I am so happy to finally share a number of the changes we have been working at Oh Happy Day studio on the previous couple of months. This space was not always a kitchen. It turned out to be a funny room in the rear that got excellent light but wasn’t unpleasant to be in since that’s when we had a job going on where all the cartons and arbitrary supplies would get stuffed. Turn it into a small kitchen space and we eventually made a decision to take the prime real estate. We handled that small room that was miserable head on.
We understood we needed to paint the kitchen a vivid colour and collaborated with Getitgirlstyle.com since they’ve an incredible Love Your Colour Guarantee. In the event, you do not adore the colour you selected you can attempt a new one, on them. It made it way simpler to attempt a bold colour like Poker Green in a little space. The video was made by us below revealing the transformation that I am actually excited about, I am hoping you enjoy it!
Afterward, we installed White and Black flooring to produce the room soda. Rather than a table, we determined we wanted some counter space. It is the perfect space for photo shoots and food prep. The feces that are yellowish are from Target. We installed a straightforward part of plywood with these mounts to supply some open shelving for food and accessories. And I really like the mint green refrigerator that keep our team lunches. I really like it! It is so pleasant to get an incredible space to hang out during rests. Do not forget to check out the makeover stories all on the Valspar Youtube station!
Transferring to 1700 square feet from 500 square feet is a huge leap. There are far more room decorating ideas to furnish. I mean, we’re going to really have a dining room! I declare I already wrote a post in this way, so here are my Craigslist hints and tricks in one location, but I could not locate one in my archives.
Hint #1. The number one thing you can do in order to locate things that are awesome on Craigslist is spend lots of time searching. I know this seems obvious, but I used to question how folks consistently found such amazing bits for economical and my buddy described how she spent 1-2 hours every evening. I go through periods but when I am redecorating per week I’ll spend several evenings e-mailing and hunting.
Hint #2. Everyone has their favourite search terms but depending on what I am looking for I make an effort to get really specific or very broad. For instance if I’m trying to find a farm table (which I ‘m) I’ll seek particularly like: “french farm table” or “classic pine table” after that I search with comprehensive search terms like: “classic table” or “old dining table.” Occasionally I Will get extremely comprehensive and simply enter the word “classic” and spend and hour searching. I have found some truly amazing bits that manner. Another search trick I have would be to use 1st Dibs. It will help to go take a look at the astonishing collection of couches or drawers because I am not a furniture specialist. Do an internet search for that on Craigslist while I find one I like that’s a brand I Have never heard of I.
Hint #3. Get a Display Catch | Normally if I’m hunting for bits I Will open an e-mail window up and after that simply set the various Craigslist links within the body of the e-mail. Once I Have spent some time “adding them to my shopping cart” I return to the e-mail and look at every post to decide if I am going to contact the seller. This really is particularly helpful if sellers set their numbers in the advertisement. I have had a couple events I lost the email address or where the advertising expired and I managed to get hold of the owner subsequent to the advertisement was removed from Craigslist.
Hint #4. Getting the Seller to React | There’s secret. For working with sellers, my epiphany occurred when I was attempting to sell my very own furniture on Craigslist many years back. I understood that I only needed the furniture out of my house when possible. So when I was picking between all of the individuals who e-mailed there was one that said “I am really curious, I ‘ve cash and may pick up the bit tonight.” The key would be to seem incredibly interested and like you’re prepared to take it off their hands ASAP. In case you need to haggle or have more questions do not contain that in the first e-mail. You’re making plans to go see it and as soon as they react to you personally you can inquire should they’ve a pet or whether it smells like smoke or if they’re willing to haggle a little. Personally, I do not haggle unless I get there and it’s something or spots that were not pictured.
Hint #5. My pal Brooke taught me this trick several years back, you can have your favourite searches appear in your feed (such as Google Reader RIP). The single trouble is folks use many search terms which you have to weed through lots of things. I have located the secret will be to get super specified. But should you seek “Vintage Authentic Saarinen Table Marble” afterward when the table of your wishes comes onto Craigslist you will be the first to understand.
