 Kick that cabinet up a notch with color paint, wallpaper or fabric!

This reader used old dictionary pages as Unique Wall Art!

Have oddly places windows? Emi, Ashley and Amanda from Alabama suggest curtaining all the walls and giving you a more blank canvas for placing furniture.... Even hanging art in front of those curtains just the way you would if it were a wall.

This House Beautiful reader in Canada added some Rock 'N Roll to this room adding some artwork and painting the bed a bright red.

 Barn Doors! These are popping up everywhere. In this case, they have been installed on sliding rails and used as a room divider.

Display your collection. I love that accent table too.

 Include a statement piece. Updated something that you already have or shop around for a new eye catching item.

Decoupage an old piece to give it new life! Gloria from Virginia suggested using old book pages for this makeover.

Throw some Lacquer around! The chalkboard wall is an easy do too.

 I can personally vouch for this makeover idea of just adding new, colorful pillows to your sofa (or bed). I got new Euro pillows for my bed after Christmas and it made me feel like I had a whole new bed and livened it up A LOT!

Great tips! I also agree that adding some fun, colorful throw pillows to your sofa is an easy way to give your room a makeover. I'm also a fan of changing my duvet cover to give my bed a fresh look. I'm currently obsessing over this duvet set!

I really like the blackboard wall. I can think of a few walls to do that to in my house. It would be so fun for the kids.
