Staging with what you have.

As you know, our house has been listed for 2 1/2 weeks now.  Just thought I would show you a couple things that I changed.  Remember the little blue table that I was using for a coffee table.  I liked it but others thought the house would show better with a different table.  So the blue one became the side table.  This long sturdy bench I found out our local vintage and candy shop.  It was marked down to $29.  At first I thought I could stack some of my benches like Brenda of Cozy Little House did.  I may do that later.  The flowers were from my daughter as a "thinking of you" gift.  (Later the blue vase fell and shattered everywhere, but not til the flowers had seen their better days.)  The candle and the book were gifts.  (It's a book about vintage campers)  The burlap banner was a giveaway gift from a generous blogger.  The three floral and burlap pillows came from a sale on a blogger's etsy shop.  ($15 each.......I love those pillows.)  The other pillows came with  the sofa that I found at another vintage shop.  The picture above the sofa is another gift from my children.  So minus the sofa this whole arrangement cost me $74.  Not bad, right.  If you count the little blue table then it would be $94.....still under $100.  And, I already had all of it.

Hi Debby, I sure hope your house sells soon. Are you using a real Estate agent?

Love those floral pillows too and the flowers are gorgeous, your daughter is very thoughtful. Too bad about the vase.

I hope that you'll be feeling well soon and that summer is bearable to you.
Hugs,
JB

Looks so good! Fun to "shop" at home too, using things you have.
Hope you're feeling well and that the house sells quickly. I'd have a terrible time keeping mine clean and neat for long!

It looks lovely and I think the bench makes a great cocktail table!
