Hiya,

I REALLY REALLY hate my room..

Its boring and i dont like the wooden furniture :P

I want it to have a sort of flowery theme (see the pictures) and have metal/white furniture with colour full things in it.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Anyone know where to get some furniture thats not to expensive?

I got some things for my birthday which i love and want to use for my new room design

if you live in the us, walmart sometimes has some furnature that isn't too expensive. but if you're going to replace all of your furnature it'll still prob cost alot. and you could always shop for things online, my one friend did that and she got a good price for everything but she doesn't remember what site she bought it off of. You could always paint your current furnature white.

in my room i used to cover my desk, and dressers with photos, and collages. you're room is nice and it looks like you have a lot of space to work with... if you want more room maybe try to move your desk so that it is against both walls...idk if that made any sense or not. lol


whenever i rearrange my room i draw out my room on paper and draw dif ways to kindof get an idea of what it'll look like. lol



good luck!

I tried to do some funky things with your pictures - edit and whatnot, but apparently I am not that photo shop savvy so I will try my best with out editing the pics...

Your room is really cute, I just think there is a bit too much furniture and furniture that is not being utilized properly.

For this view, I would remove the small bookshelf since it is not being utilized to it's potential. It seems small and awkward when put beside the big shelf. I would instead move the big dresser to the center of the wall it is on.

Next, I would re-position the desk. Put it in the corner so the "L" is flat against the wall...the corner of the "L" is in the corner of the room. Since you have a bookshelf on your dresser, I would remove the books from your desk and use that as your vanity and remove the vanity you are using now. You can use the drawers to store you beauty products and use decorative baskets to store things on top. Move your mirror over to your desk.

I really like the flower pictures you have. I would choose one wall as a focal point wall and paint it a bold color (maybe a pink taken from the pictures).

Your lamp is great and I like how it has all the colors of your bedding in it.

A great area rug would help soften up your room. You could get cool ones for less at wal-mart, target etc...and you should be able to find one with all your colors in it.

You look like you have a great window :) I would try to soften it with some curtains .

Here is a picture of my computer room...taken shorty after I re-decorated it after buying my 1st house this past year:

It's not finished in this picture...but just to give you an idea I bought these lime green curtains for $10 at wal-mart and I bout the rug for $36 at wal-mart.

For your furniture you could paint it (if you are allowed). I would probably go white, especially if you decided on a bold accent wall...the contrast will pop.

I hope I was able to help you out a bit!! Good luck and be sure to post pics when you are done :)

instead of buying all new furniture, you could sand down the stuff you have now and paint it white, then you'll have more money for other decorations and stuff.
