For most of us, the thrill of finding a great deal while shopping can be addicting. Coming home with something new that we can look at, smile at and show off is lots of fun. But shopping all the time can also lead to trouble. So today, I wanted to share a way to save some money and still have the thrill of something new and nice – redo old items in your house! I’ve been doing it all summer, and while it may take a little elbow grease, the money I have saved is downright amazing. Plus, I love the feeling of accomplishment that comes from knowing “I did that.”
Bedrooms don’t receive as much traffic as the living room or kitchen, but the decor of your bedroom sets the mood, whether you want a relaxing, spa-like retreat or a funky, modern room. Whether you’re decorating a small guest bedroom or an expansive master suite, you will find plenty of ways to infuse your own personality and decorating style into the decor.
A few hours and a pint or two of paint can transform a humdrum piece of furniture into a conversation piece or family heirloom. Hand-painting furniture for your baby’s nursery, your living room, your patio or kitchen not only guarantees you an original piece of furniture, it provides you with the satisfaction that “decorator” pieces from the store will never be able to match.
