UPDATE: The Little Ranch That Could...our latest flip house progress and pics!

Hey everybody! I figured since I'm posting updates sporadically on both my Facebook and Instagram page I would combine it all in one space so you can really see the before status of the house and the progress and materials we have chosen.  We are hoping to get this house on the market next Friday before we leave for vacation.  
This week and next week is all the fun design stuff like the kitchen, bathrooms and fixtures.  Over the past 3 weeks we have had to really renovate and restore the house "bones".  Lots of rotten wood replaced, leveling the floors (and the house!!) plumbing issues, building closets in the bedrooms and closing off two doors and adding one window! Phew, I think I got it all.  
When it comes to the exterior of the house we are building a new larger front porch and steps with some travertine and restaining the back deck.  Some tropical landscape to compliment the new exterior paint colors and we should be all done! 


Some BEFORE Pictures..





The door straight ahead is one of the doors we closed off. (Pictures below) We will be wrapping the new kitchen cabinets all the way around those two walls.  The other door leads out to steps down to the side driveway. 



Two dumpsters full after demo! Always a good feeling! 





This picture cracks me up! This is our contractor after he jacked up the left corner of the house he discovered the hot water tank wasn't connected to anything so he removed the bathroom floors and went under the house!!!

Repairing all the ceilings.


Framing in some closets! I was so amazed at how well the guys framed these in.  I just showed them where I wanted closets and tada! 



The list of materials for the house. (All this info is on my FB page but I will also be sharing a detailed list once the house is finished.)

I chose this new color (to me) for the entire inside of the house. I usually go with a more "greige" color but with the cool toned floors I wanted something more to a true gray color. 


Outdoor  lights! I chose copper lanterns for the outside.  There is one at the front door and one at the side door.  Also you can see my favorite BHG Live Better mirrors I always buy from Walmart.  I found a pewter colored one for this bathroom.  Also today I picked up the track lights for the kitchen.  


Replacing the old windows! (You can also see the new exterior color in these pictures)



Now this will be the nerve wrecking part of next week for me.  This pretty blue tile is making its way into the shower as an accent against the subway tile...here's hoping I like it! I'm thinking of staging this house with light blue accents to keep the whole look cohesive thoughout the home.



AHH! Those floors! These photos are from earlier in the week before grout but still they are just GORGeous!! 


Okay! Hopefully, fingers crossed, I will have the finished kitchen and bathroom pictures next week! I'm dying to see the new backsplash we chose too!! 

XOXO

Our Master Bedroom Flooring

Last night as I was showing a neighbor around the house (for a girls wine night..how fun right?!!) I realized that I hadn't shared our master flooring and office flooring!! You guys this floor was literally a STEAL! Every single person that has come to see the new house LOVES these floors!

Okay, so back to the beginning... when we were picking out the carpet for upstairs my husband and I both decided we didn't want the master bedroom to get new carpet.  It is the only bedroom on the first floor and the entire rest of the house already had tile.  I personally did not want wood tile in the bedroom just because I felt the need for something "softer".  Getting new hardwoods wasn't exactly in the budget so we decided to check out laminates.  Now, let me start by saying I have never liked laminate. You all know as soon as we buy fixer upper properties we ALWAYS rip out the laminate.  I just think it looks cheap.  Well...I was so impressed with all the laminate floors th…

One Room Challenge (Week 6) Dining Room REVEAL

It's week SIX! Our dining room is officially done and the One Room Challenge has come to an end...
Check out all the ORC reveals here....Guest Participants Before I get into all the pictures I want to thank my partners on this project! Without them this room would never have come together as it did!  So a BIG "thank you" to 
Lexmod Furniture WallPops Bealls Outlet
Lets start off by taking a look back six weeks at the dining room "Before".


The room sat pretty empty for a few months after we moved in but now it is anything but empty! 
She's all DONE!



When I come down the stairs now I can't help but love my new view! I am so happy I went with the side accent wall and not the wall opposite the window!  I think it makes the room feel bigger.

Our newest addition (Blue Rug Obsession)

Good Morning Friends!  Over break we added another BLU-tiful rug to the household.   In case you haven't noticed blue is kind of the running theme in this house (Our Coastal Craftsman) and I can't seem to get enough.  The kitchen needed a runner but I couldn't find one that was the exact length I wanted so instead I ordered a 3x5 rug.  This post contains affiliate links provided by Wayfair.
When you walk in my house you see the dining room rug (Link to buy dining room rug HERE ) and it has so many beautiful colors and keeps the room feeling light and bright.  The kitchen has a lot of light too but I didn't want something AS light just because I knew it would get a lot of traffic/ and or kitchen accidents.  



I almost went with the blue family room rug because FOR REAL it is SO gorgeous and SO soft (Link to buy family room rug HERE ) but I knew I wanted to make sure I had some aqua and just different shades of blue really to play with in the kitchen) 



So when I found th…
