Julia's Refreshed Bedroom on a Budget

House Call

Name: Julia Cristina
Location: Washington DC

My sister asked me to redecorate her bedroom — since we are on a tight budget (she is 17) we decided to do most of the changes by painting the walls, color coordinating, and finding alternative uses for old furniture sitting around the house.

Her new "bedside table" is a plain chair painted to match the bed, and the mirror was a gaudy, gold plated mirror we painted white. We also painted the low ceilings the same as the wall to make them seem higher. Art work was made by my very talented sister.

The goal was to keep everything really crisp, natural and clean to discourage mess and knick knack accumulation.

Thanks Julia!
