Turn the fireplace mantel into a focal point using color. You can hang different-colored stocking or you can display an array of floral ornaments, also featuring a rainbow of colors. You can even borrow a few ornaments from your Christmas tree and display them on the mantel in a creative way. You can use candles to decorate the mantel and make it glow. Use candles of different shapes and sizes and votives and arrange them as you find it fit. You can also use a few other things in between, like pine cones, Christmas tree branches, tree ornaments, etc.
Another thing you can make using driftwood is a cloth hanger. It’s a practical item and it will also have a unique look. For this project you’ll need some dry tree branches or pieces of driftwood, wire cutters, pliers, a saw, a drill and glue. Start by peeling off the bark from the branches so that your cloths won’t get dirty. Then drill a hole in the middle of the branch and attach the hook using strong glue. Let it dry and your hanger is ready.
Good, well thought out interior decorating can add balance to a room and bring out its best features. Interior decorating should form the background for the way you choose to live in your home. If you have got a lot of books then it stands to reason that you will want plenty of good shelving. Plain wood shelves look best for this but if you already have some and they are beginning to look past their prime then play safe and paint them white. Think about the lighting in a room because this can enhance or detract from its overall design.
It is time to get serious about your decorating. I want you to go around your home and take a good look at your wall shelving. Is it beautiful? Well the fact is that most wall shelving is merely functional and most people give more thought about what they are going to put on the shelves than they way the shelves look. When you shop for decorative wall shelves, be creative. Look for designs that are going to blend well and enhance your home decor. You may be surprised what a difference it makes.
Ceiling light fixtures are great for starters, but when it comes to setting a specific ambiance, they do not quite do the trick. They leave unwanted dark corners and unflattering shades on decorations. Table fixtures with shades are still popular, but overall, they are quite impractical. A floor lamp is easier to clean, has a better throw of light, and casts the most flattering shadows for the room.
If you look for pre-packaged shelves and just cant seem to find any that go well in your home, you may need to take another route. This would involve doing a bit more shopping on your part but what woman does not love shopping anyway, especially when you are doing it to beautify your home. You might find that you will have to buy the shelves separately from the brackets. You may decide that you would rather go this way even if you do find that the other ones are nice.
When designing shelves of this nature, the manufacturers understand that these shelves are hanging with no external support. Therefore, they are specifically designed to be reinforced. This is done by adding attaching screws into the wall and the internal brackets are made from durable materials. They are also extended enough to give excellent support. With this type of design, you are able to put heavy items on these shelves without worry.
Have you ever tried to install a set of shelves only to find that the brackets get in the way? No matter how you change it around, you just cant seem to get it right. There is a type of shelving that can help you avoid this problem altogether, they are called floating shelves.
