The decorating budget was tight, too. They spent $2,352 in total, acquiring pieces through Craigslist, thrift shops and yard sales, receiving free items from family and friends and finding things on the street. A vintage stove was bought on Craigslist. Two stools, a wood workbench and an old wood locker were found on the street.

A rattan daybed and ceramic lamp are from Craigslist. The coffee table, made of wood crates, was found on the street. Mismatched dining chairs were found on the street and given a fresh coat of white paint.
