7. Paint: What's better & that will make a space feel fresher? How about fresh coat of paint! If you are allowed I say go for it, I did it in my space and I have loved it everyday since. If you can't paint, why not paint your furniture or accessories instead? It will still give a sense of new without a whole lot of work.

Re-make an old & tired tray, repurposed an old stool and make it a new part of your home. Spray paint is also a wonder that literally works on anything.



9. Washi Tape: Now this stuff is awesome, from big to small you can do ANYTHING. I re-did my bulletin board and this stuff sticks great & looks awesome.
