Tired of your decor and waiting to be able to afford things that will really make a difference? I was, too, and had been appeasing my need for new things by shopping for little odds and ends at the dollar store, but found that some of that ended up being super tacky and looked quite cheap. Definitely not the effect I was going for. If you find yourself daydreaming of lovely new decor but think you can’t afford it, you should definitely check out the 5 ideas I just found in this Youtube video.
Here’s what you have in store:
I love the ethereal look of whites and off-white decor with silver accents and this is exactly the look that Christine Kobzeff achieves in her DIY projects in her tutorial. The first project she makes is this incredibly easy and inexpensive lampshade chandelier. It looks neither cheap nor inexpensive…far from it! It’s absolutely beautiful!
Then she makes a lovely mirrored mosaic wall hanging. I don’t know if you’ve ever done a mosaic project, but it’s so easy and the results are so fabulous! She had a cheap mirror that she broke into pieces and created an incredibly inexpensive piece of art.
Next, she makes a faux sheepskin pelt by purchasing a piece of faux Mongolian fur at the fabric store and simply cutting it in some shapely curves to lay over the back of her clear translucent chair. She suggests finding a fabric that’s not going to fray or shed.
Then she cuts up an old cable knit sweater and makes pillows for her little love seat to go with the faux fur pillow.
Lastly, she repurposes a silver sequin top and skirt, that she no longer wears, and makes pillows the same way she did with the cable knit sweaters. She puts those on her bed, adding a new texture and accent to offset the whites.
Don’t you love the way all of these projects flow together and create such a chic and sophisticated look?
