My friend, Tammy, uses polka dots so well. She makes them look neutral, cute, and pretty all at the same time!

One day, digging for something in the “linens trunk,” I saw a pretty fuzzy polka dot blanket and a light bulb went off!

Just earlier that day, we were putting some items away and I found a teal pillow we had used in our guest room before it was Kuy’s big boy room.

I had the perfect solution…all it took was some safety pins! (I still haven’t learned how to sew!)

I folded it over the pillow and ta-da!

I’m telling you, it’s really possible to use things you have to freshen up around the house.

You just have to notice. I’m not implying you become a hoarder but notice things in a different way. I am constantly changing things from room to room (probably causing my husband much turmoil as he already loses his keys everyday so moving the bowl to put them in doesn’t really help). BUT, all that said, just moving a lantern from the fireplace to the dining room table, made a new centerpiece without going to buy something for spring.

What can you use around the house? What can you easily change around creating something new in another room?
