Found objects are an eye-catching alternative to artwork above a mantel. You can replicate this look by layering discs, made of wood or metal, that you find new at discount home decor stores or while rummaging through items at thrift stops, says Donna Mathis with Haven Design Works. Look for ones with different sizes, which also can save money, instead of buying three large discs.
This bathroom, once an drab, outdated space, received a makeover on HGTV's Buying and Selling. To save money, Jonathan Scott updated the existing vanity with soft gray paint, installed new granite countertops and replaced the '80s-style sinks with new recessed sinks. With new stylish artwork on the wall, this bathroom is now a selling point instead of a problem room.
