9 DIY Designer Home Decor Dupes (save $100’s)
Am I the only one who’s eyeballs almost jump out of their sockets when looking at prices for designer items?
It honestly blows my mind how much people are willing to pay for things, especially for decorative items.
While I can appreciate paying more for quality, I definitely draw the line on home decor.
But that doesn’t stop me from looking at ways I can produce the same item at a fraction of the cost.
Thankfully, I don’t even have to figure out how.
