Home Staging 101 " Art Ideas" Cleveland, Tn
Lets face it , where would we be without art & accessories. In Home Staging, having the right pieces to create a cohesive space is essential. A space without accessories & art , is like a cake without icing. Unfortunately it can get pretty pricey.
This gives us an opportunity to get creative. We begin thinking " outside the box". We usually are blown away by the creations we come up with, when we take that step of faith. Thats a BEAUTIFUL thing. In addition we save money..gotta LOVE that...
I"d like to share a couple of Home Staging projects I have done & hopefully inspire you to take that step of faith...We might not be a Van Gough, ,but we CAN do some simple art that works.
I LOVE to shop at the local Goodwill stores. There is a couple of reasons. I know that any purhase I make it's going to help someone locally. In addition I have found some of my most treasured pieces from the Goodwill Store.
This piece cost me $15 . I loved the retro lines. It was surprisingly in good shape. I sanded it down, painted it with a flat black paint. I then taped off 1.5" horizontal stripes in silver over the top & legs.
This piece had 6 drawers, I thought the diamond pattern worked well with it. I measured the center top.sides, & bottom, then taped off my design. I filled it in with the silver paint. Total cost around $30...
United Wholesale is another great place to find some really cool stuff. Most of the merchandise has been damaged in some way, so it is really affordable. I found this piece at United Wholesale. The finish had been scratched, and their was a corner chipped. (For future reference I will have b-4 pics...I know ...I'm bad about that..always an after thought)
It measured approximately 3ft.....brand new without flaws...this art would of cost hundreds in a design house...my cost $ 20. I simply sanded the finish & painted the surface a creamy white. I then taped off a 1" stripe and painted it black. The medallion in the center was in perfect condition... VOILA the ffinished product..total cost about $ 25.... I love Home Staging & I know you do too.
