Price My $pace Party. . .

The Nester is having a price my space party!

As usual, I am late to the party but I still wanted to play along!

Here is my Living Room. It's nothing fancy but it's home to us.

Unfortunately, we rent so we are unable to paint the walls, so just imagine some luscious color on the walls!

Believe you me, if we buy this house, painting the walls is gonna be the first thing that happens! :)

Here is what you see when you face, into my living room.

This is my couch.
I think I paid about $1200 for it a few yrs ago and the green pillows are some I got from Big Lots. They were part of the Jennifer Farrell collection and I think I paid about $15 a piece for them.

This is our only window in the room.

The drapes and rod are part of the Better Homes and Gardens collection from Walmart. I paid about $30 total for the drapes and another $20 for the rod.
The "It's a Wonderful Life" sign was bought from a seller on Ebay and I think I paid about $30 for it.
The floral arrangement was free and done by Jeff's grandmother.
Ok, I take that back, it did cost me a little bit of hard labor but it was well worth it. Now, I just need to find the perfect place for it.
The clock and apothecary jar were gifts, and I think I paid about $40 for the lamp from Lowe's.

Here is the matching chair to my couch. I think we paid about $700 for the chair and ottoman. This is Jeff's fave spot. It's directly in front of the tv, so we all clamor for it! The coffee table came from Value City Furniture and I am not sure but I don't think we paid more than $125 or so, for it. It's about 10 yrs old but it's still holding it's own. I am going to take the trim off of it to make it less "country" looking.
The barn stars above the chair came from Kirkland's and were about $20 for the set of 3. I love Kirkland's!

This is to the left of my front door and becomes the "catch all" for keys, mail, etc.

I love, love, love the distressed wood table. It was given to us and we have several pieces that match it. I seriously love these pieces and can't wait to have creamy colored walls for it pop against, so you can see just how gorgeous it is!
The mirror came from Wal-mart and I paid $25 for it. The little table lamp was $15 from Kirkland's. The frames are from World Market and I think I paid $20 for both of them. The Pottery Barn pocketwatch clock was an Ebay find for about $10 and the mosiac vase from Pier One was a gift. I also, made the white framed monogram hanging by the door. Cost me a whole $1 to make! :) The key hook is just something I found at Big Lots for $3 or so.

Here, is our fireplace and TV armoire.
As you can see, our mantle is a work in progress. The clock above the fireplace was free, as I won it, in a Dirty Santa game. The votiveholder on the mantle came from TJ Maxx for $7.00. The hanging star was a gift and the candlesticks (with no candles, mind you) are some I recently painted and I got them from Kirkland's for about $15.00. The fireplace screen came from Target and I got it for about $25. The little red H was an Ebay find for about $3.

The armoire was also free, it was given to us by Jeff's grandmother and it's about to get painted very soon! I am thinking an antique white?! Most of the stuff on the top of it were gifts but I did get the tall grass from Target for about $10.

Lastly, here is our corner unit that matches our console table. Once again, I love this piece. The candleholder on top was $4.99 from Linens and Things. I was excited about that one! The other accessories have just been finds from the years. I honestly don't think I have a total of $25 worth of stuff on that piece. Lots of clearance deals!

Thanks for checking out my living room! Can't wait to see your spaces! :)

when we finally move i will be taking lots of hints from you! my husband wasn't happy that i said "no" to his southwest motif...but i have made it clear that i'm decorating it the way i want! (right down to a certain paisley rug...he said no, but i put it on my birthday list-ha!). i love the barn stars too. not sure where i'll be able to find some, our kirkland's closed...

I LOVE painted paneling!! Doesn't the owner know how much better the house would be if they let you paint?!! You've definitely achieved a cozy living room - it really shows through in the pics.
