If we could redo our rooms on a whim, we totally would every other month. The limiting factor? The budget! Lucky for us, there are 7 super-cinchy ways to make little switches that make a big difference. And you can do it all for under $20. Phew!
Change the knobs on your dresser
Head to a thrift store or a homegoods store and look for unique knobs
and drawer pulls. All you’ll need to make the swap is a screw driver.
Make your best jewelry a center
A simple wood or gilt frame and a piece of wire mesh gives you a great
place for glittery earrings.
Paint your nightstand
Have a simple wood nightstand by your bed? Pick up a can of spray paint
(we’re loving metallics this winter), take it outside and give it a good coat
or two, then dry.
Wrap a lamp
Snag some of Mom’s holiday paper and a container of Scotch tape. Cut
the paper down so it will neatly fit inside the lampshade, use the tape to hold
it in place and voila! Insta-color and pattern. Just make sure the bulb does
not touch paper!
Braid a rug
Buy some fat quarters from a fabric store in complimentary shades and
patterns. Cut them into long strips a few inches wide, then start braiding the
strips together, adding in a new one when you get to the end, until they are
all braided. Then, coil the braid around itself, forming a circular rug. Use a
needle and thread to stitch the coils together.
Tie-dye your bedding
Hunt around for inexpensive pillow shams and a duvet cover, then grab a
tie-dye kit and go to town.
Head to the room scent section of your local grocery store and pick one
that catches your eye. It could be a plug-in or an oil diffuser. Whichever you
pick, know it’s an easy way to change the mood.
