We’re 5 months into living in our new house. Everything is unpacked and it’s feeling more like home every day. However, we’re still missing some personality in most of the rooms. I’ve been waiting to hang pictures and add decor items until after we’ve painted the walls. Well, we’re nearing that point so I’ve been having fun looking for inspiration on Pinterest!
BUT… decorating a home isn’t always easy or cheap. In fact, making a house feel more like home with decor items can be downright expensive! So, I’ve been looking for really simple and budget friendly ways to decorate. There are some crazy creative people out there that have turned everyday dollar store items into near works of art.
From practical to pretty, I’ve rounded up my favourite Dollar Store DIY’s that Will Make Your Home Look Fantastic.
