Inspiration for Lisa

My sister Lisa is moving into a new place. She asked me for some decorating inspiration, and I've decided to share! Lisa wont have an actual closet in the space she is moving in to, so we have brainstormed some ideas to solve that. Along with that, we wanted to create a cohesive scheme for a young, vibrant 22 year old. Here, is my inspiration board....

Damask, chandeliers and bird cages are immensely popular. I am in love with them. Since we are working with a recently graduated from college budget, we need to incorporate a lot of her existing decor and DIY techniques.
Some of our brainstorming ideas include:
1. Homemade, hand painted privacy "dressing" screen
2. Garage sale steals of chandeliers and vintage bird cages spray painted to match.
3. Vintage birdcages converted into jewelry storage.
4. Vinyl decals...the condo is a rental, so minimal paint allowed.
5. Hand painted canvases to match privacy screen
6. Framed fabric in similar print (cheap and easy art!)

All we need are a few coupons from Michaels, Joann Fabric and a trip to Menards and Lisa will have a new and very chic room! I cant wait to get started!
