Out of desperation [like I needed to sign up for another TV station] I started watching The Handmaids Tale.  I had heard so much about it that I fell to the pressure and's the kind of show that makes you squirm in your seat.....

The acting is SO good and I can see why many of the cast have won awards.  Still......I am only on season one episode 6 and I'm hooked. 

Today I have the last few pictures of the Boulder flip.  The laundry room, and 2 bathrooms.


So....this was a mess.  You can see on the right hand side that the HVAC was smack dab front and center in the room!  The door leads to the garage and the opening on the left is just a storage area.  While the green paint is lovely.....


Here is the listing picture.  A little tile on the floor really helped and some added detail of the vertical shiplap.

All the doors [throughout the house] and trim in the laundry room are painted Benjamin Moore Hudson Bay.

They were hesitant  but I'm tired of gray doors:)

The bathrooms in this house had been remodeled only 2 years ago.  While it wouldn't be something that we would have picked out it seemed crazy to rip them out.  Here is the solution.


Kept the floor on the main level bath. But say bye bye to the vanity and everything else.

Here is a pic I took and it shows more of the floor which I'm not mad at.....

A cute little Urban Outfitters towel ring!

The master bath before....

Whoa....where to start.

So we kept the shower tile and floors.

A new vanity, coat of paint and lighting really helped to take the focus off the tile.  Thank God....something had to right?  Nice little Target mirror.

Sometimes when you are doing a flip you have to decide where the best place to put your money will be.  I think the fact that it sold in 2 days means not doing a total gut job on the baths was the right decision.

This is the hallway going up the stairs to the master and den.

And that is the end of the latest flip.  Can't wait for the next one!

The countdown in on....16 days until I cross the pond and head to Casablanca.  You will probably get tired of hearing me blab on about this.

Oh yeah one more thing.  As you know I am not very ambitious in the kitchen but somebody told me about this.....I tried it and....yummy!

Take a cast iron pan and spray the bottom.  Put a piece of salmon in it [I used the Trader Joe's salmon].  Season...I used squeezed lime, sea salt, pepper, chili lime seasoning and threw a few capers on it.

Put it into a cold oven and set the temperature to broil and the timer to 20 min.  whoa. perfection.

So the first time I used the regular setting and it needed 5 more minutes.  The second time I used the "convection" setting and kapow....perfection.

This is probably a "thing" and there is some 
eye-rolling out there while thinking....DUH

I felt the same way about Outlander! I need something else now that the season is over so I will try the Tale!

Be a-u-ti-ful! The closeup pic of the counter top, mirror and flower branch in the vase is so spa-like. This whole house project is so inspiring!

Gorgeous as always. Could you tell me where the black rimmed mirror is from the first bathroom? What stunning change in the before and after photos.
