If you can’t, or don’t want to, fix things into the walls, try using a piece of wood (pine works well) and fix things onto that instead, like we’ve done in this video.

It could be hooks, ledges, mirrors - whatever inspires you. You can even paint or decorate the wood if you like. It’s mobile, too, so you can move it around the room as you like – and can even bring it along to your next place.

In this video, we’ll show you how we gave the window a make over with a painted-on shadow effect. Choose a deeper tone of your wall color for a subtle look, or do like we did and opt for something bright and abstract.

Things are whatever you say they are
Strictly speaking, this is a plant stand, but that hasn’t stopped it from being a fantastic hair and make-up station.

Exercise your creative thinking by using boxes or crates like building bricks to form a storage unit in any size and shape you like.
Don’t be afraid to experiment. Your room is the perfect place to express yourself!
