For those of us who have the desire to change the way our home looks, but don't have a winning lottery to do so, here are a few things you can do to decorate on a budget:
Check out your local thrift stores, flea markets, and yard sales! Get a great piece of furniture that might cost you a couple hundred brand new, and make it yours for just a few bucks.
Ask family and friends for unused furniture! Chances are high someone you know has something in their basement they don't even know is down there anymore. Take it off their hands and in your home!
You might be surprised to find that you already own a fantastic piece of furniture that just needs a little TLC. Some paint and new hardware can make a huge change without much of a dent! My tip on spending less on paint? Buy a sample size bucket instead of a gallon especially for small pieces.
Don't want to buy expensive shelving? DIY! Wood and stain are much cheaper than pre-made store bought.
Be creative! Take the time to search and find the right pieces for the right price or see if you can make it yourself! You may be surprised at how much you can do with a tight budget.
