If you are like me and love to change up your decor pretty often, cost can really be quite important. Changing up your space doesn’t have to cost a fortune! Today I am going to share five of my very favorite budget decorating ideas. They don’t cost much, but no one will ever know because they are so nice and elegant.
Here’s number one on my budget friendly decorating list…
DIY DIY DECOR ITEMS
Instead of spending gobs of money on home decor items and accessories. Make them yourself!
This project for creating decorative orbs is one of my favorites. I saved so much money making my own instead of paying full price at the stores. They look fabulous and really make an impression when they are on display.
This DIY cake pedestal is also so fun to make and it adds so much interest to an ordinary cake plate. You can also use them for more than just displaying food. You can find everything you need at your local thrift shop and this project costs next to nothing!
You all know how much I adore pillows. To me, they can add so much to a room. You can go from Winter to Spring in less than a minute when you swap out a few pillows here and there. They can be super affordable when you purchase them from discount stores or on sale. Pillows can make a room feel cozy, fun, dramatic, polished and so beautiful!
I think one of my favorite things Bobby and I have done in our home was creating these open shelves in the breakfast nook. This type of shelving is super affordable and costs much less than expensive built-ins. It feels good to have items I love on display rather than in a cabinet or closet somewhere. They are decorative and useful and they make me so happy. Yes, shelving makes me happy!
See how we (and when I say “we” I mean Bobby) made them HERE.
Elevate Your Decor
Recently, I shared about using risers in decor. They add so much to tabletops, shelves, next to chairs and in your vignettes. The best part… you probably already have everything you need to create risers. I love using stacked books, plates, wooden rounds, small stools and stacked bowls to create interest and dimension with varying heights. Try it out… it is so simple!
Layer it On
I love using all sorts of things in my decor and I love using all sorts of things all at once! I don’t like my home to look busy, but adding a few layers really can make any room look beautiful, polished and very interesting. Be sure to check out these tips for adding layers to a room like a pro. They are helpful ideas that will help you to create a space that you love while using what you have!

To this, if you think about layering decor!

All of these ideas are very friendly to your change purse! I hope you will look with a discerning eye at the rooms in your home and incorporate some of these budget-friendly ideas!
