Shop the markets
"Antique markets are the most unexpected place to find budget-friendly decor items. From vases to picture frames, you can find anything these days at an antique market or shop. Most items will be in need of a little TLC, but there is nothing a little coat of spray paint can't fix."
"Take this old wooden door for example. I purchased it last fall for $10. With an inexpensive picture hanging kit and some bull clips, I turned it into a rustic picture frame, which now hangs in my office. The perfect example of how one person's trash is another person's budget-friendly decor." -- Brittany Stager
