Decorate Your Home for $10 or less!

Hey all it is Brooke from Start at Home here to share a few of my favorite decorating tips!

I love to make my house a home, to personalize it to my taste.  However, it can be very expensive to decorate an entire house.  Here are a few of my favorite $10 or less decorating tips to make a statement in your home.

I love my book page wreath.  It has been with me for a very long time now, and it is still one of my favorite DIY projects.  It cost me about $6 and it took me 2 hours. You can see my video tutorial here

How about a lamp revamp?  Did you know updating your lamp shade can give your lamp a whole new look and feel?

I wrapped twine around this dated lamp and cut the ugly orange jewels that were hanging off the bottom off.    It adds a great natural texture and brought this beauty back to life

 

 

 
For this lamp I first covered the lamp shade with burlap and then hot glued gathered pieces of burlap over the top.  For the base I quickly painted it with some left over paint for a previous project giving this lamp a whole new life!

 

 
Don’t we all love a good pallet project. 
For these frames I used left over pallets from our sod and painted them white to really bring out their rough texture. 

 

 
And last but not least, I love to decorate with jars, any kind of jars. 
I fill them with flowers or …..
 
 
any kind of knick knacks I can find around the house, like corks or old sewing spools.
 
 
 
 
 
I also love painted jars.  I used chalk paint to paint this jars and then lightly sanded over the lettering on the jar to make it stand out! 

 

 
 
A huge thank you to the Lou Lou Girls for letting me take over the blog today, it has been a pleasure!!!
