Pillows And Lampshades For A Quick Makeover

If you are looking for a simple room makeover, that won’t break the bank, here are two ideas to try:

1) Change out some of your lamp shades. Lamp shades can be inexpensive, if purchased at a discount store, or a variety store like WalMart or Target. Find lamp shades that match, or will compliment your current decor. Darker lamp shades will make the light appear dimmer, whereas, light colored lamp shades will brighten the room.

2) Change, or add colorful throw pillows. If you are handy with a sewing machine, make a slipcovers for your pillows. Find complimentary fabrics. If you are real handy with hand sewing or your sewing machine, you can also add fringe or tassels.

As with the lamp shades, check your local discount or variety stores, for bargains on throw pillows.

A few simple changes will give your room a new look.

As a home stager, I’m also very attentive even to minor details such as this or else, I’ll be wasting more money before I even get to earn them. In a home staging business , doing simple yet awesome affordable make-overs but are pleasing to eyes can be a plus factor & even if you just need to beautify up your house, this is what you don’t need to ignore. I like the way this article is presented here, accurate, brief and clear! More power!

  2. I recently watched a lampshade craft project on tv that I thought was pretty cool. They took a photogragh, enlarged it to a size to fit around the lampshade and then glued it to the lampshade fabric. It looked like a cheap easy way to make a custom shade that looked really neat.
    Thought your readers might like this idea.
