Seriously I see this everywhere on forums and websites And then the owners of the blog wonder why they're losing traffic.

No absolutely not. Why? Browse new chairs online, and they're 75 bucks or even higher.
Instead you have two classic, well built chairs that will last you a lifetime.

*jealous* What a steal. For a little over a thousand dollars you have a couch that'll last a lifetime

1. Remove all personal items and clutter: pictures on the fridge, the geese, clock, calendar, <I>everything,</I> including the canisters, coffee maker, toaster oven et al. I'd even remove the paper towel holder.
You want an absolutely clean slate. I would even pare down inside the cabinets: buyers are sure to look inside to see how roomy they are, and you want them to imagine their food in there.
Get rid of the blinds, and this may not be popular: get rid of the Island too. It really makes the kitchen look cramped. Maybe it can be repurposed?

Painting the cabinets would be a huge improvement, but it's a lot of work and expense. Odds are they will redo the kitchen anyway.
Install new counter tops.
Replace the blinds with bright lime green curtains.
Set some orange mums in the windowsill.

And scrub the heck out of the cabinets (inside and out, including the handles and hinges) and shine them up with wood oil. I've used tungsten oil.
And of course scrub the kitchen down in general.
Oh bake cookies or a pie. I can't remember where I read that but it's supposed to set the stage. Will you take after pictures?

“There’s no good stuff at the Goodwill and Salvation Army in NYC”. There are amazing things but most people just don’t feel comfortable shopping amongst crazy homeless people. I couldn’t care less. The best thing about shopping at the Goodwill in NYC is that since its clientele is mainly homeless people, they have no need to buy housing goods. They all flock towards the combat boots section and cargo pants rack
I saw that too Dom_dva. This was in her comments section.I am sad that someone would mock the homeless. . I have friends that are nearly homeless b/c of this economy.

I agree it would fit more in BHG. Not too many people can afford a architect, and I too thought the spirit of this site is more diy
