Today I have another Washington Post (Wa Po) House Calls makeover. Designer Charles Almonte maximized the space in this 550 sq. ft living cum dining room by rearranging furniture, adding wall to wall shelving, using a double duty coffee table/ottoman and versatile pull up side table. The price tag for the room: Wa Po Splurge version – $5,740 and Save version – $3,713 . Now here is my version keeping the Ikea chair, shelves, and lighting the same.
Like it? You can get the look for $1,994 .That is a saving of 46%! The budget breakdown is below.
#1 Wa Po (Save )version – West Elm Crosby Sofa for $1,199
