Colorful Hand Painted Bottles and Jars

The beauty of your living room will increase if you put in your personal touch in small corners and unexpected places. One easy way you can add grace and beauty to your living room, is by making effective use of old mason jars, glass milk bottles and wine bottles. These glass bottles can be cleaned, scrapped from labels and then hand painted using whatever leftover paint is at home. Flower vases colored in different shades of same color theme or in contrasting shades can be placed as flower or foliage holders, in different corners of the house.

Create Unique Wall Art

wallsWall art is something that can enliven the walls of your living room in an instant giving it a classy designer touch. The process of creating wall art has no specific rule and ideally you should give free reign to your imagination. You can create stunning wall art by printing the lyrics of your favorite song on a colorful washboard.

Take up catchy lines like “raindrops keep falling on my head” or “I was lucky like a 4 leaved clover” and then buy a bunch of those black/ white vinyl letters that are found in strips. Stick those letters on a colorful board and then decorate the empty space with motifs (optional). You can take old unused paintings and use them as a background for your lyrical wall art too/ or you can take trashed pine board patches and hand paint them to create a smashing background for your wall art.

Display Personal Collections

The living room should be a true extension of your personality and not some unsynchronized designer project. Give your living room a personal signature by putting up your personal collections for display. For example, you could have an amazing coin collection which you can frame and put up for display. Or you could have an eclectic collection of books which you can display artistically on wall racks in your living room. A nature lover can display collection of potted plants and indoor gardens, while a geologist can display interesting stone and rock collections. The idea is to bring your personality as an extension into your living room.

DIY Cushion Covers

You can use the good part of the fabric and turn it into durries, floor throws and cushion covers. Nothing enlivens and charms up a room more than a bunch of colorful cushions. All you have to do is to cut out the good fabric and then mix and match it to create amazingly colorful covers.
