Must-Know Cheap DIY Projects for Your Home
Whether you want to see more about different ways to strengthen your home or different ways to beautify your home, there are plenty of options. Today we are going to focus on ways to make your home LOOK better.
1. Contact Paper Accent Wall
If you’re renting or you’re just not sure you’ll want to keep a wall the same color or pattern that long, contact paper is a great choice. Depending on the size of the wall, you may be able to complete it within a day and take the next day of the weekend as a rest day.
2. Backyard Canopy
Expand your living space by adding a backyard canopy. There are plenty of options that you can choose from but if you want to be able to easily collapse and set up your canopy, look for a canopy designed for camping.
If you don’t plan on taking your canopy down, you can find more permanent solutions but these can get messed up if you aren’t able to take them down during storms.
3. Input Closet Organizers
If your closet looks like you throw as much stuff as possible in there and hope it doesn’t pop out — time to get to work on closet organizers.
Whether you want to build the storage into your closet or buy an organizer to put in your closet, this will make your house much more functional.
4. Add Mirrors for the Appearance of More Space
Do you live in a small space and want to make it look bigger? Mirrors are a great way to make your space look larger without taking up any room on the floor. Mount a couple of mirrors here and there or buy doors for your closets that have mirrors and you’re good to go.
5. Reupholster Chairs
Does your dining room look a little drab? It’s time to reupholster the chairs and make things look fresh again.
If your dining room is already bold then you might choose a fabric that is muted. On the other hand, if your dining room is mostly pale colors, you can add a pop of color with your new chair upholstery.
