Ballin' on a Budget by Julie Patterson | Part #1: Living Room Makeover

I feel as though everyone has at one point dreamed about buying a fixer-upper property and make it into their dream house or selling it to make big money. That was my dream. I spent nine months of house shopping before I found my not-so-perfect home. It had everything I hated starting with parquet flooring, reminding me of every apartment I lived in during college. That didn’t stop me. I strongly suggest if you are a first-time home-buyer not spending all your money on fancy furniture and upgrades unless, of course, you can afford it. If you are anything like me, my bank wasn’t stacked after purchasing my home. Therefore, I had to be crafty about upgrading my home.

Now a little background about me. I am not handy. Yes, my dad is handy, but he doesn’t live close. As things turn out, I am a good delegator. I did it all on a budget. I got my family and friends together to work for pizza & beer. We even had fun doing it. 

Let's start with the living room.
