A pop of neon does wonders to perk up a room—and when mixed with neutrals and more subdued shades, Dayglo brights look more sophisticated than festival-inspired. Make just one or two of these projects to inject your bedroom, dorm room, or living room with a fun hit of fluorescent color. It doesn't matter which you choose, because every one of these radiant DIYs is sure to receive compliments.
