1-TRANSFORM A WALL WITH WOOD

Think beyond just texture and paint, and pick a wall or two in your home that you can showcase with wood or other timeless materials. If you are resourceful enough to use recycled wood, you can do this for less than $50! A spot light to show off the wall doesn’t hurt, either. Check out this project using pine wood planks here, or if you have access to a few pallets check out this tutorial.

2-Turn Old Mini Blinds Into Roman Shades

Break out your scissors! You can easily turn your old mini-blinds into roman shades with a few snips (oh, and a bit of sewing for the actual shade), but you can easily use the hardware from mini blinds to customize your own shades! Apparently, you can also buy blinds at Walmart for less than $5, so even if you don’t have blinds to spare, you can pick them up new for little cost. Go check out the step-by-step instructions for this project over at Sawdust & Embryos. Your windows will thank you!

3-Hang Curtains High and Wide

Just because you have small windows doesn’t mean you have to frame them small! Give the illusion of larger windows by hanging your drapes high and wide. This creates more drama to the room, making the walls look taller, and room airier. And, the more panels, the better. You want your curtains to look full luxurious! Read more about this here.

4- SAY GOODBYE TO BRASS

Use Rust-Oleum to change faucets, lamps, door knobs, fixtures, and ceiling fans…… You can buy this stuff in oil rubbed bronze, nickel, iron, rust, or steel!

5- Add Glass Shelfs

This has never really occurred to me, but glass shelves add extra storage space while still keeping a space feeling open and airy. I love this idea for the kitchen so that your herbs can grow big and healthy. This tutorial shows you how to easily do this with quarter round! The hardest part is all of the measuring, but a glass manufacturer can do all of the cutting for you.
