Budget Friendly Decorating Ideas for Farmhouse Style Rooms

Budget Friendly Idea No. 1: Ikea Ektorp Sofas in Living Room

Ektorp sofas from Ikea are easy on the budget, and slipcovered with custom white slips from Bemz, they are suddenly luxurious. I love Bemz, and commissioned Belgian linen slipcovers made for my Ektorps at our second home in Arizona.

    I have Ektorps in my house. They are comfortable, and I love that I can wash the slipcovers (which are white).
    On a budget, always look for second-hand and vintage first. As much as I admire Ikea’s knack for design and emphasis on keeping prices affordable, you can often find better quality at lower prices by shopping flea markets and online. Some people just don’t want grandma’s farmhouse dining set, yet with a little paint it would look great and it’s probably solid wood. There are so many people who look at this stuff–like a single decorated plate–and say, “junk.” And that’s where you hit gold.

      Great advice as always! I was shocked that the Ektorps were actually comfortable when we bought them for the Arizona place. I have always been a thrift store and fleamarket girl, and both of our kids have been hooked since childhood. Just writing about it gives me the itch to hunt for gold! 🙂

    Is there a source for the round ottoman shown in the #1 photo. A different ottoman appears in subsequent photos. I am looking for a round upholstered ottoman to go with my family room sectional.
    Thank you!

      Ha! I knew I should have added that sweet tufted cocktail ottoman! Here it is, I added it to the post, and I think I need it too since it’s so versatile: http://shrsl.com/xjzj. Happy weekend, friend.
