Love the home you have and get the look you want with these 8 DIY Home Improvement Projects you can actually accomplish yourself!
When you have a home and you enjoy decorating it can be very overwhelming to do all the things you want without putting yourself under a mountain of debt. This fixer upper we’re currently working on has been full of huge renovations, like remodeling our kitchen, bathroom, and creating a kitchenette upstairs. These were all very expensive gut jobs that were absolutely necessary. However even though this is my full time job, everybody hits a wall and you have to stop spending so much money and focus on obtainable, affordable projects! I’ve gathered up a few ideas from our years of DIYing and I’ll even be sharing some new ones soon! You can follow along with me on Instagram to see what I’m currently working on. Let’s take a look at these affordable DIY Home Improvement Projects.
Wall treatments, if done in a smaller space, can be quite affordable! We added board and batten in my daughter’s room to cover up some of the cracking plaster. I would never suggest to cover up something that is an issue, but old plaster is known to crack… so while the structural integrity was fine, the visual appeal wasn’t at it’s best. Adding a wall treatment allowed us to affordably make this room look much better without completely gutting it!
You’ve heard this a million times before, but that’s because it’s true! Paint makes a whole room look totally transformed without breaking the bank, and you will be so happy you made this simple change.
Storage isn’t a huge DIY project, but adding storage can greatly improve the look of a space when you actually give yourself a place to put all those things that drive you crazy! Focus on problem areas, and you will see major results. Get tutorials for: Faux Floating Shelf and Pipe Shelves
Do you have ugly tile or vinyl floors? Did you know you can paint those? Even if you want to replace your floors one day in the future, this is a cheap way to enjoy your home until the time comes!
So many bathrooms come with a standard, plain bathroom mirror. Don’t run out and buy an expensive one, instead just a few pieces of wood can provide you with a custom look.
Kitchens are always the place us women want to look nice. Probably because we spend so much time in there ;). Just like paint on walls can totally transform a room, painting cabinets can change the whole style of your kitchen.
Sometimes we just want our houses to feel like “us”. Consider DIYing a few decorations to really bring a room to life! You’ll be amazed at what a few things on the wall can do!
If you have a space in your home that’s just gathering junk and making you feel like your home is unorganized, turn it into a functional, organized space. You’ll be so happy you made this little change!
