Budget Friendly Spring Refresh

The necessaries always take priority over the wants, but should that stop you from creating a home you love? Certainly not! Here is how we are creating a Budget Friendly Spring Refresh for our home.

Today I’m sharing that by using what you have, you can still create a lovely space each season.

Do you live with an ugly dated door? Here is how we brightened our Entryway with a DIY Glass Door Insert. It's scary to think you can cut a hole in your front door, but look at this amazing transformation!

If you’re new here, I’m Jen and this is my blog Noting Grace, where I show you how to dress your nest for less and this budget friendly Spring refresh is undoubtedly what my blog is all about!

So this past Christmas, the one thing our boys wanted was a game room – a teen man space where they could hang.

We gave them our old couches and TV, but that meant we had to make a few new purchases for our family room.  

While it was a great decision we made, that large of a purchase also monopolized my decor budget.

Of course, that’s how life happens, isn’t it?

But a tight budget shouldn’t stop you from creating the look you want for the season!

By shopping from my home, and pulling last year’s decor from the closet, I was able to surround myself with touches of Spring decor. Here’s how I did it.

Our new couches are so nice and comfy. We got them from a local furniture store, but they are made by Ashley and called Lanier Alloy.

We opted for two sofas instead of a sofa/loveseat combo since our room allows the space for both.

One particularly awesome thing about the new wifi TV is that we weren’t tethered to the internet input.

So that means I can change the layout of my room which I love to do quite often!

I paired it with some hydrangeas – my favorite flower – to contrast with the metal. Placing them in a few stacked wooden boxes softens the area just perfectly.

The colors just sing Spring to me! Not to mention the fact that every time I stumble upon a bottle with that gorgeous blue hue, I’m like a moth to flame shouting ‘gimme, gimme, gimme!’

So there you have it my friends! Since our budget was tight, we didn’t have much to decorate for Spring.

But by shopping from your closet and repurposing items in your home, you can easily create a space that fills your heart with joy!

Above all, don’t be afraid to try things in new spaces to see if they work.

As a matter of fact – you just might find a whole new look you absolutely adore!
