Turn Your Tax Refund Into A Newly Decorated Apartment

Did you know the average American’s tax refund check in 2014 totaled $3,034? How will you spend your tax refund this year?

You could take a trip, pay off those credit cards, or redecorate your apartment. We agree – redecorating your apartment makes the most sense and there is enough money within the tax refund to update every room.

We shopped the most popular home decor websites and found some amazing deals.  We’ve incorporated today’s hottest color  – warm gray – into the scheme of the makeover. Shades of gray work well in modern, contemporary and transitional styled rooms. You will want to add your favorite accent color to fit your own personal taste.

Here’s how we spent every last cent of a $3034 tax refund…
