Our friend Melissa has a lake house on Lake McQueeney (a lake outside of San Antonio.) She asked Corrin and I if we could help her spruce it up a little “on a budget.” When she and her husband bought it, they inherited all of the furniture in it. Some of the furniture is great and other pieces are a little dated.
Melissa and I shopped at two places: Garden Ridge (now called At Home) and Target
Melissa spent about $1100 at At Home (she bought a recliner, another sitting chair, and a TON of wall pictures/accessories.
She spent about $600 at Target and got the rest of the things we needed (towels, couch covers, decorations, etc. Here are some pictures of the before and after.
Living Room Before: Melissa hated the chair on the side of the couch and the western looking throw pillows. We stopped at Goodwill and donated the sitting chair and throw pillows.
Living Room After:
We updated the living room by placing a huge painting and two metal art pieces on the wall. We changed out some of the throw pillows on the couch. We added few cute nautical theme items on the tray from Target and finished the room with the new leather recliner (that was only $175!)
Kids TV room area after
The pictures make the couch covers look pink but they are really tan. The two side throw pillows are a green sea foam color. A navy blue rug will look amazing in this room.
Melissa is going to add wire play baskets on the floor under the three mirrors.
Yellow Bedroom Before
This bedroom is great. Melissa did a great job purchasing cute yellow bedding at Target. We just finished it off with a few pictures over the bed and a new mirror over the dresser.
Yellow Bedroom After
The two pictures above the bed were from At Home
Blue Wall Paper Bathroom Before:
Melissa does not have the time right now to mess with the wallpaper so she is keeping it for now. We knew that we needed to change out the shower curtain and get some white towels.
Blue Wall Paper Bathroom After:

Master Bedroom Before:
The only think Melissa wanted to change with the Master Bedroom was the picture above her bed and a pink chair on the side (that she donated to the Goodwill).
lovely pink chair…lol
Master Bathroom After
The collection of stuff above the bed is not finished. She is going to add two more pieces to it.
The new chair and pillow came from At Home.
Kids Bunk Room Before:
The kids bunk room is awesome. There is a bunk bed on the other side of the room. Melissa got the coral bedding from Marshalls. She just bought a painting for the wall and a small blue side table for the left bed.
Kids Bunk Room After:
Wonderful backyard view
