Dining Reveal // Interior Decorating on a $1000 Budget

Dining Reveal // Interior Decorating on a $1000 Budget

Cameron and I moved into our new apartment in February and I've absolutely LOVED decorating our space on a budget. I've found it an enjoyable challenge that I have officially conquered in our dining space. Homegoods, Wayfair, and Craigslist have been my best friends. I've made an " antique picker friend" via Craigslist and I'm pretty sure all the Homegoods associates in the greater Boston area know my name. The only struggle I had was with our dining chairs. I found the shorter ones via Craigslist from a woman in Marblehead. She had purchased them from Wayfair and gave me the link to order more...however, the style was modified and the new model has a significantly higher back. At first, I freaked out, but the combination grew on me. I personally love a mix-matched look and wanted a mix of white leather chairs and ghost chairs, but Cam wasn't in agreement. I figured that given our place is pretty feminine, I would let him win that battle. ;) It ended up being the perfect space to host our first family gathering, Easter.

Flowers + family + feminine decor = one happy blogger.
