Living Room Redo

 Being a young married couple, we sometimes find it hard to justify spending money for anything that isn't necessary. However, we both agreed that our living room could use a facelift. We gave ourselves a small amount of money to work with and headed to Ikea to see what we could find. Up to this point in our marriage our decor/furniture has been handed down from family members or been purchased at a thrift store or yard sale.

Here are the before pictures.

Inherited: rug, couch, tree. Thrift Store: white mirror and shelf. Ross/Ikea/TJMaxx: black mirror, table, picture frames, candles.

Yard Sale: table and chairs. Thrift Store: rug and sign above the door. Inherited: plant.

Ross/TJMaxx: curtains and curtain rod.

Inherited: lamp and armoire.

Yard Sale: kitchen table (free) and chairs. TJMaxx: purple jars.
