I’ve lived in my house for 6 years now. I’m terrified of putting holes in the wall or using paint. My husband has convinced me to put up a few things on the wall.
i want to find a way to add some pieces to the house without breaking the bank. Can you guide me to good places for cool stuff? we don’t live near ikea… Bo0, so we would have to guess if ordering on time.
Thanks for your help!

@hecallsmelove: Do you have a TJ Maxx or home consignment stores near you? That’s where I usually find decently priced stuff. If you’re willing to shop online, I would try overstock.com or jossandmain.com. I am a fan!

Also, HomeGoods is awesome…I usually shop thrift stores and this giant local weekiy flea market on the weekends. Joss and Main is excellent, but I tend to use it as inspiration only because the stuff can be kind of pricey.

I’ve found things at HomeGoods, CostPlus World Market, Ross, Walmart, Target, Kohl’s and we usually buy frames at the Aaron Brother’s 1 penny sale. It’ll take time to accumulate, figure out what you like (I’ve collected mostly London stuff and bird related items – the birds are in the living room, the London stuff is in my office and the bedroom. Hubs has collected tiki, owls and comic book related items so when we combined it was interesting to figure it all out. We’re now collecting baseball stuff together). Just look around, use coupons and shop sales. And get what you like, not just what you think will look good.

Look on amazon.com, we’ve found tons of things for great prices and many items have free shipping. Good will and salvation army can sometimes have amazing finds too, but it’s very hit or miss.

It takes, like, 5 seconds to spackle over nail holes. And paint is easily reversed. Is there a reason why you are scared of them? They are the easiest and least costly ways to decorate.
