My Bedroom

26 Jun

Well my room (back at the parents’ house) is finally just the way I want it! Since I am entering the real world…on a teacher’s salary…I decided to move back in with mom & dad and save money, at least for the first year. Decorating is one of my passions and my bedroom has been a project of mine for the last year or so. Last summer I painted my room and re-did all of the furniture pieces. Since I’ve moved back home, I added some curtains, shelves, an over sized mirror, wall collage, and other little knick-knacks to get it just right. =)

Tips I’ve found for decorating on a budget:

1. Pick a color scheme! It’s so much easier when you have 3-5 main colors that you want to incorporate in to the design

2. DIY: Make your own art. I LOVE painting on canvases and did so with the monogram above my bed and with the quote on my dresser. Other fun ideas are to frame anything from scrapbook paper to decorative napkins to paint chips. All very inexpensive and super cute!

3. If you want a “new look,” paint old furniture that you currently own or go to a thrift store and purchase an inexpensive piece that you can re-do. It’s so much fun and allows for lots of creativity!

3. Buy fun little decorations – Hobby Lobby is fabulous! You can always find great deals and they always have a 40% off coupon that you can either print off from their website or pull up on your phone and show at checkout. (Hobby Lobby website:

Decorating my room makes me VERY excited for the day I get to decorate my future house. But for now I will enjoy living at home with the roomies 😉
