Bedroom Makeover on a Budget!

Happy Friday, everyone! It’s my last post for July! I’ve been posting a lot about makeovers (and recently how to do them for less), but this week I thought I’d feature bedroom makeovers that are achievable under $350! Can you believe that?! It might sound too good to be true, but you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find out that it can happen!

Take a look at this bedroom. Not bad, but it could use a little more design, right? Now, if we were to redecorate this room to become livelier and more colorful, how do you think it would end up with a budget of a mere $350?

And voila! Here we have a splash of colors that bring life and personality into what was once a dull and dreary room. Using a lighter shade of green for the walls and bed covers, we used palettes of purple, ocean blue, and seafoam green to contrast and highlight the designs. This is definitely a room for people with bright, eclectic personalities.

Now, onto what this makes this overhaul so affordable: First, would you believe that the headboard is just made of plywood? It’s simply an addition of picture frames and metal sheets! The bedside table is actually just storage cubes and the curtain designs were cut out from fabrics. The same concept was used for the lettering on the pillowcase. Most of the decoration in this bedroom are DIY, with tools that can be easily found in hardware stores and installed on your own.

The key to redecorating for less is all about creativity. All you need is a little imagination and being resourceful, and you can easily come up with designs of your own. It’s cost-efficient and definitely keeps those creative juices flowing!
