i decorated: austin, tx – it’s all done!

remember how i worked on my little sister’s new place in austin? well – it was my old place, that i went back to re-do as her new place.

here’s the before….




here it is – all done, paint and everything. i love it. my favorite styling to-date, and as usual- sourced on a budget!

(original redo post here, part 1)  & (original redo post here, part 2)













































everything is stock and secured on the cheap:

  • sofa table ($80) + rug ($199) + picture frame above bar – ikea
  • tv table and ladder used for magazines – nadeau

west elm:

  • coffee table +  trays + bar towels + antlers –  and the chandelier…clearance ($79)

z gallerie

tj maxx:

  • the garden stool + the bar and bar accents+  the zig zag box + the asian foo dog on the lucite base+ the benches with the greek key scroll add a great pop of color and were major wins

other items:

  • lamps were a score from the crate and barrel outlet and the shades from target and under $20
  • the feather balls were left from another project. i just pulled them off of stems and through them in the jar – from hobby lobby

‘make an impact with little cash’ tip:

  • the curtains are from etsy – and a great cheat. instead of spending way too much on full curtains, we just bought 2 panels and used them as accents. we also asked her for a piece of scrape fabric to place in the frame, really ties it all together.

lots of pinning about the redo here
