Living room make over for £66!!!!!

So it’s finished.  The living room, toy box and stones are painted, the throws are dyed, the cushion covers and tie backs are sewn and we have a new lamp all for £66!!! Now if you don’t have gloss, throws, spare paint or material to utilise then it will cost you more but I just wanted to show you want you can do by using up what you have and buying the barest minimum.

                      The living room at Christmas: un-dyed throws, grotty cushions, messy shelves, grey wall and stickers
We had already dyed the throws before this photo
