Today's mail and a peek into my bedroom
Guess what came in the mail today? Look at that great note. So professional, eh? (If you can't read it, it says "store credit - per store Mgr. Matt Vernig.")
And for some weird reason they are giving me $107, rather than $100. Perhaps I was $7 bitchier with my last letter...?
This book came today too. I love the title!
Barbara Corcoran, for those of you who don't know, is a real estate guru and master-stager. I believe she's also a correspondent for the Today Show, though I'm not certain since I don't watch TV. (But I have looked at some of her clips on YouTube.)
Now, on to the bedroom. I'm disappointed that I can't find any good before pictures, but I did scare up a couple of bad ones, just to give you a rough idea of what was going on in this room when I started working on the house nearly 8 months ago...
View from the dining room into the bedroom. See how they had some classy curtains hanging in there?
View from the bedroom, looking back out into the dining room. Those double doors were a MESS.
They're all cleaned up!
This is my favorite-est (Ikea) sconce on the planet.
This is the favorite-est (Ikea) sconce that I busted when I decided to try and let it hang by its wires as I painted around it.
Note: don't do that.
That flower is totally from my garden. :-)
I still need some photography help. I guess I'd better hire a pro for the listing.
I love bright colors!!!!!!!
(I hope my prospective buyers do too...)
