Furniture made with pallet
Like crates, pallets can also be easily found and transformed into decorating elements for the home. Even the preparation and finishing process is done in the same way, with the difference that the pallets are larger and give a little more work.
But the generous dimensions of pallets also have good points. They allow you to assemble large and sturdy furniture, such as beds and TV panels. The use of parts as a base for mattress has become a trend and continues high, especially if the goal is to build a low or Japanese bed.
Objects transformed into pots
Distributing plants and flowers through the environments is a great strategy to make the house cheerful and full of life. Therefore, the lack of beautiful pots to put the arrangements can not be reason to stop cultivating some small changes.
In these cases, it is possible to transform everyday objects that are unused in custom containers. They can be cracked mugs or cups, paint or canned cans, an old kettle or teapot and small watering cans.
Even an antique cabinet with drawers can serve as a stand for plants, and looks lovely in the yard or on the porch of the house. To create a cool effect, keep the drawers open – the ones slightly lower than the ones above – and then fill them all with soil and the selected species.
Refurbished antique furniture
With creativity, it is possible to give new life to that mobile full of personality that is in poor condition due to the passage of time. The process requires patience, but the result can look amazing with the right sandpaper, a little paint, fabric, sticker or wallpaper.
There are many coating options available, with different colors, finish types and textures to customize a single piece. Everything will depend on the style chosen, which should harmonize with the decor of the environment.
In a modern room, for example, you can include a colored furniture to counteract with the neutral tones that predominate in the place. Already a room decorated in the vintage style requires pieces decorated and worked in pastel shades – salmon, lilac, turquoise – or, still, with floral print.
Decoration with washi tape
Since the traditional Japanese adhesive tapes began to color, the world of decoration and craftsmanship has been invaded by a wave of creative possibilities. Made with washi paper, these tapes are called washi tapes and can be used to decorate everything you imagine, from the dome of a lamp to an entire wall.
There are models with pure colors and also stamped with polka dots, stripes and abstract designs. Choose your favorite to compose horizontal and vertical stripes on the walls, assemble figures and phrases, improvise photo frames and paper frames or even create a ribbon tree in the Christmas decoration.
The washi tapes can also cover details of furniture and other elements such as doors, windows, switches and lift columns. And do not have to be afraid to move the house with them, after all, they are easy to apply and remove.
Although it seems difficult, painting the wall is not so complex and does not require excessive spending. With enough care and a little patience, you can create wonderful effects in the bedroom, the living room and even in the kitchen.
In addition to the common process, which covers the entire surface, try investing in stencil painting. The technique is best suited to create symbols, designs and words. To do so, you just need to print paper molds in the desired format – by reproducing letters or figures – and cutting the center of each.
Then place the chosen template on the wall and then fill the figure with spray paint. Repeat the same process until you reach the desired result and wait for drying. To make it even more interesting, choose an ink color that contrasts with the background tone.
Another simple idea that can be made with paint is a blackboard. There are already products that give this effect and that are suitable for painting environments. The cool thing is that, after it dries, the paint on the board makes it possible for you to draw and write sentences with chalk.
