My interest for decorating has fueled me to get my hands on every decorating book that gets my fancy. For as long as it is easy to understand and not very technical I go for it.
Having said that, I have learned that in decorating you don’t have to keep acquiring new stuff to change the look or refresh a room. You can always work with what you’ve got. It’s so much like dressing up or putting together an outfit. Affordable alterations can bring a lift of an extreme makeover to any room of your home.
A new coat of paint for instance is an inexpensive way to transform a room. So is reupholstering a well made sofa. Perhaps, refinishing a cabinet from its old color to a different color. Or one of the things that can be done which is less likely to pop on once mind is to replace those old ugly legs of a dresser, or a sofa. Imagine swapping them to modern chrome or pretty wooden spindles. Lastly how about replacing that old entertainment center to a more sleek tv stand.
Your new television for sure deserves a more modern piece. This you may say is not updating but replacing, but if you just got that new TV it does call for a new TV stand.
