Bedroom Makeover on a Budget
Turn a bleak extra bedroom into a chic guest room with our creative shopping tips and stylish projects you can do yourself.
Dresser: Before and After
Before: 1960s bureau with scratches and corroded hardware
After: Eyed for its simple lines, long legs, and vintage allure, paint perked up this piece. The front drawers were covered in of-the-moment wallpaper, and its status went from retro trash to modern chic. Even after paint, designer wall covering, a cut-to-fit glass top, and new satin-nickel hardware, the transformation still came in under $155.
Dresser color: Majestic Mauve by Benjamin Moore
Flowering Rose in Pink
$40 (per roll; we used one roll with feet to spare)
Available at Graham & Brown
Tips: To keep this wallpaper project simple, opt for a chest with flat drawer fronts void of any bevels or adornment. And one roll of wallpaper was more than enough to cover this dresser. Instead of tossing the remainder, use it to line the drawers.
