We‘re about to move to a new home, and I’m already thinking about how I want to decorate the new place! If you are looking for inspiration or ideas, then you’ve come to the right place! Decorating your home on a budget is so easy! These tips will help you put together the perfect farmhouse-style home without spending thousands of dollars or hiring Joanna Gaines herself!
If you are looking to save money and redecorate your home, one of the best ways you can do that is by repurposing something that you already have at home! This could be something small like a vase or something as large as your coffee table. The key to the farmhouse look could be as simple as a coat of paint or a little repurposing away from being the perfect piece for your home!
If you aren’t very crafty or don’t want to spend a fortune on crafting supplies, I encourage you to dig through dollar stores and clearance bins. You may not find furniture pieces this way, but you are mainly looking for accent pieces. You can find signs, or even crafting supplies that you can use to make your farmhouse home on a budget! I’ve discovered canvases from The Dollar Tree, and clearance farmhouse decor from Michael’s by just waiting and looking. Michael’s is always offering coupons too, so definitely make sure to grab a few to stick to your budget!
If you head to a yard sale or find the perfect piece, but it’s the wrong color, don’t completely disregard it! You would be shocked how changing even the color of paint on the walls can make a room look! Do a little research and find some paint shades that would fit with the farmhouse look you’re going for and start there! Sometimes repainting the living room can do just the trick! I can’t tell you how many times I’ve found the perfect piece and just needed a little bit of paint from Home Depot!
Usually, I am a fan of shopping online for supplies, but if you’re really on a budget, you aren’t going to find those quality pieces online for a bargain. There are some accent pieces or custom design pieces that you can get from either Amazon orEtsy, but your best finds are going to be in the store. By the time you pay for shipping and the cost of getting it new, you could have saved that money and bought something comparable at Home Goods or Hobby Lobby!
If you are looking for a free option, this is the best way to go! Find a friend who is also looking to update their home and swap items! You may be able to give a vase they were going to send to Goodwill new life, or you can get rid of your old table for something new to you!
You don’t need a professional designer to give your home the farmhouse look it needs! If you keep these tips handy, you’ll be able to decorate your home on a budget, and maybe even have some money leftover!
