Recovering From a Divorce? Re-decorate the House With Home Depot Discount Coupons

Jul 24, 2008
If you've just gotten divorced, you're probably still reeling after the fact. It's an emotional roller coaster like no other, and it'll take a while to get over it. Your only consolation is you got the house and a considerable settlement. Or, is it?

Misty Water-colored Memories

Consider the house. You've lived there as a couple for many years, and now you're no more. Imagine all the memories, both good and bad, that still linger within its maze of rooms and hallways. It's enough to shake even the most unsentimental person to the core.

Indeed, do you really want to go through all that? Well, short of selling the place, you can always make modifications to make the house truly your own and hopefully erase all that it has once stood for. So why not renovate the house? Not only will you be making improvements, you'll also have a project to keep your mind off the divorce's aftermath. Don't even worry about the costs. With your settlement and Home Depot discount coupons, you can fund your project very comfortably indeed.

A New Day Has Come

The first thing you need to do before you use those Home Depot discount coupons on renovations is to figure out exactly what you want done and how you want it done. The easiest way to do this is to hire an interior decorator, but if you want to make a project out of this, it's best to do it all yourself and just go for help if you run into a little snag.

Once you've decided that you wanted to re-do your kitchen ala The Naked Chef's, or redecorate your bedroom like a Moulin Rouge buodoir, you can then go shopping. Start with the basics. Get new carpets fitted to the floors, or re-paint or re-wallpaper your walls. Do this with all the rooms in your house, or just the ones you want to change. Get your materials cheap with Home Depot discount coupons, and you can go all out on quality.

Now comes the fun part. You can then start shopping for new furniture, appliances, and decors to accentuate your newly painted and carpeted rooms. This is your chance to really turn the house around and make it truly your sanctuary. This is your chance to really let your personality shine, something that might have been hampered when you were still married. The best thing about it is you don't even have to worry about overspending. With Home Depot discount coupons, you can splurge on all the trappings you so desire.

Show If Off

Once your home improvement project is done, it's time to show if off. After all, there's no better way to get over a broken heart and a nasty divorce than by socializing. And there's no better way to socialize that to show off your new house and the new you.

Indeed, give your friends and family the grand tour. Serve refreshments if you're so inclined. None of them will be the wiser that you used Home Depot discount coupons.
