I’m currently in the process of personalising my bedroom. I’ve never been the kind of person who has walls plastered with posters or photo collages of my friends. Now, two months away from leaving for college, I’ve decided I want to make the place my own. The only problem is, I have no disposable money. I’m totally broke for all intents and purposes. Thus, a challenge is born.
At this point in my life I’ve all but replaced Google with Pinterest for many search options. The visual imagery and simple layout is so much more aesthetically pleasing than the search results Google brings up. But that being said, I’d never fully give up on Google. Google is my bae.

4. DIY Canopy
I don’t know about you but I’ve always dreamed of having a beautiful canopy floating over my bed. Now I finally can! There are tonnes of DIY canopies online but the rotating circular one is definitely my favourite. You might have the supplies at home, if not it may require a little spending. It’s an unbelievably project!
5. Make it Comfortable
After all it is your home. Add some blankets and cushions, even build a fort! Yes, some of these patterns will take a long time especially if like me you’re not a very experienced seamstress. I love the frayed denim quilt with the cute pops of colour, maybe I’ll find the time to work on that this summer.
