An elegant door

Transform a plain door by using paint and masking tape. This project involves sanding the door to remove the existing finish, painting the door with two coats of primer paint, using painters' tape for the accent panel, and using a roller to paint the remaining surface. You may choose to add a classic door knocker for a more vintage touch. Click here to view the complete guide. (houzz.com)

Wire wall art

Sometimes, we can't avoid having exposed wiring at home -- especially if these are connected to lamps and other appliances. Turn them into instant art by adding wire clips in cute and charming designs. If you don't have wire clips, you may choose to add wall stickers and decals instead. (amazon.com)

A chalkboard refrigerator

We're used to posting notes and bills on the refrigerator with the help of magnets -- how about taking it a notch higher with a ref where you can draw doodles and add grocery and to-do lists? Get the DIY guide here. (buzzfeed.com)
