The first place to create the most visual impact for the money is paint. A decent grade of paint will run $30 per gallon and you'll need about two gallons for two coats. Bedding takes up one of the largest visual areas, and you can find plenty of bedding companies for kids online. A four-piece set will run about $79. The next large visual area is windows. A coordinating fabric valance is $18 and a wood rod with brackets is $22. With the remaining $20, I would either get a rug or some fun artwork for over the bed. The total cost is $199, and the result is a room with a new, fresh look.
