For her budget bedroom makeover, Atlanta area homeowner Mandisha Thomas contrasted bold-colored walls with neutral furnishings. Several years ago she had painted a few green and orange squares on the wall, and it was time to finish the job.

BeforeInspired by Jonathan Adler’s generous use of color, Mandisha set about creating her own colorful bedroom for $832.77. Shopping her own home first, she discovered throw pillows, artwork, frames, and other home decor and accessories to upcycle along with discount and thrift store finds.

AfterAnchoring the design is a daybed from IKEA purchased as-is, which she topped with throw pillows she recovered. Another one of her projects was covering an old upholstered chair with new black-and-white fabric for a seating area in the bedroom.
