This Php8K Bedroom Makeover Was Done Using Shopee Finds
In just five days, Febie Bayani was able to give her private space an aesthetic yet functional new look
For Febie Bayani, giving her bedroom a makeover was a way of improving not just her space but her well-being as well. After all, a clean and organized bedroom can help you sleep and focus better.
“I was just going to get rid of the clutter and re-organize my things but since I was planning to do a room makeover soon, I decided that it would be the best time to do it. It took me five days to do the makeover,” she shares with Realliving.com.ph.

Febie spent around Php8,000 for the project, most of which was spent on storage and decor pieces as well as a work desk and a chair. Since almost all of the items she bought came from Shopee, keeping the cost within her means became easier.
See how Febie worked on the bedroom makeover below:
Before the makeover, Febie already had a loft bed, a gift from her parents that she received in 2012. Her work area takes up space under the sleeping area while the rest of the room houses different plants.
Day 1 and 2 of the makeover were all about decluttering and planning. “I separated the things I needed and those that can still be of use, things that can be sold, and things that will be disposed of. I listed my goals for the new look and then I bought the items I’ll be using online,” Febie recalls.
To make the process efficient, Febie waited for the items to be completed before starting work. Two days were devoted to repainting the neutral-colored walls, more cleaning, and assembling the new pieces of furniture.

“I love that I was able to achieve my goal of having three areas for my daily activities,” Febie shares once the makeover was done. The three areas she now has included the work/study area below the sleeping space, the art/business area near the window, and the workout/relaxation area furnished with a buri mat.
For the color scheme, she settled on using the Coconut Color from Rain or Shine. She mixed it with some white paint to lighten the color a bit. Easy on the eyes, the lightened coconut color complements the decor pieces and white furniture.
In transforming her room, Febie prioritized zoning and mobility. “Identify your daily routine and activities as doing so can help you plan the placing of furniture and your things,” she shares.

Febie shares that she decided to create a separate art/business area because she often gets distracted in front of the computer. In this nook, she added a desk, floating shelves, a grid wall, and a Nordic butterfly chair which all came from Shopee. Love the items? Check out the links below:
“Surrounding myself with plants makes me feel better,” Febie says. “When the pandemic started, we weren’t able to go out as much so bringing nature indoors and taking care of plants have helped me cope with the stress,” she adds.
Plants in lovely planters take the center stage in her workout nook. The lovely greens complement the buri mat and other green wonders in the room. Click here to buy a similar buri mat.
