It will make the weaving pattern and color stand out. You can make the frame from used photo frame, replacing its background with flannel cloth. Attach the mitten with glue in the center position of the frame. Allow to dry for one night. Hang this decoration in the mud room. Source

9. Chair Bed Table

This green project helps you to recycle broken chair. The part that usually breaks is the seating mattress. Instead of fixing it, you could still use this as a bedside table. First, remove the rickety seating mattress. To cover the hole, use tray or any flat wood. Plastic or iron is preferable, considering the easy cleaning. Place things like glass of water, alarm clock, reading lamp, or books on the tray. It would be great if you could balance the tone of the bedroom and the chair. For safe option, go with white.

10. Natural Color

Shout out “nature” with the decorations. Choose greenish color for lifting the mood: green rug, runner, plate, vase, and plants. You could go further by accentuating the color: dark green for the rug, then the color goes a tone brighter up to the plants. The decorations should not always call for solid tone. You could also pick patterned decorations, as long as the base color is green. Feel the instant blossom in your room. This trick plays well for a dull room, wall painted with beige or coffee tone.
