If there is one topic Chris and I have revisited and talked about for more than a decade, it's renovating houses. We've both enjoyed learning new skills on our own homes for over 20 years, so it made sense. Cameron and Haley grew up and are busy with their own lives, I closed the brick & mortar and began working at a slower pace.... the timing suddenly felt right. The next thing you know we were going for it!
So after lots of house searching and a few losing bids, we purchased our first official flip!
Last week we did demo, opened up the main living area, and started some exterior work. The list is long with projects to make this 1950's house a stunner! I"m so excited to stretch my design wings a little wider, and Chris is looking forward to making it all happen.
You all KNOW I'm so excited to get to the staging part of the process. I plan to fill the house with some of my vintage finds, as well as some custom furniture or lighting pieces. All of those items will be available for sale! Once the house has sold, the unique pieces will be posted for sale. You will also be welcome to pre-purchase them at an Open House (to be picked up after the house has sold).
Here is a little look at my mood board or this first project...
Our summer is all booked! In addition to the day and evening work, giving up or weekends will totally be worth it! We plan to do the bulk of the work ourselves, since getting our hands dirty is something we enjoy. Although, we both admit it's a little harder with each passing year... middle age will do that to ya!
We share all the action on our Intagram Stories, as well as posting pics of the work and inspiration for the project on our feed. Be sure to follow us there!
Who Am I?
I've tried it all...hair stylist/faux painter/stay at home mom/jewelry artist/late in life college student/retail shop owner/design consultant/home stager. Through it all my favorite things to do have been sharing DIY ideas, thrifting, and making something out of nothing.
