I thought I'd share what I've been up to since there have been no YouTube videos lately. I'm getting to them! I promise. The biggest thing I have been focusing on is getting the new house up to date and in order. We finished the living room today.
There's no furniture or "stuff" in it yet, but it's finished!
Both the living and dining room were done for under $200. We took advantage of Home Depot's paint rebate and received a $10 rebate per gallon of paint. We ended up with $80 back after buying all the paint needed for the house.
The old brass and glass light fixtures were removed from both rooms and replaced with oil rubbed bronze and a more modern frosted glass. They were all found at Home Depot on sale for $15 - $20 each. the fixtures don't match completely, but they match enough to work. The dining room got a new table in it that we found off of a local buy/sell group for $100 (complete with chairs!). The Disney place mats were a gift to me. A few pieces of wall art were bought at Goodwill and Hobby Lobby on sale. All together, it cost around $15.
And that's how you re-do a living room and dining room for under $200. Of course, once the furniture and stuff comes in, I'll tell you the final price.
