We put our house on the market one year ago. At the time, we were completely optimistic that it would sell quickly. So we did all the preparation work we could. We took down all of our pictures and decorations. We painted all of the walls white. We cleaned our carpets and laid new carpet in the master bedroom. We were so proud of ourselves.
Now a year later with no signs of our house selling anytime soon, our pride in our accomplishments has definitely diminished. Eric and I are a little tired of living in such a sterile environment that doesn't feel very homey.
So we've decided that we want to some decorating.
- We don't want to spend a lot or invest in anything big because we already have some things in storage and we want to wait until we are in a new house before we start with any involved decorating styles.
- We also don't want anything that will take to much time to take down or cover over when we move.
- On top of that, we also need things that will look nice enough to show our house to potential buyers.
So that's why I'm opening up to you all. I'd love some of your tips or ideas. And my husband and children will thank you!
