You get extra points if know where the title of this post originated……
First, apologies for being an absentee blogger. I honestly was enjoying my brief time away from home for pleasure and work. It felt good not doing anything….really good, so I decided to ride it for as long as I could. However, I can say that I am quite happy to be back! I am even happier that I have finished up the yoga studio (pics to come shortly) and am starting two new projects. The first project is why I went to Vegas — it is a kitchen update for a lovely couple who bought a second home in Sin City. The other project is closer to home and is a total gut job!
Yippee! My first gut job – walls are coming down baby! I am gonna make it RAIN! Well the contractor will….and it’s only the kitchen that is being gutted, but it still hasn’t dampened by excitement over the project. It is a triplex in the Castro neighborhood of San Francisco which the owners are looking to convert into a vacation/executive rental. So far they have completed one apartment and this is the second to be renovated. If all goes well with this one, my fingers are crossed that I will get the third apartment to redo.
So today, I visited the site and was giddy with the progress…..of course it looks like nothing at the moment, but that is part of the excitement. It’s a blank slate ready to be molded and shaped. Okay, I am starting to scare myself and sound slightly like Bob Ross of PBS fame. In any case, here are some before and progress pictures of the project……..
The turn around on this project is going to be quick – less than a month, so the next three weeks will be a blur of shopping (yes), painting (by a professional – double yes) and staging (Yes, YEs, YES!). Get buckled in – it’s gonna be a fun, albeit, bumpy ride!
On a side note, I am throwing together an impromptu Mother’s Day tablescape, so stay tuned for that as well as a new give away!
May is starting off with a BANG! How is your May going?
