A lot of times, people have the best intentions when it comes to DIY projects in the house. However, many are intimidated by the idea of a project in case it involves a lot of work, supplies, and money. However, it doesn’t always have to be that way. In fact, there are plenty of easy projects that are not only simple to do but don’t require a ton of supplies either. Here are some projects that you can get done even this weekend.
Hand Painted Wallpaper
Cassandra Campana from Cass Creates A Home shares this amazing idea for finding a way around paying for expensive wallpaper. She shared: “I used a level and long piece of scrap wood to draw the vertical lines along the wall. Then, I cut two pieces of scrap wood at an angle and glued them together to make a template for the rest of the pattern.” Once she finished drawing the design on the wall with a pencil, she used a thin brush to paint it.
Something that will totally change up a lonely kitchen corner is this adorable DIY coffee station idea. It’s really simple: Jes and Madhu Das from Yea We Built That explained. Sand some wood and treat it with lacquer and then “put the pieces together [and] be sure the shelf is at a 90-degree angle so your shelf contents don’t slide off.” You can then attach mug hooks under the shelf. These can be found at hardware stores.
You can take a meh mirror and easily transform it into something much more exciting. Thanks to DIY blogger Sarah Macklin from Dream of Home, you can find some inspiration. She said: “I recently turned a plain wooden mirror into a gorgeous rose gold piece using only white paint, tape, and a can of Rust-Oleum spray paint in rose gold.” She added another upscale touch by painting the corners with white paint, covering them with tape, and spray painting the rest of the frame to make it look much more luxe than its original frame.
If you’re looking for a new bed, there’s no reason to actually spend hundreds, if not thousands, on a brand new bed frame. You can totally transform your bed by just reupholstering the headboard. As Amanda Poe of BohoFrisco shared: “This update was inexpensive and made a huge impact, but it did take a couple of coats to cover the gray color of the original upholstery.” Try it out for yourself!
Poe also shared this amazing idea for totally revamping a boring nightstand. She shared: “I used chalk paint and a stencil to create this bone inlay look for a fraction of the cost.” With this simple idea, you can completely customize your nightstand and turn it from something plain and simple into exactly whatever you’re looking for.
