If you are thinking I need new furniture but can’t afford it. Don’t be afraid to be creative with your old furniture. Move it to a new spot in your house. Try your dresser in the family with fresh updated knobs behind the sofa. Try the loveseat as seating in the breakfast nook . Move a lamp that is in the office to your bedroom. Move a picture that once hung in the mudroom to the laundry room (my personal favorite). You’d be surprised what rearranging a room can do.
I remember when I had cancer Christoph’s mother came to visit. I was in my bed resting and heard her say,
“Looks like Mandi is feeling better!”
I later asked my husband what she was talking about? Apparently he had rearranged the furniture in our family room and she assumed I had done it. I was so PROUD of my husband and his creative desire!
