1. Add a Bright New Headboard

Add style, color and texture to your bedroom with this do-it-yourself headboard that looks anything but DIY. A great project for newbie woodworkers, this headboard can be completed in just a few hours and for less than $100.

2. Create Summer Shimmer

Give an occasional chair a modern makeover by mixing metallic silver with pops of icy lemon. Find a chair with interesting lines at a flea market or thrift store. Remove the seat and spray the chair with several coats of platinum paint. Recover the cushion with a lattice print in gray and yellow. Keep the mood soothing and relaxed with toss pillows and a soft rug in the same palette.

3. All About Ombre

Gradual-hued ombre is everywhere, from hairstyles to napkins to dressers. Get a small dose of the trend by painting a mini jewelry chest from lazuli blue to sage. Bronze accessories and towels in terra cotta to round out this sun-warmed, Mediterranean-inspired bath.

4. Create a Custom Upholstered Headboard

Recreate HGTV Green Home’s master bedroom headboard in your home. To create this easy-to-build headboard, wrap natural linen and batting around squares of plywood.

5. Set the Scene

Details like flowers on the table, lights in the trees and smartly placed trays for drinks and appetizers elevate a simple gathering to a party your guests won’t forget. Billowing drapes hung out the back door as guests enter the backyard create an impressive entrance.
