AW: Living room makeover!! PIP

We didn't hate our living room before, but I was so ready to move away from the "red" in there.  It was too bright, and I didn't feel like it accurately represented our new, more mature style.  


My budget was $200 for everything, and not a penny more. 


Here is the before:


We didn t hate photo 3162043-1


And the after:


We didn t hate photo 3162043-2


Paint: $30


Pillows: $50 for 5 (On addititonal 50% off discount from Steinmart)


Rug: $150 (Walmart), -$50 giftcard, so I paid $100.


Art on left wall: Already owned the frame, paid a few dollars to AC Moore to cut the matte for us.


 


Just wanted to share :)  I love when people post these and seeing how others are decoring their home!!

Wow!!  What a difference!  I love both but your new living room is so calm and relaxing!  Great job with just $200!  You could be on one of those shows like design on a dime! :)


PS: amazing price for that huge area rug too!

october9---haha!  thanks!  I was soooo happy when I found it.  I love to hate Walmart, but I also love to love it.  I was looking for one at Target that was very similar, but 2x the price.  so Walmart it was!
