It was a hot pink curtain that started the ball rolling on Jae’s guest room makeover. She kept the furniture, painted the walls and tackled a DIY headboard to give this room a fresh, mature update.

Jae tells us:

I really wanted to add fuchsia curtains somewhere in our home. I decided on the guest room and that sparked a domino effect of other changes. I like the idea of letting the fabrics and accessories shine with color so I painted the walls white. All the main pieces are items I already had (and were in the ‘old’ room) I just updated them with paint and/or fabric. I was most excited about making my own burlap headboard. It makes such a big difference. The total makeover came in at $260 which is less than buying a brand new headboard.

What a great example of the new life that budget, DIY tweaks can bring to a room!
