Everyone has taken shortcuts by simply hiding or concealing something about their decor that is not done properly, or not done at all. Examples given are not finishing the skirting board behind furniture because it does not show, hiding carpet stains or outdated floor covering with a rug, and using the Magnolia shade of cream paint to touch up any shade of cream. Also mentioned are using glue for all repair problems, hiding stains or other flaws in a wall with a picture or mirror, or using a plant to hide a problem with a wall.
- Rugs are a great way to hide any flaws that lay underneath them! Why spend tons of money getting your floor cleaned when you can buy an area rug?
- It is normal for things to break overtime, and superglue is a great way to discreetly fix furniture and accessories for a solid hold.
- It is a great idea to utilize huge plants and pots as a way to hide imperfections that may lay beneath table surfaces or the walls behind them.
