I is for Inexpensive

One thing I love to do is see how much I can do decor-wise for as little money as possible. Here are 3 easy updates that cost next to nothing:

  • An affordable way to get the look of custom-made draperies: simply add fabric borders to the bottom of your existing drapery panels.

  • You can also enhance your throw pillows by adding some fringe, buttons or beadwork.

  • Plain bed linens can be given a new look by sewing a band or 2 of satin ribbon or braiding a little way in from the hems of the pillowcases and sheets.

Each of these is an fairly quick & inexpensive way to make things look a little nicer!

Great tip on adding the ribbon to sheets! I've been looking at ours wondering how to just add a bit of 'me' to them. Now I have the perfect idea!

Almost anything can be updated by adding trim to it!
