It's All in the Details: DIY Touches to Complete a Room

It's All in the Details: DIY Touches to Complete a Room

Have you ever heard the Charles Eames quote, "The details are not the details….they make the product?" The same can be said for rooms, where a simple choice makes a space infinitely more interesting and personal. Take Meredith Carmichael's dressed up bedroom door (photographed by Our Style Stories), made using scraps of leather and nail heads. It's unique and memorable.

Here are four more little projects with a big impact. 

Poppytalk showed how to add another layer to a reclaimed bench, by way of photo transfer.

Pam of Simple Details was inspired by this photo (from Bravo TV) to try her own black lacquer shade. 

House and Home writer Margot Austin has nautical rope installed as a handrail in the backstairs of her Ontario home. (The dog doesn't hurt either.)

I like how Shannon of Madigan Made created a green resin table to suit her space.

What's the best thing you ever made that "made" a room in your house?
