Inexpensive Decor Ideas

If you’re anything like me:  you love and appreciate interior design and décor but the practicalities of life get in the way, specifically money. Here are some inexpensive décor ideas that I think you’ll love.

From  Lina pa Landet (above and below) comes the inexpensive idea of using an old door as a headboard and a simple wine crate as a nightstand. Inexpensive while also being modern and cool.

You can also use simple frames and rope or twine for wall décor (also above), without worrying about the expense of prints and mattes.

From My Scandinavian Home, I love the idea of a simple branch with a simple garland or string of white lights being transformed into wall décor (above). And the star made from twigs is an easy diy project.

Using paper lanterns (above) is another cheap way to add texture and interest.

Make your own artwork. Knock-off artwork you see in magazines or in galleries (I like the image above). A simple white canvas with paint or colored paper can add a modern and original touch.

I love the idea of bringing the outside in (above). Use tree branches for art. Adds a modern 3-dimensional touch.

From HGTV comes an easy and inexpensive décor idea:  use rope or twine to hang curtains. Adds a fun rustic feel!

Another way to “bring the outside in” is to use a log or tree stump (above) as an end table.

Can’t afford expensive dining chairs? Find miscellaneous chairs at estate sales, consignment stores or thrift stores and paint them all the same color.

Again, using thrift store finds and old wooden crates (above), a room can be fabulous.

Decorating with rocks, sand and pebbles is an easy and inexpensive way to fill up a sparce space.

Incorporating iron gates and ladders (above) and other unusual elements adds a rustic and unexpected touch.

Use your own old books or find some at thrift stores and paint them all white. Stack and glue. Voila! A stack of old books becomes a night stand. Love this idea!

Take a simple pallet (above), paint it and attach industrial wheels. Great coffee table! Or stain it and use it as a display rack for dishes (below).

Use a simple inexpensive string of lights (usually on sale at the end of a season) in place of an expensive lamp. Very modern.

Great idea to use wooden skirt hangers (above) or metal clasps (below) to display art.

I love the idea (below) of using an ordinary ladder as a bookcase.

I hope you are inspired by these inexpensive decor ideas to create your own masterpieces. I will definitely be knocking-off some of these unique low-cost design concepts myself.
