Want to give your home a mini makeover in a weekend? Check out these simple decorating projects for inspiration.
1. While a fresh coat of colorful paint can revive a piece of furniture, you can take it a step further by adding pattern, too. Use paint pens to draw designs on drawer fronts, tabletops, and more.
2. Give one wall in a room a dose of pattern with a stencil. It's less time-consuming than stenciling a whole room, and you'll need less paint. For subtle contrast, use a color for the pattern that is just a few shades lighter than the background.
3. Give a favorite photo prime placement in a room. Enlarge the photo and place it in an oversize frame.
4. Look at everyday objects as potential masterpieces. Take photographs of a few interesting objects, and adjust the exposure, saturation and color with a photo-editing program. Order large prints, and frame them on black mats in white frames.
