Here are five simple steps to designing the room of your dreams. First, find pictures that inspire you, from magazines or websites. Take inventory of what you already own. Ask yourself what needs to be removed, recycled, or repurposed. Get wall and window measurements to create a basic floor plan; and consider colors, fabrics and finishes you love. Finally, come up with a budget for your design project. Be realistic, so there are no expensive surprises on the backend.

Supplies
  • Inspiring Photos from Magazines, or the Internet
  • Tape Measure
  • Colors, Fabrics, Paint
  • Budget
Instructions

Want the elegant look of wallpaper, but not the hassle or cost?  Here’s how to use paint in a whole new way. Buy your favorite shade of interior latex in both flat and semi gloss. Paint your wall with a flat coat first. Let it dry and use painter’s tape to make vertical stripes. Measure carefully between stripes. Now paint your wall with the semi gloss paint. After a few hours, remove the tape. The difference in finish creates a high-end custom wallpaper look you’ll love.

Supplies
  • Paint (Flat and Semi Gloss)
  • Paint Pan, Brush and Rollers
  • Painters Tape
  • Measuring Tape
