Do you want to add some color to your home but you're not quite ready to paint your walls? Here are some helpful tips for some affordable and easy ways to add a unique look to your home.
DIY Dye - Rit dye is the bomb! When I was younger, Rit dye was used for old jeans, shoes and of course, tie dye. I'm not sure why I forgot about my beloved Rit dye but recently I decided to update an old faded slipcover couch that had been sitting in our sun room. Since it's cotton, the sun room was not the best place for it, so it will find a new home in our basement. Before dyeing, it looked horrible. After... a whole lotta better, right?
There are a ton of fun ways to use DIY dye in your own home. Just visit The Rit Studio for some other great ideas. Don't be afraid to use your washer (like I was) - it didn't stain at all. Check out these fun pillows - they are actually made with dye and ice, created by mesocrazy.com.
Use your imagination and get creative with it! Have some old sheets laying around? Let's make then ombre! You can use one or a mix of colors to breathe new life into pillows, rugs, curtains, or any other fabric - all for little less than a latte at Starbucks.
Wall Hangings - It doesn't have to be art - anything with texture, color and that is mostly flat can go on your wall. Look out for eclectic rugs or artful quilts at consignment stores or craft shows; macramé is great and not just something that was for the '70s. Discovering unique finds to hang on the wall can add a fun pop of color to your space. Better yet, find a destination workshop clinic to create your one-of-a-kind piece! Places like The Makery or Labmkls will provide a creative getaway and workshop to create your new wall hanging or art.
You can also consider using common things around the house to create a unique look. I have a box full of scrap book paper that I have never used, just taking up space in my closet. A quick and easy solution is to frame or mod podge that paper onto a board and hang it on the blank wall begging to be filled. No artistic skills necessary!
These are just a few fun ways to add some creative color to your space. Of course, there are so many more ideas and I'd love to hear and see what you've done in your own home. As for me, I'll definitely be signing up for a destination workshop soon - maybe I'll see you there!
