Desk - IKEA - $150, $20 paint
Chair - World Market - $90 after coupon and points
Diplomas - $120, hubby's diploma was framed and paint by his parents
Frames - accumulated over the years, maybe $20
Computer equipment - $600 mac mini (I love how little space it takes up on the desk), $150 monitor, $200 printer, speakers (The Husband bought them before we got married so, that is like free, right?)
Desk lamp - $30? I bought in 2001, don't remember anymore
Baskets under desk - World Market, guessing $5 for the little blue ones, $8 for the big one. $18
Filing cabinet - Kathy Ireland, I think it was around $300 in 2005
Corkboard - frame was $5 at a yard sale, corks free! (well, after paying for and drinking the wine), 97 cent can of matte black spray paint (Walmart) , maybe 75 cents in hot glue (yay! for the Nester re-introducing me to hot glue - I had forgotten how great this stuff is)
Photo/Storage boxes - leather one was a clearance item from Pottery Barn for $50 (some clearance, right?), others from Marshalls and Ross, $5-10 each
Leaning shelves, JCPenney, $99 each
Various trinkets and books (i.e. Collection of Crapola) - I have no idea what they cost, many were gifts. I do remember the little birds at the top are from the Grand Canyon. And the paintings are mine (so free!). I'll say maybe I've spent $100 on stuff and the rest were gifts.
Paint - one can of Behr, don't remember the color name at the moment - $20
Mistreatments! - the rods were free - the previous owners left them in various rooms so I repurposed them. Fabric, tassles (both from JoAnn Fabrics), glue, curtain clip rings (lowes, $5 each pack of 8-10), maybe $80 total.
And when the Saltillo tile (from Home Depot) is finally laid in this room (on schedule for... yeah, September - this is what happens when you do it yourself), the flooring will be about $150 including tile, mortar, grout, sealer, baseboards, etc. Does not include cost of my sanity. But it's my choice.
Total very ballpark, unscientific price: $2600.
Big thank you to The Nester for hosting!
