Whatever your level of expertise, Elaine Griffin, author of Design Rules: The Insider's Guide to Becoming Your Own Decorator, has ideas for transforming any space.
1. Stretch Your SnapshotsFor a piece of art worthy of your wall, snap a pic with the smartphone app Instagram. Then use Instacanvas, a service that prints your photo on stretched canvas and delivers it to your door.
2. Wall Paper Your FurnitureA vibrant pattern, from sites like DesignYourWall.com, can breathe new life into an aging cabinet or plain end table.
3. Stencil a WallPainting a pattern requires patience, but the result can change the whole room. Consider Cutting Edge Stencils for all-in-one shopping.
