Our team got the home fixed up in time for the first open house and even managed to stay a little below budget.
Behold the new and improved kitchen, which also boasts new track lighting instead of the '70s-style light fixture.
After the actual sale paid for the carpet, the team was able to convert this room — previously used for storage — back into a bedroom.
The family room is no longer a dark and dreary space but a bright and sunny one perfect for relaxation.
The living room is repainted and new accessories are added to the space to change it's style.
This spare room was once used for a workshop now it is transformed into the more traditional cozy spare room.
