It’s the most wonderful time of the year…COUGH, COUGH! Ugh. Every year at this time I seem to pick up a little cold but this year both my husband and I were taken out by what we’re calling THE PLAGUE. We had to cancel our friends and neighbors on Thanksgiving and send the food to our friends’ house who were amazing pinch hitters.
Thankfully, we’re much better but it’s definitely thrown a wrench in our flip house reno schedule. The best-laid plans….
Our favorite handyman (my Stepdad) has been hard at work at the flip house taking care of all little things that need to be done before the big stuff can be started. Switch plates off, small nail holes being repaired so the painting can begin and a general cleanup. I don’t know what we’d do without him!
As I write this I’m mentally going through the house so I can get an idea of paint colors. Do I do everything in the same neutral off-white so whoever makes this their forever home can customize it? Do I go with some of the colors I would pick, like a blue for the kitchen and a soft gray for the living/dining room? Decisions, decisions. I’d appreciate any feedback you want to give me. I’ve started the pink bedroom in gray and so far I’m liking it. I’m also looking at exterior colors but we won’t need that for a while.
When I’m out showing houses to potential buyers I hear that the kitchen and the layout of the home are important. This house has a great floor plan and once we open the kitchen up just a little I think it will be perfect.
