DONE!

Well guys, my epic house staging project is finally complete.

Just a little refresher, here's what my house looked like before:







In retrospect, it was a sad, sad little home. Between my pathetic photography skills and piss poor decorating we weren't exactly open house ready.

But after two months of paint, semi-successful sewing projects and one very long trip to Ikea, we have this:

Editorial note: THAT is my un-mitred mirror project. Not bad, right? My dad's forehead still wrinkles up I mention it.












And, yeah. Stacey's amazing photography skills definitely help. I tried to convince her to start a house staging business, but she wouldn't bite. Guess she'll just have to settle for creating gorgeous, custom stationary for the rich and famous. Sigh.

So...I'm done. And now I guess I'm technically supposed to put my house on the market. Good lord, this feels like going out on sub with a manuscript. TERRIFYING.

So when are you coming to fix my house???? Ours is in serious need of repainting, reflooring, and a new porch before we can sell.

You are so made of win! I can't believe this. I cleaned my kitchen...can that count as something?

We're not going to be able to put our house up for sell for a long while but I'm definitely going to have to refer to these pictures when the time comes to staging it. Amazing job!

I'm buying a home and would be interested ONLY if it is relocated to the Jersey Village area in Houston, Texas.

That is all.

Except that your KITCHEN IS MARVELOUS!!!!! I WANT IT! I NEED IT!

You will NEVER see my home as it looks right now. I painted it a few years back and either I was having a seizure at the time or suffering from some sort of palsy. I think it adds character though. At least that's what I tell myself.

Your house looks awesome. Let's just trade.ha

Don't call this a comeback
