I didn’t mention this rookie mistake on the Lessons Learned section of the last post, but now I can’t avoid it. *Gulp* I’m ashamed to admit this, but I took “after” pictures of the Hole-y Colonial flip house AT NIGHT.
To my defense, this was before I knew anything about photography and the fact that nothing is more important to a clear photo than natural light. Everyone starts somewhere, right?
One biggest cost savings at this house flip stemmed from keeping these kitchen cabinets. Its solid cabinets were beautiful and in great condition. They also reminded us of our own home on Donna Place, before we painted them. Although the countertops weren’t what we’d normally choose, they looked nice, so we selected a interior paint palette to compliment them.
Here is the opposite angle of the living room in this traditional colonial flip house, but this time, in daylight! So much better. Don’t you love these built-ins and wainscoating?
If you remember from this post, the floors in the upstairs bathroom were hexagon tiles, an ugly tanish-yellow. But, we epoxied them a bright white, which put them back on-trend and updated entire room! Fresh paint on the walls, a remnant piece of granite counters, new fixtures and this cost-effective bathroom makeover rung up at right arount $2,000!
Unfortunately, I couldn’t find any after pictures of the master bathroom we showed you. Basically we just opened it up, raised the ceiling height, re-tiled and installed a frameless glass shower door, making it appear larger.
