Quick-change decorating

At little cost, architectural interest was added to this room by suspending a series of fabric-covered frames from the ceiling. You might want to try this floating effect to camouflage a cracked ceiling, or to lower a too-high ceiling. Make 48-inch-square frames from 1x4s, then stretch and staple unbleached muslin to the frames.

Make-it-yourself indoor mini-gardens

Want to make a hodgepodge of houseplants add up to something spectacular? Try combining them to make an indoor garden, placing plants up, down, and around so you can enjoy their beauty at every level.

America Rediscovered Part 1 The Great Southwest

Americans' reactions to the celebration of our country's Bicentennial run the gamut from lump-in-the-throat pride to indifference to outright disapproval of celebrating anything when there's still so much to be done.
