photoChange a room’s look or set a new mood without spending anything but a little time.  It’s Springtime.  Most people start with the garden.  But I always feel the urge to redecorate as soon as the sun starts to peek out….

Here are some ways to change, tweak and adjust a home without spending a dime!  Let’s Do It!

1.  Light Your Candles – They create a lovely ambience like nothing else.

2.  Arrange Your Coffee Table Nicely – A tray, a basket, a vase of flowers, a book.  That’s all you need.

3.  Take Scissors Outside And Cut Something To Put In Water – Get creative.  Even weeds or a bit of green foliage can be beautiful.

4.  Use Up Leftover Paint On Small Projects – A touch up on legs of a table or chairs, the edge of picture frames, the bottom of a vase.

5.  Use Your Best – My Fave!  Don’t wait for a special occasion to bring out the good china or fancy glasses.  What’s the point of having it.  Elevate your daily routine by using your best.  Enjoy Each Day!!

6.  Swap Photos In Frames – An easy way to give a room a fresh look by simply trading out the current photos.

7.   Give Something Away – Pick 5 items that you no longer like and give them away to refresh your room.
