Make Over A Room On A Budget

Sure that when you make over a room, it is indeed very pretty expensive. But there are ways that we can make over without spending much. When you paint your room not the usual color that you had in your room, it is already a makeover and guess what, you still have dimes left.

Moving your furniture back and forth could be fun but make sure that you don’t strain your back. Putting your bed or sofa against in a different walls will make your room in a whole new arrangement.

Your center table can make a difference, you may want to change the table top or design your center table or anything. Or you may want to put a flower in the center of your table perhaps.

Change your throw pillow; hide those pillows that are already there for a long time, you may need to check some sale in the malls for throw pillows.

Try to change your wall to wall paper, choose a bright color something that you really really like. Change your wall and that’s it. Wall papers are not heavy in the pocket so absolutely I am sure you can still save some bucks.

One Of My Goals, One Of My Achievements

It was only last month that I decided to put an awning type or roof in our laundry area, this plan has been long overdue but due to financial constraints, it was only then realized recently. Good thing that recently I am so determined to saved up and I am proud to say that this is from my hard earn and from my saving.  Nevertheless, I have to thank my husband for the endless support; of course without him sending funds for our bills, some improvements in our house will not be achieved.

My sister is just so happy seeing this as she will no longer suffer from the dreading heat of the sun whenever she does the laundry. This has been used as a shelter for our dogs when they could not bear the summer heat in front of the house, they would go here to cool down.

So my next project will be the extension but I know I will have to start from dust, I need to save more for that. And I have to do a budget statement whenever I spend some things so my savings will not be ruin. It’s tempting to just spend without minding the project at all, but I want to do some fix and maybe renovation for this house because this is my only gift to my kids when I am gone. (knock on the wood) 

How I wish though that I am still here to witness their achievement in life.

In the meantime, I need to work hard for their future. I mean seriously, I really need to earn big bucks of money for this house, this serve already as one of my achievement and I am totally into it.

Just last week, I decided to use my savings to put up the awning type in the laundry area. It has been like years that I am planning to put one up but I always out of budget so last December, I tried to save up and was able to come up with an amount, I planned to just withdraw it on May but I realized summer is fast approaching and it would be so hot in our laundry area, my sister already have a hard time doing the laundry there how much more during summer. So I withdraw it and hired someone to do it and its worth it, sister is so happy with it, she doesn’t have to suffer anymore under the dreading heat of the sun.

5 Tips For Redecorating Your Home on a Budget

Whether you’re want to redecorate your home completely with a style that’s different than you’re used to or simply want to make some changes to improve your space, you don’t need to spend a fortune to get results. It’s tempting to go ahead and buy a lot of fancy furniture and decor at the store and hope it works in your space. But these kinds of decisions will lead to disappointment and a waste of money. Instead, make smart decisions to redecorate your home without breaking the bank. Here are five ideas to get you started.

Paint It Yourself

Nothing changes a room more quickly than adding a coat or two of paint in a fresh, vibrant color. It won’t cost a lot of money if you do it yourself, and painting your interior walls can be easy with a little practice. You don’t even need to paint the whole room. Even just adding a colorful accent wall can make a huge difference.

Rearrange the Furniture

Instead of buying a whole lot of new stuff, think about reusing and repurposing things that you already have. Think about the way your furniture would look in a different arrangement, including moving furniture between rooms. Rearranging your furniture can make a big change for little money.

Buy Furniture at a Reputable Store

Don’t waste your money on low-quality goods that you buy on impulse. Do your research before you buy. For example, if you need phoenix area furniture stores, try to find a company with a good reputation like Kerbys Furniture. That way you’ll know you’re getting something good and can feel confident that it will last a long time.

Add Fun Details

You don’t have to buy new furniture if you redecorate the old stuff with new accessories. Add throw pillows in a bright color or add a funky and fun rug on the floor. A piece of art on the wall or table can add sophistication and interest to any room. Pick something that you really love to add character to your space.

Be creative and Do it Yourself

Even if you’re not a very crafty person, try your hand at some home decor projects. You’d be surprised how easy it is to make minor changes to your home and furniture with a little work. Let your personality shine through your decor.
