This week I shared on Facebook a brief snapshot of the living room transformations in all three flips. After revealing the midcentury living room in Flip 3, I was inspired to take a stroll down memory lane. So I hope you’ll indulge me as I expand on this little stroll. The house that started it… Continue reading Living Room Flips:Before & Afters
I am branching out in my social media presence! I have created a Facebook page for my blog, The Bachelorette Pad Flip. I hope you’ll take a second and like the page. I’m really excited to use that forum to share snip-its of the house-flipping adventures–shopping for hardware, repairing major leaks, finished products, etc. It’s… Continue reading Get Social

Also, in Flip #2, it was A LOT of tile….a huge kitchen, oversized laundry room, and a… Continue reading How I Laid a Tile Floor WITHOUT Owning a Wet Saw
Since I started this blog after I bought, flipped, and sold Flip #1, I didn’t really progress most of the projects like I have on my last two flips. I’ve had some people ask for some better before and after pics of that flip. It’s always fun for me to go down memory lane on… Continue reading Throwback Before & Afters: Flip 1
