Hey guys! I am back from South Carolina and have to show you some of the projects we worked on while I was down there. My friends daughter, Ella, is 10 years old and she wanted me to decorate her room. Her mother had a very small budget of $100 and we completed this room under $100! She spent a grand total of $88 and some spare change for this transformation.
We moved out the dresser that was on the end of her bed to free up some more floor space.
I laid down my rug I brought from home I no longer needed, changed out the bedding, and added some artwork. Little things make such a big difference! The throw pillows were $2 from Roses, the floating shelves were $3 also from Roses, and the decor on top of the shelves are all from Dollar Tree.
Here is one of the before pictures. I wanted to bring some artwork onto her blank walls, new bedding, and clear out some of her furniture and things she no longer needs or wants.
We made this wall mirror for $9 by using command strips and Dollar Tree mirrors and sticking them on the wall. We found the wall deca, the silver perfume tray, and the silver ring holder also at Dollar Tree. I spray painted the candle holder black so it goes with the theme and used white candles on top-all from Dollar Tree.
She needed curtains for her window and her closet. We found black curtains for $5 at Rose’s and strung some Christmas beads onto the curtains with zip ties.
We found this HUGE bulletin board from Goodwill for $4! She adores Janet Jackson and I think it’s so important to hang achievements and awards up in kids rooms where they can see them every day.
Since we didn’t have much money to spend on artwork of this scale, I made this poster out of foam poster and black letter stickers from Dollar Tree.
We use bead strings found in the Christmas section at Roses. They were $1 per strand.
All the decor on the shelves are either things she had, or things purchased from Dollar Tree.
I used Christmas beads on her light to make it look like a chandelier. This was a $2 DIY and Ella’s favorite thing in the room!
