One Room Challenge FINAL REVEAL

I can't believe the end arrived so quickly! A big THANK YOU to Linda from Calling it Home for creating this fun challenge. I began this with these parameters

1. I am in a rental house, so I had to work with the space as it is. NO LIGHT, and only 2 walls with doorways in each.
2. I have a LARGE Bookcase Secretary that had to remain in the room (there was no place else in this house for it to fit).
3. I did this on a VERY small budget. I spent a total of $325 in paint, material for the sconces, floor cloth, and screen. (Luckily I had furniture from my home and shop to source).

I DIY'ed the following:   Floor cloth, wall sconces, folding screen and art.
Please forgive the bad photography, I have NO natural light in this room.
All items were sourced from yours truly LIV Vintage.

The Floor Cloth

Styled Bookcase

DIY Sconce

DIY Console and artwork

Remember this is where I started:
