My last post was a popular one and for good reason!  What a beautiful home!  I wasn't surprised to see it SOLD in one week!

I don't always feel that way.  In fact, I just staged  another house that I wasn't as confident in initially.  However, after some renovation, cleaning and staging AND most importantly, a Realtor who priced it right, it too sold in one week!  Here are a few before and afters of that one! Be sure to leave me a note and let me know what you think! Let's start with a before shot... and plastic flowers.

I removed the curtains to let light in but the Realtor elected to leave the curtain rods for new owners.

Like the painting?  It's one of mine called "Wandering Xander."  I painted it the night  my son and I picked up a stray dog that we named Xander.

So... on to the next one!  If my activities are any indication, the real estate market is picking up!

Thanks for stopping by!

Wow, so this is called staging a house? You decorate it to make it look more homely for selling....? What a fun job! :D Looks like you redid the kitchen floors as well!
