Toilet Paper Shelf - Just buy a "shadow box" from a craft store and paint! (I probably wouldn't use this idea specifically for a toilet paper shelf, but worth remembering for other places around the house)
Separate your wall colors. This is SUCH a good idea! I dont like two colors coming together on a corner and this is the fix for that! This would also be a great fix for the beat-up corners in the house. -- corner of family room & foyer/dining room
Add crown molding to top of inexpensive wall unit/bookcase to transform look. This wall unit is 3 old cheapo laminate book shelves, painted, thin paneling removed and bead board added to the back for support and crown molding added to the top.
