Even adding one unique decorative item or minimizing clutter to make any space look neat and attractive is a very eye-catching first move for beginners at any home decorating project. Once you’ve taken this first step, it is then easier to make other changes as you go along.
The first step would be to determine your favorite colors. Sift through some spare material if you have any in the house or you can always check out a thrift store for antique or rich fabric pieces to begin our first easy and fast home decorating idea- making a slip-cover for an ottoman!
An ottoman affords a new look to your personal space and also allows you to truly put up your feet after a hard day. Making the slip cover is easy enough too. We recommend you use an empty carton, crate or sturdy wooden box. Cover this carton with your fabric swatches. If you cannot find any at home, you can always get cheap fabric from discount shops or craft supply stores. These stores often have surplus stashes of materials they are ready to sell at cheap prices. Use fabric glue or staple gun to put together.
For making detachable covers for your DIY ottoman, it is important you chose a base that has strong basic structure, cover it with fabric texture and color that matches the other soft furnishings or wall colors in the room and jazz this up with beads, borders, ribbons and patches for a fashionable look. You can also place a printed or textured, fluffy area rug below the footrest to create a high-end result that is so very chic and in these days!
Another great way to make a space real snazzy in a short time is to check out the office supplies section in the stationary store for colorful memo pads. Use these squares to make a mosaic border on a single wall or all around a room. You can immediately cheer up any dull space with these post-its available in bright blues, deep oranges, sunshine yellows and lime greens stuck alternately. The best part about using these post its is the fact that the colors and arrangements can be changed any time you feel like it.
Finally, use good skirting to do up your bedroom in a striking manner with a wide range of textures, prints and materials these can easily be purchased from your favorite discount home decor store. Complement the shades of these with a matching area rug or a throw rug on your easy chair for an instant makeover to any space!
