    Good To KnowThe mat is durable enough for indoor and outdoor use.

    You could make an additional project as a welcome mat for

    your homes entryway. 2 Using your computer, create a large letter for a template, and print it out. We used a 700-point type size to create the B shown here. Use utility scissors to trim out the letter, and center it on the piece of shelf liner. Trace the letter onto the liner using a permanent marker; remove the template.

    1Measure and cut a 32-inch-long piece of nonadhesive shelf liner. Fold the piece in half, and then cut it down the center to make two 16- x 24-inch rectangles. Stack the pieces on top of each other. (When gluing the stones, the adhesive will seep through the top piece of shelf liner.)

    3 arrange black stones to fill the traced letter. Experiment with various sizes to avoid large gaps. Use a caulk gun and a generous amount of clear silicone sealant to secure the stones to the shelf liner.

    4 Fill the remaining portions of the mat with the white stones and small pea gravel. Work with small sections at a time because the sealant sets in about 10 minutes. Let the sealant cure overnight. Turn over the mat, and trim away any exposed edges of shelf liner.

    Youve got the keys. Now get the tools you need to hang

    artwork, assemble furniture, tackle

    minor repairs, and make the house

    your own.

    HGTVs Genevieve Gorder sh

    ares her design tips

    on how you can create a personali

    zed space.

    what inspires you? Everything is inspiring

    , from a napkin to

    a vacation. Its about finding beauty in the ordinary a

    nd putting

    yourself in extraordinary situations to see life from a

    new angle.

    How would you describe your d

    esign style? Soulful, playful,

    eclectic. I need to be everchanging and evolving with me

    diums

    and palettes to keep the designs fresh.

    How would you suggest homeo

    wners determine their style?

    Its really about interviewing yourself. Look at the colo

    rs and patterns you

    gravitate toward in clothing. Pull these out in your h

    ome dcor, and then

    complement them. (Side note: No one dresses all in be

    ige!) Where do you enjoy

    traveling? What does it look like, and what are the t

    extures? What kind of

    architecture appeals to you? These answers will lead y

    ou to the styles you love.

    what advice can you give to ho

    meowners who find decorating

    their home a

    daunting task? Turn off your mind for a moment and

    let the emotional (yes,

    your heart) guide you for a bit. Think about what ma

    kes you happy, visually

    and emotionally, then sketch, pull from magazines, an

    d create a mood board

    to fall back on throughout the process. Most of all, r

    elax. A room that you

    enjoy putting together will evoke that joy in the end.

    what is one way everyday hom

    eowners can make a big impact

    in a drab space

    without putting a huge hole in t

    heir wallets? The accessories usually make the

    biggest impression. Fortunately, this can also be one

    of the most affordable steps.

    From books to small sculpture, wall dcor, throws an

    d accent pillows, floral and

    other displays, accessories are the power players of co

    lor, form, and pattern. You

    can afford to play in this category; be as trendy as y

    ou desire, as bold as you dare.

    1. Use a handsaw to cut a 2 x 4 x 6 deck railing to your desired length; ours is 19 inches long. (The railing piece comes with precut grooves.) Sand the cut edges smooth. 2. Apply primer (#164759) and paint on all sides; allow each coat to dry. We used Valspar Signature Colors, Creative Ideas for Color, Wild Grape CI 212, semi-gloss. 3. Position the railing with the flat side down. Place glass containers filled with flowers or candle votives in the grooves.

    busy as a bee? this chrome hook can help keep you organized.

    1. Roll a length of bubble wrap (#274909) until you reach your desired bolster diameter. Secure the roll with masking tape (#236989). Use scissors to trim the length for a shorter bolster; for a longer bolster, place two rolls side by side.2. Use a flexible tape measure to check the length and circumference of the roll. Add 6 inches to the circumference and 16 inches to the length to determine the fabric size needed. 3. Use scissors to cut an 84-inch drapery panel (allen + roth, #18337) to fit the roll
