DIY Crafts For Your Hall and Living Room
The good old wine cork
Wine corks are so versatile, that they can be used to make so many big and small things to decorate your house. After you’ve read this, you will not throw out even a single one!
Paint some of the corks in bright colours or ombre shades and nail them on to a wooden board. Put up the board in your room and use it to hang your necklaces, ties, or any light-weight articles that are lying around.
Wine corks can also be sliced into round pieces. Use a glue gun to stick them on a photo frame. Or even better, frame your living room mirror with these cork pieces to give that dull mirror a cool and contemporary look.
DIY Night Stand
Stop! Don’t discard your old table. Instead, cut them into equal halves and paint them in the same or different colours. Fix the table near your bed and use it as a night stand to keep your phone, watch or glasses.
Being creative with the corners.
Most houses have a boring corner stand with a few books or knick-knacks as means to use up the corner space. This place in the house is aplenty. There are four corners in each room or hall. Here’s what you can do to completely change the corner space:
- Create a reading nook. Spread out an old, cosy looking rug on the floor and throw in some cushions. Use a curved curtain rod to hang up some curtains in the corner. You can also add an extra light for reading. Or simply use the space to relax with your pet.
- Get out a bottle of black paint and start doodling your favourite corner in your room. Get more creative and add colours. This will truly be a testimony of your artistic streak !!
- Fish out that old, antique brass pot or vessel that your grandma once used in her kitchen. Plant a decorative indoor plant in it and place it in the corner. Voila!! That touch of greenery will surely soothe your nerves!
