If your home is in need of some unique flair, take a look at these out-of-the-box ways to decorate:

  • Innovative seating: "Old metal and wood theater chairs that come in rows can make a fun alternative to a bench seat at the dining table," suggests Houzz.com contributor Laura Gaskill. "And because the seats fold up, you could also keep them propped against a blank wall, at the ready for extra guests." The same is true for old seats from a baseball park or football stadium.
  • Original lighting: With a little creativity a DIY skills, you can transform an old gum ball machine into a stylish lamp! Simply use a lamp wiring kit from the hardware store and a store-bought shade. Your kids will get a kick out of his decor.
  • Unique entertainment center: Are you looking for ways to cover your flat-screen TV when you're not using it? Although standard entertainment centers will do the trick, sometimes these items are too bulky. Instead, you can use a large school map as an inventive covering in your living room. This object doubles as wall art, can be found at a local yard sale or thrift shop and likely comes with an inexpensive price tag.
