3 ROOM DECOR DIY for Dorm or Apartment | ANN LE
(playful music) Hi, everyone, it's me, Ann.
This week I'm going to do aseries of back-to-school DIYs and some tips so intoday's video I have a lot that I want to cover with you guys so let's go ahead and get into this.
Usually when you're renting a place, you're very limited to what you can do to the walls, so this is a great idea to add some color or somepersonality into your space.
What you will need are some canvases.
I'm going to start withthree blank canvases.
You will need a paint of your choice, and I will be using spray paint.
Lastly, I bought some leaves online which I will link below this video.
Alright, so this firststep, I'm going to spray on my paint, and I want tocreate a gradient effect.
I'm going to spray the bottom of my canvas and as you gradually go up on the canvas, lift your paint can away from the canvas.
Let your paint dry, andafter it's nice and dry, it's time to apply theleaf onto the canvas.
What you want to do is lay on some glue to the back of your leaf, and then put that on top of your canvas.
Flatten the leaf out on your canvas and let it set to drybefore hanging it up.
(playful music) Alright, guys, so forthis next DIY, I got this wooden plank from myhome improvement store, and we're going to make a couple of shelves to put on the wall.
You can get this cut atthe home improvement store.
Just tell them whatmeasurements you prefer.
For me, I'm going to havethis cut one piece bigger than the other so thatway I can hang them up and they can have a stacked look.
You will need some sturdystrings to cup up and tie in order to hang up your shelves.
The length of the stringsdepend on how long you would like the shelvesto hang on your wall.
(playful music) Alright, guys, so thisnext DIY is super unique.
I was inspired by some of the stuff that I saw at an Urban Outfitters.
If you guys have evervisited Urban Outfitters, they always have like,things that look DIY, and it looks really, really neat.
You are going to need some table legs.
I ordered mine from Ebayand if you are interested, I will try to find the linkand link it below this video.
Aside from that, you will need E6000.
You will need a cardboard boxthat's big enough as a table.
I'm using a moving box that I found at my local hardware store, and you will also needsome extra cardboard.
Alright, so the first step is to cut the flaps off of the original box.
Some tools you will need is a box cutter with some sharp razors,and you also need a ruler.
We're going to cut outsome cardboard pieces to cover all four sides of the box.
And it's going to add more structure and sturdiness to your table.
So after you cut out all your pieces, you want to glue them to the box.
You want four pieces on the outside and two pieces on the inside.
Let that dry overnight,and after that's dry, we're going to glue on the table legs.
With some E6000, you wantto apply that to the top of your legs, and then attachit to the bottom of your box.
Now you have yourself a cardboard table.
This table is truly goingto be a conversation starter when you have peoplecoming into your room, your dorm space, your apartment.
It's really interesting.
It's one of a kind, definitely unique.
I love it, and if you're looking for something unique,you will love it, too.
