To add a touch of high design, simple ready-made bifold closet doors were given an update with fabric and batting. For a not-too-overwhelming pattern, a transitional geometric with shades of charcoal, beige and brown was used.
To dress up the bland, contractor-grade doors, the fronts and backs are wrapped with batting and cranberry-toned faux ostrich vinyl. The finishing touch is the paneled effect created with antique brass nail heads.
The metallic headboards in the guest bedroom of the HGTV Design Star cast house are custom-made from pattern-printed hides, batting and blocks of wood. A rattan serving tray is prepped for an afternoon in bed with a book and cup of tea.
Upholstered headboards are a fabulous way to add texture and depth to a bedroom. Designer Emily Henderson encourages readers to try this easy, do-it-yourself project. "The headboard is made simply by wrapping batting and then fabric around a large inexpensive piece of plywood and using a staple gun to attach it," says Henderson.
Space planning played a big role in the success of the remodeled attic. To put an eight-foot-wide area of dead space to good use, it was transformed into a felt activity wall. In order to make this, batting was cut to size, then attached with spray adhesive before being covered by white felt secured to the wall with hot glue. Colored felt was then cut to size with scissors to create an assortment of objects, characters and landscapes.
Step up your gifting game with this sweet jar topped with a silver ballerina and snowflake jewels by Hostess with the Mostess. To make this darling jar, spray paint a small plastic ballerina silver (a cake topper works perfectly!). Paint her dress with glue, and then sprinkle with a fine craft glitter in your favorite hue. Use hot glue to attach both parts of the jar lid. Next, glue on your ballerina and add a bit of quilt batting for the snow. Embellish your jar with stickers and a tag for an even cuter look!
