Make it your own

Have you ever been house hunting and had the hardest time seeing yourself in a particular home? Sometimes, the current owner's "personal style" is so overbearing that you can't see past it. As a real estate agent, I have run into this time and time again. I recently convinced my parents to look past the "fru-fru" murals painted throughout the downstairs of a home for sale, and focus on the great bones and layout of the house. Below are some photos showing how they transformed the house into their own. Don't let a little mural scare you. Paint can work like a magic eraser.
