That's where we're at right now.
We're trying to get our house ready to put on the market by summertime, which involves painting the master bedroom, the master bath and the office/bonus room, spreading 350 bags of hardwood mulch, fixing any little things that need fixing, staging important rooms and giving the house a thorough cleaning.
If it would ever stop raining when Mr. DIY is here, we could get the mulch spread. I was able to help a little bit by making the mulch look pretty, but this week I came down with a really bad cold and have been in bed since Wednesday.
A few weeks ago, we/Mr. DIY painted the office, but we still need to put a few final touches on the room.
Meanwhile, I've been looking for a few furniture items and accessories to dress up the house and thought I'd share a recent find.
If you recall, we've had this traditional English rolled arm chair in our bedroom for several years now. I thought I'd have the chair reupholstered since it's in good shape and really comfy, but the cost for just the labor would be more than $300. The fabric would probably be another $100+.
I knew I could find a brand new chair for around $300 and because I don't have the energy to shop around, I started my search online. I really lucked out and found a little discount place near me on Craigslist and found this little beauty. I love the nail head trim on the sides and front.
I have a modern little side table that comes in handy when I'm reading.
The shop I bought it from sells new items that are closeouts from some big name companies. I also saw this chair on Wayfair.com, but I bought it for more than $100 less.
Mr. DIY picked the chair up for me and it seems perfect. for the corner of our bedroom.
We'll be selling our old chair (and a few other things) on Craigslist soon.
Hope you're having a good day!
