So you want to decorate. Liven up your home with a new few things. The thing is, the piggy bank is pretty empty. But that doesn’t have to stop you. There are plenty of ways to decorate on a budget, especially if you know where to shop.
Here are 5 places to shop when you’re decorating on a budget:
Dollar store decor is definitely cheap, price and quality wise, in most cases. But, dollar stores always seem to have a nice selection of candles, candle holders, vases, wall art and more. Not only do they have “pre-made” decor items, they provide a great selection of craft supplies so you can create your own unique decor. As another example, I recently purchased two simple wooden picture frames that I intend on using for framing some nice papers I own to add some colour to the walls.
Thrift stores can be amazing places to go decor shopping. They often carry furniture, paintings, accessories, vintage fabric and more. If you find a piece of furniture you like, but it’s a little on the worn side, you can always refinish, re-paint, or reupholster it. Old paintings and mirrors can be re-framed, or frames can be used for new pieces of art. Finally, clean, polish or spray paint the neat accessories you find.
Similar to thrift stores, garage sales can be a treasure chest full of cheap home decor items. While many items might need a little bit of TLC, you may find some beautiful items for sale simply because the sellers have changed their tastes.
Kijiji, Craigslist and Buy & Sell sites
If you’re on the hunt for some new-to-you furniture, I think Kijiji, Craigslist and Facebook Buy & Sell sites are a great place to look. We recently were on the hunt for a new couch and love seat. I had been scouring the flyers a good sale, but nothing jumped out at me. It wasn’t until a leather couch set appeared on a local Facebook group that I got excited. We ended up getting a great deal because we opted to purchase something gently used.
Possibly the most expensive option on this list, Homesense is a great place to look for brand new lamps, pillows, bedding, baskets, dishes, towels, bathroom accessories and more at marked-down prices.
