We have so many different aspects to consider when decorating, we tend to get preoccupied with filling up the lovely space we have created with sofas and dining furniture, that we often forget about the brick and mortar foundations once the paint has dried. Make the most of your wall space to establish a personalised atmosphere in your home. If you’re on a budget but still need a re-vamp then why not try your hand at a little DIY, after all, there’s nothing like that feeling of accomplishment when you feast your eyes on the final result.
We’ve got just the hack for all you hoarders out there. If you hate throwing out personal favourites like a beautifully patterned duvet but time has taken it’s toll on it, don’t throw it out just yet. Why not upcycle your old linen into decorative wall hangings for a boho look to spruce up a vacant magnolia bedroom wall. Measure the free space on your wall and cut the section out of your fabric that you wish to use as your wall hanging, or you can even use the entire material. Tidy it up by trimming the edges and simply holding it in place in the top corners using heavy duty self-adhesive Velcro strips. You could also give it a more habitual feel by looping the top through a bamboo shoot or tree branch as a natural alternative to a curtain rail in order to keep it in place in a sturdy yet stylish fashion.
Give an old white sheet a makeover by stamping a painted triangular shape into gold paint (or any shape and colour of your choice!) and printing it continuously along the sheet. Be careful not to crease the fabric and ensure to lay the sheet flat across a large enough floor space. This creative option will instantly add character to a cold room such as a study or dorm room.
Make it work with almost any fabric item, even vintage white lace placemats or table runners that don’t quite match your contemporary decor anymore. Give them a new lease of life by stapling or glueing one inside a rustic wooden frame, making sure to pull it quite taught for a lacy spiderweb effect. The neutral tones work perfectly in smaller rooms by adding a decorative feature to your walls without making it look cluttered.
