HIP TIPZ #131
Tired of your lamps? You may not need to buy new. Try replacing the lampshades. Sometimes that'll do.
HIP TIPZ #132
Selling your home? Be sure to look at the hardware on your front door. If it's pitted and worn, replace it. Make the first impression a good one!
HIP TIPZ #133
Is your brass chandelier dated? Add black mini-shades for a chic, updated look.
Remember: the shades will conduct more heat, so it's VERY IMPORTANT to make sure that the plastic cylindrical tubing below each bulb (the tubing that hides the wires) is cut down low enough that it isn't too close to the bulb. If in doubt, don't do it.
HIP TIPZ #134
Decorative lacquer boxes look great on a bookcase and also serve as an extra storage spot for special, tiny trinkets.
HIP TIPZ #135
Repurpose your old bi-fold doors by covering them with leftover wallpaper from your decorating project. They make a great room divider and since it's the same as the paper on your wall, it ties everything together. Best part: you're making use of existing items. A green idea!
