Good morning friends.
I know this is a weird title and you’re probably wondering if I have lost my marbles but hear me out for a minute. And p.s. it’s not going to be a pretty post either but I think it’s an important one.
My name is Summer and I have a prop box. I’m not exactly sure what comes to mind when I say that but this is the best way I could come up with to describe it .
Basically, I have a bin full of home decor and accessories that I keep nearby to change out my decor. Not seasonal stuff that comes in and out of the attic but things I love and don’t have the room to display all at once.
Now I’m sure you’re asking what does this have to do with anything. Well, since you all know I’m usually on a pretty tight budget and I’m a home design blogger so sometimes that doesn’t go hand in hand. In order to keep my decor from feeling tired and boring I will replace items such as vases, garlands, feathers, fake flowers, fabric, etc around the house every few weeks. This satisfies my need for change as well as keeping my budget intact.
Wow, I think I need to refinish my hardwoods! I didn’t realize they were so bad…geez :)
I call it a prop box because I use a lot of my items for photographing my house but feel free to call it anything you like. I really suggest grabbing a plastic bin from Target and searching your house and attic for those items you really love that don’t see the light of day very often.
Make sure to keep it in an accessible place so you can get to it easily or the concept won’t work very well. Try pulling from your bin and switching some items in your house this week and see if it helps. And, you might as well use it as a time to purge those items that you don’t really love too right!?
I’d love to know how it goes!
Have a great week!
Here are a few more of my organization attempts!
