With a new house and so many new rooms to decorate, I have really been searching for great products to decorate and accessorize my house. However, I have a tight budget and don't want to spend a whole lot because with three small kids, the design may change with their age, things may get wrecked (or drawn on!) and our style may always evolve!
So today I want to share some great tips and DIY projects from Brewster Home Fashions that I have found very helpful in my house.
Below, Paula Berberian, Creative Director of wallpaper powerhouse Brewster Home Fashions, creator of WallPops, shares five easy DIY projects, featuring three types of wall décor repurposed in creative ways to revive the forgotten beauty and worth of household items.
Start small – That old jewelry box was the perfect buy ten years ago, but your tastes may have evolved and maybe today it’s feeling too childish. Using WallPops allows you to easily upcycle this forgotten piece and incorporate your personal style. To get a truly unique look, use multiple decal kits for added color and design. For detailed instructions on how to complete this project, check out the tutorial on the WallPops blog.
Bring life to your dull refrigerator – “Whether you want to bring color to the kitchen, turn your fridge into a chalkboard masterpiece or organize your hectic life, WallPops allows you to decorate and redecorate without damage,” advises Berberian. A fridge can be just something to store your food in, but design lovers see the potential for a focal point. To see this project in action, watch the tutorial on the WallPops blog.
Refashion a timeworn dresser – Maybe you’ve had it since childhood or maybe you found it at a thrift store in college, but you can skip buying a new chest of drawers if wear and tear is minimal or only on the surface. To create an entirely unique piece that your friends and family will fawn over, use peel-and-stick nuWallpaper by WallPops for an upcycled masterpiece. Because NuWallpaper is constructed of a thick 5 mL substrate, it is easy to handle and to reposition large pieces without stretching or tearing – perfect for those bigger projects that call for one large pattern.
Add dimension to a tired nightstand – You grasped the art of u sing decals and peel-and-stick wallpaper to upcycle home furnishings, so why not try traditional wallpaper now? Using wallpaper offers the ability to add texture and depth. “You can use intricate foil designs that reflect light or add textured paper to give anything depth and dimension,” explains Berberian. For step-by-step instructions on how to upcycle with wallpaper, view the tutorial on the Brewster Home Fashions blog.
Create discreet detail on a bookshelf – “It’s important to remember that even small spaces can add so much to the overall aesthetics of the room,” concludes Berberian. Adding a fun design to the backing of a bookshelf brings style and detail to the room that will catch your eye without being overpowering. It’s the perfect way to make the shelf unique to your tastes while dressing up books, vases or whatever items it carries.
Look at yard sales, thrift stores or even in your parent’s garage for your next upcycled treasure!
