How to DIY home decor on a budget

  1. Painting your kitchen backsplash – Not happy with the color of your kitchen backsplash? Fortunately, this is a problem that is easy to remedy with a little paint. There’s no need to demo the backsplash and pay for an expensive replacement. You’ll need to clean, sand, prime, and paint with special epoxy paint to paint kitchen tiles.
  2. Create a gallery wall – Is that big empty wall bothering you? Instead of purchasing a large, expensive painting or print, we recommend doing a little gallery wall DIYing. Use photos and prints you already have, purchase frames from an inexpensive frame store and start planning where you want them to go on the wall. We recommend mixing and matching different colors and frame finishes for an eclectic look. You can also purchase ready-made gallery wall prints and frames from a number of stores, including Pottery Barn, West Elm and Framebridge.
  3. Replacing seat cushions with your fabric of choice – Have upholstered chairs, benches or bar stools you’d like to update? Simply remove the upholstered seat from the frame and use a staple remover to remove the current fabric covering. Once it’s removed, place the new fabric on the seat and staple it to the seat frame, stapling the sides first followed by the corners.
  4. Wallpapering a bookshelf, china cabinet, pantry or closet – Add a bit of Service Basket UAE to your bookshelves, pantry or closets with fun wallpaper. Whether you use permanent or temporary wallpaper, just make sure to choose a pattern you love. If possible, remove all shelving before applying wallpaper.
  5. Create your own art – Not only does adding your own art to the home instantly personalize your abode, but it’s also a much more affordable way to decorate. Of all the DIY home decor ideas, this is probably the easiest. Whether it’s a watercolor painting you created yourself, your own photography or a framed textile, creating your own artwork is both a rewarding and cost-efficient DIY home decor project.
  6. Dress up plain candles – You can find affordable plain candles in all of your favorite colors at discount stores and even most grocery stores. Gather some twine and dried flowers to tie around the candles and place them around your home as accents.
  7. Decorate your picture frames and mirrors – If you have a hot glue gun, you can decorate a picture frame or mirror with whatever decor you like. A few DIY frame and mirror ideas include decorating with seashells, buttons, sequins, leaves or whatever else you want.
  8. Paint the dining room table – Why buy a new dining table when you can simply paint your existing one? This is a great DIY home decor option that is sure to brighten up your breakfast room or dining room without breaking the bank. To paint a dining table, you’ll likely need to sand and prime it first. HGTV recommends using water-based enamel paint for the final coat.
  9. Decals on the stairs – Want to liven up your stairs without paying for an expensive rug runner? Try applying stair riser decals to the front side (i.e., the side facing the person walking up the staircase). These decals are removable, so you can always switch them out when you’re ready for a change.
