Floating shelves look fragile to the naked eye because of the way they sit on the wall. All the workings of the brackets are hidden so it seems as though they are floating there on the wall. In reality they are usually much stronger than other types of shelves which are supported with traditional brackets and screws.
A beautiful piece of driftwood can also be sued to make a peg or stand. Simply attach it to the wall using hooks or nails and leave it as such or add some rope like in this case. You’ll be able to make a beautiful and ingenious decoration for any room of the house, including the bathroom. The rope will serve as a support system for shelves or, in this case, decorative panels with all sorts of messages written on them.
Speaking in terms of home furnishings, lighting is absolutely key. The wrong sort of lighting can throw off the look for an entire room. The different types of floor lamps should be explored in order to perfectly accentuate the colors and accents within the room of a home. More modern rooms will call for cleaner, brighter lighting, while amber tints and softer glows are popular in rustic themed rooms.
This is a particularly beautiful decoration because the contrast between the driftwood piece and the delicate pendants and necklaces is quite strong and visible. To make such a piece you’ll need a piece of driftwood or a fallen tree branch, some wool or string, a hammer, nails, a ruler, a pencil and a drill. Insert the nails. They will serve as hooks. Drill a hole into the wall and insert a nail to hang the decoration from. Attach the string and you’re done.
Ceiling light fixtures are great for starters, but when it comes to setting a specific ambiance, they do not quite do the trick. They leave unwanted dark corners and unflattering shades on decorations. Table fixtures with shades are still popular, but overall, they are quite impractical. A floor lamp is easier to clean, has a better throw of light, and casts the most flattering shadows for the room.
Turn the fireplace mantel into a focal point using color. You can hang different-colored stocking or you can display an array of floral ornaments, also featuring a rainbow of colors. You can even borrow a few ornaments from your Christmas tree and display them on the mantel in a creative way. You can use candles to decorate the mantel and make it glow. Use candles of different shapes and sizes and votives and arrange them as you find it fit.
Another thing you can make using driftwood is a cloth hanger. It’s a practical item and it will also have a unique look. For this project you’ll need some dry tree branches or pieces of driftwood, wire cutters, pliers, a saw, a drill and glue. Start by peeling off the bark from the branches so that your cloths won’t get dirty. Then drill a hole in the middle of the branch and attach the hook using strong glue. Let it dry and your hanger is ready.
Home interior decorating covers many aspects of the tasks. A lot depends on how much time you have to spare and what your budget is - whether you just want to spruce up a room or give it a whole new look. It is surprising for instance what new bath mats and towels do for a bathroom. Try sprucing up your room with some new cushions and perhaps a mirror or two. Move the furniture around and add feature wall paper on one wall - make sure that it tones in with the existing color scheme and you will be surprised how much style this can give to a room.
