Decorating on a Budget: Find Gems in Garage Sales

Wondering where to buy cheap home décor is a thing of the past... IF you would consider purchasing second- hand items. Garage and yard sales may look dusty and full of trash, but the truth is that there are plenty of things you can find and use for a home decorating project. And the best thing about it? Everything is cheap so a little cash goes a long way.


Great Furniture

There are options on what to do with furniture that has lost its beauty through time. They may need repainting, a few repairs, or some revamping with covers. The point is that furniture from yard sales are on bargain prices. With just a little effort and creativity, you get to own unique pieces that will totally add personality to your home.


Cool Lighting Ornaments

Lighting fixtures can be made out of absolutely everything. From colanders to tea pots, vases, and even industrial metal items—they can be made into creative lamps by using a cheap lamp kit from a craft store. These kits are easy to use and you can convert anything into lamps in no time.


Decorative pieces

Most garage sales have sets of items that are missing a piece or two. A good example would be a tea set that has missing tea cups. While it will look odd to display an incomplete set, using the remaining pieces at empty corners would still look great. The idea here is to make odd pieces useful as a decorative item. You can have it at the lonely spot on the bookshelf, or make a lovely accent on the divider. Another example is incomplete plate sets. In fact, lonely strays are the best for a plate project. Of course you are not going to use it for dinner! Plates can look good as a plate display on the walls. Hang out some of the pieces for a lovely work of art. A sad looking and empty wall will instantly look alive with this idea.


Pieces that can hold things are also great finds. Keep an eye out for goblets, glass vases, milk glass, and bowls. Spray-painting them with a solid color can add a fresh look while also making them handy as candle holders or as flower vases.


Fabric Finds

Yard sales also hold nice fabrics. They are going to look nice as one of a kind table runner, pillow covers, and even curtain accents. Yard sale fabric may be out of dresses, sheets, and quilts. Just make sure to have matching colors or patterns. Don’t forget to wash fabric finds well and treat it for at least 20 minutes in the hot dryer.


Recycling and up cycling are the two main ideas that make garage and yard sale finds the best place to find cheap home décor. The creative possibilities from the items you will find are endless. If you got the time but have little money for a decorating project, then you can do so well out of garage sale finds.


Listen... If a guy in his 60's can open up an online store SO CAN YOU!!!

Hope you enjoyed reading :)
