Ready 2 Stage Home Staging & Redesign recently had the opportunity to stage a beautiful Meadowcrest Commons Townhome in Athens, Tennessee.  

A local furniture builder and importer Athens Woodcrafters worked with us to furnish this luxurious townhouse in the style that it deserved.  After 9 hours of furniture installation and accessory placement we delivered a product that pleases us, the Realtor, the Developers and hopefully many prospective buyers.

Century 21 Robinson Realty's Paula Scarbrough is the listing agent for all 11 available properties.  For more information you may contact Paula at (423)745-4446 or check the website at for more information.

If you long for small town living with uptown style this may be the place for you!

Sharon--Thanks for your comments.  The "distressed" bedroom suite seems to fit the Craftsman-style of the home.  I really liked it.  Praying for a sale for these developers.  It has been on the market for a while.

Very nice Lori.  It's great that you were able to team up with a furniture importer/builder.  Hope that this one sells quickly so that you can move on to more of the developers units.

Thanks Tonia.  Everyone seems to be pleased with the look.  The only negative that I heard from the developer is that he hoped there would be a rug underneath the dining table.  I agreed that it would look nice, but the cost of a rug that size is WAY out of our budget.  What are your thoughts?

I think a rug would look good, but if it's out of your budget?  Where do you stop?

Cindy--I gave them a super deal on this staging and a big rug would be way more than I could agree to.  I told them that if they wanted to supply one or buy one that I would be glad to install and redo the table...that's really all I can do!  Thanks for your comment.

Lori- Love the way you did the dining room table. I love using fruit too, and I love setting a great table. The colors are great. Thanks for sharing.
