Condo sales and rentals all start online and pictures will either attract or turn away prospective buyers or guests.
Want an easy way to make your condo more photogenic? Paint. Whether it's walls or furniture, fresh paint brightens up space and makes it look cleaner. And that will make it sell or rent faster!
For example, the black cabinet cost $400 new and it fits into the hallway perfectly because it's narrow. It looked alright as it was, but it's color wasn't ideal.
So we had three choices: 1. Get a new one which means spending more money...and having to dispose of a great piece of furniture. 2. Leave it as is. 3. Or refinish it.We decided to spend $100 and a couple hours refinishing the old cabinet with paint. Chalk paint is ideal for refinishing furniture. No priming or sanding required but it is recommended to wipe it down with glass cleaner and a cloth. Lastly, and it dries fast.
Six Easy Steps:
1) Pick out chalk paint color(s)
2) Pick out new hardware
3) Remove drawers
5) Install new hardware
6) Put drawers back into place
As you can see, the cabinet coordinates with the color scheme now and looks more attractive. It brightens the picture and is more appealingThis is an easy, inexpensive project that doesn't take much time to do. And the payoff is huge. It eliminates furniture hunting. We didn't have to spend another $300-400 for a replacement. Lastly, it's photogenic and makes the hallway pop both online and in person.
That means more money for us! Give it a try and get these benefits too–especially the money part.
