How come you dont want to paint yet?  30-50 bucks and 5 hours of time per room to paint could be an easy fix to love your rooms.

@BluePeaches:  So get a part-time job and then spend a bit of time painting.  If you hate it so much, you’re not going to like it by adding something to it.  And adding something to the wall would cost money as well.  

 

What’s wrong with blue, anyway, though?

you hate blue

you hate 95% of the pics on Houzz

it would cost way more to redecorate than to repaint

Some states have paint recycling programs where you can get free paint, but you don’t get to pick the color. It’s usually a neutral because they mix them all together. http://earth911.com/recycling/paint/

@BluePeaches:  So your solution is…nothing.  You can’t find the time to paint a few walls…you can’t figure out how to spend a little money…you can’t find a single picture you like. 

There has to be a different solution.  Perhaps you could buy…oh nevermind you can’t afford anything.  So maybe you could go to the free section on Craigslist and see if anyone is offering posters or something.  That would cover up the blue.

 

Or, seriously, put aside a few dollars here and there, buy some paint, and paint the wall.  You’ll also need that blue tape, and a drop cloth (an old sheet would suffice).  If you choose a color that’s pale, you’ll likely need two coats.  You could paint some, then go work on your thesis, then paint some more, then work some more on the old thesis.  Graduate school is a big deal, but it’s not like you’re literally studying from sun up to sun down.  You can take a break from that for a few minutes, right?  

 

Also, do you live alone?

If you hate blue so much, I’d suggest not wasting any money for decor and accessories to go with a color you hate.  Chances are if they are spare rooms, you won’t even go into them much so just worry about it when you need to use the rooms.  We have 4 bedrooms and NEVER go into the other 3 except to get suitcases or coats that are in one one of them.  If the master is blue though, just suck it up and paint it cause seems like you hate it too much. Painting one room is cheap.  Sometimes Homedepot or lowes have a oops paint that is actually a decent color that sells for $7 for a gallon, which should be enough to paint a standard size (less than 20×20) room.

What shade of blue, navy blue, baby blue, teal blue, aqua blue? Light? Dark?

What is your style? Modern? Traditional? Eclectic? Country? Minamalist? Mid Century?

Forget the blue for a moment, post a pic of a bedroom you love, then simply duplicate it with coordinating colors to blue. Just because the wall is blue, doesnt mean anything else has to be blue.

@peachacid:  +1. It took me 3 hours to paint my nursery today.

I spend way more time on WB than that a week, and I’m busy. There’s time.

 

OP, the PP are just throwing out ideas and help that you asked for! No reason to be snarky.

I do agree with PP that it might be cheaper to paint (just a change of bedding and curtains is expensive), but I actually prefer google image searches to Houzz or Pinterest. Try googling images for ‘navy bedroom’ (or whatever shade you’ve got).
