My Blank Canvas

Yesterday’s DIY post, comes in the wake of one of my roommates moving out (all under good terms- she got engaged). She had the place fully furnished when I moved in, which means when she left she took all the furniture (as she should). This leaves me with a design challenge, and boy do I love those!

From the photo above, you can see she left some items and my other roommate bought a few items to add in. If the photo continued to the left you would see a big empty space where a big dining room table should fit. I spent the past week on craigslist and running around looking for furniture deals. I want to see all my options before I make any purchases.

The above photo is my blank canvas, and since I’m on a TIGHT budget you are about to see the steps in a fabulous/inexpensive re-do.

As of yesterday’s post, you can see I’ve already added some greenery to the bookcase (babysteps). Notice the new curtains? For $50 at Ikea, I got all the curtain gear and it’s worth the price.
