$30 A WEEK ROOM MAKEOVER

Do you guys watch the Nate Berkus show?  I have to admit that I never have a chance to catch it and I don’t have TiVo so if I do see an episode or shall I say clip from the show, its usually on his website. 

I was on Pinterest this morning and came across a dining room and when I clicked on the source, it took me to the Nate Show website.  Of course I got to clicking through the site and I came across this clip about Nate showing a guest how to decorate a space with $30 a week.  What the smurf?!?! I can do that!!! And I think if I did it this way, I can actually complete my family room! AND I think that if my husband sees me putting the room together slowly but surely, he’ll pitch in and add the flatscreen and new carpet. 

 






Did you watch the clip? Come on, click on the clip. I’ll wait

Ok, see what I’m talking about?  I bet we all can do this for at least one room in our house, right??? Because many of the pieces I want for my living room are from Ikea, this plan is PERFECT for my family room.  Shoot, it would even work for my bedroom and the boys room.  What about a Master bathroom? This may be the way I decorate for now on! And because I am a DIY’er, I’m sure it would take me no time because everything won’t have to be new!  Now it’s just a matter of staying focused.  Y’all know I bounce around a bit (ok, A LOT!!). 

So do you think you can put a room together on $30 a week?  Who’s down for a challenge? That would be FUN!

Happy Saturday guys!

I really like this idea! My family room is in need of a makeover too. It's currently the "man cave", with movie posters and such. I think if I slowly start adding new stuff in there my husband will hardly notice the change. HA!

It'll be interesting to see what you come up with. I have no doubt that you can do it.

I could one up Nate and do the room on $30 total if they already have the basics (i.e. sofa, table)
