If you like change like I do, you get bored of your home every six months, pretty much on the dot. Since moving wasn't in the cards this time, I decided to mix things up a little bit. There are so many little easy and cheap things you can do to change things up in your home.
First of all: Declutter
Getting rid of odds and ends that you don't really need (or don't need out where everyone can see) makes SUCH a huge difference in the way your place looks.
They are so easy to change and inexpensive if you buy fabric on sale or clearance. I took all my mismatched pillows and made 4 faux leather covers for them. I LOVE them!
Picture Collages/Big Statement Pictures
You can tell I'm a photographer when you walk in my house because I hang photos EVERYWHERE. They are inexpensive when you buy frames secondhand and get your pics printed online. I actually really like this online company when they have deals going. Just don't print at Costco or Walmart, unless you don't care how they look I guess. It is fun to be able to change them with the seasons.
Accent LightingI actually just bought these paper lanterns secondhand for 50 cents each and strung white Christmas lights through them. You can find all sorts of cool lamps in secondhand stores or yard sales.
There are still things I need to work on in this room...but for now I am happy with the changes.
What are some things you do to mix things up in your homes?
