A little while ago, I talked about reorganizing your dresser. But it’s not only important to have your dresser look pretty on the inside, but pretty on the outside too. Follow my easy guidelines and you will have a spiffy dresser in no time! Note: Be sure to get parents permission before making major changes to your furniture.
It’s amazing what a new paint color can do. Pick a color that suits your room, and apply a few layers of it to your dresser.
Want your dresser to reflect your personality? Or maybe you just want to change it up? Take off all old handles and knobs, then replace them with beautiful new ones! You could get ones that are plain wooden or metal, or you could jazz it up by putting in adorable knobs. I’ve even seen some with animal heads, flowers, and more!
Take a look at what you want to put on top of your dresser. Make sure that you don’t over clutter the top of it.
I hope these ideas worked for you! Comment below if you tried any of my ideas.
With back-to-school time just around the corner, many of us are facing crazier schedules, less sleep, and more homework. In the middle of the busy-ness, though, we all need time to relax! Today, I want to share some ideas for making your bedroom into a relaxing escape where you can sleep easier and feel rejuvenated for the new school year. Ready for some ideas?
Battery-operated candles offer soft, gentle glows that will create an instantly relaxing environment for sleeping and resting. Grab some flameless candles and sprinkle them around your room!
Pillows & Blankets
Nothing says relaxation like a cozy pile of pillows and blankets! Try piling plush goods on your bed to make a warm nest for easier Zzs after a day at school. For an easy DIY pillow, check out B’s post here.
Dim the lights while you start preparing for bed - it tells your body that it’s time to rest. This post is your one-stop-shop for all things lighting!
Playing nature sounds or instrumental music helps some girls relax and unwind before bed. For others, gentle music can improve concentration when studying. Use your device or find a speaker or CD player to pipe soothing sounds into your room.
When it is time to drift off to sleep, place some drops of lavender essential oil onto a washcloth and place it next to your head. Some girls may opt for a diffuser, which softly spreads the scent throughout the room.
I hope you enjoyed this post!
Plants are so pretty. God created a wide range of them, and each one has their own style, size, color, beauty, and purposes. Today, I have compiled a list of plants that will spruce up your room, as well as purify your air. Check it out!
Note: Some people are allergic to certain plants, so make sure that you get one that is right for you and your family.
Another note: All the plants in this list are toxic to eat (other than the Spider Plant) so be sure to keep them away from small children and pets.
2. Gerba Daisy
3. Dendrobium Orchid
4. Spider Plants
5. Rubber Plants
All the plants in this list are easy to take care of. They only require partial sun, and a little water. Go to a garden center and pick which plant would look best in your room, then put it in a medium size pot on your desk of nightstand.
Thanks for reading! I hope you found a plant you like. Email as at email@example.com to ask for more air purifying plant ideas.
Here are five truths about bedrooms I believe every girl should know. I hope they are both helpful and freeing!
1. Your Bedroom Should Reflect You
Your bedroom doesn't need to look like your sister's, your friend's, or a Pinterested room. Your room should be unique to you and perfect for your specific needs, regardless of whether it looks on-trend on utterly mismatched.
2. You Don't Need a Huge Bedroom
Yep, shocking but true. Unless you live in a closet, you'll most likely be just as happy in a small or medium sized bedroom as in a large one. But, if it feels like the walls are closing in on you, check out B's post on making your space feel bigger.
3. Lighting is Key
Lighting can make or break your bedroom! Discover tips for how to use lighting to enhance your bedroom here.
4. Cluttered Spaces Cause Stress
Cluttered or disorganized spaces can increase your stress and anxiety! For a peaceful sleeping and studying environment, keep surfaces clean and don't over-decorate walls.
5. Beautiful Bedrooms Can Be Free
You don't need to spend a lot of money to acheive a bedroom you love! Try making your own decor, rearranging existing decor, organizing, using lighting in different ways, and more!

Do you share a room with your siblings? Do you have to get their permission before redecorating your room? Well, here are a few ideas that you can try to get the room you want and keep your siblings happy too.
Supplies you need:
* A calm head
* A gentle presence
So, let’s say that you have a way that you want to decorate, but your sister has a way that she wants to decorate and you can’t agree. Grab the other siblings that live in your room, and have them vote. Be sure to include a “no change” option, just Incase they like your room the way it is. Note: This only works if you share a room with 3 or more siblings. If you don’t, rope in mom and dad to get their opinion.
2. Meet in the middle
Try to compromise with your siblings. Do you want to paint your room blue, but your sibling wants the room to be purple? Try settling in the middle by agreeing to paint the walls purple, but also getting some blue decor for the walls.
3. Talk it out
Why do you want to change what you do? Why doesn’t your siblings want that too? Talk (don’t yell) with them to understand why. You might end up concluding your talk by coming up with a totally new bedroom plan that everyone loves.
I hope that you found these tips helpful. You might also like A’s post, titled “How to keep siblings from getting into your things”. It’s very helpful!
Does your room feel a bit dull and drab? Add some sparkle to your space by experimenting with scents! I love to use essential oils to change the mood in my bedroom. S
Here is my "cheatsheet" guide to different essential oils and what they are good for! Remember that these are rumored benefits and not a guarantee, and that you should get parent permission before you use essential oils.
There are lots of different ways you can use essential oils in your bedroom! I like to diffuse them in a special diffuser. You can also dab a few drops of the oil on a washcloth next to your bed before you sleep (this is a great way to use lavender oil), make an essential oil spray (find recipes online) or mix together baking soda and your oil(s) of choice in a cute jar (then, put the lid on and poke a few holes in it to let the scent permeate your room).
I hope you had fun exploring the world of essential oils with me!
Your bed is very important in your room. It’s where you sleep in the night, it’s where you sit in the day, and how you decorate it can show your personality. Today, I am going to give you some tips on how to spruce up your bed, and make it more cozy at the same time. Sit down (on your bed), read this post, then get started.
1. Undo and redo
Take off all pillows and pillow cases. Remove the cover and sheets. Throw it all in the wash, and walk away. When the sheets, covers, and cases are dry, fold them up nicely until you finish step 2. After that, put them back on your bed.
2. Flip your mattress
Check out this post to find out how.
3. Sort your pillows
What pillows do you need? What pillows are decorative? What pillows are hard and which pillows are soft? Decide what to keep, then get rid of the rest.

Colors are so rich and luscious. I could look at paint cards and color palettes for hours! We have lots of awesome color palette ideas on our 'Beautiful Bedrooms' Pinterest board. Today, I'll be sharing three gorgeous new color palettes for your bedroom, along with decorating ideas and accessories that would work best for each palette. Are you ready to get started?
This palette contains rich, gemlike colors that pair perfectly together for a bold bedroom. The shade of purple would make a dazzling wall color, with teal and light pink composing the accent details. Pair it with bold, elegant decor like mirrors, plenty of framed photos, and maybe even an Eiffel Tower or two.
Splash of Seaside
Bring some seaside flair to your bedroom with this everything-fun color palette. The coral would be fantastic on walls, paired with light teal and yellow accents. Make it pop with strings of seashells, bold curtains and drapes, and a Neon Jar!
Sparkles and Secrets
This more reserved palette exudes mystery, fantasy, and sophistication! Any of those colors would be perfect as a wall color, paired with accents in the other two tones. You can't go wrong! Try pairing it with soft fairy lights, delicate curtains, and plenty of pillows.
I hope you enjoyed exploring these stunning color palettes with me! Which one is your favorite?
I don’t like chores. I don’t like cleaning. I don’t like organizing. The only thing that I like to do in my bedroom is decorating. So I find it sorta easy to forget about the “chore like” part of room care. I especially forget the extra high, extra low, and hidden chores that so desperately need my attention. Today, I am going to make a list of these tasks for you (and myself) to use. Feel free to grab a pencil and paper to take notes. Let’s get started!
1. Flip your mattress
This is an easy one to miss. Every few years, get a parent to help you remove your bedding, flip your mattress, and put your bedding back. You will feel the results!
2. Reorganize your books
If you have any amount of books, it’s definitely handy to keep them organized (check out A’s post on that). Whether you already have a system, or nothing is in place, go through your books and try sorting them.
3. Sweep your baseboards
Next time you vacuum your floors, take a moment and detach the hose from your vacuum. Run it along the tops of your baseboards. (Check out my post, called “Get Those Too!” for a guide on thorough baseboard cleaning.)
4. Vacuum under furniture
Get some help from a parent and move your furniture to different locations. Vacuum where your furniture used to be, REALLY thoroughly.
5. Wash and replace pillows
If you are like me, every pillow that touches your hands will end up on your bed. Sort through your Leaning Tower of Pillozza and figure out what pillows go, what pillows stay, what pillows need a new case, and what cases need a new pillow.
6. Clean your blinds
Grab a feather duster, turn up the music, and run your duster along every blind. Let none go untouched!
7. Sort your shoes
Go through your shoe rack and be practical. Ask yourself these questions about each pair of shoes: Do they fit? Do they have good support? Do I like how they look? What occasions can I wear them for?
8. Replace burnt bulbs
Check every light bulb in your room and make sure they all work. Replace ones that are burnt and keep ones that are still shining. While your at it, clean all your light fixtures that you can. (You might also like A’s post, called “Let There Be Light!” where she discusses proper lighting.)
9. Wash windows
Head back to my post that I call “Get Those Too!” to see how to do this.
10. Get rid of the old
I know that this sounds very general, but I mean it in a very general way! Sort through your clothes (check out my post on cleaning your dresser), clean out your craft supplies (take a look at A’s post on making a pen holder), go through your toys and knick-knacks and decide what to keep.
I hope you found this list helpful. Comment below to tell us what you tried doing!
