Dressing up the Drab

All of us have a creative bone in there somewhere, but for some of us it's just a little harder to find. However, here is a little creative tip ANYONE can do to dress up whatever is drab in your home!

Have a blah-looking set of lamps? A less than eye-catching set of valances? Or do you need a cute napkin ring that matches but don't want to spend a fortune? Here is your all-in-one solution...Ribbon! That's right! Everyone can afford a little ribbon, and that's all it takes to make your ordinary lamps dazzle; your valances *POP*; and your table look well-dressed and classy. Just go to your favorite craft store (even Walmart has a decent selection) and grab the ribbon that will revolutionize your decor without breaking the bank! Still skeptical? I thought you might, here are some pictures of what I have done in my own home.

Now go dress up what's drab in YOUR home!!
