Spring Flowers

I was staging a house early Saturday morning, so early in fact I went to a yard sale after I was done! The homeowner is ready to up and move as soon as she finds a buyer, this being so, she has gotten rid of most furniture and packed all her personal belongings away and put them in storage. While that sounds like a stager's dream, the Realtor I'm working for and myself are having to come up with the stuff to make the house look lived in!

The dining room was void of everything except a table, chairs, and sideboard. It needed some color to draw your attention away from the blah beige walls. Since we're working with a $0.00, yes a ZERO dollar budget for this job we pulled a rug from the garage to put in the dining room to ground the space, and pulled accessories and other rugs from mine and Wanda's house, along with items from other homes we had staged that were pending sale.

I saw the homeowner had a blooming tulip tree in the yard, so I took some cuttings and starting making an arrangement. I went around the yard and pulled some boxwood and other flowers--I don't know the names of all the varieties I used.

I've had the crystal rose bowl rolling around the back seat of my car for about six months (I had it wrapped in a towel so I wouldn't chip it).

I was amazed at the beautiful flower that were blooming this early!

I can't wait for my hydrangeas and roses to start to bloom. If I can muster the energy and the cash (the refund amount on my Lowe's gift card from the Tax Refund plus 10% promotion. . .) I am going to plant some peonies and holly hocks next week!

This is the house I staged. I will post before and after photos of this home later this week! For more information about this home or if you'd like a showing, please contact Wanda Bond at http://www.wandabond.com/! This home is located in Chesterfield, Va. If you'd like your home staged and live in the Greater Richmond or Tri-Cities areas of Central Virginia, please contact me via email (link in sidebar).
