CLASSIC BOOKS FOR DECORATION

Hardcover books and magazines can add value to your space when you use them as illustrated books.

If you want an elevated look, consider placing aesthetically pleasing ones on your desired surfaces.

However, coffee table books, especially hardcover books, can be quite expensive. So instead of buying them brand new, you might want to visit your local thrift store.

You will definitely discover some interesting finds.

ELEGANT Crockery

Looking for unusual, decorative crockery? Check out the charity shops in your area.

There you will find pieces with a vintage look that will impress any guest without being too expensive.

WOODEN TABLES

Save money by skipping new wooden pieces and test your DIY skills by making your own used dinnerware.

By sanding and staining a used wooden dining table, you could breathe new life into it.

And don’t worry – it doesn’t have to be perfect. A few dents and scratches just add a vintage feel.

MIRROR

From full length mirrors for practicality to more decorative wall pieces, you don’t need to spend too much on this item.

You can either get one at your local thrift store or find one through Facebook Marketplace.

PICTURES

Art will help define the feel of your space, and you can find vintage or contemporary-looking prints at a second-hand art store.

As for the picture frame, you can always upcycle an old one you have lying around or get one from a family member or friend.

Simply repaint the frame to achieve your desired look.
