Geometric Walls

Create a custom, artistic feature wall even if you have no painting skill or talent. Really! Just apply painters tape in geometric shapes on your wall, and paint the shapes with three colors: one bright and two neutrals. Remove the tape and you’ve got a masterpiece!

Wood Fireplace Insert

If your fireplace doesn’t work, or if you just want an elegant screen to use when you don’t have a fire going, create a wood insert to add some visual interest. Just glue small rounds of birch logs onto an insert to fit your fireplace. How easy!
