And, if you enjoy re-purposing unused furniture or other items for a new purpose, you can certainly stretch your decorating dollar.

An unused mailbox can be transformed into a decorative organizer, breadbox, or other functional purpose. As I always say – You are only limited by your imagination!

In addition to the budget decorating ideas in the slideshow, you can also refresh any room with any of the ideas below. All of which are FREE!!

Rearrange furniture – Change the layout of a room’s furniture for dramatic results.

Swap out accessories – Refresh a room’s décor by swapping framed photos, wall décor, and other accessories with those from another room.

Declutter – Declutter a room and you’ll be amazed at the results. You’ll gain floor space, which will give the illusion of a larger room. This is a great time to set unused items aside for repurposing!

Put excess supplies to use – It seems that anytime you tackle a home improvement project you will have leftover supplies. Put those excess supplies to use as part of your budget decorating plan! Leftover wallpaper, paint, spray paint, fabric, etc., can all be put to good use. As an example, check out these 10 uses for leftover wallpaper.

Let in the light – If windows are covered with dirty, dated window blinds, take them down and let in the natural light. This will instantly make the room feel more cheery and spacious. Be sure to give the windows a good cleaning, as well.
