Designing on a Dime : Before and After Master Bedroom Tour

Designing on a Dime : Before and After Master Bedroom Tour
Designing on a dime is a practical way to design, I mean, who doesn’t like saving money? For one of my projects I had the challenge of doing a Transitional Design on a budget. Through trial and tribulation, I have four simple steps to frugal design.
Designing on a Dime : Before and After Master Bedroom Tour
1.Repurpose, reuse, UPCYCLE!
In a master bedroom, above the bed is a an opportunity to make a statement. For this design I upcycled an old clock with just a little spray paint. Now, this wall sets the tone for the style and feel of the room.
2.Thrifting is your friend.
I am a huge proponent for thrifting. Not only are you getting unique and cool items but you are contributing to a sustainable lifestyle and going GREEN. I found the Duvet set at a flea market, unopened and unused. It was a Super find and all over WIN!
3.Don’t sleep on the Dollar Store.
I am often surprised at how many items I find at the dollar store that are also sold at bigger retailers for triple the price. I found the bicycle artwork at the dollar store and I couldn’t be happier with the way it pulled the space together.
4.Clearance section
When I tell you I make a Bee-Line to the clearance section of any store, I’m not lying! Every store has a discounted section and it is so worth a look at what the have BEFORE you shop the other parts of the store. I scored the bed in this room at the “As-Is” section of Ikea and it was half off the original price.
Those are my tips for designing on a budget because design is more than aesthetics, it’s the way that it makes you feel and everyone deserves to feel good about their space.
