I don’t know about you, but this is the time of year I start thinking about sprucing (no pun intended) up the guest room, finding that special gift for someone dear to me, decorating for a festive feel, etc. I’m not looking for big fixes or big splurges; just little “extras”.
Being that Casart’s unique quality of re-usability is special, I tend to look for ideas that practice the same. What about that side table in the guest room that came from your single days and you treasure it because it was one of the first things you bought with your own money. Give it a fresh coat of paint, cover the drawers with Casart scraps (will be a cinch to change without any damage to the finish), and change the hardware.
Do you look at your stairs and see scuff marks on the risers? Consider applying Casart Della Robbia risers for a festive look.
At $15 each, that won’t break the bank. If you have a lot of risers and you think it will be overpowering, apply to every other riser.
Speaking of stairs-if you have a blank wall along them, consider a series of framed wallcovering patterns in similar frames.
And for a very special gift for a very special someone (who probably has everything and doesn’t need a thing), try a Memory Box.
Cover a box with Casart. The box illustrated was made long before Casart existed, but the task would have been simpler if it had! Print a list of special memories you have of that person, cut into strips, scrunch up and place in the box. The recipient can read a memory a day and think of you long after the gift has been given. And memories can be re-read.
Well, that’s some of the suggestions I have. What are yours?
