She Cut Pool Noodles In Half And DUCT TAPED Them Together! Her Reason? Perfect For The Living Room!

It seems weird to want to put a floating device where you’re supposed to decorate, right? Well, it’s not weird if you can’t even tell they’re noodles anymore! Vicki from the blog, Mother Daughter Projects, shared the cutest idea to use pool noodles in order to create a footstool! The way it works is actually so simple, and think about how nice it would be to have one in your living room that’s light enough to move wherever you’re sitting! To make the project, Vicki gathered pool noodles, hot glue, upholstery fabric, batting foam, duct tape, spray glue, and fabric glue. She started by gathering the pool noodles.

And while hearts are incorporated, and they are perfect for Valentine’s Day treats, these fun containers can be used year round! So, I dug around in my recycled container collection and pulled out a pickle jar and a holiday pretzel container. For this project, you can use any container that you like, but these seemed to work out well for my purposes. I used a pickle jar, a holiday pretzel container, burlap ribbon, colored felt, embroidery floss, and polymer clay for these fun containers. You can find the free pattern for the hearts and bones on my website on the link below. Attach the bone to the hearts with a blanket stitch. Wrap the containers with a couple layers of burlap ribbon, attaching with hot glue. Glue on pretty coordinating ribbons. Roll out the polymer clay and use the smaller bone pattern to cut out a bone ornament. Furniture: Updating with Black Spray Paint. Back in 2002, I was on the cutting edge of the black painted furniture craze, when after doing a kitchen renovation at my house in Georgia, I painted my kitchen chairs black (which I shared about 2 years ago here).

Furniture: Updating with Black Spray Paint

And I haven’t looked back since then. There have been many more furniture transformations using black paint since that day.

Covering your furniture with slipcovers is a great idea for transforming the look and feel of a small room. Ready made slipcovers are relatively inexpensive to buy, and are perfect for disguising that outdated 1970s couch or for hiding those stains or tears on your favorite arm chair. They come in all kinds of colors, patterns and fabrics, so you can really let your creative side take over and add your own personal touch to your décor. A real bonus of furniture covers is that they are usually fully machine-washable, so it’s easy to keep them clean and looking their best – and there’s no need to worry about them getting dirty. Color is key, especially when decorating a small space, as your color scheme will influence the mood and appearance of the room.

Decide on a main color scheme for your large surfaces, such as your walls and floor but also those larger items of furniture such as sofas and chairs that take up a significant amount of space in a small room. Article by Simon Phillips. Drum Floor Pouf DIY. Ok, deep question time: Are you a "floor sitter"? In other words, if you go to a party at someone's house, do you always end up sitting on the floor even when there are available seats? I know I do. The past two winters, my husband and I have spent most of our free time laying, sitting, or kneeling on the floor as close to the fire as we can, trying to soak up all it's warm goodness.
