The living room is better arranged and has a much warmer feel. A new area rug and various decorative accessories were added to pull together the furniture pieces, and brighten it up. Not bad for less than $300!
The pets have been relocated, opening up this space quite a bit. New furniture pieces, accessories and paint add depth, and now the sun can shine in, thanks to the removal of those dark window treatments.
The bedroom has been transformed into a light and spacious area and boasts new bedding, fresh wall paint and carpet. It ate up half the budget at $1,045, but created a view that could sell the house all by itself.
drywall and paint $170
window treatments $220
decorative accessories $400
