2. Frame a favorite tea towel for display in the kitchen.

3. Make the rooms off the hallway appear larger by painting them a lighter shade than the hallway.

4. Vintage door panels make an interesting headboard when painted.

5. Make a sloped ceiling appear taller by installing a shelf underneath at height of lowest point of slope.
