    Jaymie had this room since she was a child, so you'll notice that her painted walls are already pale and are covered in scuff marks. "Ang dilim," she adds.

    "I actually started painting the walls, [but] I realized how time-consuming it was, so I hired [a carpenter] and had the walls done in two days." She had her walls, drawers, and cabinets painted in fresh white, which helps reflect light really well. She also replaced her metal closet door handles with wooden ones she found from Shopee.

    According to Jaymie, she bought most of her room decor online (FB Marketplace, Shopee, and Mr. DIY). She also scored a lot affordable finds from the Dapitan Arcade like her mini fake plants and dried flowers, as well as her large mirror.

    "Some of the [decor] such as the desk and the floating rack were DIY-ed by my dad. He only used some leftover plywood from one of his projects a few months ago. He was also the one who refurbished my old bed frame to give it a fresh look that would match the design of my room. Thanks to my dad, I didn’t have to buy new furniture or even pay labor."

    "Another DIY is the lamp frame, which is just made out of an egg basket," she shares. The DIY piece surely added a relaxing vibe to Jaymie's newly-decorated bedroom.
