Sometimes when you're living in temporary housing some things are ugly. Like both of these linoleum floors. Especially when two colors and patterns meet down the middle of a room!
But sometimes there is an easy, free and temporary cure out there! Say, for a boring white wall in the boys' room?
I took two lengths of twine, tied knots at the ends and stuck 'em on the wall with clear thumb tacks. Then I used tiny clothespins to hang up the masterpieces my little artists create. The boys love adding to the display wall, and I love seeing their artwork on the wall.
Sometimes you like an idea so much that you use it again! I used the mini clothespins again to dress up my super-ugly lampshade with cards I've received lately and a few pictures of my kids.
Sometimes having something a little prettier to look at helps disguise the other uglies. Like the lamp base and the bedside table, both of which are begging for makeovers!
Have a great weekend!
