Project Fair Oaks....That's a wrap!


It's almost April and we just finished up the first project of 2017 which isn't ideal but it happens.  Between working on our own home and being out of the country twice over the past two month we were a little overwhelmed to say the least! It's all good though! We took our time and it paid off because the condo sold in just one day after a bit of a bidding war! (WooHoo!)  So in the words Tarek El Moussa..."Time to look for another house to Flip!"

In the meantime lets get to all the details shall we!  This project was a total gut job (just see the pictures below) but we knew it had a lot of potential! 












First thing we did was empty the place...bathrooms, kitchen, floors, baseboards, even the ceilings had to go! After prepping the place with a new ceilling and drywall (as needed) we painted in PAINT: BEHR
 Pixel White.



This looks like a light gray but I swear in person it took on almost a light gray with a blue tint which worked out great because it only helped out with the beachy feel I wanted. 

FLOORS: Cumberland Cafe Wood Plank Floors from Floor & Decor


LIGHTING: Lantern Chandelier from WORLD MARKET  (and yes I know that should be an Edison bulb AGAIN lol. Obviously my husband does not know what that means!)










DRAPES: Curtain Rod and Drapes from IKEA (LENDA Curtains)



Opening up this kitchen was a must! We did have to loose some cabinets but we enlarged the counter space and the overall open feeling of it made it worth it!

CABINETS: Shaker White Cabinets and granite from a Local Private Installer.


BACKSPLASH: Carrara White Hexagonal Marble from FLOOR & DECOR


APPLIANCES: AMANA Stainless Steel from HOME DEPOT (Stove, Hood, Dishwasher and Fridge) 


CABINET HARDWARE from WALMART



SHOWER TILE: Pure Spa Blue 8mm from FLOOR & DECOR
Floor Tile: 2" White Square tiles from FLOOR & DECOR


MASTER VANITY: Home Depot
MIRROR: WALMART
FIXTURE: HOME DEPOT



MASTER BATH TILE: PURE SNOW Subway tile 3x6 from FLOOR & DECOR
 I fell in love with this pure snow glass tile because it reflected the wall color which is hard to show in pictures but trust me it was oh so pretty! 

Well folks, that's a wrap! Hopefully the closing goes smoothly and we can begin to search out new properties soon! 

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…
