Master Bedroom Makeover on a Budget, With Tips and DIY Tricks

This was a bedroom on a budget! I wanted to redo my master bedroom, but had a hard time justifying the expense when it was already functional. By selling my old furniture on Craigslist and doing the whole makeover on almost no budget, I was able to get the look I wanted for less than the money I made on the old furniture!

    I just absolutely love this post! I always come back to it! How did you arrange and hang the fairy lights behind the curtain for your headboard?

      Thank you! My secret for the lights is that I used a set of patio umbrella lights. You could also use Christmas lights. It's better to use the kind that come on white colored wire so they're more invisible. Then you just put nails or tacks in the wall and stretch the lights on the nails. (Don't nail through the wire though!) Good luck!
