Wrinkle Buster … have you tried it?! -via BuzzFeed

Whoever came up with the idea of just spraying a garment to release the wrinkles is a genius!!!  This is especially true of anyone of us having to get back into the groove of a morning work routine or truly just hates to spend time ironing.  Can’t imagine who that would be … yuck!  Whether preparing for the day or staging a home, can you imagine the time you will save with this product?!  Can’t wait to buy two: one bottle for my business and personal use as well as one additional, whole bottle just for my son, son number three that is … the one who had to be guided to YouTube to learn how to iron!   Continue Reading

Declutter, where do you start?

PicMonkey CollageB.AIt’s now a new year and a chance to get our homes refreshed and decluttered, especially if you might be thinking of selling your home! In today’s market, the buyer is looking for a move-in ready home with plenty of space and storage.  If we take a look around our homes with a fresh eye, or a buyer’s eye, I’m sure we can determine the need to reduce the amount of ‘stuff’ visible as well as what is not visible (i.e. closets, pantries, cabinets, etc) in each room.

Whether you are thinking of selling your home or just wanting to refresh your space, the article below by Laura Gaskill from Houzz.com helps get you focused with tips and a plan to declutter each room, either for your own enjoyment or to get your home move-in ready!  Start decluttering today!

Power of Power Washing!

Hi!  So glad you’re joining me on my first blog. As a home stager, I am always seeking ideas on how to make a client’s home stand out among the many in today’s DFW market.  One of the first viewings of a property is online and each home must shine as did this home when its curb appeal caught the buyer’s eye.

BEFORE – Where trees are near …

So I just had to share an ‘Aha moment’ when one of the most impacting curb appeal tasks made such a major difference to this home’s curb appeal. The home was in relatively good shape including a well manicured landscape. There was only a short list needed to be a stand out in the MLS listings. The short list of “to-do’s” included such items as painting the front door (stain was weather worn), new front door handle, painting the new garage door to match with the other, window/screen washing, etc.  Yet one of the more obvious needs was the need to power wash the driveway and sidewalk. Was it worth it?

Absolutely!  Just like in another blog article I found called  “The Pressure’s On”, take a look where you will see additional before/after pics of power washing brick.  This article also guides you on a DIY effort which is great for those that love to do themselves.  This home was done professionally dues to the years of build up. Your home stager can help recommend vendors to take on this job; especially, when you already have enough to do!
