Tag Sale Transformations

Martha Stewart Living Television

Here are three easy ways to transform tag-sale finds into decorative pieces for your home.

Dressing the Mantle
Part of the fun of having a mantle for a headboard is dressing the top. On top of a mantle headboard, put decorative things, such as books, small vases, or jewelry boxes. Stay away from hanging large pictures and mirrors, which feel more like they belong over a living room mantle. Just keep in mind that you don't want anything too tall or heavy, just in case it falls onto the bed.

Decorative Picture Hangers
Choose a button with a flat black. Using epoxy, glue a button cover to the back of the button. The back opening of the button cover, designed to slide over a plain button, fits as easily over a screw. The picture is actually hung on another nail from a wire on the back of the picture frame. Thread a decorative ribbon through the eye hooks on the back of the frame and tie it in a bow. Rest the bow on a nail or screw hung several inches above the picture. Slide the button cover (and button) into place; snap closed.

Glass Hurricanes
Decorate a bedside table or a dresser with votive candles set on saucers and covered with glass hurricanes. Place a piece of wax on the bottom rim of the glass to secure the hurricane to the saucer.
