While I’m here in Texas this week I’m sharing a few of my daughters bedroom decorating ideas on a budget. She’s a senior in college, works part-time and needs to spend her money wisely. I’m so proud of how she created a cozy home that’s bursting with creativity on a tight budget.
I had a hard time choosing just a few of her thrifty projects because each room has something super creative I could share. I decided to start with her bedroom decorating ideas on a budget because I’ve always felt that having a beautiful bedroom as a special place to retreat to is important. These are easy projects that anyone can make and each of these decorating ideas pack a big visual impact.
Blair’s style is a bit of Hollywood glam. By changing the colors on these projects they could easily fit into any setting or personal style. Here are a few of my favorites.
Make a handy memory frame to hold special pictures, sunglasses or cherished items. Take and old picture frame, give it a new coat of paint. Cover the picture backing with fabric and glue on complimentary ribbons in a weave pattern. I love this idea and Inexpensive frames are so easy to find!
Last summer while I was visiting, Blair and I worked on her glam dresser makeover together. You can see the project here. She took the drama to the next level by adding a beautiful contrasting blue to insides and sides of the dresser drawers. This is such a fun way to add unexpected color to a piece of furniture!
Need a headboard? You can do this for a fraction of what they sell for in a store. Make it big and really increase the drama.
Blair used a 1/2 inch foam insulation board she found at Home Depot. She cut it to the shape she wanted, covered it with fabric and used a staple gun to hold the fabric on the back side. She used a few nails to attach it to the wall and covered them up when she added some bling with a glue gun around the edge. Best of all, it only weighs a few pounds.
I love these bedroom decorating ideas on a budget that Blair created. They are easy to make, really inexpensive and so pretty! Each time I visit, I see something new and creative she’s added to make her home cozy and beautiful. Starting out on your own is a big step. A little creativity can go a long way and a first home can still be pretty without breaking the bank and blowing the budget!
