OK, so I’m going to be honest here. I once thought that all of the cheap Kmart home decor was just more dust collectors, those things you’d buy on impulse because they were cheap only to eventually become throwaway junk. Well, I’ve changed my tune because I’ve seen how nice some Kmart homewares can look when styled right AND the Kmart hacks you can do with them are so clever, they make affordable Kmart homewares look a lot more expensive than they really were.
Over my break, inspiration struck while I was browsing through some of my favourite Kmart hacks Instagram accounts and I just had to share my finds with you. It’s perfect home decor inspiration to spruce up your home!
**This post was originally published January 2016. Since then, some of these products I have featured are no longer in stock. I have, however, updated each Kmart hack with similar products that are available.
Kmart geometric candle holder turned into a vase
Adding some beautiful flowers to a candle holder gives it a whole new purpose. Unfortunately, Kmart no longer sells the geometric candleholder pictured however, they do have this large luxe hurricane candle holder for $7, it will also make a great vase!
This $29 Kmart side table has been given the ‘luxe’ treatment
A simple addition of marble to the top of this Kmart side table is an awesome Kmart hack to bring a little luxe into a room on a budget. Although the table pictured is no longer available, you can still grab Robin quilt cover – just paint it your colour of choice. How gorgeous is this whole style though? The Robin quilt cover is from Kmart too!
Add some gold bling to the $12 Kmart dipped stool in Pink
Originally you could buy this cute little stool in white and then transform it yourself (as pictured). Kmart no longer sells the stool in white, however, they do come in pink, all you have to do is dip the feet in gold, silver or whatever colour your heart desires!
$7 Kmart copper wire dish rack turned magazine rack
Forget the dishes, there needs to be somewhere for the magazines! Although this copper wire dish rack is no longer available at Kmart, you could do the same thing with a similar rack.
$3 dinosaurs turned into dino planters!
Simply get a small knife, cut a hole, add some succulent mix and some succulents and voila! You have a very cheap and very fun dinosaur planter! A great Kmart hack for the kids.
A Kmart wooden lamp made pretty
This Kmart hack takes a plain white lamp and turns it into something gorgeous for a little girls room. Although the pictured lamp is no longer available, Kmart does stock this wooden lamp with a white shade, the perfect canvas for your own design.
$15 Kmart marble and wood board plus $15 Kmart wire hamper = a side table
Unfortunately both the marble and wood board and the black wire hamper pictured are no longer available at Kmart, BUT, you can get a similar look with this $15 Kmart wire hamper and this $12 Kmart Terrazzo Board.
Bedroom, loungeroom…wherever, how cool is this Kmart hack for a side table!
Kmart lantern turned into a chic vase
Fleur from Our Urban Box turned this simple yellow lantern into something very pretty with a few coats of paint. I’m so disappointed that this gorgeous little piece is no longer available at Kmart, but, it goes to show that just because something is labelled a ‘lantern’ or ‘candle holder’ it doesn’t mean it has to be! Take $12 Kmart Terrazzo Board currently at Kmart for $10, it’d be perfect as a vase, just put a glass in the middle!
