A Little Sprucing Up

A Little Sprucing Up

Spruce Up a Sofa

If your sofa is looking a little tired there are plenty of ways you can fix it up in order to give it a whole new look -  and they all take only a day or two. If it's looking a little sad and saggy you can wrap the cushion inserts with cotton batting in order to bring it back to life; if it's a new style you desire try adding some nailhead trim around the perimeter of the frame to give it a more tailored look; or switch out the legs to alter the overall style (i.e. change block legs to something more decorative).

Install Bead Board

If applied molding is too complicated you can always install bead board on your walls (halfway up the wall to mimic wainscotting looks great, but don't be afraid to go three quarters or all the way up if it suits your home). Since bead board comes in large sheets the installation is actually pretty simple. Just remember to cut holes for outlets and light switches. 

Paint Something

Where would we be without paint? It's every professional and amateur decorator's favorite and most powerful tool. In a weekend you can accomplish almost any paint job - bookshelves, cabinets, furniture, or even entire rooms. Just make sure you get the proper type of paint for whatever project you're doing and prep the space appropriately. And if you're doing a job that requires more than one coat make sure you give the first coat time to dry before putting on the second.
