How To Give Your Room A Face-Lift Inexpensively!
Looking for ways to improve your home’s appearance…without spending a fortune? Here’s how I gave our old family room a burst of color – without bursting our budget!
I was tired of looking at the same old earth tones in our family room. Everything seemed so “safe” and blah.
With winter storms blowing in every week, I wanted a fresh burst of spring! But I had to stay within a budget as we just finished up with holiday spending.
I browsed through Pier 1 Imports and with great ease I collected a few colorful and well-made items and put those together to coordinate an outstanding new look for our family room that screamed “fresh and alive!” I began by removing the throw pillows that came with our sofas. I replaced them with bright gold pillows. I was just looking for a splash of color to brighten those sofas.
On the walls, I relocated a hanging clock and took down old tired pieces of artwork and replaced them with paintings with the same vibrant gold color to honor the new theme: new life! Pier 1 had some gorgeous silk florals on sale and I teamed them up with a handsome red hand blown glass vase for a stunning look.
Finally, I grouped a cluster of simple white glass candle holders of various sizes, inserted brand new scented yellow candles and the look was elegant, yet comfortable and new. For less than $150 I changed a tired room and gave it a clean, fresh new look.
That’s all we needed!
We didn’t need to paint, buy new furniture etc. It just needed a lift, and our spirits soared.
You don’t always have to think big when redecorating. Something as small as new throw pillows and new scattered throw rugs might be all you need.
