Your office or home room looks impersonal and dull? With a few right touches you can make it your own room, where your personality and presence is felt everywhere. If you wonder what to start with, here is an easy and inexpensive way to personalize your home decor furnishing.
You can customize any area of your home or office with a handcrafted Shadow Box, customized to the style of your room. There are so many wonderful possibilities that an aspiring entrepreneur could bring in some extra money displaying their talents in these home decor furnishing accents.
Pick your Size
A quick trip to the home decor furnishing section of you local craft and hobby shop will introduce you to the empty shadow box. If you are not familiar with this craft item, you will be amazed by the myriad of sizes. While the selection can even be overwhelming, focus on the right shadow box to meet your needs. Smaller boxes usually work best in bathrooms, or on the desk in your office. Keep scale in mind as you are shopping and buy a bigger size for bigger spaces.
Find your Style
If you are a golfer or you know a golfer who would appreciate a unique piece of home decor furnishing, this is a great theme for a shadow box. By using old driver covers, a piece of indoor-outdoor green carpet, some sand and a ball you can create a wonderful accent for the living room or office.
Home decor furnishing in your kitchen can come alive with some dried or silk flowers and fruits adding a bountiful harvest feel around your table. Smaller versions of the same theme will make attractive accents for your powder room.
Animal lovers will enjoy pet-themed shadow boxes as a great piece of home decor furnishing. Dog bones and paw prints, or an arrangement of some of your cat’s favorite toys are a whimsical way to let people know you cherish the four legged members of your family.
You can turn your bedroom into a Hawaiian paradise by using some sand, a lei and a miniature palm tree. You can even pay homage to your favorite sports teams with miniature footballs, basketballs or miniature baseball bats found at your local craft store.
