Oh, How Pinteresting

Since I've moved into my new room I've gotten bored with my decor.  
Right now it's a mix of deep red, gold and black (with my white iron bed frame).
And I'm ready for something different.
However, my furniture is red, black, and white.  So I've got to find some way to make them work together.
Oh and I'm on a budget.
So I scoured Pinterest for some things I think would work well and wouldn't be too expensive to do.
Here's what I'm thinking.
Gallery wall and some cute, inexpensive DIY decor.

I like the wall on the left more than on the right
or this:

I'll probably do a mix of frames, prints, and lettering.
I also the idea of putting one or two of these on small canvas' on the wall.

I'd also love to scatter some of these around the bedroom and bathroom:

To incorporate a little more organization into the room and especially the bathroom, these cute little deals caught my eye:
This is an old coffee mug holder turned jewelry organizer.

Here's a paper towel rack turned bracelet holder:

Pretty sure I've shared this one before but it's so cute I'm sharing again.
It's a cookie sheet turned decorative tray:

And because I have a problem buying nail polish and need some way to organize them.
I found a spice rack turned nail polish organizer.
Most of this stuff I'm sure I can find at either a Good Will or Salvation Army and can spruce up with some paint to match the color scheme of my room.
Now I just need to get my butt in gear and actually do all these fun DIYs.
Linking up with Michelle for:

Have a great Wednesday! :)

I did those jars for my living room - they turned out so cute but make sure you get A LOT of paint. It's crazy how much they need.

I love all these pins! I am in the middle of sprucing up my bedroom right now too! I really want to paint it but I am getting married in June and will be moving out of my parent's house so I am not completely sure its a good idea to spend the money on painting it because I won't be there for long. I love the jewelry holder, I might try to make one of those!
