Home decorating isn’t my forte. I think it’s because I’m more logical than artistic. Still, I’m always looking for ways to make my home more beautiful and homey. And of course, anything I do has to involve little money.
So I went to flickr to look for inspiration. Here’s what I found.
Fruit in a decorative bowl. Simple, cheap, appetizing. This would look wonderful on a table or counter.
Fresh cut flowers in a simple jar. You don’t even have to buy a fancy vase, though vases aren’t hard to come by at Goodwill. A small jar of flowers would look great on a bookshelf.
Frame your kids’ art and make a nice arrangement on the wall. You don’t need expensive frames. I love this idea, as it shows the kids that they’re appreciated.
I love throw pillows! They make a living room look so inviting and cozy. A long time ago, a friend of mine gave me a very frugal throw pillow tip. Buy cheap throw pillows at garage sales, even if you don’t like them. You can cheaply re-cover them with fabric you find on clearance to make them look any way you like.
If you keep your eyes open, you can find lots of cheap ways to decorate your home. And by using things you already have around the house or things you pick up at a bargain, your home decor will be unique and inviting.
