Many people hire professionals to stage their home when they are trying to sell their home. For me, I wanted to do it myself. If you have been following Positively Beautiful Life then you know that we just moved and we have our house on the market. I get how someone would want to just hire someone so you don’t have to hassle with it. I wanted to save as much money as I could during this transition and this was one area that I could save the money if I did it myself.
Yes, it can be a lot of work but there is also a self of pride and accomplishment when you do it yourself. You don’t have to be a professional in order to stage your home beautifully. Here are a couple of tips.

It’s the Summer and we are almost in the middle of July when it gets extremely hot here in Texas. We always love to do things as a family so we thought, why not have a family lemonade stand? We created a lemonade stand that would be perfect for family gatherings, but also it can be converted into a hot chocolate stand, or whatever you would like.
We decided we wanted to do bigger projects. We have wanted to fix up our house and remodel here and there. We ended up doing a DIY project for our stairs that is going to our second story. We did not have a big budget but we wanted it to look really nice. We came up with a couple of ideas that saved us money and we wanted to share this project with y’all. All together had roughly 600 dollars in materials.
The month of October not only snuck up on me, but it has been flying by. Mr. PBL and I finally took time to make a DIY project for Halloween and Fall time. I love wood and how timeless it is. I wanted something that would look great on my front porch. I am not the type of person to be decorating with scary witches, skeletons, ghosts, and gory bloody limbs. I do love cute Halloween decor with a rustic touch to it.
We built a farmhouse picnic table several months ago. See post here. We weren’t for sure if we were going to make chairs or what. We finally decided to make two benches to go with it. Now, it’s an actual outdoor picnic table and I love it!
Hey guys, Mr. PBL here! If you have kids then I am sure you can relate to this. Kids break things, not on purpose most of the time, but some of these can be very costly repairs. I remember when I was young my brother and I put multiple holes in the sheetrock of our house. If we would have hired somebody to come fix them, it would have cost my parents a ton of money. Like they say, whatever you put your parents through as a child, expect the same from your own kids. Well a game of hide and seek tag in the house turned into one of these instances. Our son was trying to get away and thought it would be a great idea to jump out the window of our bathroom.
I have been wanting some outdoor furniture for a long time. I finally talked Mr.PBL into helping me build a farmhouse patio table. I wasn’t sure how it would come out, but I have to say that I am proud of how it came out. Mr. PBL did most of the building while I sanded and painted it.
Last week was a rough week for me. I went back to my home town for a funeral and also for my sister’s baby shower. A sudden change of location for the baby shower sent us into panic. I also had very little time to devout to the blog. My wonderful hubby started a project without me. I always love doing the projects together because I enjoy spending time together. I also like to be there when doing the projects because I like things done a certain way. I’ve got to say he did a great job without me and I appreciate him helping me to stay on track. Check out his DIY project below.
