Holly and Heather’s Helpful Hint: Repurpose

We have been doing a lot of spring cleaning lately and it feels so good to get rid of things and organize our homes.  After de-cluttering a room, stop and take a look around.  Is this room bringing you joy?  Is it what you envisioned it to be?   We find that sometimes just staring at the same old pictures and knick knacks year after year gets tiresome and it’s time for a change.  Maybe you are not into a certain style or color scheme anymore.  Pack it up and find a new purpose for it.  Repurposing items is a great way to redecorate without spending a lot of, if any, money.

Here’s some things we did:

While changing the theme of one room a while ago, we stored pictures away.  When the time came to clean up another room, we pulled out that stored artwork to use in the new space.

Don’t throw away old frames, paint them and reuse them.

We almost threw away a used plant holder and instead decided to move it outside.  Usually outside areas can use a little more sprucing up and it’s a good way to not clutter up the inside of your home when you can move things outside.

Get creative with your space and repurpose items.  It’s great to get a new perspective on something old.
