Budget Home Makeover – Budgeting money to decorate your home can be affordable and a total makeover design can refresh your living room without emptying your wallet.

A fresh coat of paint can make a huge difference in any room. For the biggest impact, repaint the whole room and touch up the trim. Save money by doing it yourself or enlisting friends to help.

If you don’t have the time or the budget to paint an entire room, there are other ways to use paint to refresh the look of your home. One option is to paint an accent wall. To save time and money, paint just one wall of a room in a vibrant accent color.

Pillows can make any piece of furniture look more comfortable, and are a great opportunity to add a splash of color. Search the bargain bins at home decorating stores or sew your own covers for pillows you already own. A

Whether your walls are bare or covered in outdated framed prints, some new artwork can spice things up. You don’t need to spend hundreds on original prints to have nice artwork hanging on your walls. Find a print you like and save money by framing it yourself.
