It’s official: spring is here. As the weather warms up and we start to look at the famous spring cleaning, we also start considering small little projects around the house to welcome spring and shake off the cold winter days. This is the perfect time to do a few updates, make a few upgrades and start that DIY project you’ve been pushing to be back burner for weeks.
Giving a room a fresh look doesn’t mean you need to break the bank, and there are tons of ways to give your living room, craft room, or any other room in your home a quick update on a budget.
No Need to Kill Your Budget
The reality is that many of us are on a tight budget, and as much as we would like to refresh our homes every season, that might be out of the question for some of us. The good news is that adding a few small touches can be done with just a few minor changes and additions to your current décor.
Decorative pillows are always a good way to spice up and refresh a room and an option that can be fairly inexpensive if you know where to look. This time of year, many stores will have a great selection of discount home décor items that will do wonders for any room in your home.
You can also add different designs to the cushion and decorative pillows that you already have. Stencils are great tools for DIY projects and an inexpensive way to refurbish not only pillows but also furniture and many other items in your home.
What You Can Decorate with Stencils
You can create anything from a focus wall to a unique set of cushions with stencils! The beauty of using stencils is that you can create a unique look and add the colors and patterns that you want for your projects instead of having to settle for something that you found already made in a store.
Keep It Simple
If this is your first time trying something like this, keep in mind that sometimes less is more. Start with something as simple as a word stencil to give some sass to a specific corner of your home or, of course, to a cushion or decorative pillow.
Give New Life to Old Furniture
Have a piece of furniture that could use some TLC? Stencil away! You will be amazed by the things you can accomplish with a can of paint and a stencil.
Not All Stencils Are Created Equal
Many different stores offer stencils, but I recommend going with a stencil that is made from quality materials so that you can not only re-use it but also get the right results for your project.
