Keep The Focus On Your Painted Furniture

#StagingSaturdaysWithFallon #YourVirtualStorefront

When you are trying to stage a piece of furniture to sell online, the props you use to accent the piece should not be random; they should be intentional and cohesive. You want to simply show the purpose because you’re trying sell a piece of furniture, not the items on it. A pop of color here-and-there is totally okay to add a little dimension, as long as it is cohesive and balanced. In fact, you may not need any props if your piece is vibrant, detailed oriented and/or has multiple colors because you do not want to compete with the art of the piece. Let the beauty of it speak for itself and leave the props out or keep them to a minimum. Another example is when you’re staging modern-style furniture. Those pieces are intended to be clean and clutter free so typically. very few props should be used.

To help simplify things, always focus on the purpose, style and genre of the piece when you’re choosing your props to stage your painted furniture to sell. Don’t overdo it.

There are so many different styles of homes and furniture: Contemporary, Farmhouse, Mid-Century Modern, Boho, Country, Shabby Chic, Transitional….and that’s just a start. How do you decide what to use when staging and styling your furniture to sell? Stay true to the style of furniture you have painted and stick to what is selling in your area. Keep it simple. If you struggle in this area, keep your props neutral and always stay focused on the piece. Don’t over-complicate the process and remember, nature’s elements never go out of style. Fresh flowers, greenery and wood elements are always a great choice no matter what style you are staging!

Today’s staging tip is short and simple. If it is easier for you, follow the rule of staging things in “threes” by only using three props: one in the middle, and then one on each side. You could use three candlesticks, three vases, three pictures going across the wall, etc. Just make sure it is proportionate. See pictures below for examples:

Staging Saturdays: Introduction

#StagingSaturdaysWithFallon

Most of you know that I have written an eBook about staging called, Your Virtual Storefront. The Complete Guide to Staging Painted Furniture. While I am not going to give away every tip and trick that I offer in my eBook, I will still give you some simple advice each week on how to go about staging your furniture. My eBook is more for the artist who is trying to sell their furniture but the great thing about #StagingSaturdaysWithFallon is that I will try and write these tips to help everyone, not just the furniture artist. So, if you’re someone who needs help decorating your furniture and/or space within your home, #StagingSaturdaysWithFallon will help you too!!

Today I am going to start with some basic rules that I follow when I am staging and/or decorating a piece of furniture:

  1. The large areas should be neutral and cohesive.

  2. Smaller areas should have pops of natural color and should compliment the style of furniture.

  3. Add a little texture. This will help grab the light in different ways to give the area a different perspective and dimension.

  4. Varying Heights. Tall vase of flowers, small stack of books…

  5. Keep it clean, crisp and clutter free.

I’m going to keep #StagingSaturdaysWithFallon simple each week so you’re not overwhelmed. By doing this, hopefully it will make it easier for you to learn and apply these tips over time. I suggest making a new Board on your Pinterest page so you can keep them all in one place and refer back to each blog post when you need to!
