Five Ways to Revamp Your Home!

Spring has sprung here in Tennessee and I am more than ready for Spring cleaning! Lately, I have been on a pinning-spree with all things home related. Home d├ęcor, DIY headboards, kitchen remodeling... you name it, I'm pinning it. I used to think that revamping your home into something new and fresh took too much time and too much money and too much knowledge of all things carpentry. But I am realizing that with just a few tips and tricks, what normally would cost a fortune to try can really be done by any average person for half the cost! And since Spring is right at our doorstep, it's the perfect time to open up those windows and get to stylin'!
 
 
 
 
Paint Your Cabinets

Instead of spending a fortune on new cabinetry, why not paint the ones you already have? There are a ton of DIY guides all around the internet. I can't wait to go for an off-white distressed look in my kitchen this Spring.
 
 
 
 
Get Creative with Wood

Pallets are the new black. You can create literally anything out of wood. Pinterest is the best place to get ideas but look around your home and see what you're missing. Instead of spending money on a new coffee table, why not make one? What about a new headboard? Pallets, wood, stain and some nails are just about all you need! I cannot wait to get my hands on some pallets and create our own headboard for our master bedroom!
 
 
 
 
 
Add a New Focal Point to Your Favorite Room (or all of them!)

Whether that's your kitchen, bedroom, or living room, adding a new focal point creates a fresh and updated look. I love the idea of adding those bright antique plates to a kitchen or dining room wall. Photo collages are the perfect way to spice up your bedroom or living area. You can even have more than one! I love the idea of a photo collage in the living room of your family and a few local finds to make your home a bit more "you"!
 
 
 
 
 
Add Wallpaper
 
 
 
Painting is fun and great but want to really make a statement? Add wallpaper. When I used to hear that word, I used to think 1970s. But there is a plethora of options for any style!
 
 
 
 
 
Bring Nature Inside
 
 
 
Flowers make me happy. Adding a mason jar with fresh flowers to your coffee table or a fake bouquet in your kitchen brings in a sense of happiness and airiness to the room.
 
 
 
 
 
I can't wait to try all of these this Spring. It's going to be a busy season!
 
These are just a few things you can do to freshen up your home this Spring! What is your favorite DIY project?
