[home]: Studio/Office SourceBook & Budget

5.31.2015

I still had to share my sourcebook for One Room Challenge reveal of our studio/office/guest bedroom so here it is with some of the more detailed shots that I have not shown before. I wanted to share budget of many finished rooms in our house to help those planning renovations. So far I did not get to it yet but will start with this one.


As I mentioned during 6 weeks of ORC posts, I tried to furnish this room on a strict budget. There was not actually any amount that I gave myself except trying to find everything I needed at the best possible price achieving what I like to call "really good value for money" or something like that. I reused, DIYed, scoured Kijjiji/Craiglist, garage sales, thrift stores, you name it.  This room is a fair size and it needed a lot of items, so finding inexpensive items was a must.

Those who saw before & after of this room can easily guess that we have done a complete gut job of this place. Everything was removed, we put up new insulation, drywall, taping, flooring. It was a family affair, my father-in-law, husband, father, brother, HVAC and electrician friend, everyone pitched in. I don't have full costs of that as we pretty much spent only on materials for two rooms (same was done to playroom next to this room) just overall number of about $1000.

Big chunk of decorating budget went to bed ($200) and rug ($200). While I could probably find a cheaper rug and DIY a cheaper bed, I really love these and didn't mind spending on them especially since they can both be easily re-purposed in other areas of the house if needed.

Leave me a comment if you have any question about any of the above.
