Transform a room using an Amish end table

by Tom Grimes

Sometimes, a homeowner may ache for a change. Reinventing a room might seem like a laborious task, but that's not necessarily the case. With a few creative flourishes, an area can be completely but easily transformed.

A good initial step in this process can be clearing the clutter from an entryway. HouseBeautiful.com recommends using colorful hooks to bring some flair to the room and prevent further build-up of items that would otherwise end up on the floor.

Painting a ceiling a pale blue or gray can give a room a new dimension, because a color change may completely reorient the way that the space is perceived. Mirrors can also have this effect by reflecting light.

Bookshelves are a good backdrop on far walls and the news source suggests stacking novels both vertically and horizontally. Wooden shelves can also convey a sense of a warm, natural setting.

For a touch of the outside world, try putting a flowerpot in the room by a window. Amish end tables are well-suited to hosting plants, because their soft, hand-carved wooden design can complement any type of flower.

The unparalleled craftsmanship of Amish furniture can bring a very subtle change to a room that will impress visitors and play off the other aspects of the space beautifully. ADNFCR-3308-ID-19923411-ADNFCR
