I have done something to every room of my apartment except my bedroom. It’s time to give my bedroom a little makeover. I did not want a complete overhaul, I just wanted to refresh my space. I wouldn’t be me if I didn’t want to challenge myself to do this on a budget. So I allowed myself a budget of $200.00. My bedroom is TINY, so $200.00 is more than enough. Let’s do this!
Here’s the before:
These are the things I wanted to do:
Buy new bedding
Add some wall art
Change the hardware on my dresser
Add decor (frames, flowers etc)
Update and hang mirror
New side tables
First I scoured Pinterest looking for a colour scheme and landed on this on from colorpalettes.net :
Since the space is so small, I wanted to keep the palette neutral and only add a small amount of colour in items that can easily be changed later. Time to go shopping!
DIY Projects and Items Purchased
To add wall art, I made these Framed Stencils
I found a beautiful set of crystal and silver hardware from Homesense. Similar ones can be found here.
I was going to DIY a floral arrangement, however I ended finding an artificial one in a silver vase and two silver and grey picture frames at Homesense.
I updated and hung my thrift store mirror. Check out my mirror makeover post.
I actually changed these before I took the “before” photos. I initially had two Ikea black metal tables from my previous apartment where I had a large bedroom. Now that my bedroom is smaller, I sold those tables and replace them with two small black floating shelves I found on sale at Jysk.
I spent a total of $191.19.
Now for the finished product!
The changes are small but I love how it turned out! What do you think?
Until next time,
