10 Simple diy Decorating Tips for $100 or Less!

  1. Copycat Decor – When you're flipping through magazines, cut out pictures of your favorite rooms and then duplicate the look for less! Garage sales, flea markets and consignment shops are a budget decorators dream!
  2. Rearrange – Remember how much fun it was to rearrange your bedroom when you were little? Have some fun and refresh a room by simply rearranging the furniture. It's FREE!
  3. Paint – A coat of paint is an inexpensive way to change the look of a room! Thanks to new software programs, most paint stores can take a photo of your room and show you how it will look in different colors…what fun!
  4. Pillows – Add new throw pillows to your sofa or bed for a cozy and welcoming addition. Try Homegoods, T.J. Maxx or Marshalls for great prices!
  5. Knobs & Pulls – Change your cabinet knobs and drawer pulls in your kitchen and bathroom for an instant update!
  6. Lamps – Add a lamp to your kitchen & bathroom counters for nice change from the harsh overhead lights. Every room looks better in lamp light!
  7. Candles – Fill your empty fireplace with pillar candles for a beautiful glow without the blazing heat! Even better, try the battery powered candles!
  8. Baskets & Trays Add a tray or small basket to your coffee table to collect remotes.
  9. Flowers – Pick fresh flowers from your yard to brighten any room…a fun activity for children! Don't forget about blooming branches or gorgeous greenery!
  10. Treasure Hunt – Dig through your cabinets and discover a great accessory waiting to be shown off. Do you have a beautiful silver pitcher that could be filled with flowers? How about some old books that you can stack on a table or in a window sill? Take a look, I'll bet there are some treasures in there!

I love that these tips don’t cost an arm and a leg. I get so weary of glossies telling us how to rejuvenate a room and the cost is equivalent to a year’s salary! No thank you!
