    • Striking a Valance

      Give your bedroom a stainless-steel makeover by adhering peel-and-stick film to foam-core board. Then attach the piece to a wide-pocket curtain rod using hook-and-loop tape or glue. Find the film at home centers. Reassign an aluminum platform ladder as a footnote at the end of your bed.

    • Light Bright

      Forge ahead with a bright and shiny look for your bedroom using small doses of not-so-heavy metal. A fresh coat of spray paint in a shimmery finish wakes up a tired lamp. A smooth surface and simple shape reflect metallic paints best. Weave satiny ribbon in solid gold around its shade, securing with pins or glue.

    • Pour on the Shine

      Trim drapes with a chain line is just one highlight of this chic hideaway bar. To create a bar in most any niche or nook without building walls, install a freestanding kitchen cabinet, add open shelves to house serving pieces, then hang drapes to soften and cordon off the space.

    • Shine On

      A backsplash pieced together from peel-and-stick stainless-steel tiles creates a shiny, beautiful bar.

    • Reflective Nature

      When adding metallics to a room, use restraint or you'll end up with a discotheque effect. Include a few unexpected doses to relax and update a traditional or staid space. In this entry, humble exterior barn light fixtures made of galvanized metal offset the discreet metallic sheen of the flirty floral wallpaper.

    • Hardware Helper

      Revamp an antique dresser in an electric blue latex paint with a subtle, light-catching shimmer that resembles a car-paint finish.

      Roam home centers and farm supply stores for galvanized items to repurpose. Here, a zinc gate hinge becomes a holder for mail.

    • Artistic Alloy

      Metal makes a modern statement in this living room. Metal repair tape cut with scissors and adhered in geometric patterns to plain art canvases produces gallery-worthy art. Round, flat fender washers stitched to a pillow become an oh-so-bold embellishment. Wire together additional washers in long chains and suspend them from a curtain rod for a graphic garland or window screen.

    • Baked Wall Art

      Mix in tart pans and other baking forms from your pantry and hang them from screws for three-dimensional sculpture interest.
