Remember the show Design on a Dime? Well, I loved the concept but the buck stopped there. I always felt the update needed an automatic facelift. Too harsh? Here's the thing about DIYs if looks like its a DIY it might not be should be displayed.
My latest segment on Great Day brings some fresh ideas and as always a good laugh. I mean whats a little DIY without some kicks and giggles.
A few things you can do to give attention and TLC to your place.
1. Find interesting talking pieces under $25. Make sure that they are large enough to see and have the "it" factor. You want your guest to walk away going I want one of those or use words like "Rad" "Genius" and "Kewl . I like statement pieces that reflect you, your life, adventures, heritage, ect.
Also, if you find things that are not large in size group them in threes, fives, ect. Odd number grouping draws the eye and makes a statement.
2. Rearrange book by color. ROYGBV is your friend.
3. Gold leaf something. I found these amazing book ends that I loved on pinterest but to find Agate rocks that don't cost an arm and a leg made got me thinking outside the box. LIGHTBULB! Pavers, I headed to Home Depot and grabbed a couple garden pavers to replace the rock. They're heavy enough to hold up books and have the rough edges to make the gilded gold look on point. For first time "gold leafers" I'd buy a kit that has the base coat, leafing and top coat. You can purchase it HERE.
Lastly, if you're feeling the need for an update email me I'd love to share or give advice to help out.
Be Grateful. Be Inspired. Be You.
