|The finished design!|
It has been a few months now since I moved into my new house. Unfortunately, our family haven't had much money to decorate yet!
I love decorating rooms though; strolling around B&Q, picking up the Dulux and IKEA catalogues and immersing myself for hours in their pages, picking out the designs I like and day dreaming away. However, when money's a bit tight, there HAS to be an alternate option.
So I decided to do a bit of a creative centerpiece above my bed, to put me on until I have enough money to whip the paint brushes out again! I think that the finished look is lovely! I love The Beatles and music, so 'TAKE A SAD SONG AND MAKE IT BETTER' from 'Hey Jude' was definitely the right lyric for me.
All I needed was some card, scissors and old magazines. My magazine of choice is Heat. Being a big fan of the gossipy mag means I have a LOT of old copies lying about the house. All I did was make letter templates with the card then cut the right letters out of the colourful and pretty advertisements in the mags.
It is slightly time consuming though, but surely there is room in everyone's life for some arts and crafts every now and again! :)
So, if money is a bit sparse and you're looking for a cute way to personalize your bedroom space, why not try a bit of cutting and sticking?
