50 Ideas under $50

What a funny little coincidence that yesterday's post was about Better Homes and Gardens. Yesterday I also got my July 2011 issue in the mail, where I was lucky enough to be included with some seriously fabulous bloggers in a feature on inexpensive ways to spruce up your home.

I won't give it all away for those of your who haven't received your July issue yet, but, Dang! Look how great those Lack tables look all decked out in nail head trim!


Some of the ideas that they couldn't fit in the print publication were featured in this online article. Aren't the colors in this room so awesome? Would you believe that lovely skirted table was made using one of those plywood "decorator's tables"- the ones where you have to screw in the legs? Also, I think I need that lamp.


Thanks for including my ideas, BHG!!

Congrats to you on the feature! I was thinking of doing the same nail head thing to the big lack coffee table! Do they use faux nail heads with flat backs and just glue them on? I'm curious!

Hi, where can I find a decorators table for $10 specifically as indicated in the article? My Google Shopping feature is not helping at all with that search. Thanks!

I was thrilled to receive my BHG last night and to see you and Erin Gates mentioned. I love your blogs. Great idea = Lack tables. Where can you buy nail head trim?

OK usually I think decorator's tables look really cheap, but that skirt is adorable. I have a plastic decorator's table holding up a Victorian dollhouse right now and it would be WAY cuter with a skirt like that!

Dear Jenny,

Firstly, I wanted to thank you for being so generous with your advice. As someone who has broken the bank balance in trying to get a place your ideas to get a crisp professional look are very much appreciated.

Finally I was looking at the list of ideas on your link, and surprise my favourite one is one that you give about using gift papers as wall papers. I was wondering would that work in a powder room as well? Or I shouldn't try it at any places with any damp?

thanks again,
n

Does anyone know where the fabric for the pillow on the bed comes from? The mint green/white/mustard combo is awesome and I am in love with that fabric. Thanks!

Jenny, just stumbled upon this BHG article (only a year late!) through Pinterest. Congrats!! I absolutely adore the wood four poster bed. Do you recall who it's by? Thanks!!
