm not a huge fan.  Also, I like to see a contrast between painted walls and white trim.  Each time I look over on Pinterest for inspiration I find lots of suggestions for other paint brands..but I'm a BEHR girl :)  We spend so much time at Home Depot it just makes more sense for us.  That being said I decided to share with all of you my suggestions for finding the perfect "light Greige" by BEHR Paints!   To start off with here are three options that are lighter/cooler but will still show a nice contrast next to white. 1. Drizzle 2. Sterling 3. Halation These three options are als

Weekend in Miami!

  Over the past weekend we drove down to Miami and spent the night at our favorite beach front hotel..Marenas Resort.  It was our anniversary weekend and wanted to go somewhere we could have fun with the whole family. This is now the second time we have taken the girls to this particular resort (which is pretty impressive because both my husband and I love trying new places.) This resort offers "condo style" rooms which is awesome when traveling with children, has a really good onsite restaurant and is located right on Sunny Isles Beach.  The standard suite has views of both the ocean and the harbor. Stunning views! They also do NOT charge extra for beach chairs and umbrellas which is almost unheard of now a days.  It's moderately priced for everything your getting in this location. These are the views off the patios and around the pool.  I just love Miami's water! Its such a beautiful color and reminds me of the Bahamas!  We spent
