I’m trying to refresh and redecorate my bedroom…
Redecorating always start with the bed. I’ve been using the same few sets of bedsheets since I was young; lately I bought some new sheets to refresh the look of my room. I’m not really a person that likes to make my bed so I don’t have useful tips in that department. But I found a pretty useful video from Crane & Canopy, a company that specializes in luxury bedding, that teaches how to make your bed.
Having to live in the room I’ve grown up in, there’s a lot “stuff” that’s hoarding up space as well. I really want to make my room more minimalistic so it’s a rather long process. I’m going to start with clearing up my desk and adding a new decorative: in particular, a new vase/pencil holder.
- Wool Yarn
- Copper Acrylic Paint
- Paint brush
- An old cup
I had some really old and childish cups that I decided to use for this little project. Then, I measured the height of those cups and cut out a strip of paper in that size. To match my new sheets, I cut out triangles in them and began to paint it with acrylic paint. (You could choose to paint onto the cup directly but I didn’t trust my painting skills lol).
I’ve been really liking the copper or metallic look so I used a copper paint rather than a typical spring color. Once it dried, I taped it onto the cup.
I didn’t have any flowers at my house and I didn’t want to buy any. So using wool, I decided to make dandelions. I wrapped the wool around my fingers a couple times before tying it in the middle and then cutting the loops. With the wire, I stuck it into the wool to make the stem.
I’ve really intended for it to be a vase but I find this fitting as a pencil holder too. This is a very small step towards redecorating my bedroom but I feel this corner of the room looks pretty refreshing already.
How do you like to redecorate your room for the spring?
