This was for my other cute step-daughters room. She is 17 and chose a "French" type room.
What we did:
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
2. Got a basic cork board at walmart for $4. Sprayed it all black then put the ribbon trim around it.
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.
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.
