You’re not going to bring the bunk-beds you’ve been sharing with your sister since you were ten, are you? You’re a grown-up now, and you want to furnish your studio all on your own… but wait. You’re on a very limited budget… so now what? No worries! Scrape together only $500, borrow your father’s pick-up truck, and head to IKEA, where you can buy these 7 pieces to completely furnish your studio!
1. IKEA Beddinge Lövås
Price: $249.00 at ikea.com
This super-comfy, modern-looking couch has a secret — it’s actually a very versatile bed! Pull it flat and it’s a roomy full-sized bed, but fold away your sheets and blanket and it’s a couch! You can even choose a cover, and matching (or contrasting) throw pillows in lots of colors and prints.
