Nicole Fraley, Frayed and Fragile, contributes to Redfin blog with #17 of “22 Unique Ways to Bring Texture into Your Apartment”.
“What’s great about having pottery in an apartment is that it can draw the eyes around a smaller room in unexpected places, and depending on the color, can add dimension by contrasting with the foreground or background,” remarks Frayed and Fragile. “Texture on a candy dish or a vase can add even more interest to a smaller section of your space. Pottery is especially helpful in adding character, a certain mood, or dimension to a space since you are not limited to a wall like a print or painting.”
This project is one of my favorites! It was really easy and if you skip the staining part and you just flip your fan blades over it is a 1 day project!
After living in our first home for over a year I really wanted to start making our house feel like our own. It was about time! So I decided I wanted to do a quick project and update this outdated fan we had in our main living room with some paint and stain I had on hand.
While walking through our home when we first purchased it in 2019 all I saw were those terrible, orange poly-finished doors that desperately needed to either be replaced or repainted.
One of the first things I wanted to change in our home was those dang orange wooden doors. They were screaming at me for help. I could not afford 7 (10 if we count closets!) brand new doors so with the extra time I had during Covid, I decided to go ahead and try painting them and adding trim myself. I am so happy with how they turned out!
Our tiles in our spare bedrooms were a sight for sore eyes when we first moved in. So I thought of a way to do a quick fix without spending that much. My cheap fix includes the following supplies from Amazon:
White caulk I had on hand for the edges
White paint I had from my previous door project for touching up the walls.
A self healing cutting mat
Here is a picture below of the closets before I covered them!
