As a stay-at-home mom, you're expected to carry the brunt of the cleaning duties. But you're expected to do that on top of the Baby ‘n' Me classes, school pickups and drop offs, and endless errands. Here are 7 ways that you can effortlessly redecorate your home in time for the arrival of spring.
One very easy way to bring new life into your home is to change the throw pillows on your couches and beds. The great thing about this decorating technique is that you don't have to spend a lot of money to get beautiful pillows. A trip to your local big box store could be just the thing to freshen up your living room or bedroom.
If you don't want to spend any money during your decorating spree, you can simply rearrange your furniture to give any room in your home a brand new look.
As a stay-at-home mom, you probably cherish the time that you actually get to sleep. Changing your bedding can be another effortless way to bring new life into your bedroom without spending an inordinate amount of money. Besides, you'll never have a better night's sleep than your first night under a brand new comforter.

With spring comes warmer weather. Warmer weather brings with it more opportunities to entertain. Buying durable outdoor wicker dining furniture can be just the thing to brighten up your backyard during your child's birthday party or your annual 4th of July barbecue.
Bringing plant life into your living room can give it a fresh vibe that will be noticeable to visitors. Try pairing large, statement making leaves with fun, decorative vases. If you want the plants to live on for months at a time, simply trim the bottom of the stems and change the water.
Just because you're a mom doesn't mean you have to shy away from color. If you're not one to wear bright yellow ensembles, simply incorporate more color into your home decor. Use unique objects, bright coffee table books and beautiful vases to brighten up a table in your living room.
Nothing makes a house more inviting than amazing smells. Candles are a good way to have your home smelling good, but swap them out once in a while for more citrusy scents or fresh laundry-like aromas. Look online or in your local community for seasonal scents like honeysuckle jasmine or cinnamon.
