Tempaper Denim Blue Feather Flock Removable Peel and Stick Wallpaper
I love wallpaper. It makes the most impressive impact in a room, adding colour, pattern and fun. If you’re afraid of commitment, there are some beautiful removable wallpapers out there, including this denim blue, bird wallpaper from Tempaper. This is a DIY friendly project that’s hard to mess up, since you can re-align the paper until you get it right. Unlike traditional paper, it’s vinyl, so it’s moisture-resistant and easy to clean, making it ideal for a kitchen or bath. Even better is that a small bathroom or a feature wall in a bedroom or living room can be done in less than a weekend. One roll covers 28 square feet. Save 12 percent on this peppy denim colorway.
Says a DIYer, “Awesome! Yes, it’s beautiful… Yes, you can peel it off and do it over 3 times and it will still stick.” Another peel and sticker touts, “Easy to work with, repositionable. Love the print.”

Brushed Brass and Acrylic Knobs – 10 Pack
Have an outdated dresser? An inexpensive vanity that could use some oomph? Kitchen cabinets looking blah? Some new knobs go a long way in creating a new look. These brushed gold drawer knobs from Goldenwarm are made of acrylic and zinc alloy, so they are as durable as they are stunning. Add a coat of paint to that high boy you inherited from your Great Aunt Bea and finish it off with these lucite beauties to add a personal touch. This style blends perfectly with decor from regency glam to mid-century. Larger matching handles are available, so you can presto-chango the look an entire room of furniture in a matter of minutes. These come in sets of five, 10 or 25, so you can add to whatever is screaming for a makeover in the house.
Says to an obsessed customer, “Easy to install and made my IKEA dresser look much more expensive. I love how comfortable they are too.” Says another five star reviewer, “We get so many compliments on these. Worth every penny.”

Bath Bliss Bathroom Accessories – 3 Pieces
No one wants to think about the tools we need to maintain the toilet — and there’s no way anyone to look at an exposed toilet brush and plunger. Especially in the guest bathroom. Bath Bliss accessories save the day. This trio of toilet tricks is just what you need to keep those nasty necessities under wraps. A 5-liter trash can in stainless steel coordinates and hides other personal-care detritus. Everything will look nice and tidy, with germs tucked out of sight and reach in attractive containers.
Says a happy customer, “Adds a very clean look to my bathroom.” This satisfied spouse says, “The wife is very happy. Now she can hide the plunger.”

Cotulin Modern Small Table Lamp
Lighting may be the most important aspect of a room, but often it’s ignored. If you’re still relying on just the overhead, it’s time to vary things a bit. Overhead lighting casts shadows, creating dark corners and sullen-looking faces. Layer lighting to create different looks and moods throughout the day. The Cotulin mod lamp in brass looks smart on a night stand or end table. At just 7 inches wide and 14 inches high it will fit on tiny tables, but it’s still bright enough to provide a nice glow. Plus, it’s 25 percent off.
This maven decor says, “Super cute, super sweet. Perfect for a teen room, a dorm room, or a casual adult room. Perfect for a bedside table, bookcase, or desk. So versatile.”

Ceramic Plant Pot with Wood Stand
If you don’t have any plants in your home, it’s time to get some. Bring the outdoors in and benefit from the oxygen a live plant provides. But don’t stop there. Dress them up with a charming planter, like this stylish ceramic planter on wood stand that looks at home with boho, eclectic or mid-century decor. At 8 inches, it holds an average size plant and adds a design detail everyone will love. Save some green while showing off your green thumb, with the automatic coupon at checkout, saving you ten percent.
This indoor gardener raves, “Exactly what I was looking for! The stand is very sturdy & it’s easy to “assemble”. The pot itself is a nice, heavy, sturdy ceramic that looks very classy. Overall, very satisfied.”

Sleek Socket Ultra-Thin Electrical Outlet Cover with Surge Protector
Does your floor look like a death trap of snakes, just waiting to trip you up? The Sleek Socket is the the solution to the wire clutter from which we all suffer. The plug lays flat against the socket (particularly perfect for when an outlet is behind a dresser or console) and the cord is sent down the wall to a power strip. The Sleek Socket includes an adhesive cord management kit that hold the cord neatly against the wall, making the outlet nearly invisible to guests as well as curious toddlers and pets.
A lover of neat cords says, “Very, very nice. I am a renter so putting a huge hole in the wall to hide my wires was not going to happen. After searching for something that can help with the look of the wires in my living room I am glad to have come across this socket! I love love it. I’m extremely happy with the look and the adhesive works really well. I highly recommend.”
