DIY Ideas on a Budget
I gathered up some DIY ideas to inspire some creative ways that will liven up your home. Worry not, none are too complicated that you can’t achieve on your own. They are all easy to replicate.
A corner shelf is a simple additive that can really add character to a room. You can make the shelf by taking half-square of wood that is one-inch thick. Try corner brackets to affix the shelf to the wall. You can paint and stain it to your liking before hanging.
These shelves are a lot like a floating mantle. There are a variety of techniques that can be used to make these shelves. The size of the self you choose may vary. There are floating shelf kits and brackets available at your local home improvement store.
Geometric Wall Shelf
Small square, diamond, and triangle wall shelves are very popular. Cut one-inch thick pine pieces into eight-inch squares to create the perfect size. You can use these shelves for hanging small figurines or decorative candles.
Taking the right wallpaper and framing it with a quality frame or set of frames can have a wonderful effect on a room’s décor. Elegant prints like damask will truly add a bit of splendor to your home.
Terrariums are a simple way to add life to a room without having to worry about maintenance. Succulents and small cactus plants give just the right accent to your space. Plant your succulents in glass vases and fishbowls to bring a little life to your environment. Adding glass rocks or river rocks will add even more nature to your project.
Cork Wall Art
If you are a wine connoisseur, you may want to start collecting your corks. Cork wall art is made by framing cork stacked in different patterns. You can leave the corks in their natural state or add some gold metallic paint to give your art some flair.
Inspirational Saying Art
If you have one of those beautiful Minneapolis houses for sale, you can make your potential buyers feel right at home by using inspirational sayings on canvas. Use stencils to paint short inspirational sayings onto painted canvas.
Turn that special photo into a work of art. There are companies that will print any image onto a canvas. This technique turns your picture into a portrait.
Canvas and Vinyl
You don’t need to be a world-class painter to make attractive art for your home. The craft store has plenty of beautiful vinyl decals that can be used over a canvas painted a pastel colour; the outcome will make you feel like a true artist.
The Gist of it
Taking uncommon approaches to decorate your home can be really inspirational. It gives you the freedom to mould your home as you please. These are just a few projects to keep in mind. The things you can do are limited only to your imagination.
