DIY home décor ideas


What better way to portray your essence than through simple DIY home décor projects that add a personal touch and contemporary flare to your home. Most of these projects can be completed in just one day at a cost much less than what you'd pay for something similar at a store.

These home décor ideas are inspired by the change in season - natural materials, bright accents and luxurious greens.

If coffee tables aren't your cup of tea, this hairpin stool can be achieved through a similar method. This piece takes a bit of elbow grease, but for a $5 price tag who can complain? An old wooden cutting board with a new finish might also do the trick. (Source: PopSugar)

Tiles can breathe new life into old items from side tables to serving trays to backsplashes. Neutral tones add an earthy element to your home, while bright patterned tiles bring boho-charm. This craft allows you to get creative with a little less DIY. All you need is some tiles and a hot glue gun! (Source: Ikea)

6. Succulent Succulents

Add greenery to your home with an indoor succulent garden. These can be made in almost anything – that gorgeous bowl with a chip in it, a wide mouth mason jar, that empty terra cotta pot in your garage. If you have a more minimal item you're considering converting into a home for your succulents, painting it brings another opportunity for original DIY décor. (Source: The Blondielocks)

Storage that doubles as décor is our kind of storage. These painted baskets add character and dimension to a space, with the addition of functionality. Use neutral colours like whites and soft greys to maintain the element of an accent, or add bold, lively colours to make a splash. (Source: The Marion House Book)
