I like to keep a few mirrors around the house. One by the front door, so in a pinch I can fix any stray hairs or unblended make-up on the way out the door. A spare in the bathroom that I can use to see the back of my head for particularly complicated hair-dos. Mirrors are also great as mere decorating accents to your home. They are pretty, clean, and serve more than one purpose! Here are seven mirror DIYs that will transform your space.
Now that everyone has cell phones, everyone can be a photographer with a swipe of a screen. Instead of just sharing all your photos on social media, why not create hard copies and display them in your house? And I’m not talking just your standard picture frames. There are tons of ways to get creative with displaying photos; here are seven of them.
Wallpaper doesn’t have to be drab or shabby. Now you can find a variety of prints on the internet that can be shipped to you quickly as can be! And with innovations like removable wallpaper, or peel-and-stick, decorating your house has never been easier. Make a statement and tell a story using these amazing prints!
Flowers are a classic accent to any room. They add a breath of fresh air, are a simple way to connect with nature, and have even been proven to reduce stress. These vase DIYs offer creative alternatives to your typical floral arrangement. Added bonus? Many of them keep Mother Earth healthy by employing recycled items.
Can’t afford a Van Gogh or a Monet? You can still enjoy the beauty of these artists, and others, while paying budget-friendly prices. Posters are a great alternative if you can’t afford to buy original pieces. Just tack them to your wall, or buy special adhesive, and add an economical statement piece to add flavor to your room. Conversely, getting them framed can add a more professional edge to your decor.
Let’s face it: affordable furniture is often dowdy and plain. But, if you have an eye for art, or an instinct for the creative, there’s an easy fix: paint! Painting that old white Ikea coffee table can add a striking statement piece to your living room. Go easy with chevron stripes. Or add more detailed flourishes and designs. Kids love and are stimulated by exciting shapes and colors. Create one-of-a-kind pieces in your own backyard.
