How did you acquire your home decor?

I'm always interested In this. My families houses are always so decorated but yet my home is always bare. Do you go out and get decor you like little by little? Just happen to spot it? Or is it given to you?

Ugh, my home is so bare too. We just moved in like 8 months ago. We are so cheap though lol, we hate spending money if we don't have to so I never want to go shopping. We have picked a few things up here and there at tag sales. I figure we have a lifetime to fill it up :)

A nice handful of what we have is from my bridal shower. Since we had been living together and had a lot of what we "needed" I put stuff like mirrors, frames, curtains, vases, and the lot on our registry- all Target, so it wasn't outrageously priced. 

Some of it I've made and some of it has been given to me because someone else didn't want it.

 Ours is pretty bare. But I have been buying stuff here and there when I find it.

Lots of stores, and I love family pictures in nice frames

A lot of it I've bought myself just based on what it is and if I like it.  We don't really have a theme, though.  I love paintings, so we have a few paintings.  Our hallway is lined with collage frames full of our families.

We have a few things given to us by DH's family, but most of it I saw and liked somewhere and bought on a whim. A lot of things I make too, some signs in the bathroom/ laundry room, some things for the backyard I pieces together with stuff we have laying around I haven't gotten around to putting up yet. I like my house to feel lived in.

A lot of our furnishings and appliances came from my in-laws downsizing their home at the same time we bought our home. Over the past 4 years, we've been replacing things as needed with things that are more our style.

We bought most of our things. DH and I both lived separate before we moved in with each other, so we were able to buy things little by little.

It's mixture. My bedroom fruniture and dining room table i inherited. Some of the other fruniture was given to me by family. Most od the "stuff" I just randomly buy as I find stuff I like.
