Make Your House a Home

You put an offer down on a home. 

You hear that your offer has been accepted. 

Now, if you haven’t already, you can start thinking about what pen you will use at the closing, what check design for your down payment, and, there is always, making room on your key chain for your new house key! 

Wait a minute; no one sits around thinking about these things.

No. You are trying to imagine yourself living in your new house. Where is the perfect spot to display your photos? What color should the guest bathroom be painted? All you know is that you want it to feel like your home. After all, why shouldn’t it? It will be yours! EEK! How exciting!?

However, they can be more than a light source in your dark dining room or more than a way to keep an eye on your kids in the backyard. They have a beauty to them, all their own.

You can find some particularly beautiful windows at antique stores or flea markets. If you come across one with lots of character, try placing it in a prominent location, such as an entry table or fireplace mantle. This can create something visually appealing as well as a conversation piece!
