Is it just me, or is everyone feeling like they never have enough money? Doing up your house is expensive business especially for Eid entertaining. What if I told you that you can try budget-friendly updates this Eid, without maxing out your credit card.
Got old curtains or a bed cover that has become faded? Then get them dyed a cool new color like a funky turquoise or a deep red, it will change the look of your room completely and you save major bucks too.

Change Light Fixtures
Just changing the lamp or light fixture in a room can transform it. There are so many affordable options available in the market. If you want to be a really frugal, then just change the lamp shade or light cover to update. Chic and cheap too!
Most of us have paintings or prints that hang in the same old frames we bought them in. It’s time to get creative. Spray paint the frames gold or silver, or if you’re braver in trendy neon colors. Or add colored mats in navy or red to set off the artworks beautifully. The reframed art will add a new look to any room.
Or if you want a real change, many galleries offer affordable art.
