Got a few bucks and a few minutes this weekend? Pick up a couple of sets of IKEA's HEAT Trivet. A simple circular cork board, it's not what it is, it's what it could be, as evidenced by these simple, affordable and fast DIY projects that could transform a wall and add a little function to a space, too. At only $2.99 for a set of three, you can grab as many as you might need to brighten up your space.
