Do It Yourself Home and Decor

Are you a "do-it-yourself" kind of person? If so, you may be able to improve your own home and décor. It is not really that hard to get some improved accents in your interior design. Perhaps all you need is some guidance. Here are some suggestions for meaningful visuals displays you can establish in your own home.


Polaroids may be from a time long past, but people still love them! This is because Polaroids have a great charm. Even the young kids these days who are into high tech items, still think Polaroids are fun once they are introduced to them. Polaroids can be displayed on the wall or in other artistic ways.

Frame Special Letters

Almost everyone has a special letter that has been written for them in the past. These letters, if they are not too embarrassing or personal, can be framed and hung. They make marvelous keepsakes. The glass of the frame helps preserve the letter as well. It is a nice idea to put special letters behind glass, true, but it is just as important to find a really nice frame that goes with the tone of the letter.

Do You Still Like How Polaroid Photos Look?

  • Yes, I do. They are cool and classic.
  • No, I don't. They look horribly dated and they fade.

Display Necklaces

Most women have a wide variety of necklaces. Many of these are costume jewelry, yet are appropriate for daily use or certain fancy occasions. Most ladies have necklaces in a wide variety of colors, sizes and shapes. Realize that these can be very decorative. Why not display these out in some attractive manner? They don't look very nice all jumbled up in the drawer. Many ladies have displayed these by stringing them over statues to keep them organized and displayed.


In Medieval times it was important for walls to have ornate tapestries. These were a sign of wealth and abundance. Today the same effect holds true. If you can find gorgeous tapestries or wall hangings, by all means acquire them. Even if it is just a plainer textile, if the color is rich and the price is right, then it is well worth it to buy it. There is so much to be done with fine fabrics.

These are some of the many details that you really can do yourself. Surely you can organize old Polaroids and special letters. Try to find gorgeous tapestries online or at thrift stores. Do you now realize that you can do some elements of home and décor for yourself?
