Budget bedroom ideas – My designer bedroom makeover for under $100!

Published on February 2, 2015 By Lauren

Wondering how to decorate your bedroom for less? Here is a beautiful bedroom makeover for under $150.00, come and take a look!

I am SO excited to share with you my Master Bedroom re-design that I've been working on the past two weekends.  First, let me share that we bought our current house 3 years ago and had never touched our bedroom until now.  It just was always the last item on the list, and since I am nesting BIG TIME I just decided to start painting it last weekend!

First – let me show you the before picture (even though it's a little embarrassing).


There were a few major flaws in this bedroom – so let me go over them first.

before light

#1 – This UGLY light was the top on my list – stuck right in the middle of the wall over our bed.  Yes, it was convenient to be able to turn the light on and off so quickly, but it was just SO ugly and in a strange place.  This was a challenge to find a design that would help me hide this ugly eyesore.  We ended up taking it out completely and covering it up with a white outlet cover, but I still had to figure out how to hide the sight of a weird outlet cover.

#2 – Plain dirty white shelving. I found a fun bright yellow spray paint to paint these – for a nice pop of color in the room.  I already had the furniture – so the cost of this re-design was only $5.00 (for the cost of the spray paint).

After addressing the major ‘issues' with the room I went to work trying to find inspiration.  I saw this PIN on Pinterest two years ago and immediately knew this design would be the one that I wanted to use as inspiration.

I was able to pull off this design for under $100 – the entire room design + paint and accessories for under $100!


Here are a few more pictures for you to enjoy 🙂

I am SO pleased with the results – and I was able to fix both of the issues with the bedroom that I had and also choose my DREAM paint color.

As you can see I was able to hide the covered up light under the curtain canopy drapes, so you cannot even see it unless you look up close.


The end tables were painted bright yellow to add a pop of color and I added the teal bins (from Thirty One) for some hidden storage options.

Throughout the week I will be sharing the breakdown of each individual expense – most of my cost went into the curtain canopy.  I will share with you exactly how I did the canopy, and how I accented to room to keep it under $100!
