One Hour, One Day, One Weekend
Shelve It: Easy-to-install Ikea wall shelves are the quickest fix for any space that's short on storage, Boyd says. They're a practical yet decorative touch: Hung high, they emphasize the ceiling's height.
New Light: Boyd replaced Elizabeth's slightly outdated pendant fixture with a more contemporary Ikea Stockholm pendant lamp, hung at the perfect height to cast an intimate glow over the new dining area.
Show It Off: Boyd used the new shelves to spotlight a few of Elizabeth's pieces, like a set of glass canisters and a handsome tray. "The shelves are great for organization, but the display gives the room a bit of texture and personality, too," he says.
