Your Home Look More Expensive

0:19
Here’s you’ll learn how
0:21
to camouflage your TV like a living harry
0:23
potter paintings
0:24
and how to place your rug properly and professionally.
0:27
You are probably doing it wrong.
0:29
And no one tell you that.
0:32
1. Paint your vinyl or linoleum flooring.
0:34
With a single DIY link,
0:37
you can turn a common vinyl floor
0:39
like this
0:40
to this one.
0:42
2. Add cheap framed mirrors to closet doors,
0:44
painted to match.
0:46
The mirrors now suddenly look like
0:48
they are built in!
0:50
3. Use tab curtains
0:51
to cover up unsightly wire shelving.
0:54
Seriously.
0:55
I can’t be only person on earth
0:57
who think a garage
0:58
is a magnet for junk .
0:59
The garage is an enigma to me.
1:01
We clean it and
1:03
then suddenly it is a disaster again.
1:06
Well, we are finally able to upper hand it..
1:09
4. Basket-weave your drapes.
1:12
5. Add a simple hardware
1:14
to your curtain tie-backs.
1:16
You can get brass snap hooks
1:18
for around $2 at any hardware store.
1:20
6. Hide your television wires
1:22
in a shower curtain rod.

7. Use brackets to decorate a window
1:28
that doesn’t need to be covered up with curtains.
1:30
8. Use napkin rings and ribbons
1:33
to pretty up your shower curtain.
1:34
Or just tie them right onto the shower curtain
1:36
rod.
1:37
Anyway…
1:38
A perfect solution if the rings
1:39
were getting kinda rusty.
1:41
9. Mix and match your sheer curtains.
1:43
It will look especially dreamy
1:46
in a teenage girl’s bedroom.
1:48
10. Know where to place your rug.
1:51
For example, I’ve found that most people
1:53
that use an area rug in their bedroom are
1:55
either using the wrong size, or are
1:57
placing in incorrectly under the bed.
1:59
Here’s a diagram to scale
2:01
using a queen sized bed and an 8 X 10 rug:
2:04
Do this….
2:06
Instead of this
2:08
Let’s take a look at the diagram for dining
2:10
room rugs.
2:11
Push those chairs out like you were going
2:13
to sit down,
2:14
and buy a rug larger than that space.
2:16
Trust me, you and your guests
2:18
will be much happier! 🙂
2:21
NEXT
2:22
As far as living rooms go, this is a diagram
2:24
that shows a pretty common type of layout,
2:27
furniture-wise:
2:28
the rule of thumb is to put the front legs
2:29
of the couch
2:30
or chairs on the rug, and it still creates
2:32
a separate
2:33
and more intimate space that way
2:36
11. Decorate your fridge
2:38
with washi tape or spray paint.
2:39
from the every girl.com.
2:42
12. Paint faux windows on your garage door.
2:44
from conventional
2:45
white garage door,
2:46
to this look,
2:49
and finally this one.
2:50
from two peas in a bucket.
2:52
13. Frame your TV.
2:55
Disguise that Flat Screen!
2:57
Most of us have faced a dilemma of what to
2:59
do
2:59
about the all important TV
3:01
when we are decorating our home.
3:03
It’s not an easy thing to get past as a designer…
3:05
some designers won’t even allow them
3:07
in their design unless they are fully enclosed
3:09
and hidden!
3:10
However…
3:11
We know you and your family live in the real
3:14
world,
3:15
and if you are like me, you want to have
3:16
easy access to your TV,
3:18
or have it available for the kids
3:20
without some big production.
3:22
Remodelaholic have a great tutorial for you.
3:25
This takes just simple power tools
3:27
and basic carpentry skills….
3:29
They chose re-purposed wood for theirs,
3:32
and we love this!
3:34
The idea would look great in almost
3:35
any style home,
3:36
from industrial chic to Pottery Barn traditional.
3:39
Feel free to choose
3:40
whatever framing material fits your style
3:42
and budget.
3:43
Check out the do it yourself
3:45
Tutorial inside info
3:46
And another great tutorial from tommy & ellie
3:49
on how to build this custom TV frame.
3:52
Here are more ideas.
3:57
And if building a frame isn’t in your skill
3:59
set,
4:00
we have some more great ideas for disguising
4:02
the TV!
4:03
This is a great example of turning the TV
4:06
into art!
4:06
Notice how the color of the frame
4:08
around the TV ties in
4:09
with the other artwork ?

14. Attach some simple yarn tassels
4:21
to your bedskirt.
4:23
Fancy bedding can be so expensive.
4:25
Get this straight-out-of-Anthropologie look
4:28
by buying or making tassels and attaching
4:30
them to your bedskirt.
4:31
to make the tassels, you’ll only need:
4:32
Yarn
4:33
(Lion Brand – 81 yard skein made 6 tassels).
4:37
Something to wrap your yarn around that
4:39
is the desired length of your tassel
4:42
(a clipboard worked perfect for these 8 inches tassels).
4:44
and,
4:45
3.Scissors.
4:46
Follow DIY link we pasted under this video
4:48
and you’ll get 7 easy to follow steps
4:50
that won’t break your sweat.
4:52
Thanks to holly from sister suit case and
4:55
tatertotsandjello for this idea
4:57
15. Use a cake stand for your kitchen sink
5:00
needs.
5:01
16. Cover up an unsightly air vent with a
5:04
rubber doormat.
5:05
Give your decorative outdoor rubber mat a
5:07
new life.
5:08
When searching for a rubber door mat,
5:10
try to find one that allows plenty of airflow,
5:12
meaning that the door mat has a large amount
5:13
of
5:14
space in between the rubber sections.
5:16
17. Just a coat of spray paint will make old
5:19
air vents look new again.
5:20
A can of primer and a can of metallic spray
5:22
paint
5:23
will cover at least 10 of your vents.
5:26
18. Hang curtain rods to create a makeshift
5:29
canopy bed.
5:30
A super simple DIY by Michelle Adams,
5:33
Editor in Chief of Lonny Magazine,
5:35
it’s feeling almost within reach!
5:38
She simply drilled West Elm Industrial
5:40
Pipe Curtain Rods into her ceiling
5:42
with 6 panels of her favorite fabric
5:44
hanging from them.
5:46
Of course she chose very fine fabric
5:48
and a soft velvet as a lining,
5:51
but I’d be glad with IKEA curtains!
5:53
19. Accent ceilings are the new accent walls.
5:56
One of the most under decorated spaces
5:59
in houses tends to be the ceiling.
6:01
Unless you live in an older home blessed with
6:03
beams,
6:03
tin and/or ornate moldings,
6:05
it is rare to see anything today
6:07
beyond white paint and crown molding.
6:10
An inexpensive ways to add character to your
6:12
house.
6:13
Instead of adding the color to the walls,
6:16
painted the ceiling and see what happened.
6:18
20. Inexpensive craft store frames fit
6:20
perfectly around your light switch covers.
6:22
started with regular switch plates that you
6:24
have in your home.
6:25
The good news is: you can mess them up,
6:27
they are cheap to replace.
6:29
This is the hard part.
6:31
Finding frames that fit what you want to do.
6:33
(I suggest taking your plates with you
6:35
and holding the frames against them right
6:37
in the store).
6:38
If you are great at “mitering”,
6:40
and want to make them all uniform,
6:41
you can always use pieces of
6:43
trim to create the frame.
6:45
Next,
6:46
glued them onto the plates using Krazy Glue.
6:48
As with all products, please follow safety
6:50
directions found on the package.
6:52
Next spray painted them.
6:54
(Again, please read instruction on the can.
6:56
use a face mask and spray in a well-ventilated
6:59
area.)
7:00
Lastly, sprayed a gloss clear top coat.
7:03
Once they were nice and dry, put the covers
7:05
on the switches like you normally would.
7:06
I couldn’t be happier with the results!
7:09
Of course, now I think I NEED to paint my
7:11
trim
7:12
but that’s for another uncertain time in the
7:15
future.

7:44
and
7:45
11 inch straight pipe (lamp shade making kind)
7:49
if working with the standard “boob light”
7:51
(if you’re working with a semi-flushmount
7:53
“boob light”,
7:53
then you may not need any straight pipe).
7:56
The process requires little muscle.
7:58
To get a nice punched metal ceiling light
8:00
shade like this
8:01
You have to follow 7 instructions
8:04
completed with photos and manuals.
8:06
Fresh your mind before you

8:37
planking a wall is a cheap and
8:39
easy weekend project.
8:41
Do I like the color? No. –
8:43
Does it matter?
8:45
No…

I knew it was getting painted,
8:48
so I didn’t care one bit. Plus,
8:49
it was super cheap.

9:19
movable, and no-sew.
9:21
First thing:
9:22
grabbed a brightly colored fabric remnant
9:24
from Joann’s.
9:26
And decided that it would be the perfect project
9:28
to try out fabric glue.
9:29
And magnets, of course.
9:31
then folded down the top edge and spaced
9:33
four magnets right under the fold and glued
9:35
them.
9:35
used scratch paper underneath so the glue
9:37
wouldn’t stick to the table.
9:39
Next,
9:40
glued, a bit of green ribbon across
9:42
the seam to give it support
9:44
Last step,
9:45
Pom Poms! love them.
9:47
The world could definitely use more pom poms.
9:50
And this little window covering was begging
9:53
for pom poms.
9:54
It’s simple,
9:55
just glued a string of white to the bottom
9:57
edge of the blind.
9:58
And Done,
9:59
few inches of the bottom of the window
10:00
uncovered so some light would still stream
10:02
in.
10:03
27. Un-stain and re-stain your furniture.
