We love simple changes that have big design results. 
There are many accent and accessory purchases (such as desk lamps
that can have a big impact on a room for not a lot of money. 
If you have a tiny or no budget, consider some great DIY projects 
that cost almost nothing but can change the look and feel of your room.

Here are eight quick and simple changes you can do this week:
Pillows (via)

Add throw pillows to your bed or couch for an instant makeover. 
You can make pillows if you have simple sewing skills.

Lamps (via)

Buy a new lamp or pair of table lamps for your room and 
your space will feel transformed. 
Lighting makes a huge impact on a space. 
If you have no budget, shop your house for lamps you can switch around.
Paint (via)

The workhorse of design, paint can transform not only our walls 
but furniture, frames, accessories and floors.
Lampshades (via)

If you love your light fixtures, consider changing out the shades or 
adding ribbon trim to the edges to make them feel custom.
Hardware (via)

Change out the hardware on your cabinets, bathroom vanity 
or furniture to instantly change the look of the piece.
Instant Wall Art (via)

Frame wallpaper or fabric for instant wall art. 
Bye bye boring wall!
Customize Table Linens (via)

Cloth napkins and placemats can easily be changed with a DIY project. 
Stamp, embroider, or monogram plain napkins.
Tea Towels (via)

Tea towels can add big impact to a kitchen. 
Look for tea towels in bright colors and bold patterns to add pizzazz to your kitchen.
Curtains (via)

Switching out curtains for new ones is another simple change that won't break the budget. 
If you like your existing curtains think about adding a trim or ribbon to the edge or hem.
