Furniture on the Cheap

The thing about buying a house is that you tend to sink almost all of your savings into a down payment, closing costs, and any immediate repairs. Then, when you move in, you realize that your old furniture just isn't going to cut it. What to do when you need furnishings but can't bear to make any more large purchases? Head to Goodwill! Erica Levofsky has made a side-hustle out of finding furniture at thrift stores or on people's curbs, bringing them back to her workshop, and transforming them with a little bit of paint. 

If you have some old furniture lying around needing a facelift, email Erica at Or check out her Instagram page, @buffalodecorstore.
