Easy interior decorating ideas under $ 5 or free! | Real estate news and information
Decorating your home shouldn’t require cashing out a 401 (k). In fact, many of the items you need to brighten up your humble home may already be in your home, or bought for a few dollars at your local garage sale. From there, all it takes is a little creativity and a willingness to take a few risks, says Myquillyn Smith-alias the “The Nester” and author of “The Nesting Place: It Doesn’t Have Be Perfect to Be Beautiful”.
Here are some of his economical ideas for turning your own gears.

Tree stumps transformed into tables
Dried stumps can make great tables, painted or left as is (sanded top, of course). Before bringing them into your home, try to make sure all the bugs are taken out first by storing them for a few months in a dry place like your garage.
