I Get to Decorate a New Home


OK, wish me luck everyone, this weekend I am embarking on a giant project. My bf is moving into a new house and I get to fill it with stuff! On a shoestring. Like a tiny shoestring to fill a 3 bedroom house. I have hardly been able to sleep I'm so excited.

So my plan: beg, borrow and steal as much furniture as possible (only slightly kidding), then it's all about craigslist. I have 2 tables, a sofa, an expedit bookcase, and a twin mattress all lined up to pick up this weekend for under $500. And they're awesome. After I spray paint them.

I also get to put together some little girls' rooms.

Overall I'm going for simple, homey but still an edge of modern. And I'm going to try to do it all for under $1,500. I have time to finish out the details, just need to get it semi functional this weekend.

Restrictions: we can't paint. Damn. We have to limit how many holes go in the walls. Damn. But that's it.

Tips welcome!

There's a couch sitting on the curb outside my places. Only slightly rained on. That's at least a couple hundred saved right there.
