Getting the decor on a home just right is a no easy task. While it is possible to dish out hundreds of dollars for a professional designer, this is often a very expensive process and can have a plastic feel despite being made of the highest quality.
For an authentic look and charming personal appeal, the task of home decor has been best undertaken DIY style. The joy of creative self-expression coupled with the pride of improving the look of a living place through personal skills are only two advantages of pursuing this option.
Many feel they lack the skills with colors, balancing environments and even Feng-shui. But, these skills are best learned on the way. Following are some basic DIY home decor projects that won’t cost much and will help you build your skills as a DIY home decorator.
1. Chalkboard Wall Paint
Put a plain magnetic chalkboard anywhere you can paint and attractive frame around it. This is a terrific idea for kid’s rooms and kitchens. If they are magnetic, you have opened a whole world of attractive magnetic objects and effects that can be achieved by interchanging these regularly. This is also a terrific way to stay motivated for personal goals, keep the festive season alive or even convey important messages to other members of the home.
2. Wine Cork Necklace Rack
Good for keys and caps too! Some wooden stain (dark) for the board and paints for the corks will make this attractive utility really classy. Just, grab all those corks you have and attach them in array onto a wooden board with regular wood glue. Then attach this to the wall in your bathroom or by your vanity.
3. Floating Bookshelf
Looking for an DIY home decor projects with WOW! factor that also saves space? How about we magically levitate all those books into anti-gravity stacks on the wall. It’s simple, the first book must be a hard cover book you can afford to discard, but is still in good condition. Attach a metal wall L- bracket to the inside cover of your hardcover book and screw the other side into the wall (you will need a drill). If you understood the idea, all the other books will be piled on top of the first book successfully hiding the bracket and achieving the illusion of a floating stack of books.
4. Gold Flower Pots
You probably have many different flower pots of varying colors and even some dingy mossy pots as well. You can transform the entire look of your vivacious plant by gathering them up cleaning them off and categorically painting them all with a metallic spray paint. Gold, silver, copper or even attractive metallic reds blues and champagnes add a sophisticated look to the home.
5. Moroccan Dream Stencil
Want to try your hand at painting, but never had a good chance? Cut yourself a stencil of a saucy Moroccan design and pick a wall to brighten. The effects will amaze you, your inspiration to do more will abound and if it comes out awful, you can simply paint over and start again.
