These are not your average knickknack shelves! They are a completely unique spin on tall bookshelves. This is a do-it-yourself project that is entirely achievable. First, set a Lazy Susan on the ground for the base. Take a cheap, tall bookshelf and place it on top of the Lazy Susan. Attach a mirror to the front and a cork board on the side! Now you have rotating shelves that can double as a bookcase, a clipboard, and a mirror! it doesn’t get much more convenient than this.
If you are looking for a cork board similar to the one in the above picture, click the below image link and you’ll see a variety of options in different sizes (or, you could combine several smaller ones to make the required size!)
Finally you can use your old, dusty bookshelves for something useful. You can even attach hooks on the sides, as the decorator has done here; where you can hang your purses, belts, or sweaters. These efficient decorative items would go great in any dorm room, apartment, or suite. Now you can place your books, pictures, photo albums, makeup, knickknacks, and clothes all in the same place.

Believe it or not, there is a use for old or broken doors. Use them as a table! The decorator here used a finished, green colored door for a table top and it looks fantastic. This is a definite do-it-yourself project that uses a lot of creativity but not much effort!
Just take an unused door, remove the hinges, and install it to four pieces of lumber. Now you have a lovely coffee table to sit right in your living room. Buying furniture can be expensive, but using old or useless furniture to make NEW furniture doesn’t cost a thing! Read more →
Why has nobody ever thought of this? It not only looks amazing but appears to be spacious and efficient as well. These drawers were probably taken from an old dresser or a cabinet, then installed directly into this cupboard to use as moving shelves.
The decorator here brilliantly used the smaller drawers at the top of the cupboard, leading down into bigger drawers. Now every time this door is opened, you will find yourself with plenty of food choices, all neatly organized in their own separate drawer. When you’ve picked something, simply push all the drawers in and shut the door! What a simple and amazing process. Installation is a simple process, as well. Read more →
Wow, a tanning bed installed directly into the shower? That’s completely ingenious. A clever and convenient idea for anyone who enjoys tanning in their spare time. We all have busy schedules, but what about those of us who still want to look good while working hard? Why not tan while you shower?
If I hadn’t already known that this was a tanning salon, I would still think this shower was gorgeous. It’s not too often that you think a shower looks pretty, as they all look the same. With the added colors of the tanning salon, this shower brightens up the whole bathroom. Read more →
Who ever knew that a door could be known for its décor? This one just made the top of my list. When I saw this lovely door, I thought of an Ace of Spades card. This door looks amazing from the start. It’s bordered with an impressive outline of white open-paneled squares, making the door stand out above all others. I love the color and design too! The triangle top-pattern makes the door front a masterpiece of design. The door knocker and the handle are equally as impressive. Colored black, these aspects fit the door perfectly. Read more →
This is an incredible scenery. I was instantly reminded of a tropical jungle or a famous nursery that costs money to get into. This backyard is fun and flawless. It looks like the gardeners spent a great deal of time on each individual plant or flower, because every single one is stunningly gorgeous. The grass almost makes the whole picture; it’s obviously makeshift, but it works perfectly with the theme.
All the colors here are bright and beautiful. The front covering for the flower bed was a smart idea for keeping the flowers secure, and it looks lovely as well. I love the pink and yellow flowers set up in the flower bed. Read more →
We have an excellent use of white and off-white in this master bedroom. This room looks like it was pulled straight from the luxury suite of a five star hotel. The bed looks almost too beautiful to sleep in, with the perfect shade of white for the comforters and the white/gray pillows perfectly arranged by color.
The nightstand to the left of the bed is unique and awesome. Judging from the view, it appears that its designed out of metal or steel. What a clever and original idea, swaying from the usual wooden material for nightstands. The décor on the nightstand is totally glamorous. Read more →
This finished basement looks like it was dropped straight down from heaven. It uses completely consistent colors and appears to be a welcoming room to walk in to. First of all, those tan-colored stairs are drop dead gorgeous.
Every other step actually has a light built right in to its base; what a clever and unique idea. The railings on either side of the stairs are finished off with a magnificent mahogany brown.
The bar is obviously the main attraction of this room; with different shades of brown acting as the theme. It has the look of a modern, classy sports bar while still keeping that homey look we all love. The bar contains three beautifully finished bar stools, along with original hanging lights and a flat screen TV. Read more →
Wow, this room is amazing! From the carpet to the furniture to the curtains, this living room area looks like a warm and happy place to relax. Even though this is a small setting, the decorator managed to make every item in the room stand out. My eyes went straight to the Ikea ottoman before anything else.
I love the black and white striped pattern. Black and white and stripes go with everything and this room theme is no exception. I see that it is actually being used as a coffee table, which seems to work out just fine. Read more →
This is almost too good to be true. The scene strongly reminds me of the meadow scene in “Alice in Wonderland”. There must be thousands of little flowers blanketed here, all surrounding a little tree.
Rosemary flowers are not only drop dead gorgeous, but an efficient way to decorate a garden as well. These types of flowers have no allergens and surprisingly require little water. These are the best kinds of flowers to have in your yard, because they can still look beautiful without the need for much maintenance. Read more →
