Story - Updating an Old Bedroom

When children become young adults, they may look at their bedroom and prefer to update it. They don’t want their pre-adolescent room since they want to appear as a young adult. Usually, these rooms have pastel paint with smaller furniture probably with emblems or images on them.

Adding paint to a room’s walls is possibly the most dramatic and cheapest way to change a room. To do this, remove the furniture from the bedroom or move it away from the walls. If the latter is done, then cover the furniture with a sheet to prevent paint from splattering on it. Also, a sheet needs to be placed on the ground so paint doesn’t get on the floor. The young adult will need to tape off the edges that are not supposed to be painted. Finally, after the preparation work is completed, it is time to paint. A roller will be the best way of getting the most paint on the walls. The young adult will need to use a brush near the edges near the ceiling and the baseboards.

Another major task in order to create a new transformation of their bedroom would be to change the furniture to a more modern and mature look. There are two ways to go about this. One way is to buy furniture from a store or online that has a more grown-up look but that also appeals to the young adult’s style. If buying furniture is too expensive, there is another approach. Take the furniture and flip it. A young adult could possibly paint or spray paint furniture depending on the type of material it is made out of. With a small amount of money and a weekend, a teenager can change their bedroom from childish to chic.
