Read all about how to lighten and brighten your room on a budget after the jump! Also, if you'd like to guest post or have a project featured, drop me a line--I'd love to hear from you.
First don't be afraid to get rid of things....look around your room and decide what are your favorite pieces? Ask yourself does it have good bones? If it it's not a favorite then sell it! You can use the money to pick up items that you will love more. I sold most of my dark furniture on Craigslist and turned around and purchased the pieces I really wanted most from Craigslist, yard sales, and Goodwill.
TIP: Clear out unneeded clutter. Keep the pieces you love and group collections together.
TIP: I can't say enough about mirrors, really. If you place them strategically they can make a room look larger and bounce light around the room making it brighter.
TIP: Don't be afraid to bring the outdoors in with garden elements.
