Hi,

If your accommodation has been paid for 1500 to 2000 baht per day is easily enough.

If you are eating street food and not drinking than you can easily get by on that including your accommodations. However unless you are in or around Thong Sala there is little street food available.

It depends on your and your lifestyle.

We tend to take more than less. We tend to budget for 5000thb a day [for us 50 something married couple]and come home with money! Nothing worse than finding you don't have enough.

You are not too far from the night market where cheap street food can be had, but still a motorbike ride away. Regardless, I think that your budget is definitely doable.
