If the layout of your room has been the same for a long time, think about shaking things up. Change the layout of your furniture, move art around on your walls or switch it out with items you have in storage. If you like the way your furniture is arranged, consider swapping out accessories from other areas of your home. It’s simple and you don’t need to leave your home to do it.
Repurpose Left-Over Paint
You can transform just about anything by painting it. If you have leftover paint, consider painting something. A good place to start is plant stands, end tables or bookshelves. Adding white paint to picture frames, flowerpots, vases or knickknacks can jazz them up and make them look like new pieces.
