Decorating doesn’t need to be complicated or expensive. It also doesn’t need to be left to fancy grown-ups with mortgages and houses with four-car garages. Anyone can do it. And you don’t need to go to the store to pick up something fancy to upgrade your decor. You can change your space with some DIYs.
There are so many ways to get creative and jazz up your room with DIYs. One of my favorites is pillows. Pillows don’t involve a major time commitment, they can be added to almost any part of a room from the bed, a chair, to even the floor, and they’re comfy. Furthermore, there are so many more options beyond your standard square and rectangular varieties.
