Your teen’s bedroom is a place they can go to as their own sanctuary. Their bedroom is also a place for your teen to show their personality. Your teen will want to decorate their bedroom in a way that shows their budding personality. Your teen will be leaving for college in a few years so you may not want to spend a lot of money on big bedroom items that may not be used much. This can make decorating your teen’s bedroom harder. To help add your teen’s personality into their bedroom without spending a lot of money you can hand-paint bedroom crafts. Here are some hand-painted teen bedroom craft ideas to think of when doing a teen bedroom makeover.
If you have an older desk set either in your home or already in your teen’s bedroom you can strip off the old paint and hand-paint the desk set. This is a great way to add personality to your teen’s bedroom. You can paint in solid colors either one color or use multiple colors. You can add fun designs to the sides and tops of the desk or even the chair. You can use stencils to paint shapes or words onto the desk and chair. The paint can be matched to the other colors in your teen’s bedroom or as the beginning of the color palette for the bedroom. There are so many options for hand painting a desk set, you just need to use your imagination and paint.
Another hand-painted teen bedroom craft idea is to paint picture frames. You can buy unpainted picture frames at any craft store or you can use older picture frames that you already have.

You can then paint the frames to match the other colors in your teen’s bedroom. This is an easy hand-painted craft idea and will give your teen a place to display the events in their lives.
You can also make your own hand-painted artwork to hang on the walls. Your artwork does not need to be of museum quality just something that is simple and easy.

This is a great hand-painted teen bedroom craft idea to do together and you can include younger kids too.
