Anyone else get stuck in a rut with decor but lack budget for a whole revamp? I’ve been wanting a quick and easy change in our farmhouse style dining room, but I don’t have room this month in the budget for much. So I decided to change things up using two budget-friendly methods of approaching home decor: Musical Rugs + Decor Capsules!
This was our dining room once the aftermath of Christmas decor extravaganza made its way up to the attic. I was struggling to find direction in here that was both functional (I love a set table full o’ pretties, but we use this table for laundry and school, too) and budget-friendly. The first thing I wanted to try was simply swapping out rugs with a little game I like to call “Musical Rugs,” ha! Instead of scratching that itch to switch up the look of a space by buying all new decor or investing in new paint or furniture, I like to first swap out rugs around the house. Makes such a big impact with relatively little effort other than a few minutes of elbow grease. 😉
Another budget-friendly way to approach switching up the look of a space is mindfully collecting a home decor capsule! (See one of my favorites HERE!) Similar to the idea of curating a wardrobe capsule full of your most favorite items that make you feel beautiful daily, creating a decor capsule accomplishes the same thing: quick and easy redecorating with items you already know you love and that go well with your home’s style!
For the dining room, I spent zero money redecorating! Instead, I went out in my garage and grabbed some of my vintage bottle collection, a few old books in blues and greens and used those to accent a beautiful painting that was a gift from my husband a few years ago! These items aren’t new, but they definitely scratched the itch for a new, fresh look in the space on a budget. Consider collecting a group of items for your home that could mix and match in different rooms, and then you’ll be able to pull those pieces to switch up a space quickly and easily…without needing to go shopping!

The rug on the right that I used to refresh the space is from Well Woven Rugs, and it’s the Ciato Vintage Blue in 8×10! Check out my whole Cotton Stem Collection with Well Woven HERE!
