6 HLF - Publication, Tuesday, April 28, 2009 Makeover magic » ADVERTISING FEATURE Spending a few dollars on a makeover will help your house to stand out when you decide to sell, Budget Home Makeover owner Stevie Rose says. ''The key is to . . . present your home at its best to attract interested buyers,'' Ms Rose said. ''The two key essentials are investing in a pre-sale makeover and engaging a good real estate agent.'' Ms Rose said she was often approached by homeowners who wanted to know what they could do to prepare their house for sale. Here are some of her makeover tips: Remove the emotional attachment you have to the property and try to see the house for the first time. This can highlight what needs to be done. Every home has its own character and features -- highlight them. If there are none, create them. Make sure your house is welcoming. When you walk to the house, is it light and open? Do you feel like you want to enter the property? If not, change is needed. Don't copy the neighbour's design even if you think it's fantastic. Make sure your property stands out. Present your property honestly. For example, don't spend money painting the house simply to hide defects. Details: Budget Home Makeover 0412 813 836. HOMELIVING A hard question It is the bane of every home decorator's creativity -- what to do with the left-over paint when the job is over? Down the drain is out of the question, while throwing it in the garden is equally inappropriate. An innovative new product from Dulux, Envirosolutions Waste Paint Hardener is about to change the status quo, creating an easy, fast and responsible means of disposing of left-over water- based paint. Available in 25g sachets, Dulux Waste Paint Hardener is simply poured into any remaining water-based paint or water-based timber finish, stirred, and left for just two hours to solidify. The resultant hardened paint is effortlessly disposed of--justwrapitupinsome newspaper and throw it out with other household waste. The hardener is appropriate for water-based paints and water-based timber coatings, with one 25g sachet able to solidify 500ml of paint. Available at Bunnings and hardware stores. RRP for one 25g sachet is just $1.95. Details: Dulux 132 525 or www.dulux.com.au ..................................................
