This hack will turn your home office desk into the Chuck Norris of desks. Dressing a desk up with a skirt might sound weird, but let us explain. When you put a skirt under your desk, you give people the impression your desk is a meaningful piece of furniture used by someone with a 401(k).
At the same time, you turn pants-wearing into an optional choice, and you can take a secret post-lunch nap under there. You’ll need a long tension rod and a couple of short ones. Mount them in the top part of the inside frame and add curtains that reach the floor.
Use Fabric to Improve Your Kitchen
Most kitchens are about seventy percent cabinets. We all need plenty of space to hold plates, cups, pots and pans, and everything else our daily lives need. Old wooden cabinets start to feel drab and boring after seeing them every day for months, especially if they all have the same dry color.
One solution you can try out is to remove the cabinet doors and replace them with fabric drapes. You still won’t have to look at your old dishes, but you can pick your favorite pattern or color, measure out the right amount, and staple it to the top of the cabinets.
DIY Room Divider
Lofts or studio apartments could use a nice dividing wall for when you feel like having some privacy. And the good news is that you don't need to get a contractor and mortgage your kidneys to set up a divider.
What you need are a tension rod and a top-to-bottom curtain. This could also work for other spaces — large or small that need some sort of division. After all, we all need a break from other people's faces sometimes.
Painter's Tape Perfection
Painter's tape isn't only for making clean lines for paint, but it can be used whenever a person needs a clean line. One we found useful was to use for caulking our tubs and windows. The clean lines make them look professionally done, and we love showing them off.
If you want to do this too, just grab your nearest roll of painter's tape and tape both sides of where you will caulk. Once removed, you will have a perfectly caulked surface each time.
This One Is an Ace
No one wants a door to be slammed into the wall of your house, but you also don’t feel like drilling into the baseboard to install a new doorstop. Well, one of France’s oldest sports may be of help.
Simply cut a slit in a tennis ball and place it on your doorknob. This will prevent the door from slamming into the wall and not require you to do any carpentry. It’s a quick and easy solution and will save you (and your house owner) stress from worrying about leaving a dent in the wall.
