Decorating Our Home On A Budget. basically today we’re going to be talking about how we did great on a budget and if you have been watching my channel for any length of time you know one of my primary focuses our organization on a budget and decorating on a budget.
So I certainly have lots of things that I can share of how we decorated our home on a budget but today I’m going to be focusing on our living room is that that is the room I think where we have the most items that we’ve acquired on a budget I can say that we bought all of them because some of them were free so I’m gonna take you for a living room and point out all the things that I’ve got on a budget alright so here is our living room as it stands today but let me tell you it did not always look like this let’s take a little trip down memory lane shall we this was shortly after we moved in probably the week we moved in and then here’s how it looked maybe a few months after it got a little bit brighter but this is how it looks today you guys can see I’ve made quite a few changes and one of the first things I was this side table we found these at a thrift store and they were originally just a really ugly dark brown color like a seventies and then. Decorating Our Home On A Budget: Living Room
I painted them sort of a bright blue in our first apartment and I really didn’t like it so in our new house I painted them white nice and crisp and clean and I did a little bit of a detail you know separate color that is actually our wall color but again painting anything white totally brightens up a room the next thing is our couch and we actually bought our couch on craigslist back when we lived in New York City and I’m okay buying leather on craigslist i think that’s fine and then I got this pillow recently at hobby lobby for only a dollar twenty the next thing are these built-ins and you guys know I’m talking about these built-ins so many times we took some just regular bookshelves that i found on craigslist they were really ugly and dark wood and we remove some molding and we built up the side so they went up to the ceiling and we painted them white.
And now I just one of my favorite places to display my thrifted items and inexpensive things i find it garage sales I used books and picture frames and you know milk glass of course you guys know I love my middle class just really inexpensive things that look really nice together so now we’re back in the living room and i want to show you the side table that I’ve also talked about so many times this console table we found right here the one on the side of the road we it was just free people were going to throw it away and we totally snatched it up I love it and I just decorate it really simply with things i already all in like things that I find outside like birch bark or things i get a garage sales or on Clarence like the pinecones just really inexpensive things and the last thing i want to show you are these currents that are actually made out of bed sheets you guys I made these when we first moved in because we didn’t have a time and money to spend on curtain so I just used bed sheets and that’s how we pull together this room over the course of three years using inexpensive craigslist or thrifted things so i hope you guys enjoyed seeing how I degree are home on budget and again
