    Choose a theme. Just because you can't paint doesn't mean that your room can't be themed. A theme can be something as simple as a few colors that go well together to something intricate like a Hawaiian theme. Embellish your theme with your bedding, curtains, and furniture if possible.
    • Making a furniture collage is a fun way to spice up old furniture. Glue or tape pictures from magazines or from your life onto your furniture. You can also buy a piece of cover glass for the top and stick the pictures under the glass if you're worried about gluing things to your furniture.
