Home decor on a budget

I move into my home with very little, I have been blessed with hand-me-down furniture but am looking to make my home "mine". Any do-it-yourself ideas or best places on-line/in store for frugal home decor? Any tips will help, Thanks!

  • Paint is cheap. I've had great luck with the mistint sections, where normally expensive and high quality paint is sometimes 70 percent off!

  • Hobby Lobby has tons of stuff at good they usually have coupons in the paper and things are always on sale there. Oh and I agree with SunShineMoMM about Kirkland's, I love that store. Have fun. ;)

  • Goodwill, garage sales have cheap stuff, look on line for home decorating stuff to make. We all started with not much just keep looking for things to make and buy cheap

  • If you have any DOLLAR TREE or Dollar Store.....everything's a buck. Even Family Dollar and Dollar General have some items for hme decor that arent too much.

    SOME times on Craigs their FREE section, some people give knick knacks away. As a matter of fact a friend of mine whom acted quick was able to get SO much stuff for her house. From a nice queen pillw top bed from a family who's parent was ging into a nursing home, curio cabinet, dinette table and hutch to match, a few good working TV's... coffee tables...lamps..etc. SHE really lucked out.

    I got a mattress to an old hospital bed and my neice uses that to sleep on on TOP of our futon couch when she is in town for added comfort! ( It folds half! LOL )

    Good luck in finding a few things to make your home, "yours" with your own touch!
