after of budget redo for boy's rustic style bedroom
After: The paneled walls get a more sophisticated look with a coat of neutral gray; painting the armoire a similar hue helps it blend in to give the illusion of more space. An iron-look bed frame suits the new big-boy decor, while the wood-planked ceiling creates visual interest and warms up the room.

• Painted the walls stormy gray $30
