Decorating Tips – How to Decorate your bedroom on a budget
How to Decorate your bedroom . so i’m going to show you my bedroom again and i’m going to give you some quick decorating ideas on a budget that you can do to decorate your bedroom I am in no way a decorator but i do have some tricks that I used to try to make the room look okay without spending a lot of money so here we go my first trick that and i always do is try to stick with the three five and seven role and that’s everything from placements of things to to paint color so in this room i said i have and i always say black and white when choosing paint colors are neutral so they don’t count so in this for my three colors i have the dark blue the light baby blue and the green as an accent color and so what I’m choosing when they only have three colors.
I can’t really go wrong when it was shopping I sort of can stick within that palette and it’s so soothing to have a minimal color scheme like that and i love that pop of green so how I introduced some of the accent colors into the room really inexpensively were first these lamps I found them at a yard sale they were a dollar each they were so ugly I’ll show you really zooming in here they were brass and disgusting so we took them apart and I just spray-painted the bottom white and this part here white and then this I spray painted with that apple green give it a couple of coats and then wet sanding wet sanding is using and it’s like this black sandpaper it’s very fine great you soak it in water to sand it and it takes it all the bubbles from the sand paper from this from the spray paint I mean and gives it like this smooth look like you bought the lamp like that so literally a dollar lamp it looks fantastic and i love that i could customize the color with the leftover spray paint I actually spray painted the mats of these picture frames and put them really inexpensively and i love that the mat was so huge like the matting is so big on that but it was like tie dyed brown and like all these horrible ugly colors.

And so I knew I could spray paint so I just took it out later on the grass from a blanket and spray-painted them and then it’s another way of being a punch of color of course this old chair – that is so disgusting as my grandma’s we recovered it really really easily and really inexpensively in the same green color and i really like not a big bed make sure i’m not a good at making a bed as you can tell but I’m one of my tricks I do not spend time I throw the covers up one of the tricks to making it look ok is always using throw pillows because it hides like my nasty pillow cases that are in no way fancier nice at all and I like having a pop of color at the end of the bed so instead of splurging on a blanket which can be really expensive for king size bed this is just a scrap of fabric that I got from fabric land for like five dollars I didn’t even have it I just fold it it serves no purpose other than to give a pop of color at the end of the bed you can see my kids have been climbing on my bed all day it looks horrible i should fix that before the video I apologize for that we just roll with it here anyway we went to like you this past weekend and we actually got these new end tables.
Which I love are in tables before were like filing cabinets that we used for ever because they worked but i really like these ones because they’re sort of open and I’m like this storage I’m like everything else I’ve storage when I was like why don’t we just have something that looks a little more open so it’s not so so much furniture in here so I totally went with that one and i love it because they’re still storage in here but anyways we also picked up this so much it kind of like we this bed is just a plain old mattress and box spring that we had and we made this headboard using plywood and covered it with quilt batting and then covered it with a white material we stapled it behind and then we drilled holes in it to add buttons to give it a custom look the button kit you can get from any fabric store and we used with the same fabric we used for the curtains that I made and the pillows and the same fabric that we covered for just staple gun on around be like on cork board anyway so it looks really nice but I thought like the bed just sort of floated and you’d like a footboard so this was a media center at ikea it was really inexpensive and it’s the perfect size at six feet to have as a footboard or like a bench at the end of the bed and it has storage i put magazines in those spots and then we have like storage now it’s sick tag heuer and i love it and it’s part of the hens collection so it matches are really an inexpensive dresser that we’ve had for a really long time another really inexpensive project that i didn’t hear when we first moved in because I had no money and we had nothing for the walls are these bristol board butterflies i just downloaded a template from google images of butterfly templates.
And then I traced it onto the bristol board and cut them out glued them on to push pins and then stuck them in my wall in a random pattern and they like that because you use push pins are kind of stuck out from the wall so it gives it that nice shadowed wall applique look and it was free speaking of budget this was an old fireplace that i found on kijiji which is a lot like craigslist was really beat up and in pretty bad shape but a couple quick coats of spray paint and it looks awesome and it’s a great holder for our TV she was a little small for this to you but that’s okay i have a fireplace in my bedroom who like I said it was really really inexpensive but a quick coat of white paint can fix anything I’ve painted so much in this room the chair the lamps the fireplace paint can’t fix anything and it’s really inexpensive another inexpensive thing I did in the room recently was this i wanted a full length mirror but i could not find a white one anywhere so that my family’s wanted target was ten dollars it’s one of those behind the mirror behind the door mirrors but the problem was it was just playing so also a target i saw these you’ve probably seen them a lot of times you know these wall applicate things you can get there pretty cheap and they kind of stick on they have these stickers on the bottom on the back and you can put them like in any way you want i justjust put it in this design but I think it gives the mirror more like.
I don’t know a prettier look I guess I don’t know what my husband doesn’t like it but whatever i have a full-length mirror and I think it looks kind of neat there’s a little bit different not just a plain mirror and again that was like under twenty dollars for that I always have loved to have fresh flowers but they’re expensive so one a fake flag not like a fake flower person but a fake flower that looks kind of real or always hydrangeas I think that’s what these are called you know those fake hydrangeas there’s the one you could actually even get real dried ones but they’re the one fake flower that in my opinion looks real esque so those aren’t real but i like having flowers and I don’t want to have to spend money for flowers all the time so I have fake ID ranges I know but anyway so those families and quick decorating tips those are letters that is just found at the dollar store and spray painted white we hung them on with nails and then filled and painted again so I mean the decor in this room was really really inexpensive and it’s one of my favorite rooms in the house hope you had some tips that you could learn to remember the 357 rule I forgot to tell you symmetry so important i’ll show you really really quickly symmetry is the trick every designers triple the designers you don’t know how to design use symmetry and what that means is if you have a table on one side you want a table of equal height on the other side lamp lamp centering it the room you can see my three my 357 really keep three things on the dresser three things on the dresser and just sort of balance your all your focal points so in your room your bed is usually your focal points you want it in the middle and then you want even things on either side to create symmetry quick tip you probably already know if you really know how to decorate you don’t need to use symmetry but i don’t so I do it looks okay so anyways those in decorating tips we’ll see you next time
