Embrace your inner minimalist, turn a special card into art or display a collection in an unexpected way.
While we’d all love to have the time and cash to make our remodeling dreams come true, sometimes it’s just not the season for a total overhaul. If that describes your situation, that’s all right — you can make plenty of small changes to update a room without a major remodel. Here is one of my of my personal favorites that involves using or repurposing items you already have at home.
Push the envelope. Greeting cards can lend so much charm to a room. They are typically beautifully printed and tend to be standard sizes, so you can use less expensive off-the-shelf frames.
Buy a card that strikes your fancy — or use one you’ve saved — and elevate its status by displaying it. If it contains a sentiment you’d like to be able to read when the mood strikes, you could display the card on a clipboard instead of inside a frame.
