I don't know about you, but every spring I look around my home and everything looks drab and boring. Just as life is reborn outdoors, I have the urge to give new life to my indoors beyond a coat of paint. It would be simple if I had an unlimited budget and time, but I don't. I'm not a good bargain hunter either. However, I may have found a solution to my problem and for other Boston area homeowners who share my yearning or who are looking to dress up their home to put on the market and not break the bank.
I just received an email alert from "Groupon" different from the daily alerts I've been getting for a while. (http://www.groupon.com/boston/home-and-garden) I'm not getting paid to tell you this, but they have a new weekly alert that features home and garden deals from multiple vendors serving our metropolitan area. The window of opportunity to purchase the discount coupons lasts a week as oppose to a day.
This week's features included deep discounts on furniture, fabric (from a well known fabric house), pillows, wall prints and other home decor and living in Arlington MA, puts me in easy access to many of these vendors. If you're looking for some staging items to add sparkle to your home for the Sunday open house; maybe new toss pillows for the sofa or an new area rug for the entryway, you, too, might find what you need.
I will be checking out these alerts for some new items to perk up my fireplace mantle this spring. I might even find the perfect fabric at a price I can affordable for the new window treatments I want to make!
