3 Favorite Details You Can Do Yourself

Sunday, September 9, 2012

I love how the simplest details can have such a profound impact in design.  And the good news is there are some easy details you can add to ready-made pieces yourself to get a custom look!  Have you tried any of these?

1.  Adding new hardware to a piece of furniture (or your cabinets)

I love the shape of the pulls above and the added detail of the gold rim on the inside of the cabinet trim.  

2.  Painting or wallpapering the backs of bookcases.

Did you see Danika's marble paper bookcases  over at Gorgeous Shiny Things? If you love marbelized paper (and I do), you'll want to head over there and check it out.

That is such a lovely shade of blue, and did you notice the brass book lighting above?  Another great detail that's easy to do yourself.

3.  Okay, everyone should do this one.  Adding some trim to ready-made curtains.  There are so many amazing choices out there!

Look what the Greek Key trim does to simple linen curtains.  There are no sewing skills required, as you can adhere it with fabric glue.

On the far right side of the image above, I love the two different trims applied to the edge of these curtains.  That pleated ruffle trim is available here in loads of colors. 

More decorative trim added to simple curtains, this time in a sophisticated black & white.

Easy!  Impactful!  Do you have any favorite DIY details to add to my list?
