Too many people settle for the standard bedroom furniture that is available on the market today. This furniture shows minimal personality traits of the buyer as it is widely manufactured. However, there are ways in which you can introduce your personality into your bedroom and give it a makeover that you will be immensely proud of.

#1 Create your own furniture look
You could, for instance, paint your furniture in a color of your choice. Using chalk paint, you will not even have to put in the effort of sanding it back. Instead, you will be able to paint straight onto its surface after a quick clean with a damp cloth.
Chalk paint comes in a wide range of colors and brands, it is easy to use and can be mixed to provide a totally unique color for you. However, you will have to seal your paint when you have got your desired effect with either wax or water-based lacquer.
#2 Personalized bedding
Your personalization needn’t stop there, either. You can opt to have personalized bedding or throws made. For instance, you could have your very own t-shirt quilt made out of your old t-shirts. This means you will ultimately be recycling your favorite t-shirts without letting them go.
There are many associations between fond memories and the clothing that was worn at the time. Having a quilt such as this will not only provide you with a way of bringing back those memories to the forefront of your mind but will also provide you with a lovely warm and unique blanket.
#3 Make a statement piece for your floor
Of course, you most certainly should not forget about your flooring either. For this, you could make a statement rug either by crocheting a pattern or trying your hand at rag rug making. While you are using the front of your t-shirt for your quilt, the back of your t-shirt will be going spare.
Rag rug making is a process that has been going on since at least the early 1800s in the Americas and possibly before. There are various different methods that can be used depending on how you would like to have your rag rug turn out. The added bonus to this is that while most modern rugs require special care and cleaning, a typical rag rug will be machine washable dependent on size.
Even if you are working on a tight budget, you can add a touch of personality to your bedroom. Making a space yours has benefits other than providing you with a sense of pride and achievement. It can provide you with a feeling of belonging and inspire others to do the same.
The end result will ensure that you have a space that is completely unique to you, which you will find relaxing and comforting in every aspect as well as being easily cared for. Should you feel that you want to change anything you have created in the long term, you will know exactly how to go about it without the added expense of purchasing new furniture, bedding, or rugs.
