Eclectic design elements are used to update this plain bedroom.
Host Joan Steffend and designer Nadia Ramirez makeover a bachelor’s bedroom for $500.
Before, this bedroom was just plain boring with its bland color scheme and bare walls.
$53 - Paint
Alternating colors were painted in a checkerboard pattern on one wall to create an eclectic back drop.
$42 - Leather Headboard
Faux leather strips were woven together onto a wood frame to create a fancy, yet masculine headboard.
$129 - Bedding
A textured duvet and complimentary pillows were added to the bed to enhance the headboard.
$10 - Side table
A funky retro side table was a great find at an estate sale and fit in perfectly with the decor.
$26 - Matchstick Blinds
Matchstick blinds were chosen to give the room an organic feel.
$112 - Wall of Art
Bare walls were brought to life with various pieces of art work. Several pictures were cut out of art books and framed to create numerous pieces in a pinch.
$2 - Wood Wall Art
Fun patterns were carved into scrap plywood and painted to create additional artwork for the rooms.
$12 - Book Shelf
A bookshelf was constructed using real books and a metal bracket. The bookshelf was dressed with a bright red vase to add a bold punch of color to the room.
$7 - Modern Desk Chair
A modern desk chair replaced the traditional chair at the homeowner's high tech desk.
$56 - Estate Chair
Leather strips were woven into an estate chair and secured with decorative nail heads. The chair was dressed with a decorative pillow to complete the look.
$51 - Accessories
The accessories in this room included vases in black and white, a black bowl, books and an unrivaled hand sculpture.
