Paint a piece of furniture.

If you have an old piece of furniture that is ugly and can use some care, paint it. Paint will hide most imperfections and you can make it a conversation piece by painting it a bold color.

Remove ALL clutter.

Get rid of clutter. It makes your home look (and feel) crowded and dirty. Throw away (or move) anything that doesn’t belong, is broken, or serves no purpose in the space. Decluttering will give your room a new look and will feel fresh and clean

Organize your space.

After you’ve decluttered, you want to make sure you reorganize. It’s extremely important to make sure that you know where everything is and have a designated spot for everything in your home. Try using decorative boxes and baskets, cubbies, and shelving to corral like items and have a cohesive look. I’ve recently done an organization challenge to help you guys get your home decluttered and organized. Check that out here.
