Home Decor DIY On a Budget
One of the big challenges that we all face when considering a home decor DIY makeover is the cost. That's why in this week's blog I am giving you five tips for how to give your home a makeover without giving your wallet a work over.
GO FOSSICKING FOR TWIG TREASURE
Fresh Flowers are wonderful to boost the spirits but sometimes the season or the household budget just doesn't allow for it. That's when you can get imaginative with some backyard tree branches or bush walk treasures to modernise your home decor.
RECYCLE, REUSE, REPURPOSE
I'm such a fan of finding new uses for items that may have been in our homes for years. Who says that wire egg baskets can't become the new chic home for some coffee table books? Take a fresh look around your home, particularly in the back closet, and think about how you could repurpose something old and give it a new lease of life.
GO HOME SHOPPING
Think of your home as a home decor store full of items that you can move around to give a space a whole new feel without spending a cent. Home decor accessories are the obvious candidates - cushions, throws, rugs, wall art, mirrors, ornaments. But bookcases, side tables, and occasional chairs can also be thrown into the mix. Then there are all those items that you may not have thought of as home decor items like table runners, beautiful dresses, hats, and beads. The possibilities are endless!
KEEP AN EYE OUT FOR FREE STUFF
One person's trash is another person's treasure as they say and Facebook marketplace is an absolute treasure trove of free home decor stuff. Just search for 'free stuff near me' and see if you can see anything that could be repurposed to star in your affordable home makeover mission. We all love the thrill of a great bargain.
TAKING THE STING OUT OF FRAMING
Oftentimes, the most expensive part of your wall art prints can be the frame. Don't let that hold you back. Take a trip to Spotlight and pick up a cheap one or go home decor thrifting. There are always framed prints in these stores that can be upcycled and welcomed into your home decor.
