With your Christmas decorations down your house may be looking a little lackluster. You’re used to seeing sparkly lights and added color to your now duller looking home. Use this as motivation to update your home décor. Here are some budget friendly tips for updating your home.
Do-it-yourself! Reupholster old chairs with new fabric to bring them back to life. You don’t need to be an excellent sewer for this task. Simply buy enough fabric to cover the existing cushion, tuck it under (ensuring it’s smooth), and use your staple gun to affix the fabric to the bottom of the chair. Look for bright fabric or interesting patterns to liven up a room.
Treat yourself to fresh flowers to brighten-up any room. It’s amazing what a few fresh flowers and a pretty vase can do to a space.
Give old pieces a fresh look with pretty new knobs. Take a look at your hutches and armoires. Replacing old hardware with pretty or interesting knobs, like ones from World Market, can really change the look of the whole piece.
Flea markets are your friend! Search flea markets for vintage mirrors that you can hang on an empty wall. Cluster smaller mirrors together for an interesting look.
