Seriously, how many Real Housewives episodes start with picking out new wallpaper and upholstery fabric? I think it's between 80 and 90 percent.

But since home makeovers can be intimidating when you're watching your cash, we decided to transform a living space on a strict budget. $1,000, to be exact.

As a bonus, it's dead simple to assemble

Promising review:"I ordered only one at first, but after if arrived and I saw how easy it was to put together and how beautiful it was, I ordered another one. I had been looking for this type of shelving unit for awhile and they were all very expensive. This was exactly what I wanted and at a great price. I would definitely recommend this." —Buggin2buy

Promising review: "I love this floor lamp. It looks even better in real life than in the picture. My husband and I were looking for a modern, simply designed floor lamp for our place but most of them were very expensive. This is such a great price for a very nice design, and was exactly what we were looking for. Delivery was fast too, less than a week. It only took my husband less than five minutes to set it up. We really love this lamp." —Guttierez
