Hi everyone! Being at home the last month and a half has got me itching to re-decorate my entire house. While I love spending some time each day on Pinterest and home furnishing sites adding items to my cart, I know I need to be careful with my money until these uncertain times are over. That being said, I scratched my itch a little by giving one of our spare rooms, which I use as a closet and my yoga room, a little makeover.
I started my refresh by getting a cute basket to put my fiddle leaf fig plant in. Baskets are a great way to elevate the look of your houseplants and make them fit with your home decor a a little more. This is the basket I have for my fiddle leaf. Next on my list was to add a mini gallery wall.
I mapped out what sizes I wanted and how I wanted them arranged on the wall using some pages from magazines. I’m a visual person so this was super helpful to see how the art would look on the wall. This also allows you to try out a bunch of different arrangements without putting any holes in your walls.
I browsed Etsy and found some art that I liked. There are so many inexpensive prints available on Etsy, all of my prints cost less than $6 each! The prints I purchased were digital downloads so I was able to print some right away. I printed the two 8×10 prints at home on photo paper. For the larger 11×14 prints I used Snapfish, the two prints cost me $25 and this was including shipping. I found these inexpensive frames from Amazon to house my new prints in. I was really surprised by the quality of these frames, they look and feel like they would cost a lot more than they did. I used this tool to help me align everything perfectly. It let me hang my prints easily and made sure everything was level.
I’m really happy with how my little room makeover turned out. For about $130 I was able to brighten and cozy up my space. Now I can’t wait to go into this room to practice some yoga or do a little work at my desk.
