I love making my own decor. A piece of beautiful material stretched onto a vintage frame makes a great wall hanging. I recently bought some mini unfinished wood curio shelves at the dollar store, 'stained' them with watercolor paints and filled them with miniatures in kitchen and bathroom themes for those little spaces that get no attention. You can see pictures of these in the hub I wrote about this same subject (http://casmerchant.hubpages.com/hub/3-Simple-ways-... They came out great and no-one has any idea it was all cheap materials I used.
