It does not need to cost a fortune and using paint or transfers you can easily turn a cardboard box into a storage box. Stackable baskets are also a purse-friendly way to marry style and practicality.
Simple things like updating the handles on your wardrobe and chest of drawers, or giving your bedroom a fresh coat of paint will make a huge difference. Putting up a mirror or adding new lighting are another two easy projects that can have a transformative effect.
The key to decorating on a tight budget is to do things gradually. Repaint one month, update the flooring the next and buy new bedding the month after. Before you know it, you will have a modern, fresh looking bedroom to enjoy.
