Do you ever change your mind in the midst of planning a makeover? When I'm going to make over a room, I start gathering inspirational photos from magazines, blogs and Pinterest. The first major thing is to pick a color theme for the room. I search for items for the room at thrift stores, garage sales and clearance sales. Piecing an inspiration board together is part of the process, however sometimes I make a u-turn in the plans. I'll find a new item that will work better for the room; and it's something that both my husband and I love. That's what has happened with my kitchen plans. Originally I was thinking along the lines of gray or blue gray walls with accents of yellow and white. That was until I found four curtain panels and a matching valance at the thrift store. We both enjoy coffee along with the colors of the sea. These curtain panels is a perfect blend of these themes.
Thus a change in plans.... I'll still be using some accents of white and yellow but just in a little different way than I first thought.
There's always the challenge of a small budget and working with what I have, and no structural changes in a home you don't own. How can I make the room look new and fresh without any major money spent. My plan is to begin the process this week.
Things to be done...
- paint the room
-makeover the curtains
- create new accents/decor for the room
-wash cabinets and woodwork
I'll keep you posted on the progress of the room makeover!
