The Budget Decorator has ten of her best home decorating finds, all of them for less than $10 each! Anyone can afford to decorate their home with these home decorating tips. Paper Paper is one of the most versatile tools for use in budget home décor. Paper mache can be used to create display bowls. (see photo above) Contact paper also works great for lining your dresser drawers for an instant pop of color, in an unsuspecting place. Frame scrapbooking paper in your living rooms’ color scheme, and hang them above the window to draw the eye upwards, creating the look of a a taller ceiling. Use brown paper bags to create a faux concrete or leather look floor. Make coasters out of paper, its cheap and one of a kind. It is easy to find precut cork at any craft store, then simply trace the coaster shape onto the paper, cut out, decoupage the paper onto the cork, and let dry. Its as simple as that! Framed paper Fat Quarters Fat Quarters are quarter yard pieces of fabric sold singly, or in coordinated bunches. They can be used for a number of projects around the home, are inexpensive and a great way to introduce an accent color or pattern to the room. Use them to make a slipcover for an office chair. Throw pillow covers. Make a colorful dry erase board! All you have to do is frame your favorite piece of fabric in your color scheme, and hang on the wall. Then use a dry erase marker on the glass. It wipes off easily, blends in with your rooms style and color scheme, and is useful as well. Pillow covers from fabric Dollar Store Frames I love dollar store frames! You can generally find a selection of sizes, and basic, classy frames, that mix with just about any style. I very rarely buy frames any where else, because of how cheap and clean these look! You can easily make a gallery style picture wall under $10 for a look that will pull together a room! Ideas for framing on the cheap? Fabric or paper Calendar pages Printed computer art Colorful graphic food labels Pressed flowers and leaves Sentimental ticket stubs or programs Black and white candids of your family Green living room Graphic Poster Art This can be a bit trickier to find under $10, but it can be done! Try looking at places like IKEA, Michaels, or Hobby Lobby. IKEA has great graphics for very little price, in a multitude of sizes and styles. Michaels and Hobby Lobby generally have good prices on their prints, and they usually offer a 20% or even 40% off coupon weekly in the local add, or online. Quart of Paint A Quart of paint may seem small, but it goes a long way to freshen up your home. Paint the trim around your windows. Give your front door a splash of color that awakens your house from the curb! If you have glass paned cabinets, try painting the inside of them for a crisp look. Paint a key piece of furniture in a bold accent color to transform a room in an hour. Paint a “panel” behind a gallery of photos to set them off and make them more important in the room. Paint pops Stencil Brush and Craft Paints Stenciling can be used on far more than just walls. Use it in a child’s rooms to combat little changing minds. Flowers, Dinosaurs, or an ocean fantasy. Add just a touch of personality to any spot in the house with stenciled quotes. They are great above doorways, or scripture perhaps above a babies crib? How about developing a family signature stencil to add in every room of the home? Stencil sheets and towels with a monogram for a luxury look. Dear Lille made these awesome pillows with stencils and a sharpie! Sharpie pillows Glue Gun and Sticks This is probably one of the most essential tools of The Budget Decorator, and can be used in almost every decorating project. Use for temporary furniture repairs Make Christmas ornaments Add ribbon to a lampshade Hem curtains We have even used a glue gun to make a dollar tree candle holder look like one out of a CB2 magazine. Spin hurricane Patterned Contact Paper Patterned Contact paper can be great for making a room look completely different, without the cost or hassle of painting or the permanency of wall paper. This is a great option for renters, as most are not allowed to paint. Cover an old dresser or desk top then top with glass to bring it back to life. Cut into strips and use it as removable wall border Use patterned contact paper to line the back part of a book case. Add a little flair to the dull matte black finish. Cut out shapes from bold or primary contact paper and use to decorate a child’s bathroom.
