Design on a Dime - Teenage Room/Adult Room

This was for my other cute step-daughters room. She is 17 and chose a "French" type room.

What we did:

1. Found old lamps that were white and burgundy. Painted them black and put a soft yellow and black trim around the lamp shade along with some black flower ribbon.
2. Got a basic cork board at walmart for $4. Sprayed it all black then put the ribbon trim around it.
3. Bought old pictures at a thrift store with the glass still in them. Sprayed the entire picture -- glass even sprayed (Frame black, glass silver). Then went to hobby lobby  and found some items on sale for about $15 (aluminum and wood items). I glued them on the frame to make a cool 3-D art picture for her room.
4. Had an old bedding set (used to be a waterbed years ago). It was an orange wood and we painted it all black.

The room turned out fun and the girls and I had a great time doing it. It showed them how much you can do without buying new items.
