We Furnished Our Home With Mostly Secondhand Finds!
We are getting to work here at the house and I am excited to continue sharing updates with you! One thing that I was very intentional about when moving into this house was how we would furnish it on a budget. You may remember me saying that we sold most of our furniture as we sold our last home. With that in mind, I didn’t want to spend thousands on replacing everything. So instead, I focused on find as much as I could on FB MarketPlace. This was so much more fun than I thought it would be!
How We Spent $200 To Furnish Most Of Our Home…
Here is a breakdown of what I spent and what I found these last few months. We ended up with 3 sofas (one of which we are recovering and I will be sharing more about that soon). We also needed dining tables and found 2. After that we also scored an ottoman, stools, loft bed, 2 bed frames, hall table, closet organizers, side table and dining chairs.
Most recently, I also grabbed a wicker trunk that hides away all of our t.v. equipment.
Here is a peek at my favorite find… This dining table was one of the most expensive purchases I made and I am slowly taking time to seal it. I loved the worn vintage patina and wanted to make sure to keep it. So I started foam brushing a sealer onto it today. It will take 4 days to get 4 solid coats on it but it will be worth it to protect this special piece. I will share more once it is all said and done.

That’s it for today and I can’t tell you how much fun I have had sharing like this. It makes me feel like old times when I started blogging. I would get on here and just share the latest with what was going on at home. It’s not that I stopped doing that… But it just feels special to start fresh and share this new chapter with you.
