Wall art gives a room an eye-pleasing pop, but individual pieces can sometimes run on the expensive side. Use a bit of creativity
to give your walls a chic look on the cheap―and no one will be any the wiser. Simply mount wallpaper remnants (especially ones with unique and exciting patterns) on fiberboard; frame, then hang on the wall. Get a high-price look for
less by lining several wallpaper panels on the same plane to cover a lot of wall space and make a big statement.

There’s a lot more than cooking going on in the average kitchen. Coastal Living suggests adding a cozy built-in daybed to maximize this space, which often serves as a culinary zone/office/hangout. Provide a casual, comfortable seating option for less by adding a
loveseat or small sofa in lieu of the custom daybed.

Myhomeideas.com shows us that nature can provide the perfect palette and pop of color. Displaying fruit with bright hues, such as Granny Smith apples and lemons, in vases or centerpiece bowls provides a striking focal point and is less expensive
than decorating with flower bouquets. You can wrap a ribbon around a fruit-filled vase for a nice finish. Hungry for the real
thing? Whip up easy, fruit treats for less than $2 a serving!
