    I moved back home this year to go to school locally. When I came back my brother was in my old room and I was sleeping on the couch. I decided to re-do a roomin the basement. My budget was around 500 bucks, Here is what I did... bought almost everything off craigslist except the mattress which was mine from before.I learned how to do everything off google [​IMG]

    Ikea Bed Frame-$100
    Flooring + underlay-$150
    Couch-$50
    Chair-$25
    Paint-$50
    Table-$20
    Wicker Chair-Neighbors Garage with free sign on it
    Chest with the speakers on it- Neighbors Garage with free sign on it
    Plywood to replace section of wall-$50

    I did all the painting and flooring by myself, including new underlay, also had to put up a new walling up along my bed which was a +$#@%

    Took like a month, its usually not that clean. I got a 42 plasma with ps3 in the next room so a tv would be pointless. I am still gonna get one though when Iget my tax money back. No pics of my mom sorry.
