Save your old mailbox, even if it has a bit of rust. Designer Janna Allbritton reused a discarded mailbox and crate to fill out a mantel and to display dried flowers, a Bible and a small succulent in a pot. "Use the unexpected to create levels and keep the eye moving for a great eye-catching vignette. Old books, a chippy step-stool, an antique box, or a child's chair are great items to start with ... this will give you a great framework from which to build," she says.
Moroccan tile transforms an everyday staircase into a beautiful, bohemian display. At the top of the stairs, a woven wall hanging accentuates the well-traveled look and adds a dose of texture to the room.
White, Open Plan Kitchen From Sarah Sees Potential
As seen on season 1 of Sarah Sees Potential, Sarah turned a cramped main floor into a gorgeous, open plan kitchen, dining and living space. A dividing wall was removed and converted to a gourmet kitchen island with extra seating and storage. Antique white corbels and vintage wedding cake fixtures add a touch of elegance while a fun mosaic tile backsplash lends youthful charm to the bright space.
