Powder Room gone wrong....

When construction is involved 
there's chances that something can go wrong. 
In this case, 1 feet was lost into this tiny powder room 
the challenge was the pipes being in the concrete heated floor,the pipes coming out and not at the right place 
I had a box custom built to cover the pipes and put the sink cabinet on top of it!
Custom built half a wall to take away the excess space 
  from behind the new toilet  
This wall was suppose to receive the toilet 
After buying a new and smaller toilet and put it side way and be able to circulated between the sink and toilet
I added a new dimension to the shelving 
If you like the twirling wallpaper, you can purchase it here
To make it look more shiny, I add some sticker glitter around the mirror!
The disco ball gives a cool effect at night!!!
Finally everything is possible with a good cabinetmaker, some creativity and patience. The powder room gone wrong was maybe losing 1 feet but the hallway next to it was gaining it!!! 
Happy ending...
Have a lovely day!

Realtors Six Reasons to Have a Stager on Your Team


  • 1.  I can save you time.  
  • At your request I will meet with your client before the property is listed to give a consultation and explain what needs to be done to sell the house quickly. This frees up more of your time for pursuing other leads, marketing, etc. 
  • 2.  I can help increase your revenue. 
  •  Statistics show that staging sells a house in about half the time and for more money than comparable unstaged houses.  This means a lower possibility of a price reduction and less money spent on marketing the property….which means more money in your pocket.
  • 3.  I can relieve you of the stress 
  • of telling your clients their house needs work.  Sometimes this can become awkward, but I am experienced in handling such situations.  Let me do the ‘dirty work’!
  • 4.  I will help you achieve a reputation as a Realtor whose listings always show well. 
  • 5.  I can ensure that your buyer's first impression is a WOW impression. 
  •  There is only one chance to make that all important good first impression.  Make sure your buyers get it.
  • 6I can send you referrals.  
  • From time to time, home owners who are having their home staged will ask me to recommend a good Realtor.  Of course I recommend those that use my services.
  • Staging is just one tool that can be implemented to help sell homes on the market.  If it is priced competitively, marketed effectively and staged beautifully, it will be a winning combination and the house WILL sell!
