Bedroom decorating can be expensive if you buy everything ready-made. Instead, consider these simple bedroom decorating ideas you can make yourself. Create a Victorian canopy, or a lace mural along your walls. Find out how easy it is to create Victorian wall decor from a calendar and lace, or how to add dry flowers to your bedroom decor. Then put the finishing touches by weaving fabrics together when sewing pillows, curtains and more. All these bedroom decorating ideas are fun, and the results are stunning.
Note: Several of the bedroom decorating ideas below will be using fabric. When you go to your fabric store, choose a main fabric and an accent fabric. The main fabric will be used for the curtains and canopy and some of the pillows. The accent fabric (which should be a more solid pattern) will be used for the bedspread, curtain and canopy tie backs and some of the pillows.
Bedroom Decorating with a Victorian Canopy
This bedroom decorating idea adds the romance of a Victorian canopy to an ordinary bed. Begin by measuring the length and width of your bed, then add 10 inches to each measurement. Next go to your home improvement store and buy round wood poles to match your measurements (a total of 2 length and 2 width poles). Stain or paint your poles to match the color of your bed. Now, sew four strips of your accent fabric to create tying ropes. Use the ropes to tie two poles together at the corner, forming a cross at the end. When all four poles are connected, you will have a rectangle. Hang the rectangle from the ceiling over your bed using metal curtain tiebacks. Then sew a canopy using your main fabric, and add fabric tiebacks made from your accent fabric. This bedroom decorating idea is striking once complete, when all the colors suddenly come together.
Bedroom Decorating with a Lace Mural Wall Print
This simple bedroom decorating idea lends the romance of the Victorian age to your walls. Begin by painting your wall with a pastel shade. At your fabric store, buy a lace stencil. Then at your paint store buy Rust Oleum spray paint in a color of your choice. Stick the stencil to the wall using painters tape, and cover a wide area around the stencil to prevent spray splatter. In this way you can spray paint a lace mural print along your walls, around mirrors and pictures, and around windows. This bedroom decorating idea has no rules, so let your imagination run free.
Bedroom Decorating with Victorian Prints and Lace
This bedroom decorating idea is probably the easiest in this article. Simply buy a calendar with beautiful Victorian paintings prints that will suit your room. Then, at your craft store buy sheer lace fabric and picture frames. Next remove the paintings prints from the calendar and cut them to the size of the frames. Cut the sheer fabric to cover each print, then frame. Finally, paint the frames with the same spray paint you used to create the lace mural on your walls. This bedroom decorating idea will lend harmony to your wall decor.
Bedroom Decorating with Fabric
This bedroom decorating idea involves simple sewing. Basically the pillows, bedspread and curtains are all sheets of fabric that you either sew together into squares or rectangles, or sheets of fabric that you hem. For the curtains, be sure to make the hem on the top very wide, so you can slip a curtain rod through. Bedroom decorating with fabric really comes to life when you weave your main and accent fabrics together. Thus if the canopy is made of one fabric, use the another for the bedspread. For the pillows, you can even add additional, solid colors which match the rest.
Bedroom Decorating with Dry Flowers
This bedroom decorating idea can be ongoing. Every time you get roses, don’t throw them away. Instead, hang them upside down in a dark closet and let them dry. Then fill a vase with your dry roses. Read the step-by-step instructions on drying your roses. Not only is this bedroom decorating idea graceful, dry roses can be mixed with potpourri to add a blooming garden scent to your bedroom.
