Really! For the last 2 ½ weeks I have been staging a huge house (a real biggie!) for real estate sale. It will be listed for $$ million so a lot of pre-presentation work went into this house.
In total I counted 25 people who at some point throughout the 2 ½ weeks worked on this house. At times it felt like we were ants crawling all over the house! Bless the homeowners for being so patient as they lived in the house while all the work was being done.
To get this home ready for Open House presentation I had all the wall-to-wall carpeting ripped out and replaced with hardwood. Interesting what you sometimes find underneath carpet. Faux red brick!!!!!
The stairs were treated to new updated wool Berber carpet. The mint green walls were painted Benjamin Moore White Down, the dark paneling was painted Cloud White and the wallpaper border was stripped off.
All the outside fencing and decking were re-stained to make them look updated.
The garden was tended to. All the windows were washed. A cleaning crew went ‘full-on’ inside for a day.
And the homeowner’s contents were edited. (!!!) Then I did my thing – staging and propping.
Needless to say the house looked beautiful in the end.
I love ‘playing house’!
I was so focused on this house I almost missed a beautiful part of spring – the blossoms!
