Painted the same color, mismatched secondhand dining chairs look happy together. Use white for a simple look, or embolden your dining room by painting the chairs a deep, rich color.

Remove the jackets, then group books by color, standing some upright and stacking others. Shelves will seem more organized and have an artistic, color blocked look.

A pair of oversize urns is a foolproof scheme for a mantel. It's easy and a little glam, especially if the urns are a great color.

Make an easy table runner for your next get together with assorted paper napkins. Lay out napkins (we used lunch size, but cocktail size would also work) in your desired design, tape the edges together, and flip it over.

In place of a predictable coffee table, use two inexpensive side tables. Outline the edges with strips of nailhead trim for a high end look.

A corbel is a clever perch for an accessory. Try painting it a bright color to draw attention to whatever you put on it.

Cheery dish towels are a super inexpensive way to bring a little zing into the kitchen. I always find great towels at World Market and Anthropologie.

Plants are an underappreciated decorating tool. They bring life and color to a room, they're relatively inexpensive, and they're good for you, too.

Have a card you can't bear to throw away? Put it in a frame or easier yet perch it on a little easel, and you've got art.

Thinking about buying a new lamp, pillow, or throw? Don't bring it home unless it will work in at least two rooms.

Add one woven or wicker chair to a room. Spray paint it a great color, and you have both seating and an element of surprise.

An extra large mat is a simple trick for giving a small photo or piece of art big presence.

They've been around forever, but candle sconces are still brilliant for adding ambience without calling an electrician.

For a new take on a bulletin board, wrap twine around a lampshade in a crisscross pattern, then tuck in pictures and paper mementos.
