Glue beveled mirrors to flat bifold closet doors to not only add a sense of space to a smaller room, but also add some functionality! These doors were done by Modern Craft Construction, LLC, who also added crystal knobs to include an extra touch of flair.

Contact Paper Everything

Use a marble or granite patterned contact paper to achieve this look!

Contact paper is a super cheap and chic way to spruce up your home. Use it for wallpaper, a backsplash, on a countertop, or to add some serious pizzazz to a thrifted piece of furniture. With so many different designs to choose from, the possibilities here are endless!

Get Creative with Wooden Crates

There are so many great ways to get some use out of old wooden crates you might have kicking around. With a fresh coat of paint and the help of some sandpaper, you can easily recreate these shabby-chic flower or herb planters. If plants aren’t really your style, experiment with other uses of wooden crates, like cubbies, a coffee table, or some nifty porch furniture.

Switch Up Your Curtains

Hang curtains close to the ceiling to create the effect of having taller ceilings and opening up the room more. Adjust the color and texture of your curtains to achieve a different mood. Sheer curtains brighten up a small dark room while heavy curtains have more of a luxury feel. The best part about this project is that you don’t have to buy anything you don’t already have!

Outdoor spaces are excellent spots to relax and entertain friends and family. Make your backyard the perfect spot to hang out with a stylish and functional fire pit. First, dig a shallow hole in the grass roughly the desired size of the fire pit. Next, lay down your bricks in a circle, making sure they are level. Once this is complete, add gravel or small stones in and around the walls of the pit. Now you can invite friends over to enjoy your new space! They will be dying to know how you made this stylish fire pit all by yourself!
