If you want to make a big décor change in your home you don't have to
purchase a lot of new items, many of the things in your house could be re purposed and used to spice up your décor scheme. Many interior decorators use old household
items to breathe new life into rooms, and there are bound to be things in your
home that could be re purposed into something beautiful and useful. Your old shaggy rugs could be
sown together and made into an interesting furniture slip, and your old
bed frame could be spruced up and made into a unique message board. Think twice before you throw away your old
dresser and ladder, they could help your home look more stylish.
When your kid is ready for their "big kid" furniture you may
feel tempted to run out and by some kid friendly furniture, but you could easily re-purpose one of your old dressers into something more eye-catching. Look for a bright shade of chalkboard paint
to use on your dresser, and slap on a few coats of your color of choice. The bright colors look great, and your child
will love having somewhere they can draw (it may even keep some of your walls
and doors safe from your well-meaning kid's art).
Make Your Left Over Cabinet Doors Into Mantel Décor
If you recently remodeled a room you may have some extra material left
over, and many people find themselves with an extra cabinet door or two. Instead of throwing away your extra planks of
wood and cabinet doors, turn them into an eye catching décor piece. Paint your left over material an eye catching
color, and prop up a decorative plate or candles next to it.
Do you have a few scraps of wallpaper sitting around from your last big
move? Instead of letting them take up
space in an old box, grab some decoupage glue and turn your end table or coffee
table into something new and exciting.
Wallpaper can easily be put on other surfaces, and this DIY craft is relatively
simple to do.
