I hope the inspiration will hit you this year to revolutionize your home.
Having been (I say been, in the hopes that it is now in the past) an enormous pack rat my entire life, I find incredible freedom in taking used furniture and fabulifying it for a new and fresh purpose. Out with the "old", in with the "new". The new things don't have to be brand new -- but they can be new to you! Don't be afraid to get rid of things you've had for a long time. It's okay to replace and change. Every time you get something new, get rid of something old. Live fresh!
***movie quote break: they should call us the febreze couple, cause it's feeling so fresh right now. (the other guys).
I think it's important to refresh yourself with new details of living. Whether you entitle yourself as "creative" or not, there are so many ways to brighten or lighten or delighten your home with very little expense.
Exhibit A: old, used and abused coffee table. price: $22.00 at a consignment/thrift store. Take a look at the transformation, from stained and ugly top, to chic black top TV stand.
Exhibit B and C: remember the endtables I showed you in my earlier post? Here's a full recap of the process.
P.S. Speaking of this corner table with our lovely house plants, I owe a big thank you to the previous inhabitant of this apartment, for leaving this incredible pot behind our bushes! Thank you, whoever you are!
