Country-Fresh Living Room

Slipcover hand-me-down chairs and ottomans in the same fabric for a cohesive look.

When the slipcovers get dirty, just toss them in the wash. Other wallet friendly ideas include using washable flat paint on walls for easy wiping, and opting for bare floors throughout. Reinvent vintage finds like homeowner Ingrid Oomen did here — she had the antique post lamp rewired into a pendant light.
