More Reno’s maybe time to get the kids involved?

Published on

Halfway through our reno list, and you might want to get your kids to help. Art class: from finger painting to framing, a little can go a long way, but sometimes bigger is better! 50 When framing artwork, use an oversized matte and frame for a sophisticated and stylish gallery look. 51 Display your wardrobe or collectibles as art. Use display hooks and picture ledges to display hats, handbags or accessory collections as art on your walls. It’s a chic storage and display idea. 52 Combine several textured elements (shiny, matte, soft or rough), to add richness to a space. 53 Use colourful accent pieces, such as throw pillows, that can easily be changed with the seasons or latest trends. 54 Glue magnets onto the backs of fabulous faux flowers and affix to the edge of solid-coloured tablecloths for a pretty springtime touch. 55 Decorative molding made of Styrofoam is a cheap and easy to install alternative to crown molding. 56 Hang rugs, tapestries and small blankets or scarves on a wall if you need to cover a large, empty space. Not only will it look lovely but it will act as additional soundproofing in your home. 57 Create a new duvet cover by sewing two broadsheets together. 58 Group framed children’s paintings, drawings and craft projects with photos to create a wall display. 59 Blackboards and bulletin boards are useful helpers in kids’ rooms, entryways and in the kitchen.

60 Decorate according your interests. If you like music, frame some sheet music or hang album covers on the walls as art.
