After just a few days and a lot of elbow grease The Diamants and Designed to Sell team are ready for the open house. Take a look:
Before the living room was bland and seemed to have no real purpose, but now it's a lovely greeting for all who enter. New furniture pieces were borrowed from a family member, and the colorful accessories came from other parts of the house.
The kitchen has a completely updated and custom look. The upper cabinets are gone, creating a much more open area, and new pendant lights, wall color and faux finishing on the lower cabinets make the space brighter. There's also a new banquette table that makes for a great place to dine and entertain.
The master bedroom is no longer stifled by furniture that doesn't fit. It boasts a new bed frame, attractive (and small) nightstands and lamps, new linens, pillows and vanity as well as a fresh coat of paint, elegant chandelier and sturdy carpet.
Though the den lacked purpose before, its primary function now is to turn heads. Fresh wall paint and faux finishing on the fireplace facade add a dash of warmth, and the new wicker chairs and decorative accessories combined with pieces the couple had in storage create a pleasant place to gather.
