Do you have a teen or tween daughter who is looking for some ideas to tweak her bedroom? I think you’ll really enjoy this book review today of Redo Your Room- 50 Bedroom DIYS You Can Do in a Weekend. It’s published by FaithGirlsz by Zonderkidz. The book is a handy small size, paperback, 127 pages, and in full color!
My daughters and I definitely had fun looking through the different ideas and thinking through which ones they would like to do.
One favorite was called “Pretty Drawer Pulls” and demonstrates how to decoupage with fabric to recreate the look of drawer pulls on a nightstand or dresser.
Another favorite was “Decorated Desk Lamp.” It shows how to apply some paint and lace to make a simple desk lamp really beautiful.
And we also loved the “Twinkling Teacup Candles” where you use vintage teacups and add soy candle wax and wick adhesive to create a candle. They put gold glitter on the top, and the teacup candles are just gorgeous!

The layout of the book is very modern; teens will really relate to it. I’m pretty sure every girl ages 11-20 will find at least a few ideas in this book that they’d love to do in their room. Most will only a quick trip to the hardware or craft store and won’t cost too much. Another plus is that the teen girls should be able to most (if not all) of the work themselves; tweens might need a little help from Mom or Dad. So, in conclusion, I am very happy with this book and know my 4 girls will bring it out again and again to get some more fun ideas. I might even do some myself!
