Home Staging

A dear customer of Flutterby is selling her home and she asked if i would stage her home prior to her realtor taking photos.
This home has so much character, and Mary has a great eye...that this was an easy project to accomplish!

All the curtains are made from 9x12 painters cloths available at Lowes (around $20 ea.) and cut in half.  My friend MaryJo, who is the sewing wizard, made all of the panels and also the slip covered furniture in the office/library.

Mary and Del (we should all wish we had husbands like him) gave the kitchen such a simple face-lift just by painting everything (cabinets included), new hardware, new laminate on counter tops and subway tile backsplash from a left-over bathroom project.  I believe they spent less than $500 and the transformation is incredible!
The only decorative items (other than fabric) that were purchased, were a pair of buffet lamps for the dining room at a cost of $69.00.  Everything i used was already there...including branches and hydrangea from Marys yard.
Simple idea's that cost very little....
Covered a lamp base with left-over burlap.
Spray painted a lamp base white that was green.
Painted and glazed a 1980's coffee table (in the living room).
Hope you enjoyed the tour.



WOW! Looks great Kim! Such a warm cozy house. Hey does Mary Jo do upholstery? Need a couple chairs done....Thanks!
