Salvaged Stairs

18 May

I thought this was a great idea to bring a little bit of “comfy” into a renovated home. Old apple boxes, etc. can be found at any flea market around for cheap cheap cheap! It helps give some color and interest in a very subtle way…just enough pizazz added to a boring staircase!

Styled with paint

5 May

There isn’t a more affordable option to spruce up a joint than paint…and it doesn’t have to be on the plain old walls. You can use paint to create a lot of things such as an accent wall or a backsplash. This is a great example of putting a little hit of color in an interesting spot to make a space pop. The blue is a pretty exciting color (which I love) but if you aren’t as adventurous a more muted color would add it’s own appeal. Happy painting!
