Our master bedroom has officially been made over, and man am I ever glad. It’s totally one of those rooms where I’m now kicking myself for waiting 2+ years to tackle it.
We ended up with a neutral, un-fussy, eclectic, calming bedroom that just feels good to be in. We didn’t break the bank with any of our purchases and definitely DIY’d where we could.
We layered on neutrals for a calm, serene bedroom retreat.

For this makeover, we chose budget-friendly retailers and didn’t make any over-the-top purchases. We DIY’d where we could, up-cycled, and shopped our home for accessories.
- From Wayfair –> The rug (looooove it), black sconces, gray upholstered chair, white leather pouf, white sheets, and pink fringed throw pillow. Wayfair has an amazing selection of budget-friendly finds. I really couldn’t believe the price of the rug. It can be nerve-wracking to order things sight-unseen, but each piece we ordered we were super happy with.
- From IKEA –> The “Malm” bed and nightstands, small white faux sheepskin rug, “Ribba” picture frames, white pendant shade, and “Pax” wardrobe.
- Thrifted –> The dresser was an upcycled find from Kijiji (found for $40).
- DIY Art –> The engineer prints were printed at Staples for $3 each (cactus print, palm tree print, beach print). I made the white yarn wall hanging with materials I already had (DIY yarn hanging tutorial here).
- From Amazon –> The white linen bedding and gold hardware pulls for the closet were both from Amazon. Both incredibly budget friendly finds.
So nothing over the top expensive, but it still feels collected and curated. I think having those personal art pieces plus a few DIY items (like the dresser) in the room make it seem personal and eclectic, without having to break the bank.
