Staging A Beach Inspired Bedroom On A Budget

Staging A Beach Inspired Bedroom On A Budget and Giving It Much Needed Style

Hi All,

I have been working with a client who plans on putting her house on the market in the near future. She has two guest rooms and wanted to make them more presentable without spending a lot of money since her new home will be smaller and she will have to let go of some of her existing furnishings. Today I will be sharing how we transformed one of those guest bedrooms. I am going to show you how staging a beach inspired bedroom on a budget can give a drab, dated space new life without breaking the bank. This guest room was dark, uninspiring and a bit out of style. The decor was a hodgepodge of nautical pieces, South West inspired bedding with a few country accents added to the mix. I used the Pelican themed artwork above the bed as a jumping off point and decided to go with a beach theme.

I found some gorgeous beach inspired fabric that featured vintage style crabs, fish, shells and octopuses that had a nice neutral background. I made a simple curtain valance from it and a few throw pillows.

To add some color to the wall I created a set of two custom beach prints that match the pillow fabric. I was lucky enough to find the same vintage images online and was able to tweak them to a nice aqua blue. I painted a couple of old thrift store frames and distressed them. Custom Made Vintage Inspired Beach Prints I cleaned up the desktop and added a couple of accessories to warm it up. A Nautical Office Nook I found this cute Pelican accent lamp at Kirkland’s and just had to buy it. It compliments the artwork above the bed.

I cleared off the surface and gave it a complete makeover with a few tasteful beach inspired accessories. Staging A Beach Inspired Bedroom On A Budget After spending hours looking for the “perfect” lamp for the space and coming up empty, I decided to create one from scratch. I bought a decorative bottle from Hobby Lobby and turned it into a lamp. I covered the shade with the same beachy fabric. I love it!

Staging A Bedroom To Sell

With some decluttering, creativity and a few new accents this guest bedroom is now a relaxing place for guests to unwind and it is inviting to potential buyers without being over the top. Staging A Bedroom On a Budget When staging a home to sell it is very cost effective to spruce up the things you already own. Adding a few new inexpensive accessories can freshen up the space, making it more appealing to buyers without breaking the bank. Upcycling a few thrift store pieces or existing items is a great place to start.

Thanks so much for stopping by today!
