This time last year we were just about to move into the new flat, it had been freshly painted in a neutral colour and being the trusting souls we were, we decided to skip painting again so soon and accent out the place using our own things, fast forward not so long after and smudges, stains and all sorts started showing through the paint and we were left wishing we had repainted when the place was empty.
Now we are thinking about what is the best step forward, obviously we need to redecorate but do we shuffle our things about and hope they come through the process OK or do we perhaps hang on in there a little longer and try and treat ourselves to a whole new look and while I know which one is most cost effective and likely to happen it doesn't stop me being able to dream, of my perfect spring time makeover for the place.
Dreaming is something I am good at and I have to say if money was no object I would start off with a beautiful Chesterfield Sofa and while I have protested in the past I would never have a leather one. I may just have fallen head over heels for the beautiful taupe one in the picture above. Using the sofa as my main colour, I could see myself easily buying new curtains, cushions and furniture, while painting the walls out in a colour such as Nutmeg White.
Of course as well as using the internet to blow the budget it also great for finding money saving ideas, that help you to make over your home on a budget, in fact I have been blown away by some of the ideas other bloggers have come up with to help DIY their home on a budget, take this post from Anna at In the Playroom who amazed me with all she brought for just £50. So maybe we could find a place that lays right in the middle allowing us to makeover to our hearts delight without worrying about the bank balance at the end.
Do you ever get the urge to make over a room in your home?
