- Creative DIY Ideas-Sure, you can paint your bedroom walls white, or up the ante with color. But sometimes, that just isn’t enough. Maybe you want a little more drama or a lot more color, or just to show off your creativity. If you’re looking for DIY ways to reinvent the style of your bedroom, check out the following 10 ideas.In the room featured here from Room Decor Ideas, a pair of large carved angel’s wings mounted over the bed is guaranteed to capture the eyes—and draw comments—from anyone entering the room. While the wings have undeniable appeal, if your style is a little less heavenly, you could achieve a similar effect with large pieces of architectural gingerbread. This is a great (and easy!) way to give your bedroom impact, and it’s suitable for renters.
- Go Graffiti -Here’s a look from Critical Cactus guaranteed to appeal to just about any teenager, but if you love the edgy urban style, you can use it in the master bedroom as well. Get out the spray paint and have at it— but unless you’re an experienced graffiti artist, practice your technique on cardboard before aiming the can towards your walls. Write your name, a phrase or a song lyric; use every color of the rainbow or stick with black, it’s entirely up to you.
- Walls of Wood -If you have access to old pallets or distressed wood from a barn, fence or other wooden structure, don’t toss it into the fireplace. Instead, use the wood to create a fabulous full-wall headboard like this one from Lushome. For the ultimate in cozy rustic style, keep the paneling going right across the ceiling. If you just want to add some primitive vibes to an otherwise contemporary room, stop a few feet above the height of your mattress.
- Paint Without Painting-Have you been wondering what to do with a collection of paint strips or chips from the home improvement center? Or are you just wanting to add a wild and unusual shot of color and pattern to your bedroom walls? Head to your local Lowe’s or Home Depot, and ask the paint department to save all of the old paint strips that would otherwise be tossed when manufacturers change their offerings. Then, use small dots of poster putty to adhere the strips to your walls. You can create an ombre effect, make a rainbow or stick with just one color family like this room from Design Sponge. This is another idea that’s great for renters.
- Tin Up-Who said gorgeous hammered tin tiles are only for bathroom walls or kitchen back splashes? Take a look at the bedroom shown here from Contour Interior Design. You’ll see that the self-adhesive tiles add just as much wow factor to the bedroom. Mix and match designs, or do the entire wall with one pattern—whichever you like best. This is a great weekend project, but be sure to measure carefully before you start, and remember, tin is sharp.
