Looking for simple ideas on how to style a bedroom on a budget? Here’s a fun bedroom makeover before and after with tons of ideas and inspiration.
Remember when I showed you this bedroom?
This is the room I grew up in.
This is the bedroom where I studied for geometry and English and history and chemistry. It’s where I put my Merle Norman pancake make-up on in front of a fan in the middle of summer because we didn’t have central heat or air and hot glued plaid bows onto the front of my blue sweater vest to wear on a first date with the cutest boy and his brown twinkling eyes.
It didn’t look like this when I lived here.
It had Laura Ashley wallpaper covering the walls and coordinating Laura Ashley bedding in the reverse pattern and a matching lampshade and a giant bulletin board with my entire high school life pinned to it along with a couple of dried up homecoming mums.
But life happens.
And somewhere along the way, the new owners removed the wallpaper to reveal the original shiplap beneath it and stained the shiplap in stripes. When we bought back the house the first thing we did was paint the walls white and add a little farmhouse back into the space.
We just updated it again with some new furniture pieces and new bedding and I thought it might be fun to show you what a little shopping at Walmart with Better Homes and Gardens can do.
Are you ready?

bedroom makeover before and after on a budget
You saw where we started.
Here’s the bedroom.
Isn’t it so calm and peaceful and simple?
And the star of the show?
Budget bedding options
If you are looking for a little refresh for spring? This is the BEDDING FOR YOU. This chenille comforter and sham set is only $54 dollars at Walmart.
Yes. $54. And it looks SUPER high end.
Can you even?
We got it in the full/queen size, but it’s available in a king.
It comes with this comforter with a tufted back and two standard shams.
I also have this comforter on order to layer in and it was only $34.99.
Budget storage options
To add a little more storage to this side of the room, I added this six storage cubby.
It’s SUPER affordable at Walmart for only $88 and it comes in eight different finishes.
You can see it here.
My favorite thing about the unit?
You have an entire selection of these storage bins.
The ones I chose have the cutest gold handles.
This brass sphere was super affordable and I added it to the shelves to bring in the gold of the handles.
Budget lighting options
On the desk area, I found this pineapple lamp for under $25 with the shade.
It’s so cute and adds a little homework light to this side of the room.
I found mine in the store, but they have tons of other cute options online.
You can see them here.
budget accessory options
And beside the bed I added this gold candle holder.
It’s supposed to be used for candles, but it makes the cutest organizer.
She’s going to use it to hold her rings and jewelry.
You can see it here.
I was also thinking about getting this organizer for her desk, too.
a little handmade for a bedroom makeover before and after
Because every bedroom makeover before and after needs a little handmade?
I added this artwork made by her aunt.
This bedroom might not have Laura Ashley wallpaper anymore.
But it’s still ready for late-night high school gossip and contouring make-up and geometry and physics and English and history.
And the best part?
On the other side of the room next to the door, there’s a bulletin board covered with all the high school things pinned from the last two years.
Even a mum or two. 🙂
I am so happy and honored to be part of the BHG Live Better Influencer Network at Walmart.
