Q.U.I.C.K.C.H.A.N.G.E -5 easy ways to update your bedroom

Spring is around the corner. Yes, I said it. It really is happening! Thinking of doing some spring-cleaning? Sometimes the best thing you can do for your house is let some fresh air in and let it breath. While doing your spring-cleaning, add these five items to your list in your bedroom and you'll feel like you have a new oasis.


1. Hang a DIY art piece above your bed. This could be a great quilt, a painted canvas, or a reproduction poster you found at Hobby Lobby. Go for a drastic change and you will feel like you have a new room. Even painting a canvas one solid color will add geometry and color to the room.

2. Paint your nightstands. Use a glossy finish for a sleek look or a bright color if you are feeling bold.

3. Pick up new pillows. Add textured and patterned pillows to your existing ones {or toss the existing ones} and it will make your bedding look new.

4. Throw a blanket at the bottom of the bed. Go for something light in color and weight for spring and summer.

5. Add a new rug. I'm the type of person who doesn't mind a rug on carpet, so either way, pick up something that is soft and fuzzy that your toes can sink into when you get out of bed. That is a great way to start the day.
