Project 1 •
Create a unique window treatment by hanging a pair of classic mini scroll brackets (priced at just $20 each) to flank a window. Insert a dowel rod through the brackets and drape with fabric for a fast and easy window treatment.

Project 2 •
Use a crosshatch square decorative panel made of lightweight urethane (a 27-inch square is priced at $78) to serve as a see-through room divider or “gate” to keep toys, pets and children separated from expensive knick-knacks.

Project 3 •
Add a window crosshead to the wall to serve as a fast and easy shelf. A variety of crossheads are available with prices starting at $55.

Project 4 •
Flank the window-sized opening between two rooms (like a kitchen and family room) with a pair of lightweight urethane shutters. Two-panel shutters, which can be painted or stained, have a price starting at $89 for the pair.

Project 5 •
Add a keystone (starting at just $10 each) to the top of any interior room door to give an elegant look to the entryway.
