Creativity can be fun and I have seen many housewives and stay-at-home moms turning into great businesswomen through their talent and art. If you either wish to open up your business of handicrafts or you like decorating your house with your own hand-made things, then I have some brilliant ideas to help you with it. In this article, I will show you how to make table runners and kitchen chalkboards at home so let's begin with it.

Wedding Table Runners

Wedding is a special occasion so if there is a wedding coming up in your close relations or if you are getting married, this could be a perfect gift which you or the bride can even use it in future as a regular table runner. A table runner enhances the beauty of your dining table and at the same time also reflects your elegant taste and choice. Following are the instruction to help you make them at home:

Materials you will need: A silk cloth, silk flowers, threads and thin foam.

Instructions: Cut the thin foam in shape of the runner; this will be rectangular and the length depends on the length of your table while the width should be around 8 inches. After the foam is cut, put is aside for a while. Take the silk cloth and cut that with the same measurements as your foam. Then insert the foam into the cover and stitch it from the opened side. Your silk flowers should be stitched at both the ends with neatness and your table runner is ready!

Kitchen chalkboard

Available in craft stores, a pine chalkboard needs only a quick coat of paint and some decorative sponge printing to become an appealing and useful gift or decoration item.

Materials you need: Pine chalkboard; paints on straw and antique green; foam brush;

Southern Home Decorating Tips

Hello Members,
With home styles in the South that range from low country cottages in Beaufort, South Carolina, to elegant plantation homes in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, it might be tempting to decorate all Southern homes in the same way, just to make things more simple. But with each style of home comes an inherent style, whether formal or casual.
Low Country Style: Low country style homes originated in the South and are common around the Charleston area of South Carolina. Low country cottages are just that--white siding covered cottages that often hover on the edge of the marsh

Bedroom decorating help

I just moved into a new apt I'm renting (which means no painting allowed) and the bedroom walls are a dusty pink/mauve color with white trim. The floor is a dark espresso colored wood. what colors would look good in a room like this? all I can think of is the yucky dusty pink and country style from the early nineties. I would prefer something more modern but am not coming up with anything brilliant.
PS. I cross posted this in the Decorating forum but I think it could fit here too since it is about color coordinating

What is your decorating style?

My roomate is moving out and I get to redo our entire 4bedroom flat.
Its pretty dark so I'm thinking of alot of light and bright colors with a contemporary country feel.
What kind of art work do you have hanging on your walls? I was thinking of buying paintings but damn there expensive.
Any ideas of how to make a place seem brighter and more comfortable.
