Putting aside personal tastes to make your home appeal to any buyer is easy with a coat of fresh, neutral paint. Take a tour of your home with a realtor to get an unbiased look into where your home needs updating. Some quick dry wall putty and new paint patches up most dings on walls, and looks like new after a few minutes.

Install Moulding

Closet organization can seem daunting in a small, enclosed space. If your closet feels crowded and overflowing with clothes and accessories, one helpful solution is to arrange your shoes onto an interior wall. By taking your shoes off of the floor, you not only de-clutter your space, but also gain increased visibility and accessibility of your footwear options.

Check out this DIY tutorial on how to create a custom shoe rack using crown moulding:
