     Manic:  Your kids outgrowing their rooms and you are on a tight budget!

Managed:  Asked my talented interior design-gifted friend to share how she transformed her daughter’s room for a really reasonable price.  Check out her incredible design on a dime decor ideas!


Bridget says:

Here are some photos of what I did to create a zebra print room for my tween daughter.
*First I used duct tape from Michaels Arts & Crafts that I purchased for 40% off.
It is $4.49 at Michaels and $4.99 at Hobby Lobby.
*I used the hot pink Zebra Print for the border of the room.  I used the white and black Zebra Print for the glass dish to hold knick knacks and I used it for the desk top, drawers and the mirror.
*Then I put new black knobs on the desk.  They were $2.99 a piece at Hobby Lobby.  We made our own lamp shade (bought a black shade and put fur on it).  The mirror was only $5 at Walmart, and I got the desk at a garage sale for $30.  I also purchased one pint of white satin paint, three rolls of duct tape and away I went. Then I accessorized the room with a chair cushion that cost me $9 at Hobby Lobby.
*Next I took a plain bulletin board and put black felt on it and hot pink fur…that is really fun!
*I added a very nice 4 x 6 zebra rug from Amazon that cost me $30 and I got free shipping.
The room is now done, and if she changes her mind in a year or so, I can easily remove the tape and do it in another design. This is my design on a dime look!
