For this setup, adding a loveseat and comfortable cushions make for a much better seating arrangement than just the one chair in the previous version. Keeping the spending low here meant finding pre-made curtains that fit the space, and shopping at budget retailers like IKEA and Target. A series of small floor mats were combined to cover more floor area.

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


Here's the breakdown of cost for the new additions, which comes out to $426.97. 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).
