Because why not add to the chaos? Introducing Project Lake Crest!


      In the midst of the chaos that comes along with the holidays...and xmas shopping..and building a pool...and myself signing on to not one but two Christmas campaigns this year my husband and I decided lets end the year with one more fixer upper!

Introducing Project Lake Crest!

This flip will be a little different than our regular because this  property is fairly new.  We do not need to do any plumbing, electrical, roof, gutting of kitchens and baths...you get the picture.  However it still won't be easy since the place is in bad shape.  Like I have to shower as soon as I get home after we visit this place. I honestly don't know how this even happens to a home.  It's BAD. It needs all new flooring, paint (every square inch), mirrors, appliances, blinds, fixtures...all that good stuff.  We are keeping the kitchen and bathroom cabinetry and painting them.  We have never done this in a flip house before because honestly usually the kitchen cabinets are falling off at the hinges.  These however can be salvaged.  I'm sure something will come up...it always does...  but for now renovation officially begins tomorrow morning! 

Now for the good stuff. This home has a lot of potential.  It is in a great neighborhood with good schools.  The grounds are very well taken care of and from our town home you get lake views from EVERY single window.  It's quite beautiful and I think once you aren't distracted by the weird smells and gross carpets this place will truly be a little paradise for a family.  It has three bedrooms and three bathrooms plus an outdoor patio.  The layout is nice and open and the window placement is spectacular!

So come on in and check it out!

If you're not sure what you are looking at...believe me I wasn't either. They tried painting the concrete floors, they added some crazy sandy texture to the bedroom walls..including that roping detail hot glued all around the blue bedroom.  It will be a lot of work to fix this place up but like I said the potential is there.

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

Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas Blog Hop

I am so excited to share that Sunny Chic Home is a part of the 2017  Treetopia Christmas Blog Hop! This years theme couldn't be more perfect... Treetopia's Merry CHIC-Mas!  Treetopia wants to help you add some sparkle to your holidays by celebrating a glitz and glam Christmas with the Treetopia bloggers! I am kicking off the season with a very Merry CHIC-Mas themed master bedroom! Make sure to check out the four other fabulous bloggers this week! You all know by now I love me some Christmas spirit in the bedroom and in our new home the master is light and bright so I wanted to continue that in the holiday decor.   I chose to use the GORGeous Treetopia 7' prelit  Tinkerbell Silver Christmas Tree . The silvery tinsel tips add such a magical touch and the width of 47" make the tree such a great piece and perfect CHIC-mas addition to any room.   (You can also check out all the dazzling silver trees Treetopia offers by clicking  HERE

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
