What Do You Really Need

When you start looking around the room, decide what you really need to update? Sometimes, things in the room can be kept, it just needs a little paint or reupholstery, or a new slipcover if you are not able to do the fabric work yourself. Take note of what you want to replace and what you want to update before you get started.

Often, the bed is one of the things that need to be updated.
