Budget Dining Room Decorating Ideas

Do you think it takes thousands of dollars to change your dining room from drab to fab?

Think again! Try out some ourdining-room-decorating-ideas budget dining room decorating ideas and be amazed by the change they’ll make!

Just because your dining room furniture is outdated and shabby, doesn’t mean you have to go out and purchase new items.  You can try adding a new centerpiece to your dining room table.  Centerpieces such as colored glass bowls, fresh flowers, candlesticks or plants breath new life to your table.  Coupled with a matching runner, your dining room already starts to look more chic.

Instead of purchasing a buffet or sideboard, you can try either paining an old one to in a bright shade.  If you don’t have a buffet, a dresser or shelf from another room in your house can be used instead.  Cabinets can be painted and used to display china or other decorative items.  By painting the cabinets the same color as your dining room walls, you create an elegant illusion that the furniture is built in to the space.

Buying inexpensive pads for your chairs from a flee market or garage sale will make them more chic and comfortable.  An alternative room decorating idea for your chairs is to redo them by yourself.  It may take a bit of time and effort but there are great DIY ways to repaint and re-upholster chairs with a beautiful fabric of your choice.

Painting can do wonders for your dining room and is relatively inexpensive.  You can also painting your walls halfway and adding a wall paper border.  Wall paper border can be purchased for only a few dollars!  Your walls can also be decorated with vintage frames that you can purchase for about $5.  Paint them and use them to frame plates, old transferware or pretty tea towels.

Dining Room Decorating IdeasDon’t forget about accessorizing your dining room.  An adorable decorating idea is “fake monogramming”.  Iron-onembroidered letters can be purchased at craft stores for almost nothing and they can make cloth napkins look extremely elegant.  You can also try solid color candle displays (see picture) and displaying a mixture of new and antique objects for an eclectic, interesting look.
