Is time to sell your home and there are a few home projects you know will increase your home’s value, but you may have procrastinated on them? If you’ve wanted to add to a charming space for some time now but just haven’t had the time or the budget, you may be surprised at the places you can visit to find affordable furniture pieces and décor elements.
From second-hand stores to looking at newspapers for furniture sales, there is a way to create a relaxing retreat that will help you and—later on—new home buyers unwind after a long day. Plus, having your home look fantastic when buyers wander inside will also score some points. Don’t fret if it takes a while for your home to sell – thankfully I was able to sell my house fast in Dallas and still feel like all the time I spent on improving my home’s value was well spent.
Second hand stores have bedroom treasures
Many second-hand stores have furniture that’s only slightly used or antique furniture that’s easy to repair. Spend anywhere from ten to fifty dollars on a nice piece of furniture and develop your own DIY project on a fun weekend. You might find a lattice headboard that will look beautiful in your relaxing space or a lamp that’s chic with its retro lamp shade.
Look through the newspaper for daily sales
Unfortunately, due to a bad economy, plenty of companies are going out of business or have occasional weekend sales. To stay in the know of sales, check your newspaper, subscribe to favorite site newsletters, and always be on the lookout when you drive by your favorite stores. If you’re going for a relaxing retreat bedroom look, visit sales that offer plush pillows and blankets and buy them for reduced cost. Or, find a new coverlet from a shop like Target in their sales section and use this pretty cover to make a bed look dreamy and inviting.
Scour Pinterest for DIY relaxing bedroom ideas
Pinterest is certainly addicting, so why not use it to your advantage and come up with inexpensive ways to create a relaxing retreat? From old mirrors to fish tanks, find items that you may already have in your house and use them to develop a tranquil bedroom. An old mirror can easily be repainted to create a charming shabby chic look, and a fish tank can be cleaned and reused as a fun tank full of fish that’s perfect for a bedroom.
Look through the images on Pinterest and use your imagination to create a dreamy bedroom. Also, start hunting and find old décor pieces that are already in your house or the attic. With a fun DIY project, they can be transformed!
Instead of thinking that there’s no way to create a beautiful bedroom retreat that will help you and future home buyers unwind, it’s time to start being inspired and think of ways to be frugal. You’ll be surprised when you find inexpensive pieces of furniture at a second-hand store and will be thrilled also to find relaxing elements that are already in your house. All of these treasures are just waiting to be implemented into a relaxing retreat in a creative way.
