What to do With a Dresser?

Home Stager with The Staging Fashionista

Ok so I was staging this occupied home in Herndon, VA and one of the rooms just had this dresser in it.   So what to do with a dresser?  Stage it!  See how we dressed up this dresser and made it special. 

Ohhhh and on the other side of the room we added a small scene to draw the buyer in!

Thank you everyone - the idea was to create some interest and a connection.  This is definitely a family oriented neighborhood I did my research as I always do since I have to know who my buyer will be before I stage.  I'm hoping this will sell quickly.  It is an occupied so I hope the owners will be able to maintain what was done!  Thanx again for all your nice compliments.  I appreciate it.

Hi Mannie, great use of what was on hand. That's the value that  a professional stager brings to the job.

Hi Teri - love those bags they are so fun!  The bunny belonged to the homeowner so had to use it!

Hi Michelle - yes a stager's creativity really helps when you don't have much to work with!
