|What are the chances that someone would consider a home staging prop like this to be valuable?|
It wasn’t a string of events that eroded my confidence in people. It wasn’t a major news story. It wasn’t a friend’s betrayal or something Mr. Lucky said.
It was that someone who came to look at our property for sale, someone accompanied by a realtor, someone who has money or credit to buy a property listed at $145,000, stole our remote. Yes, the obsolete, battery-less, cheap, little, generic channel changer. Can you believe it? I couldn’t.
Mr. Lucky noticed it was missing as soon as we walked through the room I’d staged as a TV room. We quickly ascertained that it wasn’t misplaced, but taken.
Yes, yes, I know. Those of you who have read my eBook DIY Home Staging Tips know that I recommend not setting out in a staged home anything small enough to easily fit into someone’s pocket or purse.
All I can say is, I gave good advice. Too bad I didn’t follow it.
But I really wanted that remote sitting handily there right next to the comfy leather sofa. I want it so bad that I am going to find another remote and hot glue it to the contact paper I hot glued to the tabletop.
Even if I have to look under all the couch cushions at home to find one!
