Home Staging -- Basement Catch-all Space turned Guest Room







Any extra features that make your house special needs to be highlighted.
How?
By making it a focal point, a plus.
Its access should be unhindered, its condition pristine.
It needs to look brand-new and fresh.
Perfect.

For example, this basement room had become a space to store stuff 
and it needed to be cleared out and presented as a wonderful, usable, bonus room/guest room.

After my walk-through and consultation with the client,
which includes detailed instructions including repair, painting, updating etc.,
she and her husband turned this gloriously huge room into a selling feature.

I have seen sane, check-list wielding buyers drop all their strict criteria 
and buy a home that wasn't even in their scope.
Why?
Because they have an immediate and unexpected emotional attachment to a home's natural assets, its charm.
Because its rooms are unlike any of the others in the other houses on the market.

Think of the reasons that you bought your home.
Are there particulars spots that your family, you, or your visitors tend to gravitate toward?
These are the spaces that need to glow.

27 Ways to Use a Cake Stand, Plate, or Pedestal {for something other than cake}



I've been preparing our home for yet another wedding celebration in a few weeks.
This time it's a reception on our veranda and front lawn.

See the wedding we had in the fall HERE.

I used to make cakes (and cater), but it's been a long time... however, 
the bride (whom I've know since she was six years old!!) asked me to make her cakes.
(There will be one triple-tiered one and 3 other triple-layered cakes.)

The cakes will be displayed on my vintage cake plates and stands.
While I was baking, I thought about all the other cool way that these lovelies could be utilized.
And I searched and found some!
Here they are:
