Before going out to a store to purchase new decorations for a home, The Winnipeg Free Press suggests that many treasures may be found in the attic and afford a room a new look for free.

This update can be possible with just a little paint, as one can take an old coffee table and refresh it with a completely different shade or cut a body-length mirror into stylish squares to hang on the wall.

When homeowners are rooting through the attic and trying to clean house, interior designer Wendy Russell tells the news source that they should "take a second look at it and ask yourself, What else can it be? Can I recreate this either with a coat of paint and it can be used in another room?"

Russell excels at transforming yesterday's antique into today's modern masterpiece. She specializes in creating upcycled items that have character - a $10 door turned coffee table, for example - so that a home can have a modern, yet dignified feel.

Distressed wood blinds can be ideal window treatments for a home which is looking for a rustic, yet clean appearance. These blinds are manufactured with cuts and nicks, so that they look weathered, but are still effective.
