Spring has sprung, and this season is one of renewal and change. If your home is a bit lackluster and you’re in need of a refresh, now’s the time. No need to call the contractor, there are simple, affordable changes you can make. We’ve got 6 ways to do it all for under $25 dollars.

This simple switch can bring character to your home. Small but mighty, putting new knobs on your drawers in your bathrooms, bedroom, or kitchen is a quick and easy way to refresh the look. No matter your style -- vintage, modern, or boho -- there are knobs that will complement it.

Go Wild With Spray Paint 

For less than $6 a can, the look of your entire home can be updated using spray paint. It can brighten up your dining chairs, give your bed frame a completely new look, make a bookshelf pop, or, add color to the items like picture frames and wooden boxes that are lining your shelves. 

Before you paint, make sure your furniture is nice and clean (a vinegar cleaning solution does the trick) and free of dust. If your item has a dark finish already, you’ll want to use a primer, so there is no bleed through. If spray painting wood, sanding it down first will help the paint stick. Lastly, don’t forget to be patient. You’ll want to do a light coat, let it dry, and then repeat.

Browse Buy Nothing Groups on Facebook and Free Items on OfferUp

“One man’s junk is another man’s treasure,” was never as true as it is here! Facebook has groups you can join where people are not looking to buy, but rather, recycle or upcycle their items. Similarly, the website and phone app OfferUp has a “free” section where you can get tons of great items -- anything from mirrors to couches -- for free if you’re willing to go pick it up from the owner.

Revamp Your Couches and Chairs with Slipcovers

Getting a new couch or accent chair is a pricey investment, but refreshing the look with a slipcover is an affordable solution! Slipcovers are easy to take on and off -- great for those who tend to have spills on their couches and chairs -- and come in so many colors and textures!

Do A Room Swap

It may not be sweat-free, but changing up the rooms in your home is a free way to refresh your space. Depending on your space, are there two rooms you could do a complete swap with? Change your office into your TV room? Or, switch the direction of your bed and dresser in your master bedroom. You’d be surprised how moving furniture will give you an entirely new feel to an entirely familiar space!
