If you’re staging on budget, but really need to replace that vanity, try this easy DIY. Here’s how I did it.

The idea for this bathroom was for it to be calm, bright, modern and cozy. And when it comes to home staging, cozy is a big word. And how do you make it cozy? You’re right! If you’re remodeling the bathroom before the sale, consider adding some timber. Go against the standard white.


Restoration Hardware style is awesome. Staging however usually comes with a tight budget, that can’t support all price tags. And when there are limits, there’s creativity. Luckily, we have Kijiji and I was able to purchase just restored console table for 70$ with delivery from a kind gentlemen. It had perfect size – it didn’t overpower the room visually. If you have a handyman handy, ask nicely for a simple cut on top, to add the sink and install hardware. And enjoy the view!
