How can you have a beautifully decorated home without a lot of money? It is possible to create a lovely home on a small budget. In this video I’ll tell you how I did just that! My method might seem unusual – and it’s certainly not minimalistic.
I’ve lived my entire life on a small income – we are blessed but certainly not affluent! 🙂 For example, I’ve never purchased one piece of large furniture. Everything we have once belonged to our parents or grandparents. Our living room set is probably 25 years old. I don’t love it, so I chose pillows, rugs, lamps and other accessories that are so perky nobody notices the couch! It’s all about perspective!
Here are the three main tips I shared in the video:
- Purchase home decor accents when you see a bargain or sale on something you love, even if you don’t have a spot for it right away. If you love it, you’ll find a way to use it!
- Ask for home decor (or gift cards to home decor stores) for Christmas or your birthday.
- Draw the attention away from things you can’t afford to replace (old couches, etc.) by incorporating cozy and personal accents.
