Add Interest With Color

Paint and wallpaper (just a small amount will work) are two inexpensive options for spicing up a bland bookcase. To save money, use paint you already have on hand (mix a dark color with primer for a toned-down version) or purchase a sample size container. Other stylish options: sheet music, fabric, gift wrap or natural cork. Tip: Because this is such a small area, consider using a bold pattern or saturated color here.

Shop for Storage

The bulk of the budget will be spent on storage containers. Shop discount stores for magazine holders, lidded boxes in assorted sizes, expandable file folders and other containers to hold the items you wish to store. Simple designs and classic colors are best. Try to pick just one color for a clean, unified look.

Create Labels

If your purchased containers come with a label, use this as a template when printing computer-generated font onto patterned scrapbook paper or make your own handwritten versions.
