Vintage furnishings and honey-colored walls help to create an eclectic look with a French influence.
Lee Snijders, Summer Baltzer and Charles Burbridge come up with a plan to transform the green-walled bedroom.
Paint - $65
One wall is kept dark green while the remaining three walls are painted a complementary mustard seed color to match the bedding. (paint: Benjamin Moore - 2154–50 Straw)
Closet Doors - $20
Baltzer dresses up the plain closet doors with an upholstered look. She layers fabric on top of batting to create depth and finishes off the rough edges with hunter green trim. (fabric: Jo-Ann Fabrics - 7280068 Camel embossed corduroy)
Bedding - $115
A white bedding ensemble with lacy details is the perfect complement to the homeowner's colorful patchwork quilt.
Curtains - $25
Baltzer cuts a sheet with lacy trim in half to use it as a window treatment over the utilitarian vertical blinds.
Headboard - $60
Burbridge creates a one-of-a-kind headboard of stairway balusters, which he frames with fluted molding.
Nightstands - $75
Knobs - $72
Crystal knobs are added to the existing dresser and new nightstands. (knobs: Target - 085030627)
Lighting - $73
Bookshelves & Drawers - $295
Snijders constructs a corner bookshelf for above the headboard, which provides the room with more storage and a focal point. Small drawer storage boxes attached along the walls are functional art in the small room. (four-drawer box: Target - 065091994; four-drawer box: Ross - 100001522233)
Ottoman Redo - $42
A small ottoman is reupholstered for use as a small seat at the end of the bed. (fabric: Jo-Ann Fabrics - 7280068 Camel embossed corduroy, rose suede 7333784)
