Are you looking for living room decor ideas that are unique, smart, and affordable? I recently gave my living room a makeover, and accessorizing this room was my favorite part!
When trying to come up with my living room design ideas, I realized that I wanted to accessorize with a look of rustic industrial style. I’m a broken record here, but the flea market is the place to shop if you want to fill your room with unique items.
Three different sized jars filled with beans. That is pretty cheap decorating. I placed them on a mirrored wooden tray. The jars did not come with corks, but I found a company online and ordered the right sizes for under $6.00.
Here I used a wicker plate charger underneath the wired dome. I filled it with artificial greenery that looks like moss.
I found these in a local vintage shop. The stories they could tell. The chipped paint is beautiful.
This little gray bench was purchased for dual reasons. It makes for great extra seating when company comes, and it gives little Emma a place to watch out for bad guys.
It is the details that make all the difference! These silver nail-heads give class and character to this little bench. I found this bench at T.J. Maxx for a song.
She is one fierce protector. (In her own mind.)
This tin bucket fit right into my rustic industrial style theme I was going for! It sits on the top of my bookshelf.
I painted this armoire using acrylic paints. Then I gave it a coat of polyurethane. Painting old furniture is the best way to save money while giving something a totally new and improved look!
These knobs were from Hobby Lobby, half off, of course! The yellow color matched the color in my living room window treatments. Perfect!

I love this fan! And it works! Of course, I wanted to use it as an accessory, but hey, if I get hot I’m good to go.
If this lunchbox could talk, I wonder what fabulous stories it would have to share. Don’t just decorate your bookshelf with books! Get creative!
Designing a room that is unique and different takes time. It takes the willingness to go on the “hunt”. I think it is one of the funnest parts of my job!
