I seem to be on a role showing you how I decorate every room in my house on a budget. I showed you my family room, guest room and hall bathroom and now I will show you my living room. This room is actually a dinning room for most people but I don’t have a dining set so I use this room as a front living room. I am not in love with this room but I am content with it right now but I am always on a hunt for new things to change it up.
Here is a couple different views of the room. I painted it Fairway Oaks by Benjamin Moore which I love. The color is not tot light or too dark. We went with a pearl finish.
I got that super cute table at a garage sale for $30, that picture for $6 (I spray painted the frame) and the frames were about $10 total.
I love those FACES!!!!
I spray painted the vase. I think that it was $3.00 and I got that POTTERYBARN lamp for $15.00 Can you believe it??? Love it!
That lamp was also spray painted and I think that it was only $5.00 and the table was $10.00. (I painted the top black, the legs were already black)
I LOVE these candle holders, POTTERY BARN, of course! They were only $8 total!!!! They are almost my favorite things in the room.
I also love this clock!!!! Again, like EVERYTHING else that I buy, it’s from a garage sale and it was only 20 bucks!!! Ok, they had $40 on it but I asked for $20. She said yes!!!! It can’t hurt to ask. (TIP: I almost ALWAYS ask them to come down in price and most of the time they do!!!!!!)
Wasn’t that beautiful?
Ok, now the mirror. I actually did buy this from Menards. Don’t worry it was on clearance for only $80. It was silver and gold but I spray painted in black.
I love the details!
I covered the pillows. I bought all of my fabric from Wal-Mart.
The couch was FREE!!!! It was a gift from my husband’s Grandpa!
I bought this chair for only $20. I got matching ones, the other one is used here.
This is a Waverly rod from the Goodwill for only $20, the rods are from Linin’s ‘n Thing for $20 and I made the curtains with fabric that I already had. I am really happy how they turned out!
I put on new shades that were $1 each.
Here are some really embarrassing before and afters.
Before. Gross!!! I seriously don’t know what I was thinking!!! ha ha!
After. Way better, I hope!!!! I am happy with it! And I did it all on a budget!!!!
After looking at these before and afters…..I am liking the “after” way better than when I started writing this.
