Oh my, I’m so excited to share this week’s Friday Fluff up with you! My friend Staci recently re-did her dining room and it’s just beautiful. She kept the original furniture she had, but re-upholstered her chair cushions, changed the rug and added (beautiful!) new curtains. The results are just perfect!
Here’s a peek . . .
(I can’t believe I didn’t get a better picture standing further back, but this is an idea!)
Here’s where her money was spent . . .
$48 for fabric to recover her chairs
$250 for rug from Joss & Main (if you’ve looked at the cost of high end rugs lately, you know this was a fantastic price!)
$125 curtains from Joss & Main
My absolute favorite trick that Staci shared was how she hung her curtains. She had purchased the new (super cute!) navy curtains from Joss & Main, but they allowed a lot of light to pass through (getting curtains heavy enough to block light can get so expensive.) So, she left up her old silk curtains underneath, and it adds so much weight to the newer curtains – so smart!
Here’s the breakdown of her expenses:
- Fabric $49
- Joss & Main Rug $250
- Joss & Main Curtains $125
- Candles $9.99 from Ikea
- Total $523 – not bad at all for a complete updated dining room!
I absolutely love what she was able to do, and the best part is that she didn’t have to update any of her furniture (which is where most of your money can easily go!) Thanks so much Staci for sharing with us – it looks beautiful.
Curious how I fluffed up our dining room for under $150? Check this out.
This post is linked up to Thrifty Thursday and Follow Our Thrift – thanks for the opportunity to link up! I’d love for you to join me over on Pinterest (I love that place!) If you have a blog and have done a little fluffing in your home, I’d love to see it, so leave your link in the comments section. Also, if there’s a craft you’ve seen on a website that you’re hoping to make, feel free to share that link as well (I’m always looking for new ideas!)
