Are you ever shopping online for that perfectly saccharine, pastel, animal-themed, or just plain sweet art for your walls and end up in the whimsical nursery decor section? Yeah, yeah, these prints are mostly for kid’s rooms, but who says you can’t rock that pastel unicorn, dapper sloth, and sparkly constellation illo on your own adult walls? YOU DO YOU. And I’m going to do me by snagging that bespectacled tabby who is clearly my patronus.
On to stealing art from the children (or putting it on the kids’ walls, too!)…
Wallpaper is making a comeback big time, wall decals are hot, but my favorite way to make a surface my own is with stencils. You can use any paint color combinations you want, layer stencils on top of other stencils, and have total control over the placement of the imagery. Win! Have you investigated the sheer amount of wall stencils you can nab online? Use ’em on the walls, on the floor (for a faux tile look or in place of a carpet!), or on a big piece of wood or canvas as artwork.

Love to decorate your walls but your landlord won’t allow you to paint them? I found that artist’s chalks work great for temporary chalk art! I accented an arched kitchen doorway with a chalk vine.

Need a little last-minute Christmas cheer? Take some inspiration from Homie Tiffany Steinke, who uploaded her “impromptu Christmas tree” to our Flickr pool, make a tree out of a string of lights!
I live in a small, cute, mobile home in the country. The main problem concerning my home is the horrible interior walls. The trim screams “these walls are stapled together” and the wallpaper is bold in a way I can’t appreciate for the next numerous years. What can I do to cover press board paisleys and fix the tacky trim?
Remember the “Texas redneck hippie” home tour a couple weeks ago? I know you saw their adorable pup, and the Halloween Christmas tree, but did you noticed Kaci and Dustin’s great idea for change-able wall art?
We recently moved and had to ditch the old cat tree after two years of love and abuse. It plain fell apart in the process of moving so we started the hunt for a new tree. We wanted something sturdy, affordable, and something that wouldn’t take up too much room. Problem was, the cat trees you typically find on the market are made out of cheap plastic and particle or composite board. After some research, we decided to use the wallspace to the side and above our couch to create a wall mounted cat tree using a mixture of shelves and including a scratching post.
