2016-09-28 06:00

PERSONALISE your home yourself in a fun and memorable way.

The one of a kind furnishing of your choice as well as any collectibles can be pretty expensive, but you can save by creating vintage décor­ of your own.

Avoid designs that have parts that are too hard to clean. There are tons of ideas you can find, all of them creative and unique in their own way. There are also plenty of projects that are rewarding, fun to work with and pretty easy to work on.

You can turn the empty corners of a room into something beautiful with the use of a vintage style door plate wall. How - easy – all you need is to hang some vintage-looking plates on an old door of your choice. Choose some interesting ones with varying colors and motives to make for a nice, bright spot around your living room or dining room.

Making your own crate boot rack

A boot rack can be made of crates, which is functional and pretty good looking, possesses a rustic charm of its own. To make it you will need to have crates, metal brackets, a drill and some casters and screws. You can combine as many crates as you feel necessary to make racks of your own.

You can make your very own vintage looking wooden spools all for a pretty low price. You will need a three-foot long dowel rod, wood stain, a drill with a 3/8 inch bit, wood glue, a saw and some circle stamps. To finish them off you will need stamps from a craft closet, some bits of rope, ribbon, twine and a marker.

All you really need to do to make this work is some acrylic shapes as well as clips that will give you a chance to use it in the most useful way possible. Hang your messages on it, clip them on after attaching it to a wall and it will have a chance at a new life. - Women24
