It’s spring and I love spring cleaning. If you’re one of those people who can’t get enough of spring cleaning or are you one of those who wanted to have a fresh new start after winter, then this blog post is for you!
To spring organize your home and to have it a fresh new look (even on a budget), you can follow the following tips below:
1) Bring a burst of spring to the entry.
Add a little something new to brighten the mood!
2) Decorate your mantel.
Use what you have! Say goodbye to winter and then gather up a stack of pretty books from around the house in colors you like, display a favorite spring-inspired collection, put a bouquet in a vase or frame a favorite family photo.
3) Get into a springy mood and rearrange some shelves.
Sometimes simply moving things around a bit will get you inspired! Try a new arrangement on shelves or console tables.
4) Set a pretty table.
You know, that table covered in clutter doesn’t inspire you, right? Clear off the table, wipe it down and make it pretty with simple spring table settings!
5) Shop at a flea market.
Go on a treasure hunt for an affordable second hand find. Bring it home, mix things up, rearrange, try things in a new place.
6) Plant a 5 minute garden.
Something about working with plants is so therapeutic! Succulents and small plants make gardening easy!
7) Line the inside of a door or a wall with inspiring art or postcards.
Do you have a dream vacation or a fond memory of one? Print out art and postcards to inspire you. Or maybe paper a wall with maps of your favorite places!
8) Freshen up the bedroom.
Add a new pattern or color to liven up your space!
9) Spray paint something.
Look around your garage or closets and find a fun accessory that just needs a little love. Candlesticks, small statues, even small toy animals! Spray paint them white, or gold! Here’s one of my little spray painted guys!
10) Clean out a drawer and make it pretty inside.
Why be sad when you open a drawer? You can easily place a divider for your undergarments or you can donate old clothes to make your drawers free of clutter.
