Want to spruce up your abode, but don’t have the budget for a major renovation? There are some low-cost ways to change the look of any room without breaking the bank. Here are five easy tips on how to decorate on a dime.
Hang unique and colourful plates on the wall to make a fresh wall arrangement. Mix up the sizes, colours and textures of the plates to create a stunning visual display. Place the most dramatic and eye-catching plate toward the center. You can find many vintage plates at garage sales and thrift stores for less than $5. Take a cue from your plates to come up with a shape for your arrangement and let that be a guide for your design. For a free-floating look, you can use heavy-duty, peel-and-stick Disc Hangers, which are available in range of sizes. The other option is using a traditional wire plate hanger. In both cases, you’ll need to hammer a nail into the wall to hang it from. Make sure to adjust your marks on the wall according to where the plate hanger’s hook is.
