Floor plan time! As you can see from the plan, the bed takes up a whole lot of space. There isn't room for much else. But perhaps that's a good thing? Because, in working out the budget for this room makeover, our limit is just $100 + paint.

Keeping in mind that everything in Australia costs about double than what it does in the US, $100 really isn't that much. We're talking bedding, lighting maybe, that's it.

$100 feels even more puny when I think that some other budgets for this Style Cure are hundreds of dollars more. Those rooms will look magical with their on-trend marble, great lighting and deluxe linens. Imagine what we could do, if we only spent... but we can't. We just can't. That's hard to stomach sometimes, right?

But I can't get too down. A tiny budget is a chance to show what a difference a little treasure hunting, a little cleaning and moving things around, a little DIY can do. And how even a simple bedroom, a back to basics room, can look really, truly, great.
