1/ Paint a piece of furniture

Painting a piece of furniture is a great place to start when you want to add some character to your home. It can be any piece of furniture in a room, and you can paint it any color you want.

2/ Hang some interesting art on the walls

If you have a lot of blank wall space, hanging some art is a great way to add personality. You can find affordable art that will match the style of your home, and that is suitable for different rooms. If you are unsure what type of art to hang, you can find some inspiration online then customize it to fit your needs and style.


3/ Build a headboard out of reclaimed wood

This is a great project for anyone handy with tools, and it’s affordable since you can find reclaimed wood for cheap at thrift stores or online. Plus, it’s eco-friendly because you’re using recycled materials.



4/ Replace the light fixtures

Just be sure that the new light fixture will fit in with your decor, so it looks like it belongs there.
