If your home needs an update pull out the paint instead of replacing items. Paint is one of the easiest and least expensive ways to update your home.
Adding a new color to a focus wall is an easy way to add a pop of color to any room.
You can buy paint in a variety of colors and textures. I recently purchased three cans of spray paint for less than $10. I updated a plastic flower pot, 2 flower pots, a tray and ottoman and had paint leftover.
Besides coming a variety of colors you can also find spray paint that looks like metals such as brass, copper, bronze and stone textures. There are also kits available to refinish cabinets and countertops for a fraction of replacing.
Over the past ten years I have painted many things in my house including the kitchen cabinets and brick fireplace.
Thrift stores, yard sales and flea markets are great places to find items to refurbish if you don’t have any or want different items. You may be able to find items for a fraction of the retail price and paint to match your décor.
By decorating with colorful items and neutral colored furniture, it is easier and less expensive to change the accent colors instead of needing to purchase new furniture.
