Ikea Hack Extraordinaire

The BEFORE.  This bedroom is blah. The ceiling light fixture, the feature – or should I say non existent feature wall, the tired side tables and lights.  Blase’ at best.

TaDa! Here’s the Kitchen Before and After (FINALLY)

The BEFORE – Photos from the staged townhouse, our first and only visit before we put in an offer.  If you haven’t heard or wouldn’t have heard, houses are flying off the market here in British Columbia, Canada.  The phrase you snooze you lose is super applicable here.  No inspection.  Just BUY IT HUURRRY BEFORE… Continue reading TaDa!
