Remember here is her before:
And here is her after!
My mom is currently working on a runner for her which will give a great pop of color and artwork is to come too. I know she worked her fanny off painting after work and on weekends and I think it totally paid off! Looks like a completely different room!
Here are the deets "Diane" gave me on some other suggestions I gave her and some of her own finds!
Lamp (49.99), Mirror (59.99), Cork Holder/Vase thing (12.99): Home Goods
Rug: Home decorators.com ($184)http://www.homedecorators.com/P/Cove_Area_Rug/210/
Chandelier ($198): http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/6-Light-Curved-Iron-and-Crystal-Chandelier/3267051/product.html
Fabric for Chairs ($14), Found it at Joann's, on mega clearance, plus found a 20% coupon as i was waiting online on my phone. Major score :)
For the paint, I used oil-based, benjamin moore in jet black. It was $45...
The chairs i did the Rustoleum 2X in satin black.
I bought new pulls and knobs for the cabinets ($80, home depot). I bought new brackets as well, but realized I could spray them with the rustoleum (the kind for metal and stuff) instead, so i was able to return those woo hoo!
The spray paint, poly spray, etc. all came to about $80 as well at home depot.
Curtains ($266): You all know I tried to talk her out of these pricey curtains! These were a splurge, but the texture of them is gorgeous, and they are so so heavy, and have great blackout capabilities. I justified the purchase because we'll save in heating costs...right?? :) http://www.overstock.com/Home-Garden/Signature-Pearl-White-96-inch-Textured-Silk-Curtain/3846746/product.html
So....everything for under 1000! (989.97 to be exact!!!)
