Everyone needs change. Changing your surroundings can give you a fresh perspective and it can be fun! Revamping your room can be easy and super affordable. Learn how to redo your room on a budget by following these tips.
Change out your pillows. Pillows come in so many textures and colors! You can make your own in less than 15 minutes. All you need is fabric, no-sew fabric glue, and poly-fil!
Choose the fabric you want and cut two squares a little bit bigger than your desired size. Fold each side down for a clean edge before gluing them together.
Glue three sides of the fabric together, leaving one side unglued so that you can stuff it.
Finally, stuff the pillow with poly-fil and glue together the final side (for extra durability, sew the sides of the pillow).
(Optional) For texture, simply glue on pom-poms or tassels to even make your pillow one-of-a-kind!
Here are some pillows for inspiration!
Add wall decor. If you are renting a place and not allowed to paint your walls, this is a great solution! Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie always have wall decor that is to die for. Check out their sale for affordable decor. Here are some of our favorites (all under $50). Also, links are under each picture!
Paint your furniture.Paint can give an object new life! All you need is sandpaper and paint. Paint + primer paint gets the job done in fewer coats! First, sand down your furniture so that the paint will have something to grip on. Then, just paint away! (Optional: switching out the knobs)
