As promised, I'm back with more on the #guestroomredesign!
Let's talk budget on this #walletfriendlywednesday - specifically how tight I wanted to keep it
As I mentioned in my last blog post, I wanted to upgrade while also downsize in this room. The pieces I chose are much smaller and more versatile than the previous existing furniture. I did this because I wanted to be sure that I could separate and use them in other areas of the house when we move (again!).
I had been price watching for quite a while and knew what I wanted and the budget goals that I had in mind for this room.
By shopping sales like Prime Day, Columbus Day, and clearance items, I was able to score some fantastic deals and free shipping on the side tables, headboard, rug, and console table.
[Pro tip: If you're looking for a TV stand, but working with a smaller space, smaller budget, or simply don't love the look of them, try searching "console tables" or "sideboards" and you'll find a whole world of stylish goodness! ]
The lamps and throw pillows were an EPIC steal at Homegoods (clearance items are SO my jam, yall!) and thanks to Hobby Lobby's half-off sale on wall decor, I was able to pick up 3 sets of honeycomb shelves to create the design above the headboard!
I also shopped my house. Yep, you read that correctly. Sometimes the best deals are the ones you got 5 years ago! (I'm looking at you baskets collecting dust in the attic ) Simply walking around your house and grabbing things from other rooms can make you see those dusty old pictures, baskets, blankets, etc. in a whole new light!
Moral of the story? If you really want to get the deals, you've got to check inventory often, be patient, and think outside the box!
I was thrilled to not only complete this space, but to do it UNDER budget!
Drum roll please....
Goal Budget: $1,000.00 Actual Budget: $450.00
Now, I'm not saying that every project goes this way. There are a LOT of things to consider along the way. BUT, it CAN be done.
So, if you've got big plans on a tiny budget and don't know where to begin. Ask your girl. I'm here for you, friend
