Okay, we’ve been there: you really want to shake up your space, but you (or your significant other) need it to come in under budget. So we’ve created a hypothetical situation where you only have $100 to spend but need to make some major changes: You’ve just moved into a new house and your guest room walls need to be completed in 10 days or less so that your mother-in-law can come visit. You with us? 10 days. One mother-in-law. $100. That’s it.
Here are ten unique ideas to change your space dramatically… and on a shoestring budget:
The birch trees can be used to complete a room fit for any mother-in-law and come in at only $88 and $73, respectively.
The 2″ confetti polka dots would require, on average, three packs to do a full wall. That will cost you a mere $36.
Any of the mini design packs can complete a wall in three packs or less, which will also cost you no more than $36.
Easy Stripe, designed to replace the hassle of painting stripes, can complete a wall in under $100 in a slew of ways. In the first example, two rolls—which totals 72 feet of vinyl—will complete a wall for $80. In the second example, a 2-inch stripe and a 1-inch stripe will complete a wall for $34.
Many of our nursery wall decals will cost you only $28 and can be used as a focal point in any room to complete the look.
Two of our most popular office quotes can be combined to complete a wall for just $62.
You can combine SIX total prints from one of our feature artists (seen here: David Olenick) for a total of $56.
You can take home Banksy’s most popular “Love Floats,” which would easily cover a whole wall for $55, or you can even combine it with his next most popular “Thinking Money” and still have $2 left over.
Our two most popular trees (both of which EASILY take up an entire wall and are sure to impress even the pickiest in-law) come in under $100 each.
Want something a little more rustic for mom? Try adhesive taxidermy! Our Spanish Fighting Bull will cost you $32 and leave you plenty of spending money to put a Bull Skull in another room, with $38 left to spend on other decals.
And you’ve done it. You’ve really accomplished something here. Now take your leftover budget money and go buy yourself a margarita. You deserve it.
