As some of you may know, last May I decided to redecorate the family room on a $1500 budget and a 30-day timeline. That was a major fail but I did get some really cool new furnishing. So here we are two months later and I’m just finishing the mantel. The hard part was keeping to the $20 budget.
I’m so happy with the way it came out. Check out the details below.
I borrowed the mirror from the guest bathroom and covered it with leather fabric I had leftover from my clutch project. I accented the corners with decorative tacks from hobby lobby ($1.99).
The birdhouse is from Hobby Lobby. I painted it with some leftover paint and distressed it with sand paper.
Each year we celebrate Kwanzaa by giving each other handmade gift. Last Kwanzaa, our uncle gave each household a printing he designed. I found the frame stored away in some unpacked moving boxes. The rest is history.
Family Sign & Picture Frames- Free
A very long time ago I purchased a picture frame kit from Bed, Bath, & Beyond, its been sitting in storage so I pull it out and gave it a new home.

A wooden letter from Hobby Lobby ($4.99) covered with family photos printed in black/white and covered with Modge Podge ($5.99). It’s a time consuming project but I love the results.
My mom purchased this plant for me from Pikes. The planter is a peanut can covered in Jute ($1.97). You can check out the tutorial here.
