Upgrade a teen's furnishings, walls and accent pieces with a fresh coat of paint, Girls' Life advises. Design a custom pattern or purchase low cost stencils, such as polka dots, stars, flowers or paw prints, and use painter's tape where necessary to cover the areas that are not being painted. Update the color scheme of the room by painting a stripe of trim or changing the ceiling to a contrasting color.

Bring a personal touch to lampshades by handpainting them or using basic craft supplies, such as tissue paper, to glue on colorful designs, suggests Better Homes and Gardens. Brush decoupage over the paper to permanently adhere it to the lampshade and create a lasting design.

For a unique bulletin board, attach multiple cork coasters to the wall with mounting stickers. Teens may paint the coasters in their favorite color schemes and arrange them to form fun shapes. Better Homes and Gardens suggests gluing an unpainted coaster to the back for extra stability. When the cork shapes dry, use tacks to display notes and photos.
