Quick And Easy Home Staging Tip For Your Newly Renovated Foreclosed Property

So you bought a foreclosed property, renovated it, and started with marketing. Now a potential buyer (or tenant) calls up and wants to see your newly renovated property. But it’s bare, and actually boring. Here’s a quick but elegant home staging tip that costs very little, but can help make your property stand out.

Home Staging Tip: Turn PVC pipes into flower vases
Got a piece of PVC pipe lying around? You can turn it into a stunning flower vase using no more than a saw, some spray paint, and your choice of flowers.


  • A long piece of PVC pipe at 12 inches long
  • A hand saw
  • A miter box (optional)
  • Sandpaper
  • Spray paint
  • Other decorations (optional)


  1. With the hand saw, cut the PVC pipe. Cut them into segments at least 6 inches long. (You can use a miter box to help you make a straight, clean cut)
  2. Smoothen the segments. Use sandpaper to smoothen the rough edges.
  3. Clean the segments. Wash or brush any grit off of the surface, then wipe it down and dry with a clean cloth, or simply air-dry. Make sure that the surface is smooth and clean for the paint.
  4. Prepare your work area. Choose a dry and well-ventilated space. Cover your work area with old newspapers, cardboard, or a clean sheet of plastic, or taurpalin.
  5. Ready your spray paint. You can use different colors if you so choose. You can also opt for an elegant look with metallic silver or gold (see picture). Shake the can of paint well before using, then spray over the pipes. Make sure to cover the entire surface area. Leave dry for 20 minutes, then spray a second coating if needed. Let dry overnight.
  6. Optional – prepare your choice of additional decorations, like beads and buttons that you can stick on the pipe using glue. You can also opt for decals or stencils. Go crazy with it — use your imagination.
  7. Add flowers – Finally, select an armload of flowers for your new set of DIY vases. Arrange them as you please into each tube. Use this as the centerpiece for countertops in your kitchen or keep them as eye-catching displays in your dinning area or living room. They’re versatile decorations either as a set or on their own.

Bonus tips

The pipes-turned-vases can also function as pencil and pen-holders. You can even tell your would-be buyer/tenant that these are all included with the property.

  3. For those wondering what a miter box is, it’s a tool where you can put the thing you want to cut with a saw, and it has grooves to help guide your saw and make straight cuts.

    For pipes, I suggest using masking tape as a guide for cutting, just put the masking tape around the pipe making sure you put it on evenly (the ends meet), and you use this as a guide while sawing.
