sweet and simple homemade items plus some painted furniture and a little rearranging are a great way to make your house into a home without spending a ton of money.
When we moved into our house 9 years ago it was a little overwhelming.
Amazing and exciting but overwhelming.
There were a lot of things we imagined we would eventually do. Like replacing the kitchen floor, ceiling fans, painting each room.
It’s the first non-written draft of your new never ending & always growing project list.
After finally making some much needed changes to the front living room (aka the “piano room”), I came across a tutorial for making a quilted piano runner. What??? Who even knew those existed. I never even knew I needed one. Until now.
You can find the tutorial over at Bee in My Bonnet. Lori Holt shows us how to make a “Sweet & Simple” piano runner. that you never even knew you needed. It was part of her scrappy happy summer series, along with a handful of other fun quilty tutorials. Go take a peek.
Like I said in the beginning of this post…. making your house into a home doesn’t need to be expensive at all.
Yes, there will be household emergencies that suddenly pop up and cut in front of everyone on your project list, but don’t let that stop you.
Rearrange a few things, paint some old pieces of furniture for a fresh new look & definitely add some cute quilts to the room….. that makes any room look inviting.
Shop yard sales, accept hand me downs, save inspiration pictures from Pinterest ….but most of all enjoy the process.
Trust it will all eventually come together and just let it all happen when it does. Try cherishing your home in all its different quirky stages. Your mind and wallet will thank you for it in the end.
Happy decorating cute people!
