Sometimes when I am sitting in my room, I feel like something needs to change. Maybe I want to buy some new clothes or I just want to redecorate my room. But redecorating can be so expensive. When I look on the Internet for cute decorative pieces to put in my room, it mostly costs over a € 50,00, which isn’t necessary. I’ll show you my favorite part of my room with some decorative pieces that were all under € 10,00!
A couple of years ago I changed my complete room and my wall became very empty. So I decided to put up two little shelves on my wall and I put some pictures and some other decorative pieces. The picture in the (upper) left frame is actually one of the cards I bought from my visit to FOAM museum. And what do you think about my clock? I didn’t like the simple clock so I just DIY’ed this one.
But how did I do that? I bought this simple clock for € 1,75 and took of the back of the clock. This way you will be able to get to the inside of the clock. I took out the part that tells you the time and I chose to decorate that. I used a piece of a newspaper, magazine photos and quotes. Don’t forget to put on the numbers from 1 until 12 on the clock (otherwise you have a clock but you still don’t know the time). Then I just put the clock back together and voilà!
And then there is something that’s maybe my absolute favorite thing at the moment. You may have seen them on Instagram but I got three little cactuses from Ikea and I am in love with them. And the greatest thing is: I don’t have to water them so much a normal flowers or other plants and they were only € 4,99! And when you go to Ikea, you can’t just leave with one thing… So I also got a flowerpot (which everyone has I am guessing). In this flowerpot I put a candle but you can also put in some flowers. And this cute flowerpot was only € 2,49.
I’ve wanted a chalkboard in my room for a while but I don’t really have room to hang a big chalkboard. So when I found some chalk paint for only € 7,75 I thought: Why not make a little chalkboard myself? I found an old piece of wood at home and painted it with the chalk paint. I used about three coats to make it look opaque. After it dried completely, I attached some thread to the back with some tape so I could hang it if I wanted to and my little chalkboard was finished.
I really loved finding these things to make my room complete and the cactuses are definitely my favorite. On the chalkboard I write a new quote every week to give me inspiration, motivation or just makes me laugh. I think I will always want to redecorate or switch up things in my room, but this is the perfect solution for it I think. Do you also want to redecorate your room and what’s your favorite piece of this post?
