Goal Credenza Hack + Furnished Household Room

On my final go to to Florida, I made extra modifications to the household room. Once we purchased the home it got here with furnishings that didn’t go well with my model, so I bought the sofas and donated the outdated media towers to begin recent.

The model I used to be going for was coastal meets mid century fashionable. I wished it to be mild and brilliant, full of cozy furnishings, crops, and artwork from my travels. My purpose was to drag a comfortable area collectively on a price range!

Beneath are outdated footage from the true property itemizing, you possibly can see the large leather-based lounge sofas and dated media heart I began with.

I bought the sofas to a neighborhood resident for a lounge he had arrange for his youngsters. To switch them, I bought a white leather-based midcentury model couch and loveseat from IKEA, sources beneath.

All of the crops are fake since we don’t reside in the home full time. I sourced them from Michaels, Goal, and House Items. Once I discover a good faux, I purchase it!

I used to be trying all over the place for a protracted credenza for the TV wall and was undecided for weeks. I contemplated a excessive finish model or IKEA hack however after I got here throughout these woven rattan TV stands and I believed I’d simply mix two of them to get the look I wished. The scale have been good, with two they might prolong alongside all the spans of the wall.

The one complication was that I didn’t need the 2 black steel bases subsequent to one another as a result of that may appear to be… two retailer purchased media stands pushed up subsequent to one another. 🙂

So I got here up with another plan. As soon as I had assembled them, I added mid century model couch legs to the bases (spray painted white) to present the credenza just a few extra inches of peak and an ethereal elevated look.

The seaside and palm paintings is all from my print store, all in black and white, see sources beneath.


Right here’s one other price range hack! I lined one of many white finish tables that got here with the home with peel and stick grasscloth wallpaper to present it a coastal look.

Once we have been entertaining right here for Thanksgiving, I switched issues up a bit. Right here’s a glimpse of the area with just some festive vacation accents.



In 2023 I’ll make two extra modifications. We’re changing the flooring so the carpet will go and instead luxurious vinyl plank all through the home. I additionally want to switch the present vertical blinds with curtains on a observe system. In the meantime, I’m happy with the comfortable furnished area I created on a price range!
