Spending an entire afternoon watching home repair or home upgrade shows will have you thinking you need a completely new house! Don’t despair. Just use these types of shows as inspiration. Then, find ways to do their suggestions yourself. Here are some of the best Do-It-Yourself home projects to help give you creative ways to bring new life into your home.
No china cabinet? No problem.
Display your dishes in a unique and chic way with an A-frame shelving unit. This will not only look amazing in your home but will be a fun and rewarding weekend project. You have so many choices with this shelving unit. You can leave it raw or you can choose a color or two to paint the shelves. This might also serve as a good excuse to get some new dishes because now they'll be on immaculate display.
Wooden peg wall for shelving.
Shelves are a staple DIY project for your home. You may find you just don’t have enough space to display or store things, so adding shelves is the next best idea. Take advantage of unused wall space and recreate this wooden peg wall. This not only provides an instant update and new look to your walls but completely transforms blank wall space. Adding these pegged wood boards gives you an excuse to reevaluate the paint color on your walls. You have the option to keep the wood in its raw form or paint the boards a color that works with the palette in your home.
Use a ladder as hanging space.
Having a decorative ladder that you not only built and painted yourself, but that also serves as extra storage space is kind of the ultimate DIY. There are so many options with the finish on this ladder, and then you get to decide where in your home you’ll place it. This looks like an easy enough project that you can complete over a weekend and use to decorate your space soon after. Hang plants, hats, jewelry, or blankets. The possibilities are endless (keep in mind that this would also look incredible in a bathroom to hang towels.)
Attach baskets to the wall in lieu of a linen closet.
Even if you have a linen closet, this is a great project that will add a cozy look to your bathroom, especially if you have the wall space for it. Simple enough, you’ll just need to grab some of your favorite baskets of different sizes, attach them to the wall so they are sturdy enough to hold some towels and toiletries. This is also a great way to organize small spaces and in homes that don't have a linen closet. Plus, it gives you an excuse to buy some new towels.
Make an unusual key holder.
Keeping your keys where you can find them easily is important. Why not let your creativity run wild and make a personalized key holder. There are so many ways to get creative with this idea; the possibilities are truly endless. This is a great way to keep your keys organized and in a fun space that you have devised.
