3. Use an upside-down Command hook on the reverse side of a door to hang a wreath or painting!

12. Paint Your Door Edges

Want to add a little color but reluctant to do a whole wall? Why not just paint the door edges for a pop of color to tie into your decor? Or perhaps be super bold and use a fabulous maximalist wallpaper instead!
