$100 Room Makeover
Let’s do a quick recap.. We are in a traditional Japanese home in Iwakuni, Japan. The bedroom is small but has plenty of closet space and natural light. Here’s how it looked a month ago.
The inspiration board I shared with my plans in the first week. I’ve been infusing global eclectic style throughout our home so I knew that I wanted to take that direction with our bedroom too.

Goodbye boring walls and floors, now when you walk into the room you see my DIY basket wall art!
I decided at the last minute to move the chair into our room from downstairs and I’m so glad I did. It looks perfect in the corner and helps balance the other side of the room.
The bedding I already had. I would have loved to throw in a kilim pillow or two (with all the painted basket colors) but it wasn’t in the budget. Maybe down the road…
I found a solution for my husband’s side of the bed. The side table is so tiny, I opted for a pretty gold mercury lamp (IKEA) and a tall basket (Pier One) on the wall to fill the empty space.
He has a little more surface for his glasses and water glass now. I moved the tall lamp that was on his side to my side. Its narrow base opened up more room on my desk turned vanity.
I exchanged the pretty flower arrangement for a plant and leaned an extra DIY art piece in front of the mirror.
We found the perfect solution for the tv (I shared a little peek last week.) This pretty cabinet is the right height and has beautiful carvings and colors on the drawer fronts.
The garden window was tricky because I had planned on using most our budget for plants but it went towards the cabinet. I was able to purchase one live plant (with a mix of plants in it) and group it with faux plants and shells I had around the house.
Here’s our view!
I’m really happy with how everything came together. Not bad for only being in our rental for 2 months.
