Easy Decorating Tips for Fall

It’s that time of the year when the leaves begin to transform and the nights get cooler. Bring the festive atmosphere and bright colors of the season into your home. Decorating for fall doesn’t have to be impossible or expensive. With quick and crafty ideas, fall can be brought indoors at little to no cost. 

Gourds and Pumpkins Galore 

Find a few dried out gourds to add a pop of color. The more varied the sizes, the more interesting the piece. Use a simple latex paint or spray glitter for some added color. You can use painter’s tape to make sharp lines. If you want a more textured look, try using spray adhesive and dip them in loose glitter. Place dry, decorative gourds in a large bowl and you’ll have an instant centerpiece.

Where to Save and Where to Splurge on Your Home Remodel

A beautiful home creates a welcoming environment for friends and family. The trick is to make your home look like a million bucks without spending a fortune. Check out these tips to know where to splurge and where to save when you remodel.

Paint is where you’ll get the biggest bang for your buck. You can significantly change the atmosphere of any room just by repainting the walls. 

-Save: If your original walls are light, choose a low- to mid-grade paint rather than the pricier version. You’ll get just as much coverage with the economical option.

-Splurge: If your base color is dark, you’ll actually save money with pricier paint versus multiple coats of cheaper paint. If you’re still looking to pinch a few pennies, have your primer tinted to match your final coat to extend the paint life and coverage.
