DIY Apartment Tour

DIY Apartment Tour 2015

   

Living fabulously doesn’t have to cost you a fortune. Take a tour of my low budget DIY apartment!

As a student, I can’t afford to buy expensive furniture and fancy decor, so I made most of it myself! Using Pinterest  for inspiration, I hunted down used furniture from Kijiji, re-finished the pieces or built some of it completely from scratch! Revamping old furniture or building it yourself is a great way to save money and customize things to look exactly the way you want if you have a specific vision. I ended up building my own coffee table and matching side console table which cost me under $70 each for wood and stain materials. Plus they came out looking super rustic and cool!

I wanted my apartment to have a bright, happy, and zen type feel so I made sure to look for a place with lots of windows for natural light and a balcony (since I don’t have a backyard). I also decorated with lots of green houseplants to really liven the space up and chose a white theme with bright coloured accents for the bedroom.
