Redecorating on a Dime? Work With You’ve Got
The price of redecorating can be out-of-this-world, but it doesn’t need to be. With creativity, DIY perseverance, and craftiness, you can decorate on a dime…or very close to it. How do you do it? Easy – just use the suggestions below. As you might guess, it’s all about working with what you’ve got.
Find out what you have to work with: Get reacquainted with your own possessions. What do you want to do with the old stuff in your new space-to-be? Keep? Relocate to another room? Store? The inventory process spurs creativity and stimulates planning, and helps you to decide what’s missing and what you will need to invest in.
Re-purpose: Determine how you can re-purpose items you already have to create what you want. Maybe you’d like a new entertainment center. But wait; you have a nice old sideboard, so you can remove drawers to create space underneath, add a lick of paint, and …there’s your entertainment center. Cost: paint and some manual labor.
Swap items room-to-room: Just rearranging furniture can change a room’s look dramatically. From furniture, to what you have on the walls, to decor items, re-arrange or swap things between rooms.
Slipcover: Maybe you have a couch or some slipper chairs you’d like to change up. Check online for slipcovers. These days, it’s not about your grandmother’s slipcovers; there are some attractive and affordable options available now, and they can totally transform your space.
Relax and Relish: Relax and relish your new space. You deserve it.
