Living Room Decor in Reston, VAImprove your home décor on a budget by utilizing your creativity and items you already have along with a few inexpensive purchases. This will allow you to update your home’s look with very little cost, so here are some inspirations to get you started!

1. Repaint your trim.
This can mean freshening up white trim with another coat of white, or you can be daring and paint the trim another color. Depending on the look you’re going for and how bold you’re feeling, you can transform a room with pastel, brightly colored, or black trim.

2. Use leftover paint for a furniture makeover.
Do you have paint left over from a past remodel? Consider using it to update and refresh an old piece. Possibilities include:
   •    Paint the legs of a dining, coffee, or end table.
   •    Paint some of the detailing on your china hutch’s door or drawer fronts.
   •    Add a burst of color to a toy box, shoe cabinet, or child’s dresser.

3. Make your own wall hangings.
With picture frames, articles you have around the house, and some creativity, you can give your wall décor a makeover. Some of the possibilities are:

   •    Frame a piece of felt and then glue pebbles, sticks, shells, and/or buttons to it to create a picture or abstract design.
   •    Display some of your favorite candid photos of you and your loved ones. Tie the display together with coordinating matting and/or frames.
   •    Frame some of your child’s artwork, school photos, and awards and create a gallery wall in his or her bedroom.
   •    You can even frame items like T-shirt fronts with funny slogans, old license plates, pieces of patterned cloth or upholstery, and vintage book covers.

4. Rearrange.
Don’t underestimate the power of simply rearranging what you already have. Do a little research, get some professional furniture arrangement tips from the internet, and then change things up in the rooms that need a new look.

5. Re-purpose.
Re-purposingis a great way to enjoy the benefits of new furniture without actually buying any. Use cabinet glass to turn a hutch into a display case. Paint an old dresser white and use it as a bathroom corner cabinet. Add a frame to a piece of mirror glass and make it your entryway wall hanging.

6. Bring in some natural beauty.
Items from nature have a unique ability to make a space more calming and beautiful. Try bringing in:

   •    Potted plants.
   •    Fresh flower arrangements.
   •    Mason jars full of shells from your beach vacation.
   •    Live edge wooden bows.
