ok, my room was oh-so-boring and i decided that i needed to spiff it up a bit
my first idea came when i was looking through a PB teen mag and saw these awesome feather lights that were like a zillion dollars. there were like a bunch of strands and they were hanging down one wall. i somehow thought i could use tinsel instead.  so after x-mas i bought a bunch of tinsel that was like onsale for 50 cents and came home and all i did was tape the tinsel to the line where the ceiling and wall meet.  i put a bunch of strands on to cover the whole wall and it turned out like this...
and my friend helped me with the other project!  I have a bunk bed set up (except my bottom bed is on the other side of the room) so underneath the top bed is just space. so my dad helped me put in an eye hook at each end of the wood above the last board.  i then took a sheet that matched my bed and slipped a piece of 18 gauge wire through the little part where th fabric is sewed folded over (at the top of the sheet) and i strung the wire through the eye hooks and tightened the wire. so now i have a curtain that i can push over and craft or read in my space. but anyways, then i took another piece of the wire and wrapped it around the board above and tightened it around the eyehook on the other side (so it is slightly diagonal) and i took baby clothes pins and attached pictures to them.
and here is what my room now looks like and i am very happy with it! YAY!

Did you wrap christmas tree lights around the tinsel?  I bet that would be pretty!

You might want to test that out under observation with some Chirstmas lights you have in the house before going out and buying some just for that.  You don't want to the lights to heat up the tinsel too much, could be a possible fire hazard.  It is a cool idea though, just saying you might want to test it first.  By the way, your room looks great!  Very bright and colorful!

I would think that the tinsel would be ok since it was made for Christmas trees...which have lights on them...I don't know though.

Awesome ideas! I want a bunkbed or loftbed SO badly, I need the space. Besides, it would be a nice place to store a comfy couch
