    Personalize Your Lampshade

    Last updated 10 days ago

    Everyone has lamps, but not everyone takes the time to personalize their lampshades. If you want to add some personality to your décor, you should decorate your lampshades.

    You can use fabric, ribbons, or tape to create an interesting visual effect on the outside of the shade or tackle the project from the inside. With craft paper, you can punch out decorative designs and glue them inside the shade to create an amazing effect when the lamp is one. Check out this video to learn more about the process.

    Whether you want to buy a new lamp to use as is or one that you can decorate, Home Consignment Center has the selection for you. We constantly get new inventory of some of the best furniture and accessories in Austin. To learn more, visit us online or call (925) 309-7231.

    Clothing Storage ideas

    Last updated 13 days ago

    Sometimes a living space does not have adequate closets in which to place your entire wardrobe. If you are short on closet space, you can use creative furniture ideas to get the storage you need inside of your home. Keep reading to figure out new ways to store all of your clothing, shoes, and accessories:

    Utilize Bookshelves and Shelving Units
    Bookshelves and other shelving units are great resources when you are looking for more storage space, but most people might not realize that they can also be used for clothing and shoes. Set up an aesthetically appealing display of your shoes on a bookcase, for example, to add some more visual stimulation to your space. You can even use each shelf as a great space for folded clothing. An extra bookcase or shelving unit can really optimize the amount of storage space in your home.

    Find a Great Armoire
    An armoire is a piece of furniture that can stay with you for your lifetime. Invest in a quality armoire that can serve as a makeshift closet where you can hang dresses, slacks, and other nice clothing. Adding an armoire to your interior design instantly adds class and style that will enhance the rest of your décor choices.

    Take Advantage of Decorative Accessories
    You can use wall hangings as creative storage for jewelry and accessories like scarves. Consider hanging your necklaces from hooks placed inside of an empty picture frame or use a coat rack as a large jewelry tree. Shop through the consignment store to find beautiful, unique pieces that will optimize your interior design and give you plenty of places to store you accessories.

    Creating an Outdoor Summer Party Spot

    Last updated 1 month ago

    The right furniture and accessories help you create the perfect spot for hosting parties this summer. If you are ready to transform your backyard into the ultimate location for entertainment, use the following tips to build yourself the ideal outdoor party spot:

    Decide on Your Table Arrangement

    You can either choose to include one large patio table or a few small ones in your outdoor area to encompass all of your entertaining needs. If you plan to invite a few friends over for drinks in the backyard, one table will probably suffice. If you want to throw huge, lavish parties, however, you might want to find a few smaller tables that you can spread out across the yard. Your patio furniture should be made of materials that can stand up to a variety of weather conditions so you do not have to worry about bringing it inside if it starts to rain.

    Add Some Umbrellas

    Once you find your table setup, buy some umbrellas that can provide shade for you and your guests during your daytime soirees. You can use the umbrellas to add a little bit of color and pattern to the outdoor design. Make sure these pieces are large enough to provide shade for the entire table.

    Personalize the Space with Accessories

    Tie all of your furniture together with accessories that add style and comfort to the space. Throw pillows, place mats, and even outdoor rugs are great additions to your new outdoor party space and they can add some of your personality to the decor. Find accessories that allow you to create your ideal aesthetic so you can optimize the look and the feel of your outdoor space.
