DIY projects are fun and easy and are ideally suited to those who are looking to give their living room a simple makeover without having to splurge. Here are a few DIY ideas for you to spruce up your public spaces.
If you have an ottoman and barely use it, you can transform it into a coffee table, and vice versa. For the former you simple need a proper base and the latter requires large cushions!
Create a fun collage with pictures taken on your travels, or pictures taken of nature or things that you love, from magazines or the internet. Place them on the walls to add character to your living room.
Reuse old watering can and pain them in bright colors. They can be used as vases on your mantelpiece or coffee table.
Have plenty of jars from used candles? These can be created into fun ornaments by removing any remaining wax and painting the jar using stencils. Add some glitter for some extra luxury.
Use old fabric, even if you have just small pieces, to stitch together a throw blanket or cushions for your sofa. This adds an eclectic feel to any room.
Use old plates to decorate your living room walls by arranging them in abstract designs.
