If you’ve been fortunate enough to inherit a cabin or vacation home from a loved one, you may find that it’s something of a mixed blessing. On the upside, you’ll definitely enjoy all those relaxing getaways far from the hustle and bustle of city life. On the other hand you may find yourself in possession of a rundown building that’s desperately in need of maintenance and new furnishings.
So how can you go about redecorating a vacation home without putting yourself in the poor house in the process? Fortunately, there are some tips and tricks for going about the cabin decorating process without a tremendous amount of financial strain.
One great way of approaching this project is by deciding, in advance, exactly how much of your budget is going towards new items and how much towards used. Affordable accent pieces like rustic towel bars are worth purchasing new. You may find, however, that items like outdoor patio furniture aren’t worth the effort and you’ll just buy them used. (After all, they’ll be sitting outside all year anyways.)
