J is for Junk

No matter how nicely decorated your room is, if it's full of junk (more politely known as "clutter"), all you see is the mess. The first step in fixing up any room is to get rid of the extra stuff hanging around. I admit, this is one of my biggest issues...I have a habit of leaving piles of paperwork all over the house. If it's got a flat surface, you're pretty much guaranteed to find my stuff lying on it.

On the other side of this, one person's junk is another's treasure. Some of the nicest home accents turn out to be yard sale or Value Village finds, painted or re-covered to turn them into something great. A can of spray paint and a bit of imagination can turn almost any "junk" into something you can use in your decorating!

Have you turned any "junk" into something decorative?

LOL! I have giveaway stuff all over my house. Even I start thinking it looks like junk even though it's nice stuff.

I just got rid of yet another box of "treasures" - having visitors is the best motivator for decluttering!
