Updates in a weekend.

Need a quick update? 

Dress up your entry or kitchen nook with bench seat. Pair a DIY upholstered headboard (or buy one from a salvage store and re-cover) with a seat-height bench. Hang the headboard a few inches above the bench top so it's easy to toss on a comfortable cushion. Use anchor bolts to secure the headboard to the wall.

Create wall art and a memo center in one.  Hang cork inside a store-bought frame (or make your own). Apply a decal over the surface. Instant art and a place to neatly display children's art, memos and more.

Add storage.  Hang some attractive shelves, fill with dishes, glasses and some baskets to hide items, and voila, instant ambiance at a reasonable cost.

Add drama to a wall with pre-made panels.  You can paint a new color - or -not, The architectural will be gorgeous. Have more time? Apply molding in large shapes, paint the interior or add wallpaper for a fabulous new look.
