These easy decorations are good for offices, bedrooms, and dorms! They are so simple to make and only take five minutes at a time. These can also be easily hung up with sticky tack, tape or nails. I bought these frame cutouts at a thrift store and painted them according to the color code I was using. You can also buy the frame cutouts at Walmart as well. I typed and printed a couple favorite quotes of mine, decorated them with gel pens ,(again matching my colors) and taped them to the back of the frame, creating a simple decoration!

Mod Podge Drawer

A great way to freshen up your furniture is by adding scrapbook paper or book pages to your drawers and shelves. Here's how I did mine: I cleaned out a drawer of mine. See how boring it looks? I'm about to make it better! I stained some sheet music with tea for a couple days to get a browned antique color to the pages.
I used a sponge brush to smear mod podge in the drawer, and careful laid the pages inside. I also ripped some strips and layered the bottom.
Next, I put all of my hair supplies inside and admired the handiwork!
I love it because it gives a vintage, aged look. Perfect decor for my bedroom! Thanks for reading!
