With fresh, spring weather often comes a desire to refresh one’s home, as well. However, not many of us are ready to put down a considerable amount of money on new furniture, artwork, or other decorative items. Sound familiar? If so, you’ll love to learn that there are unique ways to repurpose the things you already own to make your space feel new again. Check out these great ideas!
Hang Unconventional Items
If you have a lot of hats, baskets, postcards, or anything else that can be easily displayed, consider hanging them! You can make a stunning wall display out of beloved items or collectibles. When installing, be sure to use removable hooks, like 3M Command Hangers and Strips, which require no hammering or drilling to install and are easy to find at your local drugstore or supermarket.
Swap Out Throw Blankets and Pillows
When it comes to making a statement, there’s no easier way to do it than by incorporating a throw blanket or decorative pillow. Not only are these items generally budget-friendly, but they can also easily set the tone of any given room. If your living area or bedroom is starting to feel a bit “blah,” try pulling an older blanket out of storage, or simply swap your pillows or shams with those from another room.
Repaint Your Furniture
Repainting your furniture is a wonderful way to breathe new life into your pieces and, as a result, your entire apartment. While not a quick fix, this project is ideal for anyone who has a few days and a little bit of money to dedicate to the task. The good news? Once completed, you can bet that you’ll fall in love with your freshly repainted desk, end table, or even bedframe all over again!
Making our residents’ lives easier and more enjoyable is a primary goal of ours at Appling Lakes Apartments in Cordova, Tennessee. We hope that these new ideas add convenience to your day-to-day routine!
