I just recently moved and it was a big move — one that took me out of my childhood home in the suburbs and into a house in the city with my partner, her brother, and our three dogs. It’s a full house and in the last couple of weeks since our move, we’ve been working towards making it a home. It can be challenging having to take three separate design ideas into account when working on designing shared spaces, but the bedroom is one room in which my partner and I (luckily — I mean, seriously, couples break up over this) shared the same vision.
Once the walls were painted white to cover-up the leftover swamp, stomach flu-like taupe, we took a hard pause to review our shared Pinterest board (barf, I know), and decided on some affordable DIY versions of decor that would not only help us achieve our aesthetic goals, but also act as a bonding activity. Here are 10 DIY decor ideas we pinned to make for our bedroom.
This incredible customizable peg board, ideal for shelving solutions and hanging all sorts of knickknacks!
