Thrifty Home Improvement Tips : Don't Let The Recession Derail Your Project
Last fall, the word "recessionista" began popping up in mainstream media. Since then, it has become popular and chic to live a lifestyle that embodies high style without the high prices. Being a recessionista doesn't have to stop with your clothes, though; here is a list of ideas to give your home a recessional friendly style update!
Reupholster your dining room chairs or sofa cushions- To really cut costs, browse through the clearance aisle at your local fabric store.
Mix up the color scheme of the pillows and placemats. Updating for the seasons can really give a room a facelift. Popular colors for the spring include greens, blues, apricots and yellows.
Reframe or regroup your pictures- Before forking out the cash on new frames, check out your local Goodwill or Salvation Army store for some chic, vintage frames- and don't be afraid to repaint or refinish them.
Scope out your house for blank walls- these are your empty canvases so have at it! Be creative and unique.
Treat your bathroom to some new throw towels or rugs- a small upgrade with a big effect. And while you're at it, don't forget the shower curtain.
