lately i’ve been thinking about decorating on a budget, most likely due to the limited budget that billy and i are living on right now. there are wonderful benefits to building your own business, but one of the disadvantages is the lack of income in the beginning. Any the money you do make goes right back into the company.
so…i thought, what better way to design on a budget than to buy everything off ebay and craigslist. i thought i’d start with a living room.
here’s the plan…
and here’s the breakdown…
collage of architectural prints from ebay for $9.99 each
a few accessories from ebay ranging from $39 - $129(click on the individual accessory to go to the direct link)
and you can have all this for a grand total of $1700. that’s a whole living room for less than $2000. you can barely get a sofa for that these days. i didn’t take into account shipping for some of these larger items, but if you wanted to save on shipping charges you could try to locate the larger pieces on the craigslist in your own area.
