Patterned Dresser

Got a plain dresser? Give it some flair! Add a splash of paint, and stick some fun wallpaper to the front drawers. You can even add some fun drawer pulls, too. World Market is a great place to look for those.

Kitchen Labels

Create adorable labels for your kitchen storage canisters. This trend is all the rage, and a great way to keep you from pouring a spoonful of salt into your coffee instead of sugar. You can simply get some chalkboard sticker labels and handwrite labels in chalk.
