7 Steps to Becoming Your Own Decorator, Step 6: Budget Your Shopping List

You're well on your way to becoming your own decorator, but you've still got a few more things to learn. The next step is to budget your shopping list.
See my advice for budgeting when you

.

To get started, look at your floor plan and figure out where the negative space lies and what you need to shop for. Now, do your research and figure out a price range for each item on your list. For example, you might be able to find a side table on Craigslist for $40 and give it a paint job, buy an affordably priced one new for $130, or buy a high-end one for $400. Prioritize each item on your list. I recommend investing in larger pieces like sofas, coffee tables, and secretaries, and cutting back on smaller furnishings. But, you might also want to invest in a piece of artwork, which you can use as a jumping off point for the design of your room. Figure out how much you can afford to spend, and how much you expect to spend on each item.
