15 Ways To Decorate Your Room This Summer

If you have started your summer vacation (are you on summer vacation yet? I really hope you are!) you probably already know that it doesn’t take too long to start getting antsy. Like, you’ll have a week (give or take) of full-fledged summer laziness in which you watch TV, lay around on the couch, and do nothing, basically, that bears any societal value. But then, this free time tends to grow stale.

If you’re lucky, you’ll have a summer internship or part-time job to fill this void. But if you don’t have an internship or job–or if your schooling career has made it so that any free time you do have makes you feel itchy–might I suggest rehab to you?

Not that kind of rehab. Room rehab! Summer is a perfect time to finally get started on that DIY room project or revamp you’ve been meaning to do for a while, because, well, what else are you going to do? Plus, if you’re heading to college in the fall, it means that you’ll have the coolest dorm on your hall. So, check out these cool room projects to try out this summer: 

1. Are you a monogram person? If so, this is a super cute tutorial that you can use as the main decoration in your room:diy-flower-monogram

2. I’m obsessed with this little reading nook–all you need to set it up is curtains and a curved shower rod:

3. And, of course, a comfy cushion to sit on (which, in this case, looks like a dog bed):
