BEFORE & AFTER | DIY Gold Chevron Wall & Small Room Makeover

Before & After, DIY KITS, Home DIY

ISPYDIY_chevronroommakeover4You all know how much I love a room makeover! So when ALDI reached out and asked if I wanted to partner up to transform a space with decor from their store, my first response, “I didn’t know ALDI had home decor!” Then they told me about the ALDI Finds section and its seasonal items, including decor and organization products that I could use to turn my blank room into a budget-friendly haven! I accepted the challenge and was excited to transform the one undecorated room in my house into a super sweet room that would be perfect for a guest, a teen or could inspire a dorm room or bedroom in a first apartment. And the timing was perfect because my little sister is visiting from Europe for a couple weeks and it’s the perfect guest room for her 🙂

I started with a blank slate!

I knew I wanted to create another DIY painted wall, so I came up with the idea of painting it this light pinky beige and drawing on a pattern with a gold sharpie paint pen! Head over to my IGTV for a video tutorial of how I created it. I takes a *little* more measurement then my last freehand design, but I give some tips in the video that speeds up the process (this wall took about 2 hours to draw on the pattern)

Then it was time to decorate! First I started by picking my items, sticking with neutrals, mostly grays and tans, with a couple pops of pale pink. Before putting everything in the room, I stopped by the ALDI Finds section, with $50 in my pocket to spend, for just a couple more items to round out the room. I scored some of my favorite items in the room: the wood clock, “Out of Office” hat, gold scissors and desk set, plus the flowers and some succulents! I got home and gave myself an hour to decorate the space and I JUST LOVE how it came together!! It’s so fun how the wall and clock patterns play off each other, and how inviting and cozy the soft colors and textures feel in the room. And can you believe almost EVERYTHING in this room is from ALDI (the bed, comforter, lamp and books are the only things I already had). The rug! The bedding! The “marble” side table! The ottoman! The macramé wall decorations! Even the details like the coffee cup, letter board, diffuser, and candle!  All ALDI and all under $185 , which is amazing if you are looking to do a room makeover on a budget!

  8. Amelie says:

    Hey! Did you use an oil based paint sharpie or a water based one? I am wanting to do a sharpie wall, and use water based paint in my home, so am afraid that if I use an oil based sharpie I’ll have to use oil based paint over it.

    This is the beauty of minimalist. Clean and tidy!

    Adorable pup Griff, by the way 🙂
