Part 3-TV Room Makeover Pulling it all Together

TV Room Makeover with Goodwill of Orange County

A bargain priced room with a designer look: that’s what you can get when you shop at Goodwill of Orange County.  After shopping at Goodwill stores and doing a few DIY projects, I am ready to pull this TV Room Makeover project together.  I spent $465.68 on items for my TV Room with an estimated retail value of $1071.42.  That’s a savings of $605.74!  Not to mention with a little elbow grease on customizing a tray , window treatments , and entertainment center this room is going to exceed the look of even the thousand dollar retail price tag.

Remember what the room looked like before: boring, blah, un-functional.

I repurposed a few things of my own to add to the great finds from Goodwill of Orange County.

I could not be more pleased with how this TV Room Makeover turned out by shopping at Goodwill stores in Orange County.  Not only did I get the look I wanted, I also saved a bundle of money and contributed to a worthy cause.  What more could a designer ask for?

Here is a 360 degree view of the completed room:
