Living in Hot Springs gives me the opportunity to do some amazing houses on the lake. While a lot of these houses are my client's only home, some are second homes and with that, comes a much smaller budget. I enjoy small budgets just as much as I love the larger one's because I get to be creative and dig deep to find some really neat ways to transform the home on a smaller scale.
Throughout my blog posts, I will be showing you some of my favorite things to do to transform your home through some easy DIY projects and ideas. Don't have time for DIY? Well of course I can help you out there as well. You can call me any time!
My first tip I am going to give you is the biggest bang for your buck and the fastest approach to make a room look totally different...Paint!
If you have enough money for a couple of rollers and a few gallons of paint, you are in business! I always say that light and airy is a good way to go if your room has been dark and drab for so long! I also love salmon's and golds to add richness to a room.

If you want to add interest, you can always tape out and paint a 10-12" vertical or horizontal stripe in the room alternating a matte and an eggshell for a subtle change or a few shades up or down from each other for a more drastic change.
Don't be afraid to throw in another size or color as well such as these:
Also, since we are talking about walls...I have been loving wall decals lately. These are a cheap and very easy way to add some flair to your room and the best part of all is that they peel right off with no damage when you want a change!
Whether it's a small bathroom or a large family room, the first step to any space transformation is your paint! Pick something you can live with for a while and you won't believe how different your room can look in just one day!
Until Next Time!
