Refresh the Walls
When we talk about painting, we can’t forget the impact that painting the walls can have.
While this is one of the larger DIY home decor tasks, it’s also the one that will make the biggest impact on the overall “feel” of your home.
If you’re planning on living in your home for a while, get creative. You don’t need to feel burdened by potential future buyers or “conventional” colors. This is for you!
Different colors give your home different vibes. If you want a cool and relaxed feeling in your home, consider colors like blue and purple.
If you want to convey warmth, try pinks, oranges, and reds.
If you’re really feeling creative, create a statement wall! This is one wall that contrasts with the others.
It can either be plain (but in a contrasting or complementary color), or you can do fun designs with paint or wallpaper.
If you want to let someone else handle the difficult task of painting, consider hiring professionals, like those at Picture Perfect Painting Ca Inc.

Refresh Some Used Furniture
What about bringing new items into the home?
New furniture is expensive, and it isn’t always easy to find something that will be the perfect fit for your “vision.” Why not upcycle some old furniture?
You can start with what you already have.
Do you want to revamp that boring beige desk? Paint it teal or pink! What about making that old dresser match your orange bedroom?
If you don’t have anything that you want to paint, this is the perfect time to head to the thrift store or local yardsales.
You can find some cheap treasures and revamp them so that they fit your aesthetic.
Make a DIY Cohesive Gallery Wall
Speaking of revamping some old things, why not add a gallery wall to your newly-painted room?
Gallery walls are great for showing off all of your art, photos, and hangable trinkets in one place. To make a great gallery wall, though, you need to make it cohesive.
It’s hard to find that many frames that all fit together (and new frames are expensive).
Instead, hit up local secondhand shops to find frames in fun shapes and sizes that you can repaint so they go together.
This is a great arts and crafts project!
