Balcony Makeover #1: $200 Budget

For this inexpensive makeover, we used a chair we already owned versus buying new, found pre-made curtains that fit the space, and shopped at budget retailers like IKEA and Target. We created a larger rug using a series of small rugs put together. Although it wasn't a blockbuster budget, the space is a massive step up from the original blah balcony.

If you missed the start of this series, check out the original post with "before" photos of the original balcony first.


Here's the cost breakdown for the new additions, which comes out to $204.94. The chair and the sheepskin were purchased years ago, both for a total of $90 (if you want to add that to your mental tally).
