Living Room UPDATE . yeah typically what I’m showing you is what my clients hire me to do but I don’t often get a chance to show you something that is really affordable and very relatable to everyone today’s episode of fix of Friday’s is where i took a girlfriend of mine shopping we spent a couple hours shopping we spent five hundred dollars and we made over her living room in one day so I offered to help her of course she’s my friend the only next best thing is being one of my kids they get rid of all the time when I got to my girlfriend’s place I was really kind of pleased with what she had this is really a nice big open space room but do you notice something that’s kind of annoying look at the height of the windows compared to the height of this sliding glass door and the transom window this carpet is not an area rug it’s actually inserted into the floor so over here there’s just this like random row of hardwood floors on an angle another issue for me was the way she had the furniture in here it’s actually convertible meaning it lays down goes up does all these different things and they’re kind of futon like as we come around the room we see this opening to the kitchen but again just kind of seemed ill proportion with the height here and then this squatting down.
So low here look at this want she had the wiring for the television to go about the fireplace but it never got put in and over here see the rear end of this thing yeah well that’s not me okay should we talk about the elephant in the room I want to see how I fixed it yeah so here’s the floor plan right here was this kind of strange shape of wood fluorine now because of this cut in the carpet I could not put this directly in the center of that window which I would have liked to and then the second one I put over here and I angled it and I used it folded it kind of like a Shay’s around and just so you know my girlfriend she is wicked on the hoop we found a chest of drawers in the guest room that really wasn’t being used much I thought if we put that underneath that area that looks into the dining room we could actually hang the television above it see how this has that kind of that framed transom look right what if I repeated that by putting picture frames across the top of the window remember we only had five hundred dollars and about six or seven hours someone left me a comment last week which was great.
Interior Design : Living Room UPDATE for $500
I’m not against this is awesome and he said do you always use panel window treatments to line either side of the window because i’m a little over it yes we do a lot of things without window treatments and look this project is the perfect example you don’t need fabric you can create a frame around a window or something that’s much more clean and minimalist the palm trees would kind of faked out that same feeling that I get with window treatment panels and that would give me a little bit of a focal point in this room this is where i put dumbo right here and yes an artist I am let me show you what one day and five hundred dollars can do for your space there we have it look at that isn’t that amazing the difference let’s go from here to here course you have the benefit of my beautiful drawing here moving stuff around and putting it against the wall and then this as a shade doesn’t look amazing who’d have thought that just rearranging them and kind of fluffing them up and putting some pillows on it can make such a difference on the fireplace wall we’re going to have to do something to hide that cord we scoured around the Congo and found a nice piece of art we could put there so here’s where we spent our money we went to the Art frame store where.
If you get a second print you can get it for a penny just in case you want to know what that is leave me a comment below so framed artwork here here’s a response we bought some extra throw pillows and we bought the trees I one of those trees are still alive today let’s hope up the fireplace i was able to use the same frames only instead of hanging them horizontally I put them vertically remember when you do this kind of thing make sure your space in between here is identical and then look how nice this chest of drawers looks here with the television hanging right above it so much cleaner so much nicer as we come back around and look at your first impression when you come into the room look at that for so little money and all it was was just rearranging the furniture and adding some accessories and look who’s here it’s Dumbo I hope you enjoyed this leave me a comment below and let me know if you like this kind of thing where it’s easy simple quick and relatable or if you prefer to see the really high end luxury stuff doesn’t really matter i’m going to show you both but I want to hear what you have to say okay love you guys
