Accessorizing a Bedroom for Under $130

You don't have to spend big bucks to make your bedroom look like a million. It's easy to create a boutique hotel retreat without a great deal of money or effort. We're going to tell you just how we achieved this look by shopping at some of our favorite bargain sources for home decor.

Although we spent the bulk of the decorating budget in the living room, we still wanted to create a chic bedroom but only had $130 to spare. The bed, headboard, lamps, artwork and ottoman were existing pieces. Here's the lowdown on the other items:

  • 10-piece gray, yellow and white bedding set - Big Lots     $ 39.99
  • Yellow, gray and white plush throw - Tuesday Morning    $ 12.99
  • Black wood TV trays - Target  (2 @ $8.99)                             $ 17.98
  • Faux crocodile trays - Hobby Lobby (2 @ $6.99)                 $ 13.98
  • Astor 84" curtain panels - Big Lots (2 @ $10.00)                  $ 20.00
  • 30-84" Silver satin Riley curtain rod set - Big Lots               $ 15.99  
                                                                                               Cost:              $120.93

The bedding worked out beautifully. We didn't want to spend a lot because, as you can see, the dog spends most of her time napping on the bed, so purchasing an inexpensive comforter and companion pieces was imperative. Our plush fleece throw looks great with the bedding and can be tossed in the washer and dryer once a week for a freshen-up.

The bedroom window faces east, so early morning sun is an issue. The window has blinds but needed a little something else to help block the light. We found curtain panels that work perfectly with the color palette and provided just the right amount of darkness. Wanting to create the look of butler tray stands for the bedside tables, we paired TV trays with these adorable croc serving trays. They gave us just the look we wanted for a fraction of the price.
Unfortunately, the bedding set from Big Lots is no longer featured on their website. We got it on closeout. And since Tuesday Morning doesn't have an online site, we couldn't give you a specific link to the plush fleece throw either. The only item we still need to purchase is an area rug when the budget allows. We're pleased to report the final tally with tax left us with a few cents to spare!
