When the opportunity arose for my first design flip, to say I was ecstatic is an understatement. I absolutely love staging homes and decorating, but designing and flipping homes has always been a dream of mine. I have watched about 2468735134 shows on HGTV constantly daydreaming of the day I would finally get to put my skills to the test. Thanks to John “Dan” Bethel Real Estate Broker that dream was finally going to be a reality!
Dan warned me that this house was not pretty. He said it would be a true test of my abilities. It was old, outdated, and quite frankly had a terrible layout. From the minute I walked into this house I was smitten. This house was 4 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, around 1500 square feet. I immediately saw through the multi colored walls and paneling and fell in love with the original hardwood floors, design potential, and overall charm.
As the gears started to turn a few things were certain.
- The paneling had to go.
- The accordion door needed replaced
- The cabinets needed painted
- The bathroom was a complete gut.
Luckily, almost everything was cosmetic which made my job a lot easier! Within a few months, my first design flip was complete! Prepare yourself for drool worthy before and afters. Shes a beauty!
