When it comes to decorating a home, the smallest elements often make the biggest impact. From the throw tossed over a chair to a candle placed on a nightstand, little details add up to great design. If you’re looking for a new way to spruce up your home without making any major changes, a DIY is just the solution. And what’s better than a DIY that pulls double duty?
