Chris and I have spent the day working like dogs! We were talking to a realtor (Little Miss Curious went to an open house down the street) and have an appointment to have the house assessed on Tuesday to see approximately how much we can list it for.
To make the living room look bigger we moved the TV into the corner and turned the couch/coffee table et al 90 degrees. I'm amazed at the difference it's made, the room looks 100% bigger! If we'd known it would have this effect we would have done it this way in the first place. We won't be able to have surround sound because Chris wired the speakers to the TVs old position and it's too much work to thread the wires through the walls to the new position so we'll have to suffer with stereo sound but c'est la vie eh?
We've got 3 days to get the house ship shape so it can be assessed. Not much work involved, just some tidying.
