When you get tired of a décor piece, why not trade with a friend? See if you can swap out something of hers for something of yours. A simple end table, decorative statue, or picture frames can all be swapped or traded! It is a great way to get a new to you item.
2. Make items pop with paint.
A coat of paint can make anything look new. Paint coffee tables, end tables, and even picture frames with a new coat of paint and watch it transform the space. If you want, you can even paint an accent wall in your room for an extra pop of color without investing too much time or money.
3. Add some fresh greenery.
Plants not only brighten your space up but help purify the air. Grab some colorful houseplants for a few bucks at Walmart and pair them with some pretty pots. They are sure to brighten up the space.
4. Fabric is your friend.
You can buy inexpensive fabric to cover pillows, make new curtains, or even cover small upholstered pieces. Fabric is an inexpensive way to freshen up a space and you have so many color and pattern choices.
5. Buy secondhand.
