10. Mini-Blinds To Roman Shades
Break out your scissors! You can easily turn your old mini-blinds into roman shades with a few snips (oh, and a bit of sewing for the actual shade), but you can easily use the hardware from mini blinds to customize your own shades! Apparently, you can also buy blinds at Walmart for less than $5, so even if you don’t have blinds to spare, you can pick them up new for little cost. Go check out the step-by-step instructions for this project over at Sawdust & Embryos. Your windows will thank you!
11. Add Molding To Cabinets
Outdated cabinetry has the biggest impact on your home’s decor, especially if the color and design doesn’t match your style, and it can certainly be one of the biggest investments in your home, but with a few added pieces of molding and paint, you can make them look brand new on a budget! To add molding to flat doors check out this tutorial here, and if you like the breadboard, you will want to check out this inspiring transformation.
12. Hang Curtains High & Wide
Just because you have small windows doesn’t mean you have to frame them small! Give the illusion of larger windows by hanging your drapes high and wide. This creates more drama to the room, making the walls look taller, and room airier. And, the more panels, the better. You want your curtains to look full and luxurious! Read more about this here.
