Furnished by bargains
Let me explain. We don't have much money and sometimes being the only bread winner in the house can be tedious but I love a bargain me. And our house well its furnished by bargains or cheaper.
Living room -
Sofa £80 - CRAFT - local furnisher recycling
2 Chairs - free - courtesty of Neb's grandad's house
Sewing Table/ Coffee Table - free - courtesy of Neb's grandad's house
Tv Stand - free - given to us when a friend one a new tv but already had a stand
Laminate floor - free - taken up from house Neb was working on and was going to be thrown!
TV - £50 - CRAFT - wide screen but not flat or LCD. Waiting for better ones to come in to CRAFT so we can trade up!
Table and chairs - free - courtesy of Neb's grandad's house
Sofa (and pull out bed) - free - courtesy of Neb's grandad's house
Sideboard - free - courtesy of Neb's grandad's house (also filled with Neb's grandparent's plates and a tea set that we got from CRAFT but for free as Neb's mum bought them!)
Washing machines x 2 - one from Neb's grandad's house and one that came with the house!
Bookshelf - £30 - CRAFT
Most of the things in the kitchen came with the house so we didn't need to pay for it but we also have a glass cabinet in the back of the kitchen which you guessed it was free and came from Neb's gran dad's house
To be laminated - laminate currently stacked in it was again free and will be done at some point (or I will burn it!)
Bel's bed - used to belong to friend's of ours who were giving it away on FB. They lived next to Neb's parents so they delivered it for us.
Chest of Drawers - used to be mine when little, I stripped it and painted it and now it lives in Bel's room though we do need new handles in it
Blanket Chest - my mums - will be moving out of Bel's room when we find some room in ours!
The wardrobe and bookshelves came with the house and are a pain as I would like to get better ones in!
Car's toddler bed - free - when Bel was small we were looking round for cheap ones when a mate said he had one left from his son so ta da we got it
Car's chest of drawers - again free - they where selling the last house we moved out of and so were told to take anything we wanted so we did!
The wardrobe and shelves came with the house and as a small room again are a pain!
Bathroom and Toilet
No freebies here
Wardrobe and bookshelf came with house
Bed, one bookshelf and dressing table - freebie from Neb's grandparents house
So as you can see, freebie central in our house! And to be honest I don't think there's anything wrong with it. I would love to get new furniture but when there are recycling places where you can buy things that are pre-loved as we like to call them then why not!
