Despite feeling the urge to do something big, we won't be selling our house anytime soon. We love it here and we still have so much more we'd like to do with this little house before dreaming bigger. I mean, we did just add an entire room to the place last summer. We want to enjoy that for a while... not to mention finish it up. There's still trim work to be done and drapes to be made.
However, when we do decide to sell our house, there are two blog posts I will definitely be referencing. This one over at Petit Elefant about how to stage your house and this one from Young House Love with tips on photographing your house. Believe me, I won't rely on a Realtor to snap photos in one swooping visit. Instead, I will do it with my new fancy camera until I get perfect shots. I've already been practicing.
In the meantime, we have lots of little projects to keep us occupied- like this one just completed in our kitchen.
That's right, I hung a chandelier in my kitchen and it looks stunning. I have a thing for chandeliers and this one takes the total chandelier count in my little 2 bedroom, 1 bath house up to three. Of course this chandelier will be one of the things listed as "does not convey" when one day we do sell the house. I can't imagine parting with it.
(I will eventually take a better photo- one that shows the kitchen in full. However, today was not the day as our sink has backed up beyond even snaking thus there are dishes EVERYWHERE. Once that's all cleaned up, I'll snap more pics.)
