I’ve done posts in the past about easy and inexpensive ways to tweak your decor. You know, the little things that can really add something to a room. The things you don’t always think about. Well, here is another quickie.
My sideboard is an inexpensive Ikea prefab. My husband and I have had it since our apartment days and it’s surprisingly, lasted quite well. Now it lives in our family room storing a few kiddie toys, the ‘good’ dishes and tv components. I know.. it’s quite a mix, but it’s behind doors so nobody knows… er… knew lol.
The top has a glass piece. And for some ridiculous reason I’ve not done this before… but a layer of glass just begs for something to be put under it.
I have lots of scrapbooking paper so that’s what I chose, but a roll of wallpaper, wrapping paper or even leftover fabric would do the trick.
I laid out the paper and attached my squares together to form one big piece and cut it to the size of the glass. Then slipped it underneath and voila. A little extra detail! The nice thing is, it’s easy to change, and can be changed seasonally if desired.
The main reason for this post? If you’re decor is getting a little tired or stale, look around. There just might be an inexpensive way to brighten things up!
Here are a few other examples of quick decor tweaks that I have done in the past…
