You have lots of stuff around the house right now, at this very moment, that can be utilized on the cheap for decorative transformation of a room. You just don’t know it. Perhaps because you have been led by Military-Industrial-Decorating-Complex to think you have to buy all new stuff. Or perhaps you don’t know it because you just aren’t looking at what you have already got with the perspective you need.
Almost everybody has cardboard boxes lying around the house somewhere. And chances are they are just going to sit around the house as a second home for roaches and other bugs until you finally stop procrastinating and throw them away. How about putting them to use as surprisingly decorative décor? It’s easy, really. Buy some attractive decorative paper-wallpaper, contact paper or even construction paper will do-and apply it to the both the inside and the outside of the cardboard boxes. Then stack the cardboard boxes beside each other or on top of each other. Boom, you now have a decorative storage area for everything from video game boxes to office supplies.
Got any extra fabric hanging around? Scraps of fabric can be utilized to make a bold decorative statement in any room. Even very small pieces of fabric can be called into duty, but the bigger the fabric, the more vibrant the statement. Invest in some inexpensive wall trim and nail it to the wall and then attach the artistically pleasing fabric to the wall within the trim. An especially striking design choice is to cut two large pieces of fabric into a long, narrow arch shape and then find some arched trim. The result is a bold Middle Eastern touch than can be the defining focal point of a room based around that style.
Got a black marking pen? Does not matter if it is the actual brand name or not, what you really have there is a magical wand for interior decorating. A black marker can be put to use on any object in the house that is white to transform it into something that looks like an outline drawing. Just draw the marker down the most prominent lines and the result will be something that looks like an outline drawing. Or grab an object that can be traced and place it up against the wall. Use the black marker to trace around the object and fill in the space and what is left behind is a decorative silhouette. Simple. Cheap. And you probably already have all the ingredients for interior decorating in the house somewhere right at this moment.
