Decorating on a budget – Part 1
Posted at 1:50 AM by I am THAT Lady: Lauren
I found it only appropriate to write a few post on how to move on a budget, since I am in the middle of unpacking and settling into my new house. We have a sum of money that we have been saving for the past 9 months, this was specifically for buying a house and decorating. My husband is a very good decorator, he has great taste. I love his taste and so we decorate well together! The kitchen floor in our new house was not our taste, see picture below….
We decided that we HAD to do the kitchen floor before we moved in. If you have little kids you know how impossible it is to have the kitchen out of commission for 2 days.
There are some great 10% off coupons from Lowe’s that you can find in the change of address packages in the Post Office. We headed off to Lowe’s and found some great stick tiles that you can grout. My husband is very handy, so this was a fun project for him. At first we thought that these would be a temporary solution until we could afford a real tile floor. After they were finished we realized that we LOVE these, and that they look just like real tile! The whole project cost under $225 for a whole new floor! Here is the finished project.
Stay tuned for more great deals we have gotten in the clearance section of many of our favorite stores!!
