Whenever people ask me what to do to improve their rooms or their house, there are three simple tips that I always point out: 1) de-clutter and simplify (it’s the most difficult because it’s hard to let go of things), 2) brighten your space with a fresh coat of paint (again keep it simple and neutral), and 3) add a splash of color through accessories like framed prints, throw pillows, and potted plants (it’s adding color minus the long-term commitment).
A few weeks back, df reader Ina shared her stockroom makeover which proves how cleaning and de-cluttering alone can make a big difference to a room. Today, another df reader, Weng Mojica, shares a couple of her home improvement projects with us—adding color to her bare staircase with a pair of P499 canvas prints on a picture rail (top) and refurbishing an old piano from her parents (below).
Unfortunately, no one knows how to play the piano in her family including herself. “Only one sibling plays the piano so it is pretty much just a piece of furniture in our old house,” Weng said. “Now, I’m having informal piano lessons from an officemate during our lunch breaks. I hope to teach my daughter the Chopsticks soon.”
Good luck on the piano lessons, Weng! Thanks for sharing -ardel
