Like using maps to wallpaper an unsightly item (like the pole above) or just to cover a section of the wall (below). The maps looked like they were tinted pale blue, too. A wash of blue watercolor over a map is a nice way to bring uniformity to a bunch of different maps.
Then there is this pole below which is just wrapped with black tape. Diagonals add interest but the 3 little photos are my favorite part. It just makes it look like the pole was considered and thought of just like any other element in the room.
Are you a fan of wall decor like this shelving unit but never know what to display? This one just has rocks painted with graphic shapes and stripes. A fun project for kids, not to mention super cheap decor!
And then there is this simple idea – find some branches outside, spray them gold and bring them in. Lean them agains a wall or stick them in a vase. So pretty! I'm definitely going to do that this winter.
