One of the quickest, thriftiest impacts you can have is to dress your upholstery or a bed, which might be looking tired after a long winter, with some new pillows. It's funny that it was exactly this time last year (cold, gray, with spring so close yet so far) that I wrote this post about why your sofa needs pillows, and called new pillows an easy-as-pie update and an affordable treat. Amen!
To help you get started, Etsy seller Kassapanola is generously offering a discount for my readers. Enter coupon code LOFTBLOG for a 10% discount. She's got lots of goodies in her store to brighten your end-of-winter days right now. Here are some I would happily snag for my own place!
I also received a special package from Valspar the other day. Have you taken advantage of the free sample program they have going on right now? Well, it is awesome, and I highly recommend you check it out. Now who doesn't love getting free things, and who doesn't love getting a beautiful package in the mail? Seriously. The packaging made me at least as happy as the actual paint and $5 off coupon inside.
