Room Decor



(Yes, that is Kim Possible’s bedroom. And if you don’t know who that is, SHAME ON YOU.)

As finals are approaching, I have decided to do what I do best: procrastinate. In my time wasting, I have realized how dull my room is, and have decided to spice it up a bit.

Now I have always wanted to be the person with pictures of me with friends all over my room and along my mirror like you see in the movies. However, I never seem to take pictures, and when I do…let’s just say I’m less than photogenic. Anyway, I don’t have many pictures where I am above the age of 8, so I found some other fun things to hang up. I have cards given to me, pictures that I or others have drawn, and my personal favorite, a bunch of pictures of hot guys my roommate gave meĀ šŸ™‚ *sidebar: randomly putting pictures of hot guys around the apartment for your roommate to find is a great birthday present!

Anyway, my point was that it could be anything, just as long as it is something you want to see everyday. Besides, the beauty of this project is that nothing is permanent. You will easily be able to take down a picture that has your now ex-boyfriend or ex-best friend in it if they have wronged you in any way.

Picture String (I know, creative name…What can I say? I have a gift)



String, twine, yarn, etc

Clothes pins (mini are best)

Thumb tacks/command hooks




1. Measure how long you want the string to be, and cut the string that length plus about two inches.

2. Tie bothĀ ends around the thumbtacks, and one in the middle. Stick one of themĀ in the wall.

3. Pull the string straight across the wall. You don’t want too much slack, but you don’t need to pull it extremely tight.


4. Stick the middle thumbtack in the wall, then the last one.

5. Hang up your pictures!


*This also looks really cool with multiple stands above one another
