Make Your House a Home
Your house is the one place you can go to get away from everything in the outside world.
You may live in a small structure or a very large house, regardless, make it a refuge, a place that you can go that calms you down from the stresses of everyday life.
Try to make it a rule that everyone that comes to your home leaves all negativity outside.
Do you spend much time just enjoying your home or your space? Or do you find any excuse to be out away from home? Why not stay home and get to know it better?
By spending more time in your home you will start to appreciate it and learn how to make it work for you.
If you make memories in your home you will find that it will mean more to you.
Your house needs to reflect your personality.
Visit thrift stores or auctions looking for unique pieces of furniture. Think out of the box when it comes to decorating your space.
There are many ways to freshen your space on a limited budget. Get creative.
Research websites and DIY magazines for projects that you can do to make your house a unique home. Learn about chalk paint and distressing furniture.
Buy used dressers and chests and repaint them. Look for old trunks that can serve as storage as well as tables. So many ideas you can do and each time you create something special, you are also creating a memory.
You do not have to break the bank when you decorate.
Even if you rent you can create a special oasis inside. Make it a place you enjoy coming home to each day.
If you are a renter and not allowed to paint the walls, go to a fabric store and buy yards of inexpensive fabric that you can attach to the walls. You can staple the fabric to the walls or hang on curtain rods. Then when you tire of the wall fabric you can make pillow covers, sheets, pillowcases, table cloths, napkins…Get the idea?
Also, check out thrift stores for curtains and throw pillows. You will find an amazing assortment of items. Let your imagination work over time!
You can also create “no sew” slipcovers.
So many ideas to make your house into a home that you really enjoy and that you want to invite your family and friends over to enjoy with you.
If you have collections of dishes and books try to use them often. Display them if you have room, maybe on shelves or in a lovely cupboard.
Use your creativity and have fun making your personal space something special that you can enjoy daily and be very proud to share with friends and family.
