Creative dark bedroom makeover

Bedrooms are usually bright and peaceful. However, they don’t always have to be this way. A dark bedroom can be equally attractive if decorated with appealing elements. If you don’t believe us, we have the perfect example to convince you. This bedroom used to be bright and sunny but it just didn’t look good. It had beige walls and matching furniture but it was lacking style.

The owners were aware of that and decide to change it. They decided to give the bedroom a makeover. The most important change was the color of the walls. They decided to paint the walls dark gray. They also added patterned rugs, gold accents and colorful artwork. This way every elements pops p on that dark background. Also, dark walls are not nearly as depressing as you might imagine. The colors seem more vivid and bright and the atmosphere is cozy and inviting.


Simple but amazing wall shelving and desk unit makeover

These images are the perfect example that we must trust ourselves and not be afraid of coming up with ideas, with our own design. If we do it and the result proves to be as satisfactory as this one, then we will definitely be happy about it and not feel sorry for having tried and trusted ourselves!

The 16 shelves follow the idea of an entire wall for book storage and workspace, one that certainly meets all your needs. It is both practical and stylish, it serves as a desk, as cabinet storage, as a bookshelf and it also houses a pull-down projection screen for watching movies. The more you observe it, the more you like its elegance and simplicity. The three rows of shelves hold art books, novels, comic books and artwork and everything looks perfect in this place.


Minimalist small bathroom makeover

Not a lot of people pay attention to the bathroom. But if you have the time and resources you can turn your bathroom into a spa, a place for relaxation. This inspiring bathroom makeover is the perfect example for that. This bathroom used to look good, but it also had the potential to look much better so the owner decided to give it a makeover. It was a simple 125 square-foot room that has been renovated and turned into an artistic, spa-like area. Now it’s a modern and sleek bathroom with a minimalist interior.

The space has been functionally divided and smartly used. The colors used are light and airy. The fixtures are sleek and simple. The new bathroom has a more elegant look and it even has real furniture inside. The focal point in the new bathroom is the bathtub. It’s situated underneath the window. The bathroom also features a sleek glass shower. It took the owners a little over 3 months to renovate the bathroom, including design, obtaining the permission, the construction, inspection and delays in procuring some of the materials.


Cute DIY Tableware Tabletop Lamp

These days I took a look into the kitchen cabinets of my grandmother. I was amazed by the multitude of things that were there: old silver spoons, vintage teacups, some cute small bowls, an old teapot and all sorts of these things. I was even more impressed how she could keep all of them and even more in other places. I guess all these vintage tableware accessories remind her of the times she has lived, the moments when she was happy to buy them for her own house.

I could not throw all of them as some of them looked very nice so I thought of those DIY projects where you can use this kind of vintage stuff and create some wonderful objects for the house.It is also the case of this really cute DIY Tableware Tabletop Lamp. If you are the owner of some vintage china teapots, pots, saucers and small bowls you are the perfect candidate for this project. Still you will also need some other things like:  Super glue gel, some self-hardening clay, a simple lamp shade and a socket-and-cord unit.


How to create a functional and organized closet space

I don’t know about you but my closet is always messy. My cloths are all over the place and even if I spend an entire day cleaning and organizing everything, in less than a week it’s all in vain. That’s mostly because I always ruin everything when I need to get dressed and leave and then when I get back I just throw my cloths on a chair. So let’s see how we can all avoid that.

This is a project meant to make us more organized. It refers mainly to men but it can be adapted for women as well. Here are the materials you’ll need for this project: ultralight MDF molding, peg board, screen clips, staple gun and craft knife. First take the measurements for the space you want to transform and then build a frame from MDF molding. Paint the frame and screw the screen clips onto its back. Install the peg board with the hooks and the baskets. Use the craft knife to piece a hole where the hooks will go. Then install hangers on the back so that you can hang it on the wall.


Before and After: From Waste to Beautiful Silk Screened Style

One of the things that I adore to vintage pieces of furniture is their high quality. There are used high quality materials, the work is done with responsibility and pleasure and the result is an exquisite piece which is very useful and beautiful at the same time for any house. The disadvantage is that they need some repairing and modifications in time as are not so good looking anymore as when they were new.

Thus you may transform chairs, armchairs or sofas into some beautiful pieces that can decorate your interiors and make you feel proud of your work and the fact that you have saved some precious pieces of furniture from waste. All these pieces will get a new image and will still continue to enchant our sights and be useful to us.


DIY table with a compartment for plants

This is yet another interesting DIY project for you to try. It’s a fun and creative table with a lovely central compartment for plants. It’s also a simple project. The table is of small dimensions and is made of an old shipping crate and some other scraps of wood. With those materials alone you can create a lovely patio side table.

In order to be able to make this table, first you’ll have to find a shipping crate and to deconstruct it. The crate used to make the table in the pictures was about 20 x 28 x 5 inches. You’ll also need lots of screws and nails. A compartment has been created in the middle. You can easily notice it by the lighter color of the wood. In that compartment a small garden will be created.
