All the wood floors in the flip are going to be refinished on Tuesday! The time is ticking to finish a bunch of projects before that happens. The living room is done, the third coat of white paint made ALL the difference. This room had me at hello. The molding all over the walls is just incredible… I would love love love for this room to be in our own home. We opted to use a custom white in eggshell to match the cabinets in the kitchen so that same white flows throughout the home. We only are using two colors in the house, this white, and Clark & Kensington’s Stormy Weather (a super light gray) to keep with the beachy feel but are doing the floors a contrasting color with Minwax’s Jacobean.
^^ The gorgeous Pottery Barn light will be hanging right here! ^^
Today’s project was painting all the stair risers to get them ready for the floor guys… we want all painting to be done before they come on Tuesday (I don’t think we’ll make that goal but it’ll be pretty close!) ^^
This room is going to be staged with a mixture of pieces I’m purchasing and from around our own home. I found an IKEA Ektorp loveseat on Craigslist the other day for free (!!!) and am going to outfit it with a white slipcover and loads of navy pillows. Last night one of my girlfriends and I picked up the matching IKEA Ektorp sofa for a decent price with a white slipcover (THIS ONE from Joss & Main is almost identical but looks a little higher end for a decent price, it’s a good option for those of you without an IKEA, and we’ve LOVED everything we’ve purchased from Joss & Main!).
I’m going to be using THIS JUTE RUG to stage the living room. I purchased it from a moving sale on Craigslist about four years ago for $50. THIS rug looks identical, has incredible reviews, and is cheaper.
We have little things to do like putting caulking on tiny gaps but other than that, and scraping the door glass, this room is ready for the floor guys! ^^
^^ Can’t get enough of this view. ^^
The coffee table and end table that I’m using to stage are two pieces I’ve found in town in someone’s garbage and refinished. #trashpicker #noshame They are great pieces for either a beachy feel or farmhouse so depending how I stage future houses I’m set with these two substantial pieces (I’ll share more later!).
Behind the couch I’ll put our World Market sofa table (on sale now with 4% back with E-Bates!!!) with the lamps because the living room has no overhead light. I’ll then bring in some color into the space with some beachy artwork.
I am SO excited to share more progress with you! Leave any flipping questions here or shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll do my best to answer any / all!
