As you may know, we are knee deep in getting this house ready to be put on the market. It is tough in the world of real estate now, I am sure you all are extremely well aware of that fact, so, we need to do everything possible on our end to make this house as show ready and as - you know you want to live here! - as we can..
First things first - remove trash pile from side of driveway... this is in the back of our house. There is an alleyway to get to our driveway and this is where this is located. I remember when I first moved to Texas and seeing how a lot neighborhoods were set up this way. The driveways are in the back of the house? I thought that was weeeeiirrd. But, now, I actually think it is pretty pleasing to the eye. (Did I just say "pleasing to the eye?) weeeeiird.
All of that junk was from a TON of work that my husband did to our backyard. The computer-looking thing has to be specially recycled because it has batteries in it, and can't be dumped at the regular landfill.
A little bit of dress-up fun!
And then back to it -
I wish I took a picture of the before, but think picture frames, some books, and some family knick knacks. Now, that had to go - because it was too "personalized", I found an article in a magazine about doing white shelves with white colored vases and bowls. I bought all of these at GoodWill - all of them - the entire lot - for 14 dollars!! Woot! Woot!!
