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.

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.

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.
