While apartments may be limited on space, there is no shortage of ideas out there for how to update your pad. Here are a few tips to get you started this weekend:
1. Capitalize on unused cupboard space
For a charming and unexpected touch, hang jars on the underside of a shelf. Fill the jar with spices, paper clips or whatever strikes your fancy. The storage space you gain is almost like having an extra shelf! Get more details here.
2. Hang a no-sew stocking
Making chic stockings for your mantle should not be an arduous process. With little more than fabric scraps, twine, scissors, and a hot-glue gun, you will be well on your way to a perfectly decorated home. For the how-to guide, look here.
3. Build a bench from three old chairs
