Style Tips for Bargain Décor

Fresh, funky, and super-cheap, these decorating ideas from Better Homes & Gardens are wallet-friendly and style-savvy.

Drive through any neighborhood on trash day and you're sure to find a beat-up chair or two. Rescue the sturdy ones with sandpaper, primer, and paint. Re-cover the seat by cutting fabric larger all around and attaching it with a staple gun. For extra flair, embellish the chair back with rub-on lettering.

Save an awkward nook with wallpaper. Extra-large patterns work well to keep the look uncluttered, and the same paper used from floor to sloped ceiling helps unite the space.

Gather a few of your favorite fabrics and showcase them in an assortment of mismatched frames.

Give an old cupboard a face-lift with bold color. Splashy pink with stenciled pattern turns storage into a major design statement.
