Master Bedroom Transformed into Modern Retreat

Design bloggers Monica and Jess turn a couple's bland master bedroom into a modern, eclectic retreat. They used a few tricks of the trade to get a high-end look in the room on a budget of just $400.
Monica and Jess are always looking for a challenge. So when they received a call for help from a couple looking to transform their boring master bedroom, they couldn't pass up the opportunity. But when they discover that they only have $400 to complete the entire project, they know they will have to get creative.

Homeowners Stephanie and Dan have high-end taste and have sent over some inspiration photos representing what they want in the room. It would cost thousands of dollars to create the designer room that the homeowners desire. So, Monica and Jess have their work cut out for them. They plan to DIY their way to a custom look in the room for less!

Are Dan and Steph really ready to add some color to the room? Monica and Jess are willing to find out!

Homeowners, Stephanie and Dan, have lived without nightstands in their bedroom for years. Monica starts by picking up incredibly inexpensive nightstands and adds a few tricks to give it a high end look. By making it herself, she is able to save hundreds of dollars. She gives the nightstands a white-wash with paint and then uses a 1x3 piece of wood to cut hundreds on tiny tiles to glue to the drawers.

Jess gets creative by making a multi-layered headboard out of foam insulation, egg crate foam and fabric. This budget-busting project only cost $85!

Monica takes the existing dresser in the bedroom and completely transforms it by sanding each door differently and then applying stain.

Then, Monica and Jess find an old, upholstered chair downstairs and their creative juices start flowing immediately. After cutting off the legs of the chair, Monica paints the upholstery with a roller and builds a base to turn it into a rocking chair!

As the room makeover continues, Jess notices throughout the house that the homeowners have many beautiful pictures on the wall. She uses their old wedding photos to create gallery wrapped canvases with engineer prints from an office supply store. The customized gallery has a high-end look for only $10 a picture! It's a project anyone can do!

After two days of creativity and some wise spending, designers Monica and Jess have finished transforming Stephanie and Dan's boring bedroom into something that's modern, fun and fabulous. The homeowners were shocked that they were able to create such a masterpiece in their bedroom for less than $400.
