Decorating an Entire Main Floor on a Budget

A few years back friends of mine moved into a significantly larger home than what they had previously owned. Gone were the days of tripping over one another and each person’s belongings. More space meant more breathing room and the ability to have friends and family over with ease. There was only one slight problem. They didn’t have furniture for all of their new space. No literally. The entire main floor – living room, dining room and kitchen – was bare.

Enter me! Finding inexpensive home decor is what I do. So armed with a $7,000 I set off to outfit the entire main floor. Guys, the final result is amazing! Check the video above to see for yourself. Here’s a list of how we spent $7,000 to furnish and accessorize their home.
