If you don’t know I purchased a new home in late October of 2018. I had all these grandiose plans of updates I wanted to make immediately. My pockets and plans didn’t match.
I love flamingos. I don’t know why. I just love them.
1” paint brush
Painters Tape (optional)
Door Knobs from Amazon https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B074JM7H7F/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o02_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1
Time: 1-4 hrs. depending on experience
I ordered the flamingos from CaliMomDesigns on Etsy. Each flamingo is 6″ tall and approximately 3″ wide. The decals are sold by the sheet. There are 20 flamingo decals per sheet. I purchased a copper, pink and dark blue sheets.
I removed everything from my pantry. I removed any marks on the walls with a Mr. Clean Eraser. It works great on flat paint.
I didn’t know how to remove the wire shelving. I wanted to keep it because the shelving because I wasn’t prepared to pay for a shelving new system. I had to paint around the wall attached pieces; a pain.
I painted my wall with Behr Premium Plus Ultra Interior Semi-Gloss Enamel Ultra Pure White 3750. I didn’t not like this paint. My walls were flat off white; however, it took several coats to cover. I let the paint dry 24 hours between coats.
I marked my spacing with a level. I placed the decals approximately 12″ apart horizontally and each row is about 4″ apart.
Let me start off by saying I am very happy that I completed the NACA process. It was worth the stress and the years removed from my life (exaggerating).
From Naca’s Website
The Neighborhood Assistance Corporation of America (“NACA”) is a non-profit, community advocacy and homeownership organization. NACA’s primary goal is to build strong, healthy neighborhoods in urban and rural areas nationwide through affordable homeownership. NACA has made the dream of homeownership a reality for thousands of working people by counseling them honestly and effectively, enabling even those with poor credit to purchase a home or modify their predatory loan with far better terms than those provided even in the prime market.
Part I: The Workshop
I knew it was time to purchase a home because my rent increased by $80 per month. I owed thousands in income tax (not exaggerating); long story. My ex-manager told me about the Naca program. After a little research, I decided against it due to the horror stories. I put my house dreams to the side due to not have 20% to down payment. I refused to pay PMI. FHA required PMI. NOPE!!!
One day in late-Feb 2017, I woke up and said I am over this apartment life.
I went to Naca.com to find a workshop. It is the first step of the process. In Charlotte, NC the workshops were full for months. I decided to look in cities around Charlotte. I found a workshop Blythewood, SC.

I fell off. One thing after another. Major dental work, vacation and laziness are all of my excuses. I’m back at it though. My personal goal is to lose 30lbs by my birthday, July 27.
It’s Friday and a three day weekend. The down side is Aunt Flo came into town on her broom stick; I am exhausted and my body aches. I still have to get my workout done.
Day 3 Total Body Cardio
Plank, plank, plank…. Total Body is plank heavy. I HATE PLANKS. I felt like quitting twice but made it to the end. After the workout me knees ached and popped. Nothing unbearable but noticeable.
Total Body Cardio is over the most difficult workout so far.
Equipment Required: Nada
No throwing up today!!! I did 100% of the modified routine. I have zero nada coordination, therefore, some of the foot movements became tricky. The interval stretching breaks were amazing. It was the quick break that I needed.
