I spent a few hours last Sunday moving our living room furniture around (just for a change lol) to create a warmer look for the fall and upcoming winter season. It struck me that I have decorated this entire room with my finds from thrift stores, Craigslist, side of the road pieces or other sources. I added it up and I believe the total spent is less than $500.
The Breakdown: (items highlighted are linked to their original post)
Sofa – $100.00 (down filled from Hickory, NC but mine via Craigslist)
Slipcover – Gift (awesome!)
Rug – $130, Ikea
Small Red Persian Rug – Gift (another awesome!)
Curtains – $3.79 per panel
Coffee Table – $14.99
French Chair – Free, found on side of road in pieces
Large Wooden Chair – About $10.00
Round Drum Table – Free, found in trash
Two Small Tables (I pushed together under the mirror) – $14.99 ea.
Pottery Barn Mirror – on sale for appx. $120
Trunk – $3.00
Large Antique Chest – $30.00
All the knickknacks/baskets, etc. (except frames) are thrift store finds and all under $5.00 ea.
I think the most expensive items in the room are my frames and the Homegoods Candle on the mantel. I have bought the frames randomly throughout the years and don’t have a price tag for them.
I’m sure my living room may not be everyone’s taste. I would love new matching chairs and a few other upgrades. However, it suits my needs and is warm and cozy for the kids to cuddle up on the sofa and read in front of the fire. Home!
