Curb Appeal. It’s ‘For You’, not just ‘For Sale’!

You hear so much about curb appeal in today’s world of home staging, a slower real estate market, and of course, on every social media and home improvement channel going! Don’t get me wrong, curb appeal is an absolute must if you are selling, but what about if you’re not?

This is where I notice the little touches are often overlooked. You know how it is, coming and going on a daily basis and suddenly things disappear?

Enter my Dad’s home.

Dad's House Lanterns - Before

It’s hard to see in this shot, but the house lanterns are brass and badly pitted. Once Dad was on board to let me give them a quick refresh, he had them down before I could take my usual ‘before’ shots. That’s just the way he works!! 🙂

Here are some close-ups in preparation for the quick makeover.

Before - Lanterns

Before - House Lanterns

See what I mean about pitted?

There was also a set of house numbers by the main door needing some TLC, too.

Before - House Numbers

Ignore the GRAPES lettering, there’s nothing sour about this DIY, lol!

Love projects with my Dad – he set everything up so all I had to do was arrive and start painting… since this was my idea, after all! 😉

Here’s a little peek at the project in progress…

After - Lanterns

After - House Numbers

I used two variations of Rust-Oleum flat black spray paint.

Rustoleum Flat Black Spray Paint

I started off with the Universal paint & primer in one. I used the whole can to do all three lanterns and the house numbers, so I think it provided great coverage, and it definitely went on very smooth. I used the Painters Touch for the second coat and a few touch-ups here and there, but this time I only used half a can.

Here’s a look at the ‘afters’ with everything back in place.

Lanterns - After

Sharp, right?

Lanterns, House Numbers - After

Notice the doorbell? When I left, Dad painted that too! Way to go, Dad!!

In this overall shot, it’s hard to see the difference…

Dad's Lanterns - After

But when you get up close and personal there’s no comparison!

So my point is just a reminder that the little things in everyday living matter. Take the time for basic upkeep, and enjoy your home while you’re in it! Trust me, there’ll be lots of other projects if the day ever comes to sell, that you’ll be happy you stayed on top of these! And no, Dad’s not selling!

I have to say, my Dad is a master at staying on top of the little things. There’s never too much out of place, or needing to be done. Yah, that’s him scouting for weeds!!

Do you have any warm weather projects on the go? Any that you’ve scratched off your list of ‘to do’? And how about you, do you agree, it’s better to love your home while you’re in it??

Thanks for stopping by!

A Mini Porch Repair… Curb Appeal Love!

Removing Stain by Power Washing

Not sure if you remember, but back when I shared our DIY BBQ Pad project I mentioned another project that was on our ‘to do’ list. A little porch repair…

We had to wait out the weather (like 3 months worth of waiting!) before we could get started, since staining was involved. Finally, this weekend some good weather lined itself up with our ‘spare’ time, and we were able to get at it.

Here’s a look at the actual repair we needed to make.

Porch Repair Project

The bottom step needed to be replaced, and while we were at it we wanted to restain the porch, too.

Our neighbour caught wind of this project and offered us the use of his power washer. He also gave me a quick lesson on how to use it.

Removing Stain by Power Washing

I only power washed the decking, because the boards for the step were being completely replaced.

And then our neighbour lent us his belt sander to finish the job. We have a little sander, but he was convinced his was the better tool to get the job done!

Removing Stain with a Belt Sander

Have I mentioned that we have pretty awesome neighbours?

Before hubs did the sanding he dealt with removing the boards on the step.

Repairing a Porch

The nails were pretty heavy duty, so this was the toughest part of the whole thing, otherwise I would’ve tried to tackle it myself!

While he was doing this part, I stained the underside and edges of the new boards for the step.

Stained Boards

I wanted them to have a chance to dry before hubs needed to install them.

Here’s a look at the fully sanded deck-top.

Sanded Porch Prepped to Stain

I jumped in and took over the staining at this point. I wanted to give the whole porch a fresh coat of stain before the new boards were nailed down.

Here’s a look at the stain job.

Freshly stained porch

I’m not sure what those streaks are in the photo, because the porch doesn’t actually look streaky to the eye! You can see here that I gave the frame of the step a coat of stain as well.

Once the stain was dry – and trust me, it didn’t take long in the heat – hubs nailed the new boards into place.

Installing stair treads

And then I finished them off with a couple of coats of stain.

Cloverdale Deck Stain

This is the stain we used, which was in the basement when we moved in, and is what our landlord used on all the porches of this home.

Here’s a look back at where we started…

Porch Repair Project

And how the porch looks now.

Cloverdale Stained Porch

A quick repair job, and a new coat of stain gives this porch a refreshed look. Another ‘to do’ scratched off the list!

And did you notice the BBQ is out and in full use? Just thought I’d mention that! 😉

What did you do this weekend? Did you play in the sun, or did you tackle a home project, too? If you’re like me, tackling a home project out in the sun is playing in the sun!

You know, it’s the little things such as a mini project like this that make all the difference to your curb appeal, and the statement your home makes. If you look closely you’ll see this porch is not made with treated lumber, and in fact, doesn’t even have a cement pad to sit on. Heck, it’s not even sitting perfectly level. But with the step repaired, and the fresh coat of stain, those aren’t the things you notice. What you see is a little porch that looks loved and cared for. And that is what makes a home feel welcoming, what curb appeal is all about!

THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!

Rain Chains… More than Just Curb Appeal

The weather is shifting and with that comes the need to pay close attention to your exterior maintenance and curb appeal. Are your gutters clean and running freely, and where is all that water going? Have you considered implementing a rain barrel (like I wrote about here)? And do you know about rain chains?

Rain chains? Pardon?

Rain chains are an ancient Japanese form of a down spout. The chain, sometimes linked with cups, hangs straight down from the corner of the eves and acts like a funnel for rain water . In Japanese they are referred to as “kusari doi” 鎖樋, which literally means “chain gutter.”

Here you see rain chains that are made up of linked cups.

Source

The cups are open on the bottom, which allows the water to flow through freely while being channelled at the same time.

And here you see just a simple double linked chain. Links like this are closest to the original form…

Source

One thing to note, chains tend to splash more than cups, but the downward channelling is still extremely effective. Isn’t a rain chain a beautiful thing? It’s such a great looking alternative to conventional down spouts.

Rain chains are typically made of copper, which allows them to age and patina gracefully.

Like this antique tulip cup rain chain.

Source

A little trivia on the side. Did you know that copper is the worlds most reusable resource, and because of that it also has the highest recycling rate of any other engineering material?

That’s an aside, but on the note of being environmentally conscious, did you know that rain chains tend to encourage water collection? They are often integrated into exterior vignettes where the chain falls down into a decorative container or area.

Like a rain barrel

Source

Or a water garden…

Source

Or a basin immersed in a beautiful garden…

Source

Basins are great because they not only catch water, but can be tipped and tilted to strategically direct the overflow.

Like this basin here.

Source

This is also a great example of a rain chain and basin fusion with a rain garden.

A rain garden is a planted or stone-covered bed that is designed for water to be slowly absorbed into the soil and help mitigate the effects of water run-off.

Source

Here you see another variation of a rain garden.

Source

This close-up shows the surface area of a miniature underground well that has been filled with river rock for drainage.

Source

It also demonstrates another valuable technique, anchoring the rain chain to prevent it from swaying in the wind, which of course also keeps the water channelled where it’s supposed to go!

 Rain chains come in many shapes and lengths. Here are a few of my favourites.

I couldn’t resist starting with this shiny new copper umbrella rain chain!

Source

It won’t stay this shiny for long, but to me that’s not a bad thing.

Because here you have an inverted umbrella that has started to dull down, and I think it looks more natural this way.

Source

Did you notice that the inverted umbrellas actually become rain cups on the chain?

Aren’t they great?

This honey bee rain chain made me think of Young House Love.

Source

Their thing is bees, and they are one of my favorite go-to blogs. Have you read their blog?

And these next ones are just a few random shapes in rain chains that appeal to me…

Like these double linked circles.

Source

These double linked diamonds.

Source

And these double linked tear drops.

Source

There’s definitely no crying in the rain if you own a rain chain!

And just in case you’re not convinced a rain chain is the thing for you or your curb appeal…

Would this rain chain fountain help you change your mind?

Source

I love this feature! And it would be so easy to make.

Do you have a rain chain in lieu of a traditional down spout? If not, would you consider hanging one???

Landscaping Day 2 & 3: The End!

I promised to bring you day 2 of the landscaping saga, but I didn’t bank (literally) on a day 3 as well!

But before I could get down to this day of weeding I went and bought a new pair of gloves. Leather work gloves. No kidding. This little plot is full of thistles, and that’s no fun when all you want to do is grab and tug! Here’s a look at my gloves…

Day 1 – pretty in pink! Day 2 – tough leather, quickly broken in!

So here’s a reminder shot, the ‘Before’ that faced me…

No-one said it was going to be easy!

Here’s the end of Day 1 (3.5 hours of weeding)…

Yup, my body felt it!

Here’s the end of Day 2 (3 hours of weeding)…

I stopped right between these two beauties that began to surface as the weeds disappeared…

Can you see the Rhododendrons amongst the weeds?

     

And I discovered a few more Rhodos on day 3 too!

Here are some healthy herbs that were rescued from beneath the grass…

I think one is a type of oregano and the other is a lemony mint of some kind. If you know, please, please leave me a comment. That way I’ll know what to do with them!

So at the end of Day 2 this is what we hauled away to Bings Creek (the CVRD solid waste management complex)…

It doesn’t look like much in this picture, but remember, we had the same amount in Day 1, and almost as much in Day 3! That’s a lot of yard waste…

So here’s a look at Day 3 (4 hours of weeding), the overhaul weeding part of the project now complete…

Hard to believe it’s the same terrain as in the first photo isn’t it?

And here’s a close-up of all the 4 Rhodos we extrapolated! There’s another shrub in there too, the one right in the middle.

Do you know what that one is? Apparently the deer like it, and we do have deer wandering through the yard.  We’ll see if they discover it now that it’s disentangled from the net of weeds!

So just to recap, at the end of 3 days we went from this…

To this…

10.5 hours of weeding in total! Next will be finding a home for the ornamental grass.

Hhhh… all in a day’s (or three days) work!

Do you know what the herbs are, and/or the name of the shrub between the Rhodos? I’d love to hear from you!

It’s about coming home… If you want a remarkable space that tells your story, contact me to see how we can help!

Landscaping… I’m Not Gonna Lie!

Okay, here’s the thing. Moving is exciting, and great, and all of those positive things. But when you inherit this…

I’m not gonna lie… it helps you stand out on the block, and I don’t mean in a good way!

Luckily we were approached and asked if the yard ornament… oops, I meant ‘stand’, was for sale. And it definitely was! So that was easy come, easy go.

And so today was the day to begin tackling the rest.

Here’s a clue to what I was faced with…

Oh, the poor neighbours 😐

The ornamental grass is ours… waiting to be planted. The question is ‘where’? The sad looking specimen in the brown planter is also ours. Believe it or not, it was a thriving Bleeding Heart. If it survives, it’s actually a beautiful plant! But this terrain is solid rock underneath… we’ll have to finish the weeding to decide what to do 😉

So here’s where I started…

Lovely, isn’t it?

And I removed this stuff under the porch too. Why was it even here? Who knows?!

And those 5 gallon pails were full! One with drywall sealer, and the other with latex paint! Seriously. When I went to move them I was caught off guard. I thought they were just empty pails!

I worked for about 3 1/2 hours, and this is where I left off…

Hubby arrived home, and pitched in for the last hour. I’m so glad he did!

It’s supposed to rain tomorrow, but I really want to keep going.

From this shot, you can see that I really have to stay with the program!

Oh, and can you tell where the weeds were also pulled from the gravel area? You might have to scroll back to the first photo to see the proof!

Did I mention our poor neighbours? The work done today didn’t go unnoticed! We met both sets that border this lovely display. And they were clearly relieved to see something happening to the jungle they unwillingly share!

I still have a bunch more to do, but at least there’s been a start. Guess what hubby and I will be doing this weekend, weather-permitting… and yes, my fingers are crossed for the permitting part!

What would you do if your terrain was solid rock underneath… other than bringing in a few loads of top soil?

Staged Home: Sale Makes the Vancouver Sun!

A property I staged in North Vancouver has made the Vancouver Sun!

This is the actual page from the paper… the on-line version doesn’t include the photographs, so I have red-circled the Berkley property. To read the article, click here.

Source: Vancouver Sun Section H2, June 4, 2011

The gist of the article is really about how the sellers did ‘everything right’ when adding appeal and value to their investment. The write-up doesn’t go into the staging aspect of the sale, but has a breakdown of the property’s appraised value, the listing price, and its selling price… over asking! Definitely worth the read. So I’m expanding on what the sellers did right in terms of actually preparing their property for sale beyond the renos and upgrades the article references.

Based on the initial staging consultation and my clients’ subsequent follow-through, there is no doubt they upped the ante for their property. And their follow-through definitely made my job to stage a lot easier. As they say, it’s all in the details, and my clients ‘got’ that completely.

Here is a close-up of the entrance you see in the photo red-circled above.

SZInteriors Photo

And here is a list of what was done to the main entrance to maximize its curb appeal:

  • Soffits, trim and walls – repainted
  • Gutters cleaned
  • Bench – scrubbed down
  • Hose reel & hose – removed (was mounted to end wall behind bench)
  • Exposed Aggregate – powerwashed
  • Planters – repainted and potted up with new plants
  • Doorbell – painted black (brass was pitted from weather exposure, and beyond shining up)
  • Light fixture – new (replaced dated and weathered brass fixture with one to match rest of exterior fixtures)
  • Door mat – new (replaced undersized, well-worn mat with a quality mat made of natural fibres)
  • Windows – washed
  • Brown railing above entry – repainted
  • Stucco wall behind railing – repainted (bottom of wall was stained from weather)

Remember, we’re only at the main entrance! But this area is critical to creating a lasting first impression.

I won’t go into all the intricate details of the staging, but this is a great example of what it takes to go from listed to this:

SZInteriors Photo

Did I mention the garage doors were repainted? And that all the windows were professionally cleaned? Oh, the fascia was touched up too! But one of the best business decisions my clients’ made was to replace the roof. It was showing some wear, however they could have opted to leave it alone since it wasn’t leaking. A professional inspection determined the roof was reaching the end of it’s lifespan, and with that my clients wasted no time in having this potential negotiating item taken off the table. A new roof after all is a selling feature!

Are you curious about what else was done to prepare this property for sale? We haven’t even gotten to the back yard, or the deck, or the garden shed, or the fence… oh, and then there’s the inside too! Have you read the article yet? Remember, these sellers did everything right!

It’s about selling your property. From coaching you through the pre-listing process to staging your property, when we’re finished you’ll be ready to list… Make the biggest impact by contacting me first. Creating a welcome home feeling is our goal; showcasing your investment is what we do!

Volunteering With Colour!

My Dad is active in the local golf club, and recently helped oversee some maintenance and upgrades to the clubhouse. Like a new roof, re-routing some electrical, replacing the main door and mesh over the windows, ordering replacement signs… AND new colours were selected for the exterior. This is where I was asked to come in.

Green was the colour they wanted to start with – makes sense to me, after all this is the clubhouse at a golf course we’re repainting!

This is the clubhouse before any of the work began; the main entrance is actually around the other side.

Did I mention the course is a Par 3, and in the small seaside community of Ladysmith? Doesn’t the round shape of the building have an element of ‘fun’ about it? I think it’s charming, perfect for this setting, but… yes, in need of a little TLC and repainting.

So I met with members, and the Benjamin Moore colours we started with were:

Main Colour:  Silken Pine 2144-50

Trim Colour:  Georgian Green HC-115

Keep in mind that the colours on the screen aren’t true, but still… a definite ‘no’ for this combination. As I said, this was just a place to start based on their random colour choices. From here we talked about how much green would be too much green, what kind of green would create the feeling and image wanted for the building, and how the colours would work with the surroundings.

We decided to try this combination:

Main Colour:  Silken Pine 2144-50

Trim Colour:  Southfield Green HC-129

This combination was too close to the original colours, and we decided the Silken Pine just wasn’t doing it – it’s pretty, especially in the sunlight, but not the vision they had in mind. Something brighter, more green, and more cheerful was the desired direction. So Silken Pine got tossed out.

Then we tried:

Main Colour:  Hollingsworth Green HC-114

Trim Colour:  Southfield Green HC-129

This combination was a hit, but I suggested trying a darker trim colour, just to make sure something with more contrast was presented as an option.

And so we looked at this combination:

Main Colour:  Hollingsworth Green HC-114

Trim Colour:  Jack Pine CC-660

Jack Pine was really, really nice with Hollingsworth Green, but ultimately they thought was it was too dark and serious for the cheerful, inviting feeling wanted for the clubhouse. In the end the decision was to go with Hollingsworth Green and Southfield Green. In context, this worked with the surroundings as there are also a few homes in colour similar to Hollingsworth Green.

Here are a few ‘in progress’ photos…

Did you notice that the roof has already been replaced in this photo?

The Hollingsworth Green looks minty here, but it’s not really; it actually has a warm undertone to it.

Here we still haven’t touched the trim or the shallow fascia…

But it has been painted here. The skirting was taken off site and painted in my Dad’s garage by a small work bee of club members.

Capturing the moment… did I mention that painting isn’t my forté? I’m seriously determined to become more patient with it, and am so glad there was a bunch of us doing the painting!

Here is the finished product! I haven’t shown the other side where the main entrance is because new signs are on their way… the old signs have been put up temporarily and they kind of take away from the fresh paint!

So what do you think? Does the clubhouse look a little more loved? Do the new colours feel cheerful, fresh and inviting to you?

Thanks for stopping by!

Turning Rain Barrels Into Curb Appeal!

I’ve read so many posts, tweets, and Facebook comments on our extended ‘wet’ season, and have certainly contributed to them myself, that I thought it was time for a positive twist on our rain situation.

Rain barrels. Eco friendly, practical, technology old as the hills… They come in many shapes and sizes, in a variety of materials, and can be a huge benefit during the hot, dry summer months.  You can even choose to make them a decorative accent to your exterior styling too!

Like this rustic half barrel.

Source

I love how it blends in and adds a touch of charm to this spot. Isn’t it awesome?

Or this old whiskey keg.

Source

I like the way the colour of the strapping around the barrel blends with the bricks. I would consider painting the downpipe so it blended in as well.

And if you want to be extra creative, keep the platform in mind that you set the rain barrel on.

Source

Nice work with the bricks. Lifting the barrel up off the ground like this makes filling a watering can easier too.

Or you can tuck a barrel right into the corner where it’s out of the way.

Source

And where it’s hardly noticeable.

If your spot is out in the open, you can embrace the fact and integrate your barrel in a bright and cheerful way.

Source

I really like how this barrel sits up making no excuses for why it’s there, and proudly displays the flowers on top.

This terracotta inspired barrel is actually a Cascata rain barrel.

Source

Believe it or not, this barrel is made of molded plastic that is able to withstand extreme temperatures and will not chip, crack, or fade. Who would’ve known?

If you want to be really creative, maybe a painted barrel is the look for you.

Source

Can you see the possibilities? The sky is the limit if you choose to head down this artistic path!

And if you have the space, these super-size rain barrels would be a very practical option to help carry you through a long, hot spell.

SZInteriors Photo

I would definitely do something to camouflage their industrial ‘not-so-chic’ looks though. Like maybe attaching a lattice screen around them, or painting them in some way to make them look nicer. There’s no reason to stop half way!

Did you know that  residential irrigation can account for up to 40% of domestic water consumption? That’s just one reason why rain harvesting is so important, and with the downpours we’ve had, now is a great time to get started!

Illustration: Annie Bissett

Installing your own rain barrel takes little more than a large container placed below your downspout, a childproof screen to keep out bugs and debris, a spigot to access the water, and an overflow valve. To keep mosquitoes away, try a “mosquito donut,” which bans the bugs but won’t harm plants or pets.   Source

So when you look outside and see this…

Source

Just turn the tables into this!

Source

How’s the rain so far?

Source

Much prettier now, don’t you think?

With the rain we’ve been getting now, there’s no reason for your curb appeal to suffer later! Do you already have a rain barrel? Would you consider having one?

It’s about coming home… inside and out. If you want a remarkable space that tells your story, contact me to see how we can help!

Curb Appeal: To Clean or Not To Clean Your Siding

I was going to leave curb appeal alone for a while, but with all this incessant rain we’ve been getting, I thought maybe now would be a good time to talk siding, vinyl siding.

With the rain comes dirt, grime, and eventually an algae build-up if routine cleaning is let go. This is what you will encounter after a wet season (or two) like the one we’re currently experiencing…

Do you see the build-up of dirt the higher up the wall you go? The best way to tackle this grime is with a cloth or soft bristled brush and warm water. See here for full details on how to clean, and what to clean with. Pay special attention to the pressure washing information. Sure, it’s easy to pressure wash compared to scrubbing the siding yourself, but if you’re not careful you can do more damage than good, so these tips and suggestions are definitely worth heeding.

If you decide to opt out of routine cleaning, here is what the build-up will eventually look like…

Can you see the green coating of algae? The seasonal maintenance has been let go, and now the cleaning has become an overwhelming task.

The build-up on this siding is not only from the wet weather, but it has been left through the heat of the summer too, so now the dirt, grime, and algae have been baked on by the sun.

This siding, worst case scenario, is at risk of being permanently stained, and at best, will take a lot of hard work to scrub clean. And… with routine seasonal cleaning, these two factors could have been avoided.

Another reason for routine maintenance is to catch any repair items that come along.

Like this.

Do you see the hole in the siding? This hole is allowing water to get in behind the siding, which could potentially lead to decay. Even a small hole like this is worth the cost to repair.

Curb appeal speaks volumes to a potential buyer. And if you’re not selling, it’s still ultimately a reflection on you. Take the time to care for your investment, and your investment will continue to care for you!

What kind of siding does your home have? How often do you wash it down? Any tips or suggestions to share with others?

Does Your Roof Have You Covered?

There’s nothing that tops off your home better than a fantastic roof! It’s the feature that rises up first, and is seen last, long after all the others have faded in the distance. Your roof is one of the biggest investments for your home.

So… does your roof have you covered?

If it looks like this:

Or this:

Or this:

Or this:

Or this:

Chances are it won’t have you covered for long.

If your roof looks like any of these photos, it’s time for some maintenance and repairs. And now is a great time to have a professional inspect your roof for how much life it has left, and also to give you an estimate on what a new roof  will cost.

Whether you’re staying or selling, the condition of your roof should always be a priority. It adds to the curb appeal starting at the top!
