As you may know, I am a big proponent of “using what you have.” That’s why my family ate a spinach-asparagus-rice-and-cheddar casserole for dinner last night. True. It wasn’t as bad as it sounds. Ok, it was. I was too tired to go grocery shopping. But shopping around your house for items to use in a makeover instead of spending extra cash at a store? That’s a recipe for success!
So check out these room redos that made magic out of a little refreshing and rearranging instead of a total renovation.

And resident staging expert Robin from Madison Modern Home de-brownified this monotone living room with fresh paint and a lil’ furniture swapping.

And that spooky hovering puppet is gone too, so double bonus!
