Next in our DIY series, let’s take a good look at the Bedroom. Sometimes we feel that the room is so messy and cluttered, we might want to keep the door closed and keep it a completely private space, but for the wrong reasons. It is possible though with some simple ideas to convert it into a masterpiece, so that we are proud to show it off when showing guests around the house.
Turn a wall into art: Pick one of the walls, ideally the one that is visible as you enter the room and turn it into an eye-catching piece of art. Paint the base in a neutral shade and then plan what you want to create on it. If you have creative tendencies, you can draw and paint it yourself at leisure, or you can enlist the help of a friend who does. Keep in mind the colour scheme of the room and furniture before deciding the palette of the wall.
Blinds and curtains: Even if you feel hesitant to start on that wall immediately, one great way to add a splash of colour is to use the blinds and curtains. You have a lovely choice of fabrics, and with just some basic stitching skills, you can brighten up the room.
Create a side or corner shelf: Pick a basic design and build a side shelf or cabinet for yourself, to put away knick-knacks as well as store books for your reading in bed. This does not need too much work, and the simple pieces really look elegant. The biggest advantage is that you don’t have to depend on store designs and can create exactly what you need.
Storing earrings and jewelry and other items: These can be one of the biggest sources of mess in the bedroom, as it is tough to find a storage space for them that organizes them neatly as well as is easy to access. There are some great DIY ideas out there, that you can use just old items like a grater or an old stole or dupatta, and make a lovely arrangement for them. You will find some lovely ideas on this on this page.
We hope you find these ideas approachable as well as fun, and are planning to try something out soon. Don’t forget to check out our great tools that can help you out with painting, carpentry and other tasks at:
