    Start big. Figure out what furniture you like and what furniture you despise. Furniture is very expensive so only get rid of something if you can't stand living with it anymore.

    Buy paint. Paint makes a huge difference. Try three toning your room by painting two walls a lighter color, two walls a darker color, then leaving your ceiling white. Paint is not too pricey, even if you do get a good kind.

    When you start painting lay out a tarp or newspapers and move all of your furniture to the middle of the room to avoid ruining anything. Open the windows if you can and take some breaks every so often to clear your head. Painting can take up to two days sometimes, and really is a lot of work.

    First up is bedding. Make sure that along with the comforter you get some matching sheets (they will come with a pillowcase also), a bed skirt, some matching throw pillows, a matching throw blanket, and some matching pillow cases. When people first walk into a room one of the things they immediately notice is the bed. You want yours to be great looking! You don't have to limit yourself to just one collection either. If there's a throw pillow that goes with another set, but looks just as good with the one you picked out get it! Keep your bed made and stuffed animals off. Your pillows will look much nicer and more mature.
