Low-Budget Projects Can Have a Big Impact!

Redecorating doesn’t have to cost a fortune or take a lot of time. Small changes can have a dramatic effect. And some of these suggestions are free!

1. Re-cover pillows – Or make new ones. Choose a vibrant color or pattern and look for sales on designer fabrics to get a high-end look for a budget price.

2. Change out hardware – Pulls and knobs can get expensive, so pick a small item with maybe just one or two knobs and give it a whole new look.

3. Clear out clutter – Gather up the sort of random things you’ve accumulated. If you find that you have a lot of one type of thing, grouping them all together on a shelf transforms the items into a display, whereas having them spread out over different locations just makes things look messy. You can use the same idea if you find that you have a lot of different things that share something in commons, such as they’re all shades of blue or they’re all of a similar texture. Whatever doesn’t fit, donate.

4. Make decorative trays – Gather up a few pretty things — say candles, a small vase, a little box, use your imagination — and place them atop a mirror or picture frame. Don’t have any on hand that you can repurpose? Take a cookie sheet and wrap it in fabric. No one will ever know!

5. Paint a piece of furniture – Use inexpensive spray paint to quickly and easily add new life to an old table, chest of drawers or chairs. Speaking of furniture …

6. Rearrange the furniture – Moving things around can change the flow, feel and look of a room. Before you start, test the new layout on paper or on an online room planner. Keep in mind basic rules such as allowing 24 inches for traffic routes, and be sure to account for the space needed to swing open doors. Get more tips on arranging furniture here.

7. Dress up light switches – You can find decorative switch plates for $10 or under, but your best bet probably is to re-finish them. You can cover one with fabric or wall paper. You can paint it in a contrasting color or in a metallic finish. Or you can hot glue on decorations.
