    27 Cheap Things That'll Help Your Entire Home Look Fancier Than It Really Is

    Gorgeous finds, each and every one $30 or less.

    1. A striped damask sheet set made of silky-soft microfiber so you can fall asleep a princess and wake up a queen.

    2. And a plush, velvety blanket to layer on top to keep your winter nights cozy and luxe like a suite in a high-end Vegas hotel.

    3. A 78" roll of marble contact paper you can carefully apply to basically almost anything — countertops, old bar carts, fireplace tiles, Ikea coffee tables, dollar store trays, and so much more — to give it a dazzling new finish.

    4. And a roll of removable peel-and-stick wallpaper because it makes it easy to create a high-design accent wall without spending the high-design cash...and all over the course of a single weekend, or less.

    5. A set of three floating bookshelves that will transform all your favorite novels and cookbooks into works of art you can enjoy every single day.

    7. A collapsible but sturdy rope-handled fabric bin ideal for storing things like your throw and those decorative pillows you love...especially if you know the other people you live with will just let everything fall on the floor.
