You would think that with our home on the market we would call it quits with putting $$ into it. Truth be told, we cannot stop. In fact, all of these last-minute additions we are putting together I think are a true winner for any buyer. We’ve added window treatments in a few rooms, stained some wood here and there… and now our list of final check off’s seem to be taunting us to do more. We are having our first open house next weekend, and have a bigger project to be tackled prior to that. We will share more this week… but we couldn’t be more excited/honored to take part in it!
Now, our darling kitchen has to be one of my favorite rooms in the house. It was a room that started off making your skin crawl, and has turned into a space I spend hours and hours in each day. Look at the start of this room…
Ahh! Right?? Then we transitioned into putting in new cabinets, countertops, sink, faucet, etc… and painted the walls a granny smith green that somehow tickled us years ago. It was a HUGE improvement.
It only took us a few years in our house until our tastes in paint color/decor changed. Which I think is all of the fun in home ownership. Your choices will always change, and that is a good thing. Don’t be so hard on yourself about a comforter you purchased, wall art, or rugs, give yourself a break. You live, you learn. So glad we learned granny smith green was not our deal.
We painted the walls “Stone White,” and the rest of the space received all of the final touches these past few months. Brand new appliances, hardware, wall art, rugs, painted shiny black pantry and window treatments (my favorite addition).
We were slightly hesitant to adding more window treatments to the rooms, all in all because they stay with the home. But, a little money invested does go a long way and the difference in the space is SO much better. We also did a bamboo shade in the main bathroom, and are trying to fight the urge to do the entire upstairs. What do you think? Go big and sell your home? We just might! We purchased these roman bamboo shades from good ol’ Home Depot. You can find them here…Home Depot – Palisades Bamboo Roman Shade I love the contrast the shades add, how they brighten up the wood work and compliment the flooring.
What a slow, but steady transformation of this space. It just goes to show that you do not need to do everything at once. Take it slow, take your time, wait till you find the things you love, and the space will come together. It’s a journey… don’t stop believin’ Haha… why do I think I am funny?
