Getting the Rental Cottage ready for the market....




Before I met my husband he had an investment property that he rented out and we have held on to it for the past 9-10 years.  Three years ago we did a major renovation on the property that included floors, a paver driveway and patio, painting, an entirely new kitchen, bathrooms, roof, windows, plumbing..you get the point.  Knowing that we would continue to rent it out I picked out all basic "builder" fixtures and materials. In the meantime the renters have also painted it and added a red brick backsplash in the kitchen.

Next month we are going to list the property because the market is at a high in the neighborhood (and to be quite honest we don't really want rental properties to manage anymore.)  Since the home had been recently renovated I'm only looking to spend a small amount of money getting it ready for the market. Paint, a few new fixtures, deep cleaning of the white tile throughout the house and a simple DIY paint job of the kitchen backsplash.  Below I have listed the colors and materials I have in mind for this project. 

Exterior House Color


 Exterior Door Color

Exterior New White Shutters 

Interior Wall Color


Kitchen/Dining Light Fixture



DIY Kitchen brick backsplash


Since we start on this next week (and will still be technically "vacationing" with family) I'm sure things will be added and changed to these plans! :) So far this is where I'm starting!

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

Backyard Entertaining Project

  Backyard Entertaining Project with Home Depot! DISCLAIMER: This post is sponsored by Home Depot.  All opinions are my own.  Thank you to Home Depot for sponsoring this post.  Post contains affiliate links.     Spring has sprung and this girl is ready for outdoor entertaining and spending evenings under the stars! I know you all have seen our backyard for a couple years now and probably thought we were finished with it.  Well truth is during the daylight hours all is well...but after sunset we could really only entertain and hang out with friends inside the screened lanai where we have market lights strung.  The pool lighting helps a little but my conversation seating located by the fireplace gets SO dark! I tried lanterns, candles, allll the things and it is just too dark to sit and entertain with friends.       At first Elton and I discussed adding a structure.  Possibly a pergola or gazebo but unfortunately my communities HOA did not allow it.  That's when we decided to add som
