I’m so excited for my friend, Julie, from Milk and Honey Home.  Her decorating tips for $50 or less are featured in the July issue of Better Homes and Gardens magazine and online.  Here are a couple of her ideas…

Open Cabinetry for Less

Love the look of open shelving but not able to rip out cabinets? Remove the doors, then paint or wallpaper the backs of the cabinets with a contrasting color.

Refresh Your Furniture

A matching bedroom ensemble can be boring, but it’s usually the less-expensive route. So go ahead and match, then add your personal touch by painting the bed or one piece of the furniture. I made my matched set seem more my own by painting the bed with a semigloss oil-based white paint. I changed the look of the nightstands, too, with clearance knobs.
