So our home is up for sale. Mixed emotions, but it’s exciting. If all else fails, I, at least, got my house to exactly how I want it, and I finished all the projects I’ve been procrastinating for the last couple of years.
I got my kitchen the cleanest it’s ever been.
Goodbye clutter on the fridge.
I rearranged my shelves. A new look is refreshing.
I already posted the photo about my pantry. But I organized all my other closets too.
The linen closet.
The study closet.
My side of the closet.
The accessory section was lots of work but so wonderful to use now.
Before, all my jewelry was either crammed in my jewelry box or laid on the shelf. Now, thanks to my handy dandy cork board creation everything is on display. Due to my LOVE of all things accessory, I needed multiple sections.
but then it got to0 long, and I knew little hands would pull at it, so I made an overflow board.
But I still had more, so I found this key ring at B,B&B, and converted it to this.
Then there was the issue of my bracelet fixation (aside from my earring and necklace ones). This discovery on the same B,B&B trip suited perfectly! I realize I will need another one of these as well as the key ring, and some more cork board…for my future fixation purchases.
Oh, and on the topic of fixations--Look at how nicely my shoes are lined up…
My Dad built those shelves for me. Notice the gold flip-flops? I just bought them today so they don’t have a spot on the shelf yet—may need to spill more onto Sean’s side, sorry sweetie.
This was my scarf solution. Wish I thought of this a long time ago. BTW-scarfs are becoming my new thing. I have some more that are nicely folded because they are fancier.
Getting the house viewer ready also gave me the opportunity to spruce up, yet simply the rooms in my house.
I finally hung the wood plaques my sister painted for me. (They have been leaning on the counter top for 5 years.)
Here are the kids’ bedrooms, that I don’t even try to pretend will stay neat beyond this photo.
Then there is the random staging decorating like….
two pink towels bought solely to sit on top this dryer.
hanging a scarf and summer tote.
The project I am most proud of and wishing I did like 2 years ago when I originally thought of it, was putting up a chair rail and wainscoting on my breakfast room wall.
Just to capture the moment of my home being the cleanest its been in the past year, here’s the rest of it….
The realtor is not too sure how all the wall colors will be received.
My Raspberry Truffle entry.
This is Sean’s patriotic study.
It may have a sign out front, and a weird blue box thing hanging on the front door, but this is still my home, and I love it, and you all are welcome.
