Spray Paint your Bar Stools. Add a pop of color and make things seem brand new by spray painting your barstools. Go bold or neutral, it doesn't matter. Either way a fresh coat of paint will freshen things up! Make sure you take the time to clean and sand and then clean them again. A can of primer goes a long way. Do it right and you won't have to do it again for a while.

If you are feeling extra adventurous, try something like these gold dipped stools! I think these would be amazing all white with gold-dipped legs!

Update your hardware. Simply add some pretty knobs and pulls for an instant facelift. If you have cupboards and don't have hardware, all you need is a power drill and a little determination. Get help and measure well. You don't want crooked knobs. :) I really love these crystal cupboard pulls. So fancy!

Add a fun rug. An inexpensive rug can do wonders for your kitchen. And if you don't spend too much you can switch it out every once in a while. Some of my favorite kitchen rug options are: blue and white chevron rug, sea grass rug, or add some color with a fun striped rug like this!

Just add pretty soaps and dish towels. Adding a pretty dish cloth or two (like this one or maybe these) can really make a difference. It's a great and inexpensive way to add color and pattern. Just make sure your husband doesn't use them to wipe the counters.

A pretty (and yummy smelling) bottle of soap just adds a little touch of luxury. Meyer Clean Day is some of my favorite. When it comes to kitchen soap, it's all about the packaging. Check out this adorable soap! This is a super simple solution to adding a little extra goodness to your kitchen.

  3. I have a problem keeping rugs in my kitchen and bathrooms clean. They are high traffic areas, plus we have two dogs who compete to lay on them. We don't have carpet in the house. We've bought them doggie beds, pillows, and even their own rugs, but just tear them up and they don't chew on anything else in the house! How can I keep the floors and rugs looking fresh and clean?

    1. One idea is to buy an indoor/outdoor rug and spray it off with the hose when it gets yucky. Also you can spray it with scotch guard when it's new!
