5 Quick DIY Ways To Update Your Bedroom



Reinvent Your Bedside Table

Been eyeing those marble effect everything that’s making rounds in all major home decor stores? Why not re-decorate your bedside table with the same effect, and give your room a nice elegant touch instantly? It’s pretty simple! All you need is some marbled contact paper- you’ll find it at a specialty craft store, and once you work on it, it’ll be almost impossible to tell that your tabletop isn’t marble!





Bring in the Nature

There’s no better way to add a nice feel of freshness to your indoor space than getting in some greenery! Make use of the space above your headboard to hang some frames that contain your very own DIY’ed pressed leaves. You can make use of any fresh leaves, spend a little time pressing them and framing them, and you’re pretty much done!

And if you’d like to take things to the next level, you can also bring in some indoor plants or tiny succulents that work wonderfully on your bedside table.





DIY Candles

Love having scented candles in your room? Take them up a notch by spending a little more time on them. Get your hands on the basic plain ones and visit your craft store for some engraving tools, rubber stamps, doilies, laces, glitter and any other essentials you might want to add and let your creativity run loose. Look up different designs that work well with your bedroom decor and get started!





Stencil It

Probably one of the simplest and pocket friendly ways to decorate your bedroom, especially if you don’t have a lot of time and still want that little ‘new’ feel, is to get your hands on some stencils, some paint and spend a couple of hours on the weekend on a simple DIY stencil art project. You can also create your own stencils by printing out some patterns online and cutting them out. You’ll be amazed at how these are so simple yet work so wonderfully.





Fur It Up

Fur pillows may be expensive, but you can whip up a cover for yourself easily by simply measuring the sides of your pillow and getting your hands on some fur fabric for an easy sewing project.
