Do It Yourself Feng Shui Changes : Repaint Your Bookcase

By
Home Stager with Feng Shui Manhattan Long Island #888

I received an update from a client, sharing the progress she has made so far. It's been a couple of months since she moved into her new home. The furniture has been arranged, the artwork hang and shelving placed on the wall. Now, she is ready to address the finer details. 

One of those details include repainting her bookcase. By doing this, she would help open up her room to more breathable energy. The darker wood stain of her bookcase absorbed light. This made her room feel a bit heavy and the bookcase is what greets you upon entering into her bedroom.

So much better! Now you have a lighter energetic feeling and visually the bookcase seems to attract you into her bedroom, which is great! It does not take much to create a great feeling space with little to no major financial investments. Shop around your home and see what you could mindfully recycle and refresh.

I really like the change and the fresh look and lighter colors.  Paint can make transformations take place.
