Having enough light in the house is something that every home needs, no matter where you live or how big it is. Old ceiling lights can be an eyesore, and they can be harder to swap out if the redecorating bug bites you. But with just a few items you can find at any craft store or second-hand shop, it’s possible for you to create something unique and creative.
Get an old hanging planter, and drape it in yarn or another material that will allow light to pass through. Attach the planter over the light in your ceiling and change up the entire focus of the room.
Delicious and Handy
If you love classy wooden furniture, you probably live in fear of each and every scratch. Scratches reduce the value, make them less attractive, and, unfortunately, are bound to happen eventually. But there's a common food item you can use to get rid of small scratches quickly: walnuts.
Yes, it's true – rub a walnut over a wooden scratch several times, and then rub the scratched area with your fingers. The oil from the nut can fill in the scratch without affecting the color. In the end, use a soft cloth to buff the area. This is best for small scratches, not deep gouges, but it seems like magic.
Give Those Plants Space
When people think of “cute,” cinder blocks are one of the things furthest from their minds. But you can still utilize these bog-standard pieces of construction stonework. If you're trying to get more space for your little plants, stack a number of cinder blocks on top of each other.
Tuck a few plants inside the holes to give them a place to grow, and you can also use them as support for a table or workbench. Create this easy item outside or in a greenhouse, and easily add some green to the gray. There is nothing like being surrounded by greenery, no matter how small it is.
Make it Fit Your Home
For homes that have a specific look from the moment you enter the front door, a boxy and modern-looking router, while important, might be a little bit of a sore item. You present your finest china, display the best souvenirs you bought from abroad, and then the router and everything that goes with it has to ruin the look.
There are plenty of ways to camouflage or hide this internet item. For one example, take some old books you don't want anymore, remove the pages and glue the books together. Slip the router inside the now-empty covers, leaving the wires and antennae free, and voila – it's now hidden.
