Guest Bedroom Makeover: design on a dime!

Hey There,

I’m excited to share my long over due guest bedroom makeover, especially since it cost me less than $250.! How is this even possible you might ask?!?  Well, I reused, re-purposed & made some savvy shopping choices… specifically  @ Craigslist, Ross & Walmart.

(previous situation)

For starters, I reused the left over green paint from my master bedroom to create a colored feature wall in the guest bedroom. That headboard which is actually an old plantation shutter screen was given to me by my aunt, but any type of room/screen divider could work as a nice headboard

Then, I busted out my old master bedroom queen size quilt that I was no longer using since I upgraded to a king size bed. I believe my mom originally found that at a garage sale of some sort.

Next, I recycled the old foot-board from my queen size bed and turned it on its side. From there I added a cheap door hanging mirror from Walmart and some cute key hooks from Ross. I attached the mirror with velcro and nailed in the key hooks=)

Oh and the rug  that you see… it is a 5×7 bargain find from Ross that I purchased for $49.99=)




The towels = Walmart’s Better Homes brand !

Next, one of my  favorite finds is this  shabby chic dresser that came from the one and only Craigslist for $95


If you are wondering about the fun accessories a top of the dresser… yep, they are  all from Ross. The little bird went for a mere $5.99, candles sticks $ 8 – $12, the picture frame $8.99 and the blue mirrored tray was $19.99. I also paid homage to one of my favorite tv shows, Breaking Bad, to help create a fun Wifi password for gues. I made the wifi art on!


Have you ever noticed I have a thing for chandeliers? Well, I moved the one from above my tub to top off this shabby chic look. I also painted this old wicker chair that use to be in my sister’s room way back in the day the same color as my feature wall.


Last but not least, final touches to the room included fun pillows from Ross that ranged from $6.99-$8.99


…and a d.i.y “be our guest” banner made from scrap book paper and washi tape =)


So what do you think? Any plans for your guest bedroom? Any savvy saving guest bedroom decor tricks you can share with us?

Happy decorating =)
