I friend of mine got a really good deal on a builder "track" home last summer in the north Georgia mountains. She asked me if I would help decorate it in exchange for some relaxing visits. I am all about the "barter"[although, I don't do chickens!] and especially for a fun place to go. Now....you know the budget was VERY small....but that is right up my alley. As I have learned from reading so many blogs....the thrill of the hunt and finding a bargain is the "high" we want! So, off we go like heat seeking missiles to see what we can find. Our first stop is Goodwill. We needed at least 2 couches, and we scored at our first stop.
I am sorry to say that I do not have a before picture of this bad boy. This was last August way before I started documenting my every move in search of a "blog" post! But I will tell you it was 300.00 and in great shape except the cushions. We high tailed it over to the fabric store and found this in the remnant area. The body of the sofa was kind of an ultra suede so this chenille was perfect. After it was all over we had about 500.00 in it. Of course the pillows helped [kind of like the LBD when you add the pearls and shoes!]
Next was Scott's, Homegoods, and Target.
This last picture is the kitchen.
I really believe that lack of money on these projects is the "mother of invention"...as they say, don't you?
