House Tour - Main Floor

We finally had the picture-taking person come by the house. So now we have a key-box on the door, and we'll soon be getting a lawn sign and highlight sheets for selling our house. I'm not very confident about the pictures. For one thing, the house wasn't 100 per cent tidy and sparkling like I wanted it to be. For another, the photographer (who is more of a go-fer than a photographer or realtor, she said) did not do anything to get a good angle of any of the rooms. She basically just stood in the doorway and snapped her shot. That is not going to be flattering, particularly for the living room and the master bedroom. But enough of my complaining. I figured that since I have all these nice pictures of my house that I took to put on my "townhouse for sale" blog, now would be a great time to have a house tour. If you want to see my townhouse for sale blog, send me an email and I will send you the link. I just don't want to put it on here because I try to keep my exact location off of this blog...though it wouldn't be that difficult to figure out if someone really wanted to.
We'll start at the front door and move to the entry The kitchen is cheerful and bright, even with the aged 1970s cabinets with old hardware, and the fake-wood countertop. The living room is my favourite place in the house. I love to sit by the window (especially when it's raining or snowing) reading my favourite books. I hope I can give our new living room the same warm, cozy feel, even though it's open to the kitchen, and the fireplace's location makes it impossible to make it a focal point. Of course, in this house the fireplace can't be a focal point either. And then there's the half-bathroom, which I've already posted about. I am still thrilled with how it turned out...and I still haven't found a soap-dispenser to go with it. (But of course that's ok because now we're moving). I'll show you the upstairs tomorrow.


  1. Wow! If that's not neat and tidy, I don't know what is! I think the photos of your kitchen are the best. It DOES look very bright and cheerful! Can't wait to see the rest.:o)

  2. If you still want to get a soap despenser, go to superstore. THey have some really nice neutral coloured stuff there. There was one that I liked that was a beige colour with a tree branch with no leaves going across it from lower to higher. They are about 10 bux. I wonder if they have the same merchandise there as they do here.

  3. Wow Jo! It looks better than the description to me :)

    You really did a great job!
