Just because you can’t hire an interior designer doesn’t mean you have to bear with boring, white walls and dull home décor. With a little bit of DIY magic, you can transform your place into a fun and fabulous abode. Check out these easy-to-do makeover ideas to get you started!
1. Replace your ordinary drawer knobs with quirky ones.
It's all in the details. Give your old, boring knobs the boot, and replace them with one-of-a-kind pieces that fit your personality.
2. Maximize your washi tape.
These cool, artsy tapes do more than just add "oomph" to your envelopes. With a little ingenuity, you can also use them to brighten up a plain hall arch or wall! Learn how to do it exactly on A Beautiful Mess.
3. Leave a message on the stairs.
Another cool DIY home makeover suggestion is to paint inspiring quotes or messages on the stairs. It doesn’t just serve as a wonderful welcome home, it also helps you think positively on your way to the top.
4. Wrap your furniture in pretty paper.
Upholstering isn’t everything. If you want to give your old furniture a new look, you can try doing a bit of decoupage. It’s a classic DIY technique that involves covering stuff with paper and layering it with varnish. See how Poppytalk did it here.
5. Give your shelves a paint job.
Don’t let your books be the only interesting thing about your bookshelf. Give that walnut, chestnut, or narra wood a makeover by running your paint brush through in straight and zigzag lines. Get the step-by-step tutorial on Design Love Fest.
