I have some tips on redecorating when you’re broke. I make small changes and switch decor from room to room.
It’s even easier than digging around in your stuff for searching for different decor.
I guess this is also called shopping the house. Except I just switch things from room to room.
Here are some of my redecorating tips:
Decorating Tip: Switch paintings from one room to another
I moved one painted canvas from my dining room wall and switched it with one in my bedroom over the weekend.
This is a good way to change things up without spending money. And it satisfies my need to redecorate.
If your overall decorating theme is the same throughout your home, this makes it very easy to change things up.
Decorating Tip: Move lamps from one room to another:
This led to switching lamps as well. I brought in my little red lamp. I’ve had this lamp for ages. When I purchased it the base was beige. I painted it my signature red.
Decorating Tip: Change Dishes On Display
Then I switched up some of the dishes in my blue cupboard. I always leave the white dishes I use every day in place, but change what I call “the accent dishes.”
This is a quick and easy change, but gives you a slightly different look.
I just removed the polka dotted dishes and brought in what I call my cottage dishes.
Decorating Tip: Change up shelf display
Last week I switched up decor on the wall shelves in my kitchen. I always keep some elements, such as food, in place.
This is one place Ivy doesn’t get into, so I’m fairly optimistic that my changes will stay in place!
Here I didn’t move anything. I just put the drinking glasses that were already there inside this vintage box. I like the texture.
Decorating Tip: Add to what’s already there
This is even easier. I just added the neutral bead strand to the poetry books on the small table next to the living room chair.
It gives you a different look without taking anything away.
Decorating Tip: Move decor around:
I had this gold pitcher somewhere else in the living room but changed things. The bright color and the faux lamb’s ear is still appealing to me, so I simply moved it to another table.
You saw this change on my coffee table yesterday. What you didn’t see was Ivy checking things out.
So far she has not decided to redecorate further by dragging things off. Maybe she likes it this way.
Often little changes satisfies my need to redecorate.
The best part is that I don’t have to spend any money. And I didn’t even have to dig around in the closet to find anything!
I’m always encouraged to discover ways to decorate on the cheap.
