Hi Friends! I am a girl who loves having a beautiful home, but I’ve also got a budget. I’ve slowly transformed my main living space and I wanted to share with you how I’ve done it with limited funds. I hope this post will give you some ideas for how you can update your space for less!
Let’s start with the before pictures:
Ugggh! Those are scary! So dark and bland. But things got better!
I painted the walls white
Paint is such an inexpensive way to quickly change things up. And I found the perfect white paint color! Goodbye cave-like grey!
I added in a custom wall treatment
For me this was chair and picture molding. This gives the room a very classy look. It was around $200 to install (so not the cheapest), but the room has a whole new feel now. Stencils or wallpaper are more options for changing up your walls. Here are my best tips for buying wallpaper on a budget.
I put up a ledge gallery wall behind my sofa
I used $9.99 ledges from Ikea and added in inexpensive art (framed cards, printables from Etsy) and personal touches.
