Updating a Room

7:00 PM

It's amazing how much better a piece of furniture can look by painting it and adding TLC.  That piece can transform an entire room!

I inherited this chair from my parents.  I have four of them and have never been quite sure what to do with them.  They've never matched anything else.

Now that we've moved, I've discovered the need for more furniture to fill up space.  Instead of running to the store, I searched my own belongings to see what I could salvage.  This falls under my Guidelines for decorating on a budget.  I found these chairs in the attic and this is how I transformed them.

They go perfectly in here:

Now we have more seating for guests and a touch of color in this room!

Can you believe this is what the room used to look like?

As long as I follow Homeowner 101, the room should remain crisp and fresh for a long time.  All I'll have to do is update it here and there.
