DIY Room Decor Ideas . Ann here, I’ve got some new fun bedroom decoration DIYs for you. If you want to learn how to make something fun and fresh for your dorm space, or for your bedroom, then keep on watching. All right guys, so for this first DIY I’m going to show you how to make a nightstand for your bed. To make the nightstand, it’s super easy. All you would need is a small table as your base and then, for the main top, a tabletop, we’re using the suitcase. So, if you want more of a permanent hold, I suggest for you to use a permanent double-sided tape or use E6000 to glue the top to the bottom, together. I love my table. It acts more like of a storage space for me. You know, I can hide away anything that I want to keep to myself in that space.
You know, nobody can touch it or grab it or take it. Especially when you’re living in a dorm space, you don’t want your roommates to just take whatever they want unless you’re okay with it. Other than that, you can decorate the top as a regular table. It’s super cute and I just think it’s the most adorable little nightstand ever. (cheery pop music) All right guys, so for DIY number two, I found inspiration when I was in the craft store. Usually I go into the craft store to buy one thing and then I just come out with a whole bunch of stuff because I get so inspired every time I go shopping (laughs).
DIY Room Decor Ideas : Minimal & Easy
I saw this gold wall decal in the store and I was thinking about making those feathers that I had last year on my wall. A lot of you guys have been asking about that. So finally, I’m gonna how you guys how to make that. And, for those of you guys who are drawing-challenged, I am also going to show you guys how you can make some easy wall decals to decorate your space. For those of you guys who don’t like to draw, making abstract shapes are pretty cool and interesting. All you have to do is just use a ruler and trace out different style shapes. Get super creative with this because once you stick it on your wall, it really depends on, you know, how you lay it on your wall. I like to lay it in clusters. It’s definitely more on the modern art side. Okay, so now we’re going to cut it out. (scissors crunching) We’ve got some shapes cut out and now it’s time to peel off the backing and tape them onto the wall.
All right guys, so I’m going to make the feather shape and now, if you guys want a decal, I will have it available on my blog. The link is below this video but as for now, I’ll show you how to make it or I’ll show you how I make it. It’s pretty easy. I made a little line going up, like a little curvy line, just like that. And then, for the feather part, you can make it like this and you want to have it go in a sweeping motion. Like wispy lines, just think of it that way. So, if you guys really don’t want to draw your own then try using the template that I have on my blog. So, I’m going to cut this out. Now, I’m going to stick them on the wall. All right guys, this last DIY is really fun. We’re going to make a clock. I’ve never made my own clock before but I’m excited to do this. So, if you have a box that you like, it can be a shoe box, a decorative box. I will be using this as my box and then, I have a little clock kit here. You can find this at a craft store or you can order this online. So, the first thing I’m going to do, and this all depends on what kind of design you want to go for, I took out some gold spray paint and I spray painted the sides of this box. The first thing we’re going to do is create a hole in the center of the box. So, where you want the front of your clock, you’re going to create a hole in the center. All right, if you guys remember my DIY, my faux-marble desk DIY, I did last year, I have some faux-marble decal left that I’m going to use and cover the front part of my box.
So, I’m going to lay out my decal with the paper side facing me and then, I’m going to lay the box down and see how much I will need to cut. Now remember, you need a folded edge so that way you can fold in the decal and show a clean line on the sides. Once you cut out your decal paper, be careful with this part because it’s time to stick that paper on. So, it’s a bit tricky. What you’re going to do is work in small sections at a time. Take out some sort of card that will help you flatten the edges as you’re pulling out the paper. And then, carefully, lay the sticky paper onto the box. Now, as you’re doing this, just do it in small sections at a time. Take your card and just sweep it back and forth. (cheery pop music) Now, you want to puncture another hole where you had the last hole. And then, now, we’re going to connect the clock together.
