When my husband and I first moved into our little starter home, I never dreamed we would be living here twelve years later with three children and a beagle. In the busy everyday of raising children and homeschooling, we have outgrown the space and haven’t really had the resources to update as I would prefer. In the Spring, I always feel an extra longing to renovate, but the budget just doesn’t allow for a total makeover.
Brightening Up a Room with a Budget Sofa Makeover
I would really love to repaint my entire house in bright, vibrant colors, replace old furniture, and artistically scatter flowers and unique statement art throughout. That kind of major upgrade just isn’t realistic this year, so right now I am looking for inexpensive solutions to make a big impact on my living room. I was thrilled to find fresh throw pillow covers to brighten up my worn leather sofa; all at $5 or less with free shipping! You can find inexpensive pillow inserts at Michael’s or Jo-Ann Fabric and a coupon would make them even more affordable. Otherwise, old, freshly washed pillows can get a face-lift with one of these bright new covers.
If your living room décor is looking dated, upgrade your couch and change the whole look of the room. Find current trends on for a fraction of the price you would pay at department stores for the same styles! Next planned project: remaking the mantelpiece vignette with thrifted finds.
