This week’s frugally fun is redecorating for next to nothing. Earlier this year I decided to do some things to make the bedroom more cheerful and bright during the dark days of winter.
So I pulled out a lovely coral pink bedspread that I had in storage. Cost: zero.
And I found a cute brightly coloured teacup and a large peony flower at the dollar store for on the side table. Cost $3.
I brightened up a dark green chair by repurposing a white bedsheet into a slipcover and adding a beautiful floral pillow. Cost $2.
And I spray painted an old lamp I had turning the base from a dark, sombre brown into a lovely bright Caribbean blue. Cost $2.
So for $7 I completely changed the look in my bedroom. Now it’s sunny and bright and cheerful. And I’m dreaming of tropical vacations much more often.
