Plant Ledge. Ugh.
So this falls under “Things I’m not really excited to do when trying to sell my home.” To me, staging a home means no longer making it your own. Trying to erase what is quirky and unique about your style and to make it sell-able. This means showcasing things in your house you have overlooked or neglected, and trying to cheer it up. When we bought this house, we knew that we would not be living in it for more than a few years. I’m surprised we have stayed at this location for almost 6 years now! That is a long time for us. While house hunting, we looked for things that were not faddish, and a layout that fit the typical buyer. It is not my style, but it will do. And it has done a great job for the past 6 years. It put 1 kid through college, one through High School and enlisting into the military. And for our youngest, it has been her only school system she’s known.
There is one area though, I’ve never been able to figure out. The dreaded plant ledge. It’s high in the air and blocked by a media center. It’s so long, that decorating it would cost a fortune. It’s so awkward!
So what to do now? How do I sex this empty space up, so it looks enviable. I don’t know, but I’ve tried my hand at decorating it with books, and have added a few ideas below also. Tell me what you think:
My Ledge with Books:
Plants and Knick-knacks:
Here are some very cute Christmas decorations tucked in the shelf. BTW, there are a ton of cute decorations on this site. I’m coming back!
I think I will end up placing my antique suitcases and some plants up here to add some height to the scene. What are your suggestions? You can link in, or I will even add to the post with your suggestions!
