Jaci KennisonJaclyn Kennison is a freelance writer living and playing in the Black Hills of South Dakota. She owns and manages an art gallery and event venue between fits of shopping and redecorating.  

This time of year I find myself itching to redecorate. It may have something to do with spending more time indoors, or the feeling of change that comes with a new year. Putting holiday décor away for the season, I catch myself looking around, ready to shake up my design scheme and create a fresh feeling in my home.

Re-arranging furniture and plants is a great start, but often I am yearning for a more dramatic change. I want color on the walls. I want the whole feeling changed. I want a brand-new design.

Paint and wallpaper are a great way to make this change, but any time you purchase something new, you are putting greater demand on our resources, and therefore increasing your environmental footprint.

Happily, there is a great way to get around these issues—used fabric.
