DIY Decor Options for your Home

Upscaling old furniture

While you’re not exactly building the furniture yourself (although if you’ve got the tools, talent and tenacity you definitely could!), there’s still a big element of DIY to upscaling old furniture and making it fit what you want your home to look and feel like now. Whether you’re sanding and waxing, giving an old set of drawers a paint job, or providing a face lift with a new set of handles, it all goes towards decorating your home and saving yourself a bit of money! Even if you’re buying a piece of furniture to fix up and repurpose, you can still do so for very little money. Have a look in local charity shops and even online for your upscaling projects.

Create with sewing projects

If you’ve got a sewing machine (or a knack for sewing by hand) and some material laying about there’s plenty to make to help your home feel amazing. You can create cushion covers, curtain holders – and even curtains themselves if you have enough material to do so – material wall art, and plenty of other things for very little cost! Whether you’re repurposing old fabric or buying new for the job, you won’t be spending a whole lot on it, and can whip yourself up a bargain.

Your art as wall art

We’ve all seen the painted canvases people have on their walls, and there’s no reason you can’t give that a go for yourself! Picking up a canvas and some paints is easily done at a local arts store, and won’t cost you a lot at all. If you’re not artistically inclined yourself but perhaps have a friend who is, then ask them to rustle you up something! You get even more choice, there, and can choose exactly what you want to complement your colour scheme.
