Designing your own home doesn’t have to be an expensive process. For her 32sqm bachelorette pad in the city, homeowner Nancy Siy has perfected the practice of recycling old pieces and purchasing cheap but chic things. Another affordable trick that she tried was to paint the walls a refreshing aqua. These candy-colored walls made her space look interesting and also provided the perfect backdrop for her budget finds.

Nancy used some of her favorite pieces, such as a couch now dressed with a black slip cover to fit the color theme of the space, a black chandelier bought for only P5,000, and an old shoe cabinet repurposed as a TV stand. To make the most of the limited area, she also has different multi-purpose items like a couch that can be turned into a bed, a coffee table that transforms into a dining table, and ottomans that also serve as storage.
