Magnificent Makeovers on a Budget
Have you ever watched those TV shows where some lucky homeowner 
gets a room redecorated by a professional? To have something similar done 
in your own home you would have to make a serious investment, or become 
a TV show guest!
However, there are ways to re-decorate a room and make it look great –
even spectacular – on a budget.
Say, for example, you want a living room makeover. If your sofa is worn you 
can buy a fitted sofa cover that will make it look almost new. Table cloths on 
worn end-tables and other surfaces can have a similar affect.
Don't forget the most economical redecorating trick of them all: Paint! A 
fresh coat of paint can bring a room to life!
Hanging a few new pictures can also have a dramatic impact on the look of 
a room. You don't have to buy a Rembrandt. Attractive, simply framed 
pictures will also add interest and colour.
With a little imagination, it's amazing how much you can improve a room on 
a little or even no budget.

Have you ever watched those TV shows where some lucky homeowner gets a room redecorated by a professional? To have something similar done in your own home you would have to make a serious investment, or become a TV show guest! One of our families favourite shows to watch used to be Extreme Makeover Home Edition with Ty Pennington...but not all home makeovers have to be as extreme as his were. :)
