Top 3 Thrifty Redecorating Tips That You Can Use in Your Home Too
1. Re-use what you have
Even if you have to clean it, paint it or re-purpose it. Move it to another room. Or just to another space. You'll be amazed what you can find if you “shop” your own house!
In our entryway, we recently repainted the simple wooden bench black to add a touch of drama to the small space.
2. Look high and low
If you can't find what you're looking for in your local or national furniture store, try looking at thrift stores or garage sales. This bar cart got a good cleaning and a bit of paint (on the shelves) after we bought it for only $10 at the thrift store!
You can DIY so much. Spray paint is an easy, but oh-so-versatile tool to wield. Google whatever project you want to work on and you will find a plethora of tutorials.
We DIY'd the faux board and batten both at our old house and this one, adding architectural interest to a large room. If we'd hired out to add trim and molding, it would have cost us five times as much!
So there ya go! 3 simple tips to redo a space on the cheap – reuse what you have, look for bargains and thrifted items or DIY your own pieces.
