If you’re unlucky with the size or how to decorate the interior of a small living room
By far the living room is the largest room in an apartment or house. But this is not the case for everyone. For a small living room, we use the same decoration elements as for a large one, but only in dosage. Do not clutter up the room with unnecessary furniture, pompous artsy curtains, decor items. Furniture should not be massive. You can install a small fireplace or a raised fireplace. The aquarium will fit well. For a small living room, the use of mirrors will be relevant, for example, cabinets with mirrored facades..

Picture on chalkboard
First, let’s prepare a wooden surface. It should be dry and smooth. We print the desired photo on a laser printer. Then, cover the board with two layers of varnish (you can use yachting). Cut out the image area with a clerical knife and carefully attach the image with the picture down.
Instead of varnish, it is better to use an acrylic gel medium.
When the varnish is completely dry, we wipe off a layer of paper with a damp cloth so that the photo will “show through”. Let the workpiece dry and cover it again with two layers of varnish. The product is ready.
To remove the paper, you need to wet it and wipe it with your hands.
