We have made it all the way to the basement in this adventure in staging. This is the fifth part of the Cannon House Staging series. If you’re interested in having me stage your house for sale or in having me help you re-design part or all of your own living space, send me an email. If you’re looking to stage your own home for sale, you may find this useful.
The house has quite a large basement with plenty of room for this playroom. Before:
With the addition of a chair cover, it looks something like the Before of the formal living room. After:
I do love the Keep Calm thing, and was happy I found a place for it.
Just squeaking in an accessory for this kids table. Phew!
I did make one more trip to the store to furnish the downstairs bathroom. It is a bathroom after all. The bathroom is attached to the playroom on one side and to a small bedroom on the other. As in the other bathrooms, the vanity here had been fairly recently updated. This time with a modern, black vanity which I took as the inspiration for the rest of the guest suite. Before:
Yet again, I feel like it’s a better world when those frosted glass shower enclosures get a little dose of pretty. Before:
This ended up being maybe my favorite of the bathrooms with that charcoal and white shower curtain. It looks sharp as a needle up in here. After:
The basement bedroom (with what appears to be laundry hook up from a previous incarnation) was a little on the plain side, and needed some extra light.
By now I had used most everything in the house in staging and had delved back into the garage for a few things. First, I reoriented the bed to make the room feel larger. Then, I brought in two lamps from the garage and a few of my own pillows. Finally, I framed some more story book pages to finish this bedroom off.
The green and yellow color scheme with the high contrast damask and swirl prints in black and white really make this look like an inviting basement suite for guests.
This large TV room had super plush carpetting, the only workable layout, and a rather loved couch to start. Before:
I just covered the couch which had seen better days and added some more accent pillows.
And that’s the house. I’d buy it. Wouldn’t you?
Now WHO WANTS TO SEE MY HOUSE IN PERSON?!
My builder has a final Open House (before we move in) scheduled for July 26th and 27th. If you are in the area, I would love to invite you to come tour the house. You do NOT need to be a) in the market for a home or for a builder NOR do you need to be b) best buds/at all acquainted with me. Idle curiosity is perfectly legitimate. If you are interested in seeing the house, please send me an email and I’ll give you the Open House information.
And YES! That means we’re moving in in August. Wooooohooooo!!
