Before you throw out that old dresser, create roll-away under-bed storage drawers. Love this idea from Better Homes and Gardens. Would be a great shoe storage idea. (wow great idea) Also repurpose the dresser for craft storage.
For the spare room DIY tapestry headboard. This would be a cool way to dress up your college dorm room very easily.
Love the idea of pinch pleat drapes in a retro-tastic fabric hung at the ceiling in the living room. What a statement!
