She Buys Brackets For Her Home, But The Way She Uses Them Is Really Unexpected


1. Room “Street” Signs

Beautify your home and you’ll beautify your soul. Many architects and industrial designers implement the art of feng shui when designing a building. This Chinese philosophical system is all about harmonizing everyone with their surrounding environment. Whether you live in a two-story house or a tiny apartment, maximizing your space is key. Everything has a place, and that place should rarely be the floor.

Brackets serve a very simple purpose: to hold things up. Usually implemented in wall shelves, these little triangular bits of wood and iron can actually be used to do a lot more. You should always think twice before you throw out any old furniture or fixtures; odds are, the decor warriors of the internet have already found a plethora of ways to repurpose any “junk” you have. Add a charming accent to your hallways, create new and useful storage above your door frames, make a useless boomerang that doesn’t boomerang – the possibilities are endless.

If you have some spare brackets lying around, check out these clever ways to add a touch of flair to your home.
