Today’s post is all about using what you already have to decorate your home. You’d be amazed what you can create with just a little effort and getting creative.
Once my husband and I moved into our new home the design challenge began for me. My first obstacle wasn’t buying new things for our home but figuring out where our existing home décor should go. Our walls were newly re-surfaced, I had applied the fresh paint, and therefore my wall art, pictures, etc., sat on the floor for a good two months. Gasp! Needless to say I got past my fear of putting tiny holes everywhere on our walls in case I didn’t like where I placed a certain picture.
I also formed a love/hate relationship with certain décor items. I had two big canvases that would no longer match the color scheme in the new house. Do I give them away? Do I donate them? Do I at least keep one?
I figured if I am going to just give them away that I could at least attempt to give them a face lift. After using drywall compound as a material on one canvas, lots of fun paint, and patience, I had new wall art! I can’t believe the difference of the before and after. I couldn’t be more thrilled!
