DIY doesn’t have to be synonymous with ‘Dad’. We are all perfectly capable of rolling up our sleeves and giving our homes a spring refresh.
These simple projects can all be achieved in a day, so why not make that day today? You won’t regret it.
1. Dip dye those legs
Now you can match your chair with your hair! This is a super simple project; choose two shades of semi-gloss paint, grab some painter’s tape to separate the two when applying, and you’re done!
2. Limitless ladders
An old wooden ladder can have so many uses. Prop it up against a plain wall and wrap fairy lights around it for a pretty corner feature. Attach it horizontally to your wall and turn it into a quirky photo frame. Cut it to size and stick it in your bathroom for functional shelves. I could go on…
3. Decorate a door
Salvage an old door from a second hand shop or junk yard, give it a lick of paint and place it over your existing drab coffee table. For a lower risk of spilt tea, place a piece of glass on top.
4. Turn that bin upside down
Get your hands on a metal waste-paper bin, reach for the spray paint in your desired colour, turn it upside-down and voila, you’ve made yourself a utilitarian-chic side table.
