Seven Of The Best No Cost Decorating Tips
So maybe you’re a bit tired of how your living room looks, but there just isn’t money in the budget right now to buy anything. You need to come up with no cost decorating ideas that won’t touch your checkbook
You can get a whole new look to enliven your space. And it won’t cost you a dime. I promise.
Here are some things you can do:
1. Rearrange the furniture
2. Clean up the clutter
3. Shop your home
I tend to “shop my closets” since I don’t have a garage or attic. I purged a lot of things yesterday to my youngest daughter. But I will still be “shopping my closets.”
My two bedroom closets are where I store all of my decor and seasonal decorations. Along with all my clothing, etc.
4. Repurpose what you already have
You can do lots of things with an old chippy window frame. Such as the photo of the coffee bar below.
Use it to clip messages and lists to with clothes pins. Add old vintage photos to the frame.
I love the points made here about the elements you should have on your coffee table to balance out the look.
6. Completely switch out your bed linens
Remember to mix prints and colors. It doesn’t have to match!
I have often ended up with my favorite ideas by mixing prints and colors. Usually I end up doing this because I don’t have anything else. But I end up loving it!
I hope you found some inspiring ideas in these seven ways to give your home a whole new look for zero dollars.
Hello Brenda: Just started following your blog and I love it. My home is a whopping 900 sq ft. Much larger than yours, but small compaired to what we came from. I have rearrange-itis. I clean, I rearrange. Seasons change, the house changes. It's fun!!
Nice ideas Brenda..love the change in that hutch!
I love to shop the house!
Fantastic ideas! As time goes by and we don't need to buy much, these are my favorite tips. 🙂
I pinned the graphic of the different ways to lay furniture in the living room as I haven't made up my mind for mine yet!
So glad you posted this, I so needed a fresh view on changing up my decor! thank you so much for posting. Awesome ideas, Hugs, Lynn
Brenda, you had me no cost! 😉
Goodness, those are some wonderful ideas! Thanks for sharing!
I am using all of those tips already. I just move furniture from room to room, really think before buying tchotchkes (and nowadays I tend to put them back on the store shelf) and am giving away a lot of "stuff".
My latest purge is decorating books. I love them, but just don't have space for all so I am going through those I haven't looked at in years. If I decided to donate a book, I snap a photo of ideas I like and then it goes on the "to go" pile. I recently gave 2 dozen hardbound books to a local antique shop.
Love all these tips Brenda and I am pinning away!
These are all great ideas Brenda, thanks for sharing.
I shopped my closets for things to use in my fall centerpiece. It was amazing what I found and didn't spend a dime. Great ideas. xo Laura
I wish I could change my furniture a bit, but the way it is now is really the only way it would be functional.
Nonetheless, I agree with all these great ideas!
Love these ideas Brenda! I recently changed around my living room and it does make everything seem fresh again. Hope you have a nice weekend!
i love your tips and so practical. i think people immediately assume that they have to buy new when wanting to redecorate. happy weekend!
