So, you recently bought a new house and are looking forward to giving it a homey touch. However, your budget doesn’t exactly allow you to go for any luxury items. With the basics being your priority, you are trying to carve out a small budget with which you can give your house a warm and inviting look.
Well, not to worry because we have some great ideas for you! You can keep your basics and add a few DIY touches to any room to give it a unique look. The luxuries can always be bought later on. In the mean time, the following décor tips will allow you to give your house an artistic touch:
Chevron Wood Shims
You don’t need $1,000 paintings to adorn your bedroom walls. For an eye-catching look, use wood shims to add color to your bedroom. Head on over to the local hardware store and buy some spray paint cans and wood shims. Spray paint the wood strips in your favorite color and stick them on the wall in a chevron pattern. You have plenty of room to experiment with wood strips and different designs you can try in every bedroom.
Your Very Own Art Gallery
Scour your house and look for objects that are similar to each other. The similarity can be anything such as color or shape. You can buy art objects at the flea market for just $4. Use these objects to create an art gallery and group them together in an abstract pattern. To compliment the art gallery, you can add a shelf or two on the wall for books and decorative items.
Pixelized Accent Wall
Now that you have furnished and properly arranged your living room, it’s time to add some extra color and flare to the walls that will compliment your furniture. All you need for a pixelized accent wall is a wood panel and a single paint color. Say your living room is furnished in blue accents then you can use shades of blue to paint the panel. Simply create grids, tap off the squares and start with the darker shades. Gradually mix white paint and move your way down on the panel. If you are looking for a transparent watercolor effect, then mix some water in the paint.
Are you into making DIY décor items? Even if you’re not, try out rope art for a start. All it requires is rope and glue. From creating lanterns to rugs, seat covers and wall art, you can do pretty much anything with it. Here’s an idea for your bedroom:
Make a heart with the rope and glue the joints. Cut the rope and then write love with it in italics. Leave the end of the ’E’ flaring out of the heart. Attach two birds facing each other at the top of the heart. You can create different themes in the guest bedroom, as well as the kid’s room.
There are plenty of inexpensive ideas to make your house feel more like a home. You can easily find DIY art projects on the internet and their directions on You Tube. So, what are you waiting for? Go buy yourself some art supplies and get started
