This post highlights my favorite places to get affordable pieces, easy DIY decor ideas and 5 main tips to help you save on your living room home decor!
How do you Decorate a Living Room?
1. Look for Inspiration through Pinterest and Instagram!
I looked at lots and lots of TV stand ideas and decor before I knew how I wanted to decorate and then saved like crazy to get the larger items I needed.
Once you find your style, hunt for affordable pieces that create the same appeal as your design guides and DIY were you can!
2. Don’t be afraid to mix new with old and update items that are no longer in style or to your taste!
My living room is a collection of new and old pieces.
I bout the TV stand and shelves brand new. I didn’t like the hardware color on the TV stand, though, so I used this color spray paint to add some gold accents to it.
(This is the best gold spray paint I’ve ever used, by the way! The color is perfect; not too yellow, and almost like a rose gold!)

3. Shop Smart!
TJ Maxx and Homegoods are great places to find inexpensive pieces that look amazing!
I bought most of my shelf decorations at TJ Maxx/Homegoods, but threw in some DIY items as well.
Make sure to also pay attention to seasonal sales and ads to help you save.
4. Make your own prints.
I created a print for our family motto and I love how it turned out.

5. Hit the thrift store to up-cycle or re-purpose cheap items.
When I saw a collection of pink vintage books on Pinterest and Instagram, I knew I had to have some for my living room decor. But, I didn’t have any luck until I took a trip to my local thrift store. The ones on Etsey were not my style and were way too expensive.
I should have know to head to the thrift store first! One of the coolest books I found was “The Girls’ Book of Grammer (A Guide to Being a Goddess)“. It’s so cute! And it’s something I would actually read.
I think I spent $13 on all 8 books I bought. Such a steal!
You can also up-cycle old lamps, furniture, picture frames and anything else your creativity can handle!
