Room Decorating Ideas . In this tutorial I’ll show you more than 10 amazing ideas to decorate your room. Ready? My room is so boring! Wait… Let’s do this! Hey loves! As promised I have a room decor tutorial for you, where I’m going to show you more than 10 epic ideas to spice up your room! And this video does not only include decorations, but also a complete room transformation because I warn you, I went all out and completely transformed my room from plain and boring to absolutely beautiful. For the first DIY I decided to beautify my plain white furniture. And since we’ll be using paint it’s very important that you protect the working area. You will need a paint brush, sponge applicators, masking tape, primer and paint. I’m going to paint 5 drawers, 2 in pink and 3 in aqua blue.
I’ll also add little white dots on top, which will look adorbs, just wait for it! So let’s start with the first drawer. We’re just going to paint the front, so to keep that neat edge we need to protect the inside with the masking tape. Make sure your furniture is clean and dry and you’re set to start painting. Well, first we have to apply primer which assures that paint sticks firmly to the furniture and will last us many years. Leave the primer to dry completely and finally here comes the fun part-color! Let’s start with this pretty pink.

Give the paint a stir and then just paint the front of the drawer and the side edge. I love how with paint your can totally transform a room for such a low price. Let’s move to the blue paint. I love this blue-aqua, it’s so beautiful! Apply one even coat and let the drawers dry for a day. Then apply another coat. My paint was actually quite thick and one coat would do the job but I still decided to go for two. And here are all my painted drawers-so pretty! Leave them dry completely before you start drawing the dots. Here I am marking where each dot should be-I went for 3 inches between the dots and 1.5 inches between each row of dots. To make a perfect dot I am using a big circle puncher. Make a circle hole in a piece of a masking tape to get this neat dot stencil. Stick it on the drawer and paint the inside of the dot with a sponge applicator dipped in white paint. The perfect dot! If you want the dotting to go faster you can also just make them using a sponge applicator as it’s shape is rounded. But I really wanted mine to look perfect so I took time for it. My blue drawer is done and look how beautiful it is! And here is the pink one finished too! All my drawers are done and I can’t even explain how happy I am with them. Let’s put them in place! I love how the white dots connect the painted drawers with the rest of the furniture which I kept white. I adore my new furniture! For the bedding I chose a simple white one with pink accents saying love is in the air. Oh yeah! I also got this textured blanket for when it gets a bit chilly. And I love to decorate my bed with pillows, a lot of pillows! Since they can actually be quite pricey, I made this gorgeous smile and chevron pillows myself.

I’ll show you how to make the smile one first. To make it you will need an empty pillow case, which you can get for very cheap, scissors, fabric glue and wool. Take your wool and write anything you like, I decided to write the word smile on my pillow because you know what they say: just smile and the world will smile with you. Once you are happy with how the word looks like just take your fabric glue and stick the wool in place. Lift it up, apply a bit of glue and press the wool down on the pillow case. In the end I am adding a little spiral above the letter “I” to represent the dot. And we are all finished with the adorable Smile pillow. This project is literally done in 2 minutes and it doesn’t really get any cuter! You can also make this pillow for a friend and maybe write his or her name on for a beautiful personalized gift. But I am keeping this one for myself! Another idea is a chevron pillow. You’ll need a white pillow case, masking tape, a pot for color, sponge applicators or a paint brush, scissors and fabric paint. If you want to protect the edges of the pillow like me, stick masking tape pieces along all the four sides. Now make the first chevron row by sticking masking tape in a chevron pattern. Then stick another chevron row right above this first one and add another above that one. Peel away the middle row and you get the perfect chevron row stencil, which we’re going to color later. I love this technique because it gives you the perfect parallel chevron rows and neat pillow in the end. Okay, our chevron stencil is all ready for painting. I decided for pink and blue, surprise, surprise, to match my room. First I am making a blue row using a sponge applicator. For a crisp and neat edge I recommend to move from the tape towards the center of the row.

That way you prevent the color from leaking under the tape causing a messy chevron edge. When all the rows are colored, peal away the masking tape to reveal the perfect chevron pattern. You can use more than two colors or even just one for a more classic chevron pillow. I love making my own decoration for the room because I can tailor them to suite my room perfectly. You can stop here because it already looks fantastic but I decided to color the edges too. Protect the freshly painted chevron pattern with the masking tape and apply the color along the sides. Remove the tape, leave your beautiful pillow to dry for a few hours and you are ready to decorate your room with this masterpiece. I really like how these pillows make my bed not just incredibly cosy, but also absolutely gorgeous to look at. Ok, my bed is pretty but there’s stil a lot of room on my desk and dresser so let’s make some quick decorations to put on those. For this lovely colored sand cactus you will need some sand preferably white, cactus, bigger glass, food coloring, toothpicks, a few more glasses or pots for the sand and something to stir the sand with. Distribute the sand between glasses, I have four of them as I also have 4 food colors. Time for the fun part – coloring the sand! Take a small amount of water and mix in a bit of color. I have blue, pink, green and yellow. Pour the colored water in the sand and mix well to distribute the color evenly. If you put the food color directly into the sand glass the color won’t incorporate evenly.

Trust me I tried it. It’s much better to mix it with water first. How pretty do these look! I love them, I just want to eat them! Okay, now you have to let the sand dry completely… and then it’s time to make a pretty sandy house for our cactus. Starting with green, off you go into the glass! I put my sand in little plastic bags just so it’ll be easier to pour. Place the cactus on and let’s continue with pink. I love plants but let’s be honest all my plants die, so I figured a cactus is a low maintenance plant that gives life to your room but doesn’t require much time. That’s perfect for me. Look how beautiful sandy waves we’re getting! I am absolutely in love with this decor idea. Looks stunning and I had so much fun making it. But be careful with cactuses, these guys can be really mean! A cute butterfly lamp, anyone? For this one you’ll need a plain lamp, a bunch of colorful butterflies and a glue. We are going to decorate the lamp cover with these shiny friends. I am starting on top – All you have to do is put a drop of glue on the back of the butterfly and stick it on the cover. Unique lamps can be quite expensive, whereas this plain one cost me around 4 dollars and I also got the chance to make it exactly how I like it! I bought these butterflies on the internet for a couple of dollars, so 6 bucks for this pretty lamp – not bad I’d say. The top part is covered with the flying beauties so let’s continue on the sides. To make the lamp cover stay in place while working
