So what does a mom do in her mid-40’s when divorce happens? You gut your bedroom and design a bedroom makeover just for you! I started this project last year after Christmas and today I am finally sharing my new DIY mint green master bedroom budget makeover. The mint green bedding is a home run and looks beautiful with the wood scroll headboard (which is actually wall art from HomeGoods).
DIY bedroom decorating ideas on a budget
Here is my dark master bedroom before.

Green bedroom ideas do not always need to involve green paint (although I love the mint green bedroom paint in my teen step daughters old bedroom). You will see in that post that the mint green walls coordinated perfectly with the white and green bedding. It’s kind of a flip flop from this bedroom where I have white walls and mint green bedding. The new white wall color below is Nova white by Glidden. The white bedroom walls completely transformed my master bedroom and brightened it up.
Mint Green Bedding
First and foremost, you need to find bedding that is affordable. Bedding can range from hundreds to thousands of dollars in a matter of minutes if you are not careful. Honestly, you can create luxury master bedroom by layering affordable comforters, quilts and duvets. Bedroom decorating ideas on a budget always start with the bedding and headboard in my opinion. Invest your money on the bedding.

The mint green bedding from HomeGoods was one of the biggest scores I found while shopping for my bedroom. The texture was exactly what I was looking for and looked amazing with the wood scrolling artwork that I used as a headboard. The DIY scrolling headboard added the architectural interest to the white wall and created a beautiful focal point on a budget. I purchased two scrolling wall art pieces and simply hung them on the wall, side by side, over the king sized bed. For under $150, I created a headboard that is unique and beautiful.
Simple bedroom decorating ideas
Simple bedroom decorating ideas will keep you on budget. I used a beige popcorn rug that I had in my old master bedroom and layered on top of the wall to wall carpet. Layering an area rug on top of wall to wall carpet is an easy way to create designer look while creating the foundation for a bed. As you can see in the before picture of my bedroom, the bed seems to float in the room and an area rug helps ground the bed in place.
Romantic bedroom decorating ideas on a budget
In the past I have always created more of a transitional, gender neutral bedroom theme but this time, I wanted to create a space for me, myself and I! -ha. I layered a velour beige blanket, a white comforter with blue piping, the mint green comforter, a cable knit beige throw and textured blue, green and pink throw pillows to create luxurious look. Think in layers and lots of different textures when designing your master bedroom.

My DIY mint green master bedroom budget makeover started with a partnership with Modsy. You can see the two designs in the 3D design provided by Modsy post.
The french inspired bench was actually the inspiration for my DIY mint green master bedroom budget makeover. I found it at HomeGoods and purchased it immediately. I have always wanted a bench at the bottom of my bed and this bench was affordable and romantic looking. What do I mean by romantic looking? The leg detail is petite and offers a luxurious look as well.
Did you see my post about a month ago sharing the 3D bedroom makeover designs by Modsy? You have to check that post out if you missed it. This image below is one of the designs and I absolutely love the chandelier. I am on the hunt for a chandelier just like this for my bedroom.
