1. Designer Peter Dunham paneled this bedroom in birch plywood squares, which you can buy at Home Depot or your local lumber store for about $45 a sheet.
2. Shawn Henderson recommends Plasti Dip rubber coating as a substitute for those sticky felt floor protectors. I'd love to see a fun DIY using this!
3. If you like the nautical look, use boat cleats as drawer pulls, like designer T. Keller Donovan. The one pictured is $12.
4. Neal Beckstedt used a yellow Sears Craftsman tool chest as a kitchen worktable in a bachelor pad. It's a great colorful, industrial look for a loft space, a home office or a kid's room. This 6-drawer example is $560.
