How to Apply Decorative Ideas to your Room

I think that there is an easy way to give a room a facelift which is to modernize hardware such as doorknobs) drawer pulls) and curtain rods.


You can put shells in baskets on a low table or show them off in glass canisters.

Store your needlework or mending in a pretty basket under a side table or in the foyer to keep it tidy and looks decorative) too.

A basketful of pinecones in front of the fireplace gives a room a feeling of friendliness.

In the fall, buy gourds at the supermarket. Use them for a month or so in an arrangement, then put them somewhere warm and dry for a while. The gourds become very light as they dry) and the colors mute beautifully with age.

Add a miniature hammock to a corner in a child's room to make a place for all his or her stuffed animals.

Keep your decorative baskets looking healthy by placing them away from dry heat.

A nonworking fireplace, primed and freshened with paint, makes a comfortable niche for a sewing machine table or an aquarium.

A stairway landing is the perfect place for an armoire. Line it with attractive fabric and fill it with linens, coats, or out-of-season clothes.

Display flowers in unusual vases-a crystal ice bucket, a fluted champagne glass, a bright coffee mug or jug. Flowers, in fact, look good in almost any container.

Turn your bathroom into a miniature gallery with pictures you don't have space for elsewhere-so long as they aren't works that can be damaged by the humidity that collects in a bathroom.

If you don't want to buy furniture, you can rent it at surprisingly reasonable rates. Furniture for rent includes everything from sofas and carpets to lamps and works of art.

A silver goblet is perfect for holding candies or cigarettes on a coffee table.

To keep drying flowers dust-free, cover them with plastic bags punched with air holes. When the flowers have dried, spray them with hair spray.


This will serve several purposes: The hair spray will give the flowers a clear matte finish, keep them from shedding, keep insects away, and protect them from moisture.

Some flowers and foliage can be placed in a vase without water and dried upright. Among them are pussy willows, wild grasses, and grains and flowers with large composite heads and sturdy stalks-for example, Queen Anne's lace and cockscomb.

Layer seeds and nuts in attractive apothecary bottles.
A branch cut from any blossoming tree or bush makes an unusual centerpiece on a dining or coffee table.

Glue corn pads or pieces of felt to the rough bottoms of vases and art objects to keep them from scratching tables.

Replace a drab string cord or light-bulb chain with a piece of satin piping or silver cord.

Thread a bright ceramic bead at the end of the cord for a finishing touch.

Use leftover dining room wallpaper to make matching place mats. Paste the paper onto sturdy cardboard, trim the edges neatly, and coat each mat with a plastic spray.

A handy deodorizer for waste baskets: Place a sheet of fabric softener in the bottom of each.

You can make unusual centerpieces in no time by floating flowers in clear glass dessert dishes.

Fill the dishes half-way with water, cut the stems from the flowers, and place them in the dishes.
Dime store bandannas make pretty, inexpensive pillow covers. Buy assorted colors for a striking effect. These bandannas also make wonderful table napkins-especially for a picnic or a barbecue.

Hot peppers threaded on long string make a beautiful kitchen decoration while drying. Garlic and onions also look attractive braided and hung on display.

Old, carved doorknobs, attached to each end of a dowel, make an attractive curtain rod.
Paint or stain the knobs to match your furniture.

A basket of Italian onions makes a striking centerpiece when serving an Italian dinner. Pomegranates are also beautiful in bowls.

A ceramic tile or tiles make a decorative hot pad for the table or kitchen counter.
Use old pantyhose to stuff pillows and toys.

There's no need to invest in wallpaper to give your walls new life. A super graphic on the wall can make a room exciting. Or, if you have artistic ability (or just ambition) design and paint your own mural.

An old kimono can be draped on a wall for an elegant splash of texture and color.

Any combination of fruits in a bowl can double as both centerpiece and dessert.
Solve a bicycle storage problem: A bicycle hanging on a wall becomes a piece of art as well as a means of transportation. A high-tech look for a teenager s room, perhaps?

An old dining table found at a flea market can make a great sofa-height coffee table. Just cut the legs to the height you need.

Change the look of an old Formica table by laminating the surface with colorful fabric.

If you're serving messy finger food-fried chicken or ribs, for instance- provide finger bowls: float lemon slices in small glass dishes so that guests can rinse their fingers. Since finger bowls are an old-fashioned elegance and seldom seen these days, be ready to enlighten anyone who assumes that you're serving a rather odd sort of cold lemon soup.

You can make cheap floor rugs by stenciling canvas with nontoxic acrylic paints.

Make an extra closet into a book nook for quiet reading. Remove the door, and install a wall lamp, shelves, and a comfortable chair.

Put an unwrapped bar of soap in a drawer or linen closet to give lingerie and linens a pleasant scent.

Also, you may create low-cost bookcases out of flue tiles or conduit pipes. The cubbyholes are perfect for storing wine.
