Domino has put together a slide-show of 31 cheap and creative decorating tips. Some are easier than others, but all are inspirational. Two ideas that really appealed to me....
Lavanya put a softboard up inside the chimney of her non-working fireplace. She then wrapped wire around toothpicks that she slipped under the softboard. From the wires, she hung glass balls into which she placed tea lights. Lovely effect!
Sandie wanted to hide her window air conditioner, complete with interior safety bars. Her solution was to install a tension rod above air conditioner and hang from it a piece of Tord Boontje's Until Dawn curtain. Very clever! (But cheap?!)
