Decorate Your Home Without Spending Anything

Decorate Your Home Without Spending Anything
  • Opening Intro -

    Are you on such a tight budget that you find it nearly impossible to decorate your home?

    Well, it's possible to decorate without spending any money.

    All it takes is some creativity and effort along with help from others.


The first place you can check is the attic because you can use some old decorations that you had stored for years to make the home look beautiful.

Another idea is to go over your walls with any extra gallons of paint that you have in the house. Some home improvement stores also give away free gallons of paint that wasn’t mixed the right way or that came out in weird colors.

Here are some additional ideas.

Furniture Arrangements

Sometimes all it takes for your home to look fresh again is to rearrange your furniture.

If you have a small living room, you can place the sofa closer to the hallway entry area to give the room a larger look.

Another idea is to stack your bookcases vertically to take the bulkiness out of the living room’s appearance. Experiment with different angles for the furniture and place your TV on the wall to save space in the living room.

Have Fun With Old Wallpaper

Find good uses for your old wallpaper. You can cut large sheets of the wallpaper and use them as liners in your dresser drawers.

If you’re good at sewing, you should create neat looking placemats for the kitchen table. Wallpaper can also be used to line your kitchen countertops if they are badly stained from messes over the tears.

Some people even use the wallpaper to create replicas of vinyl chairs from the 50s and 60s for a retro look.

Finally, decorate your old colored kitchen cabinets with old wallpaper pieces.

Hang Up Old Baby Clothes on Wall

If you’re decorating your baby boy’s room, take some of the clothes that he no longer wears and frame them before hanging them up on the wall as decor. Choose the best outfits and look for pieces of clothing that have the most style.

For example, if his room is nautical style, you can hang up mostly his old navy, white and blue outfits on the wall to complement the other decorations in the room. Another idea would be to hang up clothing with slogans that discuss the sea, boats and the Navy.

Get Decorative Hand Me Downs From Loved Ones

Another idea is to ask friends and loved ones for any decorative items that they no longer need.

If you’re decorating your home for Thanksgiving, your mom may have some floral tablepieces and mini pumpkins that she doesn’t need anymore.

In conclusion, you don’t have to spend a fortune to have a well decorated home when you can use what you already have.
