As many of you know, I made a gigantic leap and purchased my first home. When I was a teen, I set a goal to buy my first place by 22 years old. While most people my age were buying designer purses and expensive makeup, I was saving. Though I am a few years behind – I was finally in the position to be able to accomplish this goal…and learn a few things in the process.
So friends, here is the big reveal. It has been a long, trying process to say the least. One month and 2 days behind schedule, but it’s DONE. Yippee.

The condo I bought is a 2 bedroom, 2 bath – around 940 sq. feet. There’s a kitchen, wood burning fireplace and a decent size patio with great views! I did about a 90% remodel, and will get to the bathrooms once I win the lotto.
Here’s what I did:
© Dark hardwood floors throughout common area
© Speckled/tan carpet in both bedrooms
© Greystone (by Kelly Moore) paint on all walls, with white ceilings
© Simple white baseboards throughout
© White cabinets with brushed nickel hardware
© Cement colored quartz countertops
© All new stainless steel appliances (I got a fridge, stove, microwave and dishwasher for under $1,700!) and a huge stainless steel single bowl sink
© Stained wood shelves in the kitchen
© Tan, white & stainless steel tiles around the fireplace with a white hearth & mantel
God is good friends. God is good.
