Spring Spruce Up

“Despite the forecast, live like it’s spring.” – Lily Pulitzer

It was a bit chilly last week in the Dallas area! I even wore a vest with a fur hood one day…and it’s April! Can you believe that? But this weekend turned out to have perfect spring weather which inspired me to spruce up my apartment a bit!

I stay pretty busy so it can be hard to find time for crafty projects.  With that said, I’m happy to announce that my living room recently got a makeover and today I cleaned the rest of that area and it all feels new! I’ve lived in the same apartment for a little over three years now and while I definitely get in the occasional moods to move, I know that I can’t give up the price or location I have. So, an easy fix when those moods come around, is to add a few new things and move the other stuff around!

Enhancing my wall collage was the main project I decided to focus on this time! I took down all the photos I had and laid them on my floor. It was a mess at first! But, by searching Pinterest,  making a trip to Homegoods and World Market, and receiving advice from my friends via text, I came up with the perfect new layout!

Check out the before and after below!

The top is before and the bottom is after! Such an improvement!

Changing out the pictures in the frames is another good step to take! Also, I had already incorporated new furniture which stepped up the look a lot!
