Decorating? Ha, you think. Everybody is busy. We all have a long list of things to do. How do I know this? Because I, too, have a long list of things to do.
Let’s look at some easy fun ways that you could tackle a weekend home decorating project to make your house feel like a home.
While a fresh coat of colorful paint can revive a piece of furniture, you can take it a step further by adding pattern, too. Use paint pens to draw designs on drawer fronts, tabletops, and more. Here is a quick video on how to paint furniture the right way.
Create an Entryway Table
Craft a simple entryway table from logs. Simply prop table-height sections of logs against a wall. Apply a clear coat to the logs to seal the wood.
Put It On Display
Secondhand stores and flea markets are often chock-full of artwork. While the art may not be up your style alley, if the frames catch your eye, you have the makings of an art display you’ll love. Simply discard the art and paint the frames fun colors that match your decor. Arrange the ensemble on a blank wall.
Embellish with Watercolor
Give a plain lampshade a watercolor makeover. Moisten a large paintbrush with water, and sweep a wavelike pattern around the bottom of the shade. Tap wet paint into the pattern with a soft, round watercolor brush. (Use watercolor paint for paper lampshades and fabric paint for fabric shades.) The paint will bleed to the edges of the moistened area. After the paint dries, dot the wave with more paint in alternating colors. For dots that blend, paint them with edges touching.
No matter how you make your house a home, it is important to make it place you love to be with the people you love most.
