Price My Space Party at The Nesting Place!

Price My Space Party at The Nesting Place!

I have decided to join The Nester's Price My Space party and post my still a work-in-progress Family Room. Most of the items in this room was purchased over an extended period of time while I was still living in an apartment. I hoped that when I purchased my first home, I could pull all of the items together for a finished Family Room. I think it turned out fairly well.

This large picture frame was purchased at a local Dallas furniture store for $4o. The clock is a wall vinyl decal with mechanical hands that I picked up from Kohl's for about $13 with a coupon. The tall chest of drawers was also purchased at the same local furniture store for $20. The price was marked down because the finish is peeling on the top and there is a large chip on one of the feet, but I think it adds character to the piece, so I left it as is. After purchasing the item, I found it on the Internet selling new for over $500. The lamp was purchased at Homegoods for $50 and the two finials were bought at Hobby Lobby for $8 each. Total $139

I had to get real creative on this one. The "entertainment center" is actually a desk hutch that I flipped upside down and sat the TV on top of it. I only paid $99 for it in the Clearance Odds and Ends section of a local furniture store. The candle holders and candles were purchased on clearance/sale at Hobby Lobby for about $36 total. The 4 frames were on clearance at Garden Ridge for about $3 each. I'm still searching for some cute baskets to hold the Wii accessories and magazines. The large planter was also purchased at Garden Ridge for $25. In the future it will hold either a large silk tree or a tall dried arrangement. Total $172.

The large frame is a duplicate of the one used to frame the vinyl clock $40. I plan to use this frame to make a large framed mirror using beveled mirror tiles. The cross was purchased at Hobby Lobby on sale for $10. The decorative platter was found at Kirkland's for about $20. Four of the same finials used on the tall chest of drawers were also used on the mantle $32. I made the dried floral arrangement using materials from Garden Ridge for about $50. Total $152.

These faux silk 108" lined drapes were a steal! I purchased them at the Neiman Marcus Outlet Horchow Finale on sale for about $25 each. They actually ending up cost less than the price I was going to spend on fabric and lining to make some similar ones myself. The rod was purchased at Target for $40. The accent chair was purchased at a local DFW furniture store for $199. When I first purchased it, I thought that I would change the gold finish to a warm pecan finish, but it has since grown on me. The lamp is a duplicate of the one used on the tall chest $50. It is currently sitting on the floor until I find a suitable side table. Total $389.

The leather sofa and ottoman was purchased at the same local furniture store for $500 and $99, respectively. I made the pillows using a fabric remnant I found at a local fabric store and trim purchased at Joann's for around $10 each. I also recovered the ottoman in a gold chenille fabric found at another local fabric store for $22. I still have to finish adding the tufted buttons. The 9x11 rug was purchased on EBay for $149 including shipping. Total $790.

Total $1,642. I still need to put some finishing touches on this room (console table for the back of the sofa, an end table for the accent chair, something under the clock frame, a plant in the corner by the entertainment center and maybe some sort of wall art above the TV), but I think the majority of it is done.
