"The $642 Makeover Reveal"

We'll it's 2013 and it's back to the grind.  Let's do this!
 
 
I'm excited to share with you today a truly budget friendly makeover.  The entire project from start to finish was only $642.  While at home, I had the opportunity to do a quick makeover on my Aunt Sarah's upstairs sitting room.  She recently had the room repainted and was looking to give it a fresh update. 
 

 
 We were looking to do something light and airy and well, coastal....
 
 
I shared about the project recently HERE. So without further delay, here it is....

As a courtesy to my clients I don't typically share prices and sources for items used in their projects, but my Aunt was thrilled to let me share with you guys how far you can stretch a few dollars.

I used this great Lowe's sunburst mirror to create a focal point on her small fireplace mantel.  We'll talk more later about this on my next post. 
Lowe's - $28.00

This small Kirkland's lamp was just the right lighting for my Ikea hacked end table. 

Kirkland's $19.99

Seating was essential but the space was extremely small.  We opted for this mocha colored loveseat from Ashley that happened to be on sale at a local discount retailer.

She already had two of these Target seagrass dining chairs and they were the perfect addition to the coastal vibe we aimed to create.

The Ikea nesting tables and these gold sconces were also used.  For $12 each, they were a no brainer.

For just $642 we created an entirely new room with a coastal color scheme, low priced retail finds, a few well placed accessories. Proving once again that design really can be within reach.  
 
Here's to a new year!
