Home decor that creatively reflects your personality makes any space look instantly chic. Unfortunately, constraints on time and budget often mean our rooms stay sparse and our walls bare. You can give your home a hip new feel by adding even one unique item. We found three inexpensive and easy projects from Jeannée Ledoux's Abode à la Mode that you can complete in an afternoon. Experiment with color, fabric and size to make each one truly your own.
Have you seen the outrageous price tags on ottomans? They cost nearly as much as the chairs they accompany. This homemade version has humble bones, but you can splurge on fabric to make the outcome look high-end. I recommend staples to assemble the fabric and trim for all you non-sewers out there, but machine stitches make this project more durable.
