So...recently I have felt like my room has been a little bland and boring. Here are some tips on how to re do your room with stuff you probably already own.
First, take old necklaces you don't wear, and hang them on your lampshade.
Next, decorate a cork board with fabric, beads, appliqués, or whatever you want. Then add school pictures, pictures of family and friends, cards, drawings, poems, etc. Be creative!
Now, find a full body mirror. Mirrors give the illusion that your room is larger. So, the more the better.
Cut pictures out of magazines and books, use drawings, photos, and bumper stickers. Create a poster with a large piece of poster board or card stock, glue, scissors, and pics.
Take favorite books, journals, trinkets, rocks, etc. and add them to your window sill. In mine I used two books, two journals, a minuscule bird cage, a Buddha, and a piece of quarts.
Hang accessories and bags on your wall, with thumbtacks.
The last pic is a magazine wall done by one of my best friends, Millie. It has a Buddha painting in the middle and pages from magazines (like Jcrew and 17 mag). Really cool, and easy.
