It always bothers me when I hear about “real” decorators telling people what should and shouldn’t be used to decorate and what is and isn’t right for a room. Shouldn’t you feel comfortable and happy when you walk into your room? And what better way to do that than by surrounding yourself with the things you love. Here are 5 do-it-yourself projects that combine passions with decorating.

Go to your local wine store and ask for some of the left over wooden crates. Sometimes they’ll give them to you or charge a small amount. And then you have ready made modular storage with some character. And let’s face it, they’re quite a few steps up from milk crates.


5One More for the Travelers
Use Steamer Trunk as Kitchen BuffetWhen the suitcase aren’t enough nothing echoes old time travel like a vintage steamer trunk or two. Great for storage but also do well as an end table or kitchen buffet and they always add a lot of character to the room.
