Our home is where we spend most of our time, it’s where we invite people over to spend time with us, and it’s essentially a reflection of us. I don’t know about you, but if I’m a little scattered, my home seems to be too. And when I can take some time out to clean it up and put everything back where it belongs, I feel a little more clear-headed as well. But I don’t just want my home to be clean, I also want it to look nice.

We all want our homes to be beautiful and inviting, don’t we? However, we usually don’t have the money or the time to make them so. Upgrading your home, and making it the castle you always hoped it would be, isn’t as hard as it sounds. And you can make it look like you spent a great deal of time and money making it so, without having to tell anyone.

So what I’ve done to spark some inspiration for you, is to gather all of my favorite ideas from a variety of extremely talented people across the internet. Some of these may seem very feasible to you, while others may be for another time or another house. The very first idea is my favorite! I’ll be asking my husband to do it this weekend.

The internet is chock full of all kinds of wonderful ideas if you know how to search for them. Don’t be afraid to peruse around a little bit and find some great ideas that work for you. Let’s check out some of these nifty creations.
