Use as many of your old furnishings as possible. Try to rethink their use. A desk can be used as a sofa table, a table can be shortened for a coffee table, and an armoire can become a desk. Sofas can be slipcovered and chairs can be painted.
These tips can help liven up your room. Use one or all of them to redesign and redecorate your room and all for less than the cost of a good meal.
