It seemed to be a hit, garnering some of the most page views of the year.
Here were the Top 5 most-viewed $30-and-under ideas:
Paint is one of the quickest, easiest ways to make a major change in a room and you can do it with just one gallon of paint – no matter the size of your room – if you paint just an accent wall.
It’s a great idea, which made it the most viewed under-$30 idea in The Design File series.
I love the idea of framing fabric and readers must have too because it was our third most-viewed under-$30 tip.
The example above is from Apartment Therapy. These fabric hoops have been hung from the ceiling in a nursery for maximum impact.
This was one of my favorite tips of the under-$30 series. It’s a great way to introduce a little color and fun to a room without too much commitment.
In the BHG kitchen above right, you can see how the red background inside the cabinets makes the white dishes really stand out. In the uperr left photo from MyHomeIdeas.com, the blue paint inside the hutch gives the antique a modern twist.
It’s been a decade since I’ve had a headboard purchased at a store.
I made one years ago from some clearance fabric and batting stretched around a piece of plywood and mounted to the wall.
The headboard (at right) in my guest room is a wooden screen that had been in my Mom’s house for years, got passed down to me so I could hide my cat’s litter box and then become a headboard when my husband and I redecorated the room.
There are few things women own that are prettier than their jewelry. So why are we hiding it all away in jewelry boxes and drawers when we could be using it to spice up our bedrooms? That’s why I made it an under-$30 tip.
