I’m so excited about today’s post! This one is right up my alley….budget friendly decor.
The one thing I love to do and have done in my own home over and over……
“Budget Friendly Decor”
My decorating friends and I will all be sharing a bit of vintage and thrifted finds in our decor this month.
So, since I have so many thrifted and vintage items already (my entire house! ;) ), I thought I’d share some of my favorites with you all.
AND…share how you can create budget friendly decor too!
(PIN this to save for later! :) )
First up, 2 of my very favorite (which are about to undergo a makeover as well)….”shutters”.
Well, they are actually $5 bi-fold doors I turned into “shutters”. :)
You can read all about them here >>> “Repurposed Bi-Fold Doors to Shutters”
Another of my favorite thrift store finds…..this old milk can.
Want to see what it looked like when I found it and how much I paid? ;) See the rusty “before” here >>> “Old Milk Can Makeover”
My stairwell gallery wall created for less than $20 using thrifted frames and mats.
See more here >>> “A Gallery Wall…The Thrifty Way”
My loves….Blue Ball Mason Jars.
I don’t care if these have supposedly “gone out of style” again….I will love them til forever!
And these blue bottles and old books too…..
See more here >>> “Coastal Styled Bookshelves”
These .25 cent jars….perfect for painting and decorating with.
See how I got that super straight line…the really easy way, here >>> “Gold Dipped Jars”
And of course, my coffee bar!
I so enjoyed this coffee bar. I found it at the thrift store too (for cheap!).
See painting details here (and how rough it looked when I got it) >>> “Coffee Bar Server”
Many of the items on top of this dresser…..
….and the shutters on each side of the gallery wall too.
Plus the gorgeous blue dresser is, as well.
See it when it was an old beat up brown dresser here >>> “Aubusson Blue Dresser Re-do”
Even my newest “coffee bar” is thrifted…..
….as well as the “print turned chalkboard” and coffee mugs.
The chest came from one of my favorite thrift stores.
You can read more about the chest, paint and graphics here (and see the “before”) >>> “Knots Nautical Chest”
And I’ll leave with this……
Ninety percent of everything you see on those shelves was found at the thrift store or a garage sale.
See the blue, antique fan on the right? I found that one at a garage sale recently.
Even the little foot stool under the desk is a thrift store item. :)
You can read about the bookcase we built here >>> “DIY Built In Bookcase”
