-how to brighten up your room {with common objects}-


-hello-
Hi there, and welcome to my guide. (:
So about a year ago, I moved out of a room I’d been sharing with my younger sister and into my own bedroom in what used to be our office. It became apparent that my sister had owned a lot of our old room, including the decorations. I was immediately thrilled by the concept of being able to decorate my own room and set out to find ways to brighten up the space, it being unfortunately dark and wood panels. So here I will share my tips on –How to brighten up your room {with common objects}-!


-my tips-
A lot of the time when you get tired of your room and feel like you need to redecorate, it’s best to give it a sprucing up and maybe switch some furniture around.

-moving furniture : A lot of the time this can give you a fresh perspective on the room, no matter how big or small. It’s best to position your bed on the wall beside your door if possible, however with rooms such as mine it is not possible, because it has double doors that take up most of that room.

-sprucing up : “Sprucing up” has lots of different definitions, depending on who exactly you ask. My definition of it is to brighten your room up by adding and changing around. I will expound on this later. (:


-my ideas-
There are countless ways to spruce up your room and make it ideal and comfortable to live in. Your bedroom is supposed to be your “abode,” if I may, and should not stay messy all the time unless you are most comfortable with it that way. If you are ready to spruce up your room, you will need it to be clean.
Once you’re ready, here are some of my tips for brightening up your room with simple and common items.

-paper chain : Paper chains have been around for a while, yeah? Well, this is my own personal twist on the paper chain.
Take colorful scrapbooking paper and cut it into strips about 1-1/2 inches thick and five long (longer if needed or desired). Touch ends with the paper and tape them together with clear Scotch tape. Thread the next strip through that one and tape it the same way. Do this until you have a string long enough for what you plan to do with it. The chain is nice to hang over your bed or wherever you see fit.

-flowers in a vase : Flowers, especially nice bright ones, are the perfect touch to a room that needs brightening up. If you’re looking for bright colors, zinnias would be perfect, while for a subtler and lighter touch, sprigs of cherry blossoms or a few hydrangeas makes a beautiful addition. You can add in sprigs of other things, like long grasses, to make it look professional.

-butterflies on the wall : Butterflies are commonly associated with flowers and pretty colors and are beautiful to see. Try cutting out butterfly shapes in colorful (preferably patterned) paper with about three or four inches wingspan and gently fold them into an obtuse angle. Stick the angle of the butterfly to your wall and group several around it however you like.

-butterfly pencil holder : Those butterflies don't have to just stick to the wall! After resizing the pattern and tracing smaller butterflies, take a container suitable for holding pencils, and if desired cover it with paper or decoupage. Once your container is ready, take your little butterflies and use tacky glue to stick them around the rim of your container. This holder will be a cute, colorful addition to your desk or wherever you store your pens and pencils.
-tips : Small ceramic painted flowerpots make cute pencil holders, and the butterflies make a nice effect on them.


-more ideas coming soon-
I hope I was able to help with ideas to spruce up your room! (:
