Price My Space

Welcome to my Sunroom! Today I'm joining the Nester for :

Today I'm sharing with you the cost of decorating my Sunroom!
I'm glad I have pictures of this room already, since it's all boxed up now, ready for our move :)!

This room really reflects how I decorate, with objects at all different price levels from FREE to more EXPENSIVE. I may have gotten some great deals on some things, but am not afraid to spend some money on items that I feel are worth it.

Let's get started Pricing My Space!

Barn Star: $50 -- I love this barn star! It is HUGE, and looks great hung high on the wall in this room! It was too similar to the wall color when I bought it (Duron's Tobacco Road is the color, BTW), so I spray painted it Heirloom White.

Couch and Chair: $FREE -- Broyhill furniture given to me for free from my sister when she was upgrading her own furniture! Yahoo!! I'm always happy to take free stuff! There's also a matching ottoman, not used in this room.

White Slipcovers: $FREE -- A Christmas gift from my parents. But if you love them, they are from Ballard Designs. I tend to ask for decorating stuff for gifts a lot! :) It really helps my budget!!

The Pillows: $??? -- I can't remember exactly what they would be....I bought the inserts from Pottery Barn (did you know that you can just buy inserts there without the pillow covers?) because they are a gloriously large size which I love! I made the covers myself with a remnant fabric, and the fringe trim came from a fabric store.

The Antique Scale & Cloche: $60 & $24 -- I lovelovelove this piece! Talk about a statement piece! The cloche miraculously fits the top of the scale perfectly! Underneath of it is a green depression glass plate that was $1 at a garage sale, and a rusty garden fairy that was $8. An antique French key hanging from the end was $8, and the nest greenery on top was only around $3 at Michael's.

Linden Glass Tray Table: $around 50 -- I paid only 1/2 price for this Southern Living at Home table when I hosted a party several years ago. I've used this in several rooms in several homes and it's great anywhere I put it!

Coffee Table: $200-something? It's a Broyhill table, and was discontinued, we got it at their NC warehouse for a good deal less than it retailed for.

Sisal Rug: $FREE -- again, a gift a couple of years ago. It's from Ballard Designs, if you're interested.

Black & White End Table: $22 -- From a flea market years ago! It's a sewing machine bottom, and a white chippy shabby painted top. Love this!! The birdhouse on it I bought from the artist at a different flea market for $50. It's huge, and an original!!

Other End Table: $??? -- Just a cheap plywood decorators table covered in white linens I already had.

Potting Bench: $55 -- From an antiques mall. It perfectly fits this little wall! The wire thingy I added to the backside was $16. The accessories on here have been in my collection from through the years, and I don't remember all the prices.

Vintage Mirror: $18 -- From Goodwill

Ceiling Tile Tin: $10 -- From flea market

Wood Architechtural Piece Over Door: $34 -- From flea market, and a favorite piece of mine!

Still with me?!?! LOL :)

The Grand Total:
$609++(for the little things I can't recall)

Pretty good for furnishing an entire room!!!

Those slipcovers worked out great for your furniture. They look like they fit very well~did you have any problem with ordering them and fit?

You sound like me - most stuff packed up; hoping to down-size at some point this year.

I have that little "fairy" near my pond...Last fall, my girls were playing with it..dropped it in the pond...I didn't know it! I sealed the pond and then found her in the Spring when I was cleaning it out!
She is a bit "rusty" but still cute!

Wonderful room!
