Living on a budget can be tricky at times, especially when it comes to decorating or making changes in our living space. We have learned to be smart about making decorative changes and updates without spending a lot of cash. I really love the challenge that comes when I want to change something up and I know I have to figure it out with supplies we already have or knowing that I have to purchase supplies that aren't very expensive.
The smallest things can refresh a space, we just have to be willing to give them a try. Each room has tons of potential and we can always find news ways to bring things together.
5 WAYS TO DECORATE ON A BUDGET
1.) ADD SOME PAINT : This is my number one go to when decorating. I love spray paint because it can be used so easily to change things up and add new pieces to a space. If you have left over paint from painting a room or even craft paint, those are both perfect for adding paint to existing items. We added paint to these planters and our most recent project, our gallery wall.
2.) REARRANGE OLD ITEMS : It's easy to change things up just by moving them around or placing unique items together to make a statement piece. I've rearranged tons of different art pieces to create new spaces and each time I love the outcome and feel that the space as been refreshed.
3.) THINK OUTSIDE THE BOX : Often times we have supplies just laying around the house that we can use to create new and fun decorative pieces, we just need to think outside the box and get creative. I added this DIY pillow to our bedroom to add some color and created this vintage postcard mobile as a statement piece.
4.) SCAVENGE : For reals, don't be afraid to scavenge for off the wall items. Tyler built this table from wood that we found and we have also picked up pallets from places that were just throwing them out. You can find some of the best items from the side of the road.
5.) DIGITAL DOWNLOADS : This is an awesome way to add new encouraging art pieces to your home at a super low price. I love finding digital downloads because you can purchase them at a super low price while still adding something fun and new.
Decorating on a budget can definitely have some challenges, but it also provides a great opportunity for us to be creative and try new things. What are some ways you could change things up in your space? xo. Samantha
