Rethink, Refresh, Reuse

It is tough to save money and get wanted jobs done when needed jobs take precedence.  By rethinking, and reusing what we have we can save a ton of money.  It takes just a little imagination and know how.  If you see a picture in a magazine that you love, take a look at items in your own home.  Try looking at them with a different eye.  Can you change the paint color, change the knobs, change the legs, add a piece of fabric to give it a new look.  Many items may be old and you are tired of looking at them but by thinking of them in a different color, fabric, style you can create an entirely different piece.  Rearranging furniture in your room is a simple solution and will give you a new look.  Freshen it up with a new paint color with some throw pillows and a new piece of art.  Big Lots and Garden Ridge have amazing deals on art work.  Perhaps a new rug, sprucing up the cabinets with some organizing baskets.  You can do all of these items yourself and have a refreshed room while saving money.  If you feel you do not have the vision well that is where I come in, give me a call.  I can help you identify items that can be restored or redesigned by yourself or by me…..I would be happy to lend my expertise on Rethinking, Refreshing, and Reusing.  I have many clients that have pieces that were out of trend.  Simple sanding, priming, changing paint color and a few knobs they now have a piece to put in a freshly painted room that fits todays trendy market.  Below you can see some of the projects for clients that I have completed while saving them money.  The bedroom dresser was a fire rescue for $45.00.  By painting with a silver rub, glass knobs and a new faux marble sink top it is a one of a kind lovely vanity in a master bathroom.  The country-style coffee table and end table, refreshed by painting the bottoms white and the top a darker stain; a new up to trend look.  The dining room chair fabric was cream damask and soiled easily.  Changing the seat fabric is an inexpensive and easy way to refresh your chairs and give an entirely new look to your dining room.  Shopping at second-hand stores and consignment shops will save you money too!  Many items are gently used and with a fresh coat of wax or paint that old item can be renewed.  It brings new meaning to one man’s trash is another man’s treasure…..OR WOMAN”S in my case…..Let me know if I can help find hidden treasures within your home.  757-639-5796 or  Deborah
