Who doesn’t occasionally walk through Pottery Barn and think, I WANT IT ALL. But let’s be honest, most of us are functioning on a budget. Which means you have to keep your decor shopping sprees to a minimum. Or at least you have to stock up with furniture that’s on the cheaper side. There is no shame with buying inexpensive furniture (hello, Ikea) to jazz up your home, but sometimes you’re craving a luxe look that you can’t quite get from cheaper furniture. Sad but true. What you CAN do, however? Upgrade your inexpensive furniture yourself by trying these 27 brilliant projects! Your decor is going to go from cheap to chic in a snap.
This Foto Pendent (only $29.99) looks classy and simple on its own. But if you’re looking for a rustic touch, wrap three-ply jute twine around the lamp cord! This is an extremely cheap addition that won’t require a lot of time but will result in a shabby chic look.
