A Blank Canvas
As we had mentioned in our big announcement, Clarissa Gibson of The Gibson Co. is staging our house in order for us to bring out as much appeal and value as possible for potential buyers. Upon her initial walk through, we all agreed that while our current color scheme is fine, it could potentially be a barrier in the purchase process, that we wanted to eliminate.
So, before she could really make the changes she wanted to from a decor and staging standpoint, we chose to go ahead and wipe the slate clean and paint our downstairs and upper hallway in a Revere Pewter from Benjamin Moore. Which means we called in our friends at Three Brothers Painting to do the job.
Oscar, the owner, came out the Monday after Clarissa's Friday visit. As always (we had used them 3 years ago) he pulled out his iPad, plugged in our room specifications and he quickly emailed us an estimate. Once we agreed on the price, he said he could have a crew out THAT Wednesday morning and they could probably get it all done in 2 days.
The crew showed up around 9:30. Broke for lunch at 12:30. And by the time we returned from our dinner out at 7:30, the entire project was completed. Say what?!?!
We're off to meet with Premier Surfaces to talk about replacing the countertops in the kitchen. Once those are installed, Three Brothers will be back out to paint our kitchen cabinets. That's when Clarissa will be taking over. There will be furniture replaced. Decor will be hung. Rooms will be given a theme. And we'll be that much closer to being ready to take offers in March...ish.
