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. :)  

Floors- Lowes Style Selections Woods Natural Glazed Porcelain Floor Tile
Paint-  Lowes Valspar Savory Beige (sometimes called Churchill Hotel Ecru)



Cabinets- Lowes Stock White Cabinets
Appliances- Stainless Steel Amana Appliances

Faucet- Home Depot Glacier Bay Mandouri 4 Inch LED High Arc Bathroom Faucet

Paint- Lowes Valspar Savory Beige







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 also a "light greige" but a tad smidge more …

My first attempt at "Meal Planning".....

Okay friends ...well the vote was basically unanimous..97% of you voted "YES" to an easy low carb based meal prepping plan for the week.  So here we are! I say "low carb based" because there are a few carbs as well as some berries.  However the intake is still very low and definitely in an approved amount for any low carb diet.  
A few things to mention... I did not have the containers and like I mentioned in my stories Monday morning I did not have time to head to Target, Walmart or wait for Amazon delivery so I purchased mine at Publix the same day I shopped.  They were very inexpensive anyways so it worked out fine.  I got two sizes of containers (entree and soup/salad) and I also ended up using some of my existing tupperware. 
The four entrees that I made for the week (I can rotate them for lunches and dinners) do not contain any chicken.  This is because I personally don't like the taste of reheated chicken.  If you do then definitely substitute out some of t…
