    Promising review: "These were the first shelves I've ever put up, and a year later, I still love them. They're actually surprisingly sturdy and I never think twice about loading them up with however much I can fit (they never show any sign of strain or move at all). They are pretty small, so check the dimensions, but they are absolutely perfect for displaying photos, art, plants, etc. I've moved them around to three different walls in the past year, and I'm constantly switching out the displayed items yet they show almost no wear or tear." —zebrye

    Get a set of three from Amazon for $31.85+ (available in three colors).

    3. A set of magnetic decorative garage accents to instantly up the curb appeal of your house. No need to spend lots of money on a brand-new garage door — just stick these on where you want them, step back, and bask in the glory of feeling like you're a host of an HGTV design show.

    4. A table that's slim enough to fit even in narrow entryways or hallways. It's also a great way to add some extra storage or place some of your favorite decor pieces right behind your couch.
