With 9 days left to our March 1st listing date goal, we're busily trying to finish up the house. It's finally coming together. Let me show you what we've done this past week.
It was a cluttered mess.
Jon and I spent hours painting moulding, doors, trim, spackling walls, painting walls. We painted it the same "Balsam" as the living room but it looks more gray in the lower light. I think it's very soothing.
I spent 4 hours shopping for final decorative touches Saturday night. I don't like shopping and I even had to go to the, gulp, mall. But, in the end all that shopping was worth it. I found a ton of great things that I love and a lot of them were on sale.
Mark came over to put the quarter round in the kitchen.
Almost finished. It still needs something. I'm thinking maybe a small plant or orchid on the left side? Suggestions?
I love these vases I found this past weekend. The one on the left is from Michael's and it was only $5 on clearance. The other two are from Walmart for $4-$9 each.
And now for my new favorite rooms. I can't believe their transformations. I'll do proper before and afters once we've listed the house.
The master bath was all but forgotten about before as far as decor.
So, we're in the home stretch. I have a long list of the last minute things we need to do before listing the house but they're easy things now. The real estate agent is coming tonight to start measuring and start the paperwork. It's starting to feel real now and I'm so excited. Soon we can really begin looking at houses and trying to find the right farm for us.
