If you’ve ever had a scuff mark on a colored countertop, you know that it sadly becomes the room’s focal point. But we found the right supplies to save you any embarrassment.
- Crayons, 99 cents
- Spatula knife, 99 cents
- A microwave-safe bowl, 99 cents (If you have one you’re willing to sacrifice to melt crayons, you just saved another 99 cents.)
What you do
- Pick the Crayon whose color comes closest to matching your countertop. Peel off the paper and place it in the bowl.
- Pop the crayon and bowl in the microwave.
- Pour the hot, melted crayon onto the scuff mark and work it into the indentation with the spatula knife.
- Scrape off the excess with the spatula knife.
The Crayon mixture will harden and dry quickly, erasing your countertop flaw.
One episode was titled “Investor Quick Flip” which was a house in the Brookside area of Tulsa. The photos show our staging magic for this house on St. Louis Avenue. As you can see, we liked the family room shot so much we made it our “hero” shot on our Facebook page and our new business cards.
The second episode of the HGTV series, Flipping the Heartland was “Team Flip” featuring a house in the Woodland Hills area of Tulsa. Grace and I can be seen on camera doing some initial staging work. In addition, two Realtor friends, Liz Fugate and Barbara Senn, are shown during the open house. We hope that you can see this episode when it airs again as we are very proud of our staging.”

“I met with the owners of a house in Dallas, TX who had a semi-vacant home on the market since December 2014. The home was listed un staged and not professionally photographed. It lingered for months and the sellers, who lived out of the area had enough. They researched staging companies locally in Dallas after having asked their agent to find one for them (2 months prior to my meeting with them) and he said that he “couldn’t find one” so they found one themselves, me.” [Read more…]
