When you get bored with the look of a corner, a room (or your whole house!), it's easy to think that you have to make a lot of big changes or spend a ton of money to make any part of your home look fresh, new, and different. You don't. You just have to get creative with what you've already got. This weekend, try this decor trick in your home. Don't worry, it won't cost you a thing but a little time!

This Weekend's Assignment: Shop your space to update a drab room's look.

We've got the how-to full of tips on how to approach this decor trick:

Remember, as with all of our Weekend Projects, just do what you have the time and energy to do. And hey, if you don't feel like rearranging your knick knacks, choose one of our other weekend projects to get done.
