I absolutely love a challenge, so when Better Homes and Gardens asked me if I wanted to refresh my living room for $250 with their line sold exclusively at Walmart, of course I had to say YES!
This room has been the only space in my home that I haven’t fully revealed on my blog. There were just a couple key pieces I needed to make this room feel complete… a photo gallery wall in the stairwell, a new area rug, and some little finishing touches throughout the room.
Let’s just say this room needed to be refreshed.
So first on my list was a gallery wall. I spotted some antique bronze frames from Better Homes and Gardens at Walmart (bonus: they already came with matting).
Under $100 for all the frames and it completely filled up my large empty wall.
I also found a gorgeous 5x7ft suzani medallion rug for only $69. It had all of the colors I was looking for, including the sea salt paint color that is on my fireplace wall.
Next up was spicing up the area around my fireplace.
I added a little table to the left side of my brick hearth and bought a little white BHG kitchen serving bowl for $4.48 for the top. I filled it with some moss rock vase fillers ($3.50 per bag).
And I needed to fill a little shelf I had on the right side of my fireplace.
So what else did I spy in the Better Homes and Gardens kitchen aisle? A little cow creamer. So cute that I had to put this on display… yep, in the living room. No one will no that it’s a creamer… or that I snagged it for only $5.
And these lanterns I instantly fell in love with. Under $30 for the both of them. Aren’t they just gorgeous?
My sofa table behind our couch was looking a little bare…
…so I found some amazing speckled candlesticks for under $18 total. And of course I had to pick up the LED candles for only $3 each. With a little kid in the house, these are a mom’s best friend.
So if you’re adding up the costs in your head, that’s only $240 for all the new statement items I added to my living room (including a brand new gallery wall and an area rug!).
Yeah, I’d still like to switch out that red chair for something else. Oh well, I guess that’s for another day (or makeover).

Just beautiful! It looks so light and fresh. I especially love those moss covered rocks and those gorg candlesticks. I can only imagine what I could do with $1000 if you did all of that for less than $250!!
THanks so much Steph!

Wow! It is amazing that you did all of that for $240! I see a trip to Wal Mart in my future. (By the way, I love the red chair as it adds a splash of color and brings out the color in that rug!)
Thanks Karen! I love that chair; it’s super comfy! The only reason I haven’t gotten rid of it yet 😉
I love Walmart, I can always find an interesting surprise when I wander the aisles!
