Condo Prior Demolition

I took some shots of our little condo pre-demolition so you could see what an ugly duckling it is!  But…not to worry, I have a vision!  We are determined to make it SO CUTE that no one will be able to resist her when she’s finished!!!  As a review, I’m adding a few of my inspiration rooms so you can see what the ultimate goal is with this project!

4We obviously don’t have the fireplace but who needs it in Arizona right?  The ceiling fan is all that matters!  Haha!

  This complex is located directly across the street from one of six golf courses in Sun City, AZ.  What a beautiful retirement community.  I love visiting the area, you see more golf carts on the road than cars.  LOVE it!  I’m not old enough to live there yet but…someday!

Hope you enjoyed the tour.  Demoing starts soon so you’ll be able to follow along with the progress.  It will be sold as a furnished unit and I’ve already picked up a great dining room table with four chairs for just $70.00 I will be refurbishing.   I’ve only been given a $1500.00 budget for furnishings for the entire condo (the price of a sofa at Pottery Barn),  so I will be junkin big time.  I imagine everything but the sofa will be a makeover project.  How exciting is that?  Almost everything in this home will be one-of-a-kind originals by Vintage Street Designs!

Happy Monday!

    This is a great little project to get to grips with … I bet you want to run before you can walk.

    Imagine the satisfaction at the end of the task when you can sit back and say ‘I did this’.

    The transformation will be wonderful, I have no doubts about that.

    Good for you …

    • Aww…thank you so much for your encouraging words! I am looking forward to that day of happy completion! 🙂 Blessings ~ Judy

  6. I can’t wait to see what you do with it! It has such great potential! Good luck and great new site, btw 🙂

  7. Wow, it’s going to be beautiful. You’re inspirations shots are amazing – love the sunroom idea. Perfect for Arizona.

    Can’t wait to see the progress!

    • Thanks Heather! Our closing was delayed until this coming Tuesday. We plan on doing much of the work during the month of May (before it gets too hot). Because of the law restriction, we can’t put it back up on the market for 90 days so it gives us a little more time than we normally have on a flip, which is OK with me!!! 🙂
