If you want a designer home interior, you don’t have to spend thousands on designer accessories and furnishings to get the look you want.
You can get a unique and stylish finish using a few old recycled items, a little bit of hard work, and plenty of creativity.
If you are ready to try a personal design project, here are four easy DIY home decor ideas that will look just as good as the more expensive retail brands.
Reclaimed Wood Garden Furniture
The soft warmth of reclaimed wood looks beautiful and modern, and you don’t need to pay for a designer version to get a fantastic look.
If you are ready for a bit of woodwork, you can create the whole look for yourself at a fraction of the price. To purchase some cheap wood for your project, go to a local lumber dealer or even search listings on Craiglist.
Use Pinterest for design inspiration, and get building! Outdoor side or coffee tables are perfect, and you can finish your look with some pretty lanterns and outdoor plants.
Large Abstract Canvas
If you have kids, an art project is a fun and unique way to brighten up a neutral room this summer. Grab a large white canvas, some paint, and create your own unique piece of art.
You don’t have to be a fantastic artist to do canvas home decor paintings for your home. It can be as simple as you want.
Go for abstract. Use colors that match your interior. You could even use your kids’ hands and feet to get a bit messy with some cute footprints turned into flowers or animals.
Floating shelves are a simple addition to any room, and with a bit of creativity, you can make these look like a work of art.
As a storage solution, they will also help you declutter. That’s helpful if your property management company has asked you to stage your room before selling.
To liven up a minimal room, create an asymmetrical set of shelves and fill them with bright colors or plants to give the room a focal point.
If you are an avid reader, have a set of floating shelves to store your most treasured book collections.
Suppose your children often return from school with arts and crafts. In that case, floating shelves are also a fantastic way to showcase their best artwork without your home feeling cluttered.
Turning an old, dated mirror into a chic, fashionable mosaic mirror is an easy and fun upcycling project.
Many everyday household items can be cut and stuck onto a mirror frame to create an interesting mosaic pattern, so you are only limited by your imagination.
What’s more, it’s a wonderful environmentally-friendly way to recycle unwanted items. Bring new life to things you’d typically throw away, like old CDs, which give a shiny, glossy finish to a room.
