A Room Transformation- Part II

Here are the photos of the living room after the new furniture additions and some clean up. I have to take off some of the books on the coffee table, but other than that, this is what my potential buyers will see.



Then, to my horror on Saturday, my realtor reminded me with these pictures, that my bedroom looked like this:
I confess that I've always neglected our own room, spending a lot more time and creativity on the kids' rooms (I'll have to post photos of those next.) So I did a little more work and rearranging, and now it looks like this:

It is a small room, so tough to get a decent angle, but we took out the two dark mahogany pieces in favor of tables with open legs. The room looks a lot more spacious. We considered bringing some art in to cover our bare textured walls but didn't want to start making holes in 90 year old plaster, so instead we turned the bed so that the window is the focal point instead of the wall. Here are close-ups of the tables:

Official listing goes out on Wednesday---wish me luck!

Olga, I absolutely love your room transformations! Your bedroom was particularly inspirational because it showed how a few simple changes can make such a big impact.

Good luck with your house sale and I wish you happiness as you look to what the future brings for your family and new home.

That round side table is amazing. Great staging job. If I could buy your house I would :-). Definitely appealing.

I know exactly what you're going through. Our house is on the market too, and we had to do a lot of work to get it ready. In fact, today our Realtor called and said we had two hours till a showing. We cleaned the entire house like maniacs. And then they rescheduled the showing. Oh well. Now the house is really clean!

Best of luck selling your place.
