Budget bedroom decorating is easy once you have a game plan in mind. The goal here is to get the biggest bang for the buck.. which means I’m going to spend my dollars on items I can’t DIY. A few days ago I shared my romance wall art that I made from wood I had already. Today I’m moving on and sharing one of the most fun parts about budget decorating.
Shopping my house for my budget bedroom decorating project.
I know I can always find something that has potential if I look hard enough. I rummaged through closets, boxes, the garage and did a walk-by of all my rooms. These baskets are like my vertical blind dilemma, functional but not pretty, and were begging for an update!
What’s a DIY girl to do when she needs to redecorate on a budget?
Why grab a paintbrush of course!
I dry-brushed the color on starting with DecoArt Chalky Finish paint in Everlasting and added Vintage for the pretty soft blue contrast. You can find a dry brush tutorial here. ~ A word of advice, use an old brush you don’t care about, this technique will ruin a good brush.
This chair is another item I shopped from my house. You can see it’s makeover here.
The baskets look great beside it.
They brighten up a dark corner, which is a huge benefit for my budget bedroom makeover. You’d naturally think that a coastal home would have lots of bright natural light from windows. Nope… in magazines they do. That’s not how they built them in the 50’s, and not here;)
I still have a few more items to update and re-love for our bedroom refresh. Paint does wonders. What else works well for budget bedroom decorating that makes a big impact? Paint picture frames, figurines, take an old chair and give it new look like the one above, or this one.
I’m moving on to tackling the window and a window treatment next. Can’t wait to share what I’ve done there!
Do you have a room in your house that needs a refresh? Share below. You guys know I love to hear from you:)
