As many of you know, my husband and I recently bought a house, which we are currently transforming into our new home. When I first called my husband to tell him I had found "the one" he was surprised and happy to hear it needed NO WORK....
"We don't have to do a thing!" I told him.
However, on my second visit, to show hubby the house.... let's just say that I must have left my rose-colored glasses in the car.
The burgundy dining room was not going to work, and it really needed a more impressive light fixture.
The mint green powder room also needed a new color....new light fixtures and larger mirror would be in order.
Pink master bedroom??? I don't think so.
The huge mirrors covering the wall in the master bath were disturbing. New light fixtures needed here too.
We should upgrade the kitchen counter and add tile to the backsplash.
The rest of the house was so white....so very white.
As we left the house, my husband accused me of
BAIT AND SWITCH
He was right...I had misled him a tiny bit. But it wasn't intentional. I was an emotional buyer when I first saw the house, and I was all Home Stager the second time around.
I had looked at so many unacceptable houses previously to finding this one and I was so relieved, to find a house that I could call home, that I saw right past those minor details.
The house really was move-in ready for most people - just not move-in ready for a Home Stager!
No self respecting Home Stager and blogger would transform their new home without sharing, so stay tuned for plenty of "before" and "after" pics!
