Update Your Digs
Feeling a little bored with your surroundings at home is natural, but spending your paycheck at Anthropologie every month is obviously not an option. Instead, make small, affordable updates to your existing décor. Try repainting a dresser or a desk, hanging new DIYed curtains, or tossing a pair of new, brightly colored throw pillows on your sofa. I just repainted the drawers on my plain black Ikea work desk, and it instantly brightened up my living room.
