Getting new things aren't necessary as often as many people think. Wood furniture can look like a whole new piece when stained a different color, or if you're feeling spunky you could paint it a fun color and distress it. Finding a perfectly comfortable couch is hard enough, why try to do it again when you can to reupholster your old one to fit the new look of your home? And a sad, blase looking bathroom can be brought to live again with a new piece of art, interesting shower curtain and a Bathtub Refinishing.
Above all, enjoy the process of remodeling your home and have fun making it a place you love to be.
