It is the first thing we see when we open our eyes, and the last thing we see before we retire for the day; bedrooms are our safe haven. It’s our happy place. Whether you’re messy or a cleanliness freak, a Beatles lover or a One Direction fan, nothing tells your story better than your room. Our personal bedrooms define us; reflect our personalities.
So why not let our bedroom be our style statement? Don’t let the drab blank walls depress you. It’s time to give your room a sassy makeover.
Experiment with these unique Do It Yourself (DIY) ideas that will add a spark to your decor!
