Great job!  People are so afraid of color that sometimes I wonder that there is even enough builder beige paint to go around!

Hi Pippa...The paint sure did wonders and so did all of the other changes that were made to these rooms.  It turned out lovely.

Pippa, Paint can really make a dramatic difference.  Besides the paint, the bedroom window upgrade & changing out the bed helped change the look of that room too.

Very nice. I hate to paint though! Even though it really does make a huge difference. -Ingrid

Someone here once said "paint is liquid equity" and I don't remember who it was.  It is so true.  Paint can increase perceived value in a dramatic way!

Pippa, I think that choosing great colors is a real talent, and one that I lack.  Great after photos.

Amazing changes.  Not everyone can pick the right colors.  Sure makes a difference.

Cherise, your right .. most buyers want to just walk in and get a perfect house!

It is amazing what paint does to a room, these are beautiful room transformations. That is definitely an art, I am not gifted with that talent.

Hi Pippa...Liquid Equity..Neat handle, I'm going to use that too.

 I see you get your sellers to stag too, painting is such a huge Positive thing to improve 'Liquid Equity" value and curb appeal.
