    Hey all,

    I want to update my bedroom and make into my own little sanctuary but I need to do it on a budget. Any tips you can share?

    When I'm ready for a bedroom makeover, I start with a new comforter set (bed-in-a-bag). You can find it at a decent price at K-Mart (like $40 bucks), but you have to buy extra sheets with a better thread count (somewhere down the line, or use what you have already), cause the ones that come with the cheapo but cute comforter set :icon_headshake:

    ^^^You ain't never lied. That was the first thing I did when I started decorating my new bedroom, I bought a bed in bag comforter set from Kmart, which I love. I also have added tall floor plants, a bamboo mirror. inexpensive things that make a big difference.

    Try moving furniture in a new combination if you have room, sometimes that totally changes the look of the room greatly. Enhance all the natural light in your bedroom to give it a airy, roomy feel or if you are going for cozy and secluded, bring in dark window treatments to make you feel like you are in a cocoon.

    Those are some great tips ladies. I really do need a new bed in a bag too. I actually need to repaint my bedroom so once I get the new comforter set I'll choose colours that compliment the blanket

    I want to get one of those bamboo looking window treatments I think they're called? Basically like those pull down blinds but in the bamboo texture cause I like that look. I've seen them at wal mart and they're pretty reasonably priced.

    I bought a yard or two of a fabric design that I liked and hung them on the wall in a decorative pattern. I&#39;ll post pictures whenever I get my camera back.

    If you do elevate your bed you might have to get longer sheets to compensate for the height, unless you don&#39;t mind people seeing what&#39;s under your bed.
