How to Create a Budget-Friendly Farmhouse Bedroom

Learn how to transform an ordinary bedroom into a farmhouse lover’s dream on a budget!

Y’all know how much I love farmhouse style. Well, when my son Frederick recently left for college it gave me the opportunity to turn his lackluster bedroom into a quaint farmhouse bedroom.  When he left the first thing that happened was my boys switched rooms. My younger son Julian got “the big room” as promised. He had been patiently waiting for 4 years, watching first his sister Bianca enjoy the room and then his older brother. So, this room switch started my rethinking both rooms. I’ve already revealed the updates to Julian’s room in a recent blog post, so be sure to check it out as well.

Farmhouse Bedroom Reveal

Now it’s time to show you how I transformed what used to be a basic 12-year-old boy’s room into a versatile room to welcome both our young adult son Frederick home, as well as our many guests. As usual, I kept budget clearly in mind, so I turned to my favorite farmhouse furniture provider: Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart. I really love their selection of farmhouse furniture. When I want pieces that perform, provide beauty and function and stay on budget they really deliver. I’m so excited to show you the results.

Farmhouse Bedroom Style Doesn’t Have to be Expensive

Before the transformation the room was honestly a hodge-podge of pieces collected over the years, meant originally for different rooms. The furniture was a mix of styles, and some of the pieces were showing wear and tear. Here was my chance to create a cohesive look and really up the style quotient. I set a budget of $600 and am happy to report I actually stayed under. Within this budget I purchased seven items, all from the Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart collection. They include:

  • a desk
  • a 5-tier shelving unit
  • a 3-tier shelving console table
  • 2 galvanized bins
  • 1 large round gold-framed mirror
  • 1 industrial lamp

Can you even believe I got all these pieces plus tax and shipping for $530? It’s almost unbelievable. I’m still wrapping my mind around it. The prices of the Better Homes & Gardens collection at Walmart are a game changer. Shopping elsewhere I might have been able to purchase one piece of furniture. Basically, I feel like their options make redecorating possible in a whole new way.

Farmhouse Bedroom Style: Matching vs. Mixing

The topic of matching and mixing is always an interesting one. As decorators we are constantly pondering this balance: to match or mix. How much matching is good? What is the right amount of mixing? It really all depends on you and what you prefer. Matching is easy; both easier to do and easy on the eye. So as a decorator it feels a little bit like a cop out. It’s a bit old school as well. It is more modern to be freer and not conform to matching. Rooms that feel too “matchy-matchy” are passe. With that being said, we want our rooms to feel harmonious.

In this space there were several factors that made me want to create a more harmonious feel. To begin, the rustic wood wall creates a bold statement. This mood already made me feel like I could get away with more of a matched look with the furniture. Also, the decor elements held enough of an eclectic mix that I knew the space needed to be brought together.

Jodie and I discussed the purchases beforehand. She asked me if I was concerned about buying three pieces from the same collection. I told her that I thought it was going to work in the space. Now that it’s completed, I really like it, and I’m so happy I trusted my instincts. It wouldn’t always be the right decision, but we take each space into consideration. In the end, the balance is a gut feeling and a personal choice.

Farmhouse Bedroom Furniture

As I mentioned above the prices of the Better Homes & Gardens products at Walmart are amazing. Let’s talk about this: How are they able to provide such affordability?

You Assemble It

I have personally built five of their pieces, two for Julian’s room and three for this room. I built all five with no help and no prior experience. They engineer it, and you put it together. Of course, there is a time commitment. Depending on the piece it can be 1/2 hour to two to three hours. But in my opinion, it is totally worth it. Don’t worry. If I can do it, you can do it!

Some of the benefits include:

  • Free shipping from Walmart
  • Well protected in shipping. All five of my pieces have come in perfect condition because of the quality of packing and reinforced boxes.
  • High quality engineering.
  • Everything fits together perfectly.
  • Everything is provided.
  • Best instructions I’ve ever read.
  • Worth your time to have a quality piece at an amazing price.
  • Feeling of satisfaction and empowerment!

Better Homes & Gardens at Walmart is all about value for your money. And when budget is high on the list of priorities it’s such a blessing to have Walmart on your side.

Other Farmhouse Bedroom Elements

Before this most recent restyle I had already changed out the bed. Previously it was a traditional style twin bed which would not work for my older, full-grown son. Nor would it be nice for guests. Below is a photo of the room from last year before I started the transformation.

The new bed I chose is a full-size rustic wrought-iron bed perfect for the farmhouse bedroom look I wanted. The bedding I changed to a beautiful all-linen white coverlet. Pillows in dark heathered gray and blue jean add a rustic feel. The handmade antler pillow completes the look.

The other change I made was swapping out the old white blind for a new woven wood blind. It adds such warmth to the room and compliments the farmhouse style. I love the no-fuss look of a simple wood blind in this room.

Farmhouse Bedroom: Complete

I am so excited to have this bedroom makeover complete. It’s the perfect timing for summer guests. Frederick will be away all summer on his European adventure, but we have many guests who will be making use of his newly restyled farmhouse bedroom. The room now has a cohesive, stylish look that I am proud to show off. It’s a nice balance of both masculine and feminine elements. I think the combination of rustic textures and materials, clean lines, and luxurious white linens will make all our guests feel at home. Taking reservations soon.

    I know u framed this as a farmhouse look, but I think young Millenials and others starting out would really embrace the look and how inexpensive to get the look, rather than Ikea decor.
