Affordable Home Decor Projects for Newlyweds


If you are a newlywed and are looking for an affordable way to brighten up your apartment or house, using vinyl decals is the way to go. They are great when you are not allowed to paint too. All you have to do is pull them off when you are ready to move!



I had been saving items for a few years to add to my kitchen once I found the time to paint it. Right before Christmas I decided this was the time to get it done. Finally!!



So, I began this project by placing a fresh coat of paint on the walls. If it were not for the need to paint, I could have just started by applying the decals to the painted walls. Unfortunately, there was a need to paint so that is where I started.

The theme for my newly decorated kitchen was going to be a "Coffee" related one. So, I took a look at the items I had already collected, and decided what to add in vinyl. The first place I started was with the Coffee picture. I added words to fill in the space around the picture.



After that, the surrounding wall space seemed blank. A few years earlier I had purchased a few hand towels with coffee sayings on them. I decided to go with that lead and had sayings created for two of the walls that were opposite of each other.





Once those two walls were finished, I looked at the fourth wall and decided it too needed a little something. I began to research other coffee related words that would be found at coffee shops. They did not have to be coffee, but words that you would see if you were in a shop. This is where I found the four words used on the final wall.



The last vinyl that was added were a few polka dot coffee mugs. They were randomly placed to add a little touch the walls below. These coffee mugs are so cute!





After this was all finished it was time to put out the rest of the accessories collected. I had been working on mosaic pieces for weeks prior to the re-decorating.
A few are used as display pieces and a few are used as trivets. I then added a few hand towels that I had saved. Now I can use my coffee themed mitts too!

It is still a work in progress as there are more accessories to add, back splashes to install, and a few other minor items to be finished. For the most part it is complete and ready to enjoy, and just in time for the holidays!

Enjoy!
