After what has felt like a very long winter, we are finally feeling some heat and seeing more than just a glimmer of sunshine!
For me, this means I get the itch to start changing things around the home. Paint, furniture, plants, décor… you name it, I want to update it! Our home is mainly dark woods and greys but I want to freshen it up! Bring on… PINTEREST! Who doesn’t love sitting in front of the computer with a glass of rosé and going down the rabbit hole of Pinterest? (well my husband doesn’t like it & he certainly doesn’t like it when I do it!)
But let’s be honest here for a second, all those lovely pins you are saving and dreaming of… they are expensive to recreate. We all know the likelihood of redecorating your home just isn’t going to happen. It’s just a fact. So? How to update your home and stay in budget?
Throw pillows (preferably the ones you can just buy new covers for each season!). Possibly something new for the deck/patio. Small things can make a big difference. Plus, they just make you feel good!
Flamingos & pineapples are SUPER popular this year, in case you haven’t noticed. I absolutely loved the lawn chair from Winners, but at $60 a pop and I would need at least two… I can think of better things to purchase. The pineapple outdoor pillow from Michaels had a 40% off coupon available when I saw it… I should have grabbed one!
Bedding is also another good way to go. It’s not always cheap, depending on what you look for but new bed linens always, always make me happy. Choosing a site like Wayfair gives you lots of options at many price points! These three sets were under $150 and are so light and fresh looking!
