With the economy as it is today many of us are not spending on the more frivolous purchases such as decor items. The desire to reuse as much as possible and wanting to make our homes uniquely reflect our personalities rather than looking like everything was purchased at one store has inspired many to come up with some wonderfully inventive decor items we can all do in our own homes.
I went hunting around and found some simple ideas I felt would inspire you. I hope you find the ideas as refreshing and exciting as I do!
This organized corner is a simple way to spruce up a laundry room/mud room inexpensively while staying stylish. Of course, I'd use some felt or other cushioning fabric to protect your boots from getting marked up from the office clamps but they make for a very inexpensive way to help keep their shape!

Another great storage idea using cereal boxes! Imagine the fun you could have with the kids designing their own storage boxes for their bedrooms.
