Decorating your home is undeniably expensive and most people simply don’t have the funds to do so. However, this doesn’t mean it is impossible to have a beautiful home and there are many ways to furnish and decorate that doesn’t cost a fortune.
The truth is, all it takes is a bit of DIY elbow grease, research and experimentation in order to create any style that is desired. We will look at a few DIY home decor ideas that just about anyone can do.
Buying coffee tables or side tables can become very expensive, very quickly. However, you can do it yourself by making small tables that can probably be made from items that are already lying around the home.
For example, if there are two pairs of shuttered windows lying around, then these can be nailed together to create a simple but beautiful table. Once they have been boxed up, then a slab of glass or wood can be placed on top and attached with glue, nails or screws. The shutters can be painted in any color or even left as is, to create a rustic look. This will create the perfect side table to store one’s keys, a vase of flowers, or a home telephone.
Another way to completely change the look of a room without spending much money is to add colorful and textured throw cushions to the couch. Even though the couch may already have cushions, these can be jazzed up by using colorful cushion covers.
It is best to use two pairs of contrasting cushions, where one pair is a solid color and the other has a colorful pattern or design. Over-sized pillows can also be added since these will create a feel and look of luxury while adding comfort.
If extra storage space is needed in the bedroom, then suitcase tables can be made. This is actually a vintage style and a clever way to use old suitcases. All that is needed for this project are four table legs, particle board, screws and a suitcase.
Then, simply screw the particle board to the top of the four table legs so that is looks like a stool and lay the suitcase on top and attach. The result is a suitcase table that can be placed at the foot of the bed that can store clothes, jewelry or even shoes.
You can create print-out art instead of spending hundreds of dollars on expensive paintings and other art pieces. Simply source a high quality digital painting or artwork online and print on an HD printer. Alternatively, there are many websites that will print the digital photo onto a large poster.
Once this has been received, a simple frame can be made with extra pieces of wood or even crown moldings. This is a very cheap and creative way to get beautiful art without spending a lot of money.
These cheap DIY home decor ideas will certainly help to create a beautiful home. Be sure to put them into action and enjoy the immense savings.
