Home Staging Needed In Virginia

August 21st, 2016 · 1 Comment

Thank you to our reader Della who sent these photos of a Spring Grove, Virginia home.

It’s not a good sign when you see clog remover right next to the sink.  And there could be kids living in this house, so that becomes a safety issue too.

Hopefully that’s not a fly strip hanging from the light.

If they’re fishing for complements on home staging, they’ve come to the wrong blog.  What’s that saying?  Spare the rod, spoil the child?  More like, display the rods, spoil the sale.

Back Splash Ideas

August 19th, 2016 · 2 Comments

Plain walls in kitchens are boring.  Why not spice things up with peel-n-stick vinyl squares on the walls?

Wait.  If that’s the shower, why is the toilet paper holder in the shower area?  Maybe this is an old house that only has a bathtub and no shower?
