I’ve always believed that everyone, on any budget, deserves a beautiful place to call home. You don’t need a big bank account to have a stunning space. If you are blessed enough to have a fat wallet, you can just buy whatever you want – but I’m 99% certain that if you’ve got that kinda money you aren’t frequenting DIY blogs.
The tradeoff for spending little money typically means you have to spend more time: weeks shopping for that bargain rug, frequent stops at the thrift store hoping to luck upon that perfect piece of furniture, sewing your own curtains, just generally replacing the dollar signs with hours of time.
But, I’ve gotta admit – there’s a much greater sense of satisfaction in the feeling that I’ve done something myself than there is driving to Pottery Barn and buying it.
