Millie: Week 33

I hope you enjoy these weekly updates as I learn to navigate through the business of flipping houses.  This flip, Millie is the most challenging and most exciting yet! You can find more about this house and about my 3 previous flip houses here. I'm so confused as to what day it is that I almost forgot to take progress pics to show you today!  In my defense, I painted until 10 last night and all of the over time is making me a bit loopy.  Luckily we're listing on MONDAY!!  I'll still be working on remaining to-do items after list before the big open house a week from Sunday, but I can finally see a few days off in my future.  I have kittens that need cuddling and a social life that needs severe CPR (hey friends, remember me?).......But, HOUSE!

Oh boy, the kitchen... just you wait.... my favorite kitchen that I've done. ever.  I spent a bunch of time in here this week again, but every second was worth it.


All the original cabinet doors are back up, new hardware is installed on all the cabinets and I finally got to take the film off all the appliances.  It's always like unwrapping Christmas presents.


It's also the first room to get totally cleaned and get a first pass at styling (my favorite part!)


Although, admittedly, hand lettering in chalk is not my forte.  I need lots of practice...


One thing I have down pat, though, is my Craigslist wheeling and dealing.  A few weeks ago, I scored this sweet vintage bar cart off of Craigslist which is a perfect fit for this little nook.


In addition to the spiffy kitchen, the rest of the first floor is looking all shiny and new now that all the floors and the stairs are completely refinished.


The next few days are the most exciting for me by far.  Not only do I get to stage, but I get to see all my visions finally come together! Even though we're listing next week, I'll be saving the big reveals for the following week (sorry!).

If you're not following me on instagram, you're totally missing out of my behind the scenes teasers:


The reveals will be so worth the wait, though- it'll be a week worth of reveals!  This house is far too big to fit all the before and afters into just one post!!  Plus, let's be honest, I could go on about that kitchen for days alone.  Don't worry, I won't... but dude, someone better fall hard for that kitchen.  But I digress.  Back to work!  This house won't finish itself!
