Additionally, you can make your own decor items that looks fantastic and are absolutely affordable. Here are some ideas for simple home decor projects that won’t break the bank and will add a special something to your house.
Chalkboard Wall Paint
The best part of this project is that you can place this chalkboard anywhere that you can paint. That means you can add a chalkboard to the kitchen or the kids’ rooms. Most of the time, chalk paints are magnetic, so you can get as creative as you want while adding decorative magnets or even magnetic plant holders.
When it comes to bookshelves, this idea is probably the most visually appealing. There’s nothing cooler than a stack of books that looks like it’s floating in the air. Best of all, it’s so simple to create this optical illusion. It will certainly have your guests delighted and wondering just how it works.
Gold Flower Pots
It is super simple to give your home an upscale upgrade by adding gold flower pots as a decor piece. If you can’t find any gold flower pots, you can very simply make your own.

Mosaic CD Mirror
Wondering what to do with all those CDs that you haven’t used in decades? Here’s a neat idea for you.
