Teeny tiny budget bedroom makeover

There wasn’t much wrong with my bedroom as it was but when I was out with my blog buddy last week, I found 3 meters of fabulous Robert Allen fabric, and that inspired me to freshen up my bedroom.

The best part of this makeover was that my best friend came over half way through and helped me finish it. We got to spend some time together and accomplish this makeover in just a few hours. I am still working on accessorising and quite frankly, don't like too much stuff on the walls, it may just stay this way.

All of the changes were made with things that I had bought at thrift stores.
Here’s the breakdown:
8’ x 6’ jute rug – $10
Fabric for headboard and cushions – $4
Maltase coverlet and two pillow shams –  $16
Curtains – $14

Total: $44

I had left over paint from the kitchen and painted the one wall that was previously chocolate brown. I also  painted out a square above my dresser because I had previously had a tv on that wall and painted around it last time I painted, don’t be a ding dong like me:)

The jute rug was a steal at $10 and is in great condition

The fabric is so pretty and there was just enough to do the king sized headboard and two pillow covers.

It’s not how I had planned to spend my Sunday, but when inspiration hits, you just have to go with it.

I hope you are having a great weekend.

  28. Hi Mel! I was in need of some inspiration this evening so I thought I'd pop over. I love what you've done with your bedroom. The fabric for the headboard is gorgeous. I'm currently living without a headboard and Im not sure how much longer I can live without one! I wouldn't even know where to begin. So we're your bedside tables a steal also? Now I need to comment on your cane chairs, love them,
