Curtained Bookshelves - Cover bookcases with curtains that match or complement your window treatments. Place the shelves side by side, or use a floor-length mirror to separate them and give the illusion that the room expands past the shelves.
Beautiful lamp shades - paint doilies (or leave them natural), cover in wallpaper paste and stick to a balloon. Wait for the dollies to dry (preferably overnight), pop the balloon. Et voila! Its a bowl.a lampshade.you decide.
