HOW TO HAVE A PRETTIER ROOM!

Page 2:

SO YOU WANT TO CHANGE YOUR ROOM!

Fixing a room a new way is one of the oldest feminine habits...one that probably began when a prehistoric female rearranged the animal skins in her cave for better effect.

If you yearn to do something to make your bedroom prettier, but just don't know where to begin, here's a bit of advice: Begin with a plan. First:

ARTISTIC TYPE

ROMANTIC TYPE

OUTDOOR TYPE

PROM PERSONALITY

A smart girl plans her room according to her personality, for she knows she'll be happiest in a room which best expresses herself. The little quizzes on pages 3, 6, 9 and 12 will help you determine your own type. Then look for the decorating tips that appeal to you.

PICK YOUR TYPE

BUT YOU HAVEN'T ANY MONEY?

Cheer up, chick. The ideas in this book were planned for young budgets. Besides, your biggest asset is one which has no price at all because it's priceless- your ingenuity.

Once you start using that, ideas for earning money will come to you. Like this: Suppose you need some cash to buy a quart of paint. Bargain with Mom- you wax the furniture; she buys the paint for your room.

Bargain with Dad, too. If you need his help in building bookshelves, do a job for him like waxing his car.

Are you clever at making something people will buy? Could you help a neighbor by doing the dishes after a party? Or perhaps clean her Venetian blinds? (There's a free booklet on a cleaning wax that makes this job a snap, too.)
Page 3:

Artistic Type?

you are, if...

your first love is music or writing or designing or such...and you're dreaming of a career in your field

you like full skirts and interesting thong sandals

you've a love of color and know it can work miracles

you can easily imagine yourself someday studying in Paris or Rome

you've lots of ideas but most of them aren't practical

Here are some practical ideas for a very individual room which has been planned around a talent. A budding young dress designer has used a dress form as the focal point in a studio-bedroom. Tools of her trade (scissors, pin cushion, sewing basket) are hung from molding with long ribbons. Fake flowers stick out of the neck of the dress form, and the body is used as a bulletin board. Decorate the fabric covering with textile paint or tint it a gay color.
Page 4:

IF YOU'RE A MUSICIAN

display your talent with a music stand, a straight chair and your instrument (if it's not a piano) out where everybody can see where your interests lie. Enamel stand and chair a pastel or bold color, and wax for extra beauty. This is what designers call "setting a mood"-you've seen it done in movies and window displays.

MAKE A SMART, MODERN STUDIO COUCH

by removing headboard and footboard from an old single bed. Cover with a bright felt bedspread. To make spread, measure length of bed plus height from floor at head and foot. Buy 72"-wide felt in the length you need. No hemming-just pink edges or trim straight. Make extra throw-pillows from old bath towels. Fold to size and thickness you want and cover with felt.

OLD-FASHIONED SEWING MACHINE AN EYE-SORE?

Put a gay, ruffled skirt on it. Or paint all wooden parts some striking color to contrast with the black metal legs and foot treadle. Or enamel the entire machine the same color as your walls.

WRITER'S ROOM?

Show off your skill. Cut giant-sized quill or pen and pencil from cardboard or heavy paper. Paint an exciting color and tack or glue to the most prominent wall. Keep your typewriter waxed and shining...and out where it can be seen.
Page 5:

MAKE A WONDERFUL WASTEBASKET

out of a popcorn or potato chip can. Paint or cover with fancy gift paper or wallpaper. Shellac paper to keep it clean; wax inside of can so dust and dirt won't stick. For an extra large wastebasket, use a semi-circular clothes hamper, shoved against the wall.

NEED A DESK?

One clever girl made hers this way. She found an old two-drawer wooden file cabinet in a second-hand shop. First she refinished the sides, then bought a board the width of the cabinet and 50" long. Then she persuaded her brother to attach two painted metal legs to one end of the board (have metal pipe threaded at one end and screw into matching threaded socket rings attached underneath board). The other end of the board was nailed in place over the file cabinet, then finished to match the sides. Result: a long, handsome desk with really deep drawers.

LEARN HOW TO REFINISH

old furniture and give unpainted pieces a professional look. Write us for a free copy of 3 Easy Recipes for Finishing Furniture. Tells you exactly how to do it, right down to the kind of brush to use.

MAKE END TABLES

or a night table from orange crates. Cover with the same paper you used on the wastebasket. Or paint a solid color and, when thoroughly dry, wax to keep it clean. If you use the giant quill design on your wall, you could repeat it on the side of the crate.
Page 6:

Romantic Type?

you are, if..............

- you love flowers and dreamy music and pretty, lacy handkerchiefs

- you weep over stories or movies with sad endings

- you've already planned your wedding down to the last detail

- you wear ribbons in your hair and love pinks and pale blues

- you keep a diary and save all kinds of mementos like valentines, menus and theater programs

If you decide you're the romantic type, you're in luck. You're the girl who'll find treasures in an attic-old Victorian pieces that look like horrors until you transform them with imagination and pastel paint. This room shows you one way to have the prettiest, most feminine boudoir imaginable.
Page 7:

START WITH A PAINT POT!

Paint your old worn floor in a dark color. Let dry. Then spatter-paint over this in two light colors. To spatter: Dip your brush in paint lightly. Knock handle sharply against a broomstick. This will spatter paint from the brush onto the floor in a nicely irregular way. Do all of one color first. Let dry. Then do second color. When floor is thoroughly dry, wax with paste wax to preserve paint from wear. Keep clean and shining with a liquid cleaning and polishing wax. No scrubbing ever necessary!

PRETTY IDEA FOR WINDOWS

Make tie-racks for full ruffled curtains with wide, wide ribbons and let the ends flutter to the floor. Tuck artificial flowers in the bow knot-be sure the color blends with the ribbons. Cut pictures of your favorite movie stars from magazines and paste them on the inside of your window shade. Then watch the stars come out when you pull down the shade at night!

HOW TO MAKE A DRESSING TABLE

Easiest way is still the favorite. Get two orange crates and smooth all rough edges with sandpaper. Stand on ends. Get a board or piece of plywood the same width as the ends of the crates. Saw it to the length you want and nail it across the crates. Paint inside and top a pretty pastel.
Page 8:

Make a ruffled skirt to match your curtains or bedspread. Thumb-tack in place. Easy way to shirr the skirt is with shirring tape you sew flat to the back of the material. It costs about 9$ a yard and has woven-in cords you pull to make ruffles. This tape is wonderful for dust ruffles on beds or chairs, too.

P.S. Be sure to give the top of your dressing table a coat of paste wax before you use it. This will protect the paint and make the surface easier to keep clean.

RARE FIND!

An old hat rack. Paint it white or a pastel color, wax it, and use as a wonderful display for your party favors, prettiest hats, an umbrella, a gay beach bag, scarves and ties.

GRAND WAY TO DISPLAY A COLLECTION

of miniature animals or dishes, dollhouse furniture or other small objects is in a shadow box. Wax to cut down dusting; then hang over your desk or bed.

BETTER THAN A BULLETIN BOARD!

Cut two big hearts, same size, out of bright red cloth (felt, flannel, satin, etc.). Put a layer of cotton between and sew together like a big flat pin cushion. Quilting a satin heart will make it even more luscious.
Page 9:

Outdoor Type?

you are, if............

you spend every spare moment riding or playing tennis or sailing or hiking

you'd rather have a date with Rock Hudson than Cary Grant you prefer a co-ed weenie roast to an all-girl tea you like to feel the wind ruffling your hair you love the autumny smell of wood smoke and burning leaves

Bring the outdoors inside and use it as a background for your favorite sport or hobby. Have lots of plants, and prints of birds or animals. Use colors you'll find outdoors like greens and yellows and earthy tones-skip the pastels and ruffles.
Page 10:

HIDE A STEAM PIPE UNDER FAKE IVY

"Plant" ivy in a couple of painted flower pots on the floor and twine up pipe to ceiling. Buy ivy at the dime store or make your own with untwisted wire coat hangers wrapped in green crepe paper. Use green construction paper for leaves; shellac if you want a shiny look. Make stems out of pipe cleaners dipped in green ink or a fabric tint. Glue leaves to one end, twist the other end to the wire.

NAME YOUR GAME!

Is tennis your sport? Make the most of it by painting crossed racquets on the wall. Trace your own-strings and all. Hang a mesh bag filled with balls underneath. And be sure your real racquet is stored in a press where it won't warp, and waxed for extra protection.

MODERN BULLETIN BOARD

can be made out of a square of pegboard. Use colorful waxed golf tees to hold your memos in place. Decorate with school initials formed with pipe cleaners and thumb-tacked down. Tint them with fabric dye.

IS FISHING YOUR DISH?

Fill a wicker creel with little potted plants. Or paint it a gay color and hang on the wall. Use it to hold Christmas or birthday cards.

MAKE A BOOKCASE

or record holder out of bricks and boards. Paint bricks white to bring out their texture, and wax to keep clean. Have shelves as high and long as you want- paint and wax boards. Use matching bricks for book-ends. For a colorful touch in your bookcase, use road maps or pages from an old atlas to make covers for some of your books.
Page 11:

SUPER STORAGE SPACE

is yours with an old camp chest or an Army locker from a surplus store. Cover with denim, burlap or felt. Burlap gives a tweedy effect that is sensational. You can glue either fabric on with ordinary household cement. Before covering top, pad with foam rubber or an old chenille bedspread folded to a nice thickness. Put the chest at the foot of your bed and use for everything from skates and tennis shoes to out-ofseason clothes. For fun, make a monogram of felt in a contrasting color and glue to the front of the chest. Or cut narrow strips of felt and glue them in tic-tac-toe designs around the sides.

SMALL SPACE FILLER

Fill in narrow wall space between windows or doors with a vertical row of your favorite pictures in identical frames, waxed for a smooth, expensive look. Or mount prints of enlarged outdoor snapshots on matching mats.

DECORATE YOUR STUDY AREA

with an old bread box, enameled white and trimmed with stencils or decals. Use to hold paper, pencils and other supplies for homework. Keep some signs handy and put them around when you study: QUIET... WOMAN AT WORK...SILENCE...DO NOT DISTURB... KEEP OUT...STUDY ZONE.

NEED A NEW WASTEBASKET?

Cover your old one with denim or some other fabric used in your room-zipped on so you can remove easily for washing. Or paint an ordinary pail white, trim with gay decals or sketches, monogram, and wind handle with crepe paper or ribbon. Add perky bows on each side where handle joins pail.
Page 12:

PROM PERSONALITY?

you are, if......

you like high heels better than flats laughter comes easily you're popular with both sexes you study with your radio on you'd rather dance than do anything else, almost

If you're a prom personality, you'll want your room to be one with lots of comfortable seating space for your girl friends. That means sit-on-the-floor pillows, bowls for popcorn and peanuts, storage space for record albums, a dressing table, and a place to keep all your party souvenirs. Here's how to do a lot with a little.
Page 13:

MAKE A DRESSING TABLE

out of any old table, preferably one with a shallow drawer or two. If the top is scratched and worn, refinish it. Write for free folder, 3 Easy Recipes for Finishing furniture. The cute stool shown here is an old piano stool, with a fancy pillow top held on with elastic.

DRESS YOUR DRESSING TABLE

in a skirt made out of an old sheet tinted your favorite color. Trim edges with three bands of ric-rac or eyelet embroidery. Put matching ruffles around the edge of the mirror you'll hang over your dressing table-you can attach them with adhesive or cellophane tape.

A GLITTERING JEWEL CASE

is easy to make. Buy a plastic tackle box at the dime store or hardware store. Put household cement on the lid and cover with sequins or pearls tinted with regular textile dye. Or use colored beads or flat rhinestone buttons...or old coins which you've shined up with copper polish.

A DISCARDED BIRD CAGE

becomes a highly decorative accessory when you paint it, wax it, hang it from a velvet ribbon and fill it with fake flowers and trailing ivy. You could even put a lovely doll in the cage-one that is dressed in an especially pretty formal.

FOR A MODERN BOOKCASE

and magazine stand, scrounge about for a grocery store display rack made of wire. Very smart when enameled black for that wrought-iron look!
Page 14:

STORAGE SPACE FOR RECORD ALBUMS

An orange crate, again. This time, cover with sophisticated gift-wrap paper. Or, if you're papering your room, use the same kind of wallpaper on the crate to make matchmates.

PLAN TO TRAVEL SOME DAY?

Frame a big map of the world and hang over your desk. Stick jeweled hat pins (dime store variety) in the spots you want to visit. Or clip pictures of faraway places and frame-hang over your bed. Paste each picture to a sheet of painted cardboard-shellac pictures and frames to keep clean. Mount between narrow strips of wood. Leave the wood its natural light color and wax for beauty and protection.

FOR SIT-ON-THE-FLOOR PILLOWS

look in your attic or second-hand stores for old sofa or couch cushions. Slip-cover with felt, denim or burlap...an easy-to-make project you can work out in a sewing group.

BOWLS FOR NIBBLES

are both modern and practical when they're made of wood. Dime stores have small individual salad bowls. Use nail polish to paint ALL GONE.. .THAT'S ALL ...YOU'VE HAD IT...on the inside bottoms of the bowls. Wax 'til they shine and display on a shelf.

NEED LITTLE WALL SHELVES?

Take a pretty wood tray and saw it in half, lengthwise. Sandpaper rough edges and attach angle braces with iron cement. Be sure braces are long enough to' extend under half the width of the shelf. Show off your favorite character dolls or some souvenirs from trips. Wax shelves for less dusting.
Page 15:

HOW TO GROOM YOUR ROOM!

EVERYONE KNOWS ABOUT DAILY CHORES

that should be done-airing your bed, dusting the dresser top, hanging up your clothes, and all that. But perhaps you haven't heard about these quick tricks that help you keep everything in order... and are fun to do at the same time.

LITTLE TRICKS TO MAKE HOUSEKEEPING QUICK

Screw small metal cup hooks to the underside of a waxed wooden hanger. Neat way to keep belts in an easy-to-find row.

Hang scarves over wire hangers-use clamp clothes pins to keep them from sliding off. Or cover a cardboard toilet tissue roll with fancy paper and string ribbon through it. Use to hold small neck scarves.

If you have Venetian blinds, paint a ring of nail polish around the pull that tips shutters down. No more guesswork.

A coat of paste wax on a curtain rod means smooth traveling for curtains or drapes-and for clothes hangers if you wax the rod in the closet.
