Home Sweet Home

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.
