Today I have a round up for you of 7 fun home DIY projects that you can do around your own home.
Hey friends! I hope you are having a good week! I have put a little round up together for you today of some DIY projects I am loving. These projects have varying degrees of difficulty. For heavy-duty projects around the house, you will want to contact professionals to ensure it is done correctly. However, there are plenty of things you can do yourself. There are plenty of fun DIY projects to partake in, and here are just a few that may be right for your abode.
Before we get started on today’s post, I just wanted to tell you about my Amazon Influencer Page that is brand new. You can click here to shop my page. I have lots of things linked that we have purchased and love, and things that are also on my wish list. I will be continually adding to it, so check it out!
7 Fun DIY Projects
1. A Wooden Blanket Ladder
You can add a cozy addition to your home by making a rustic ladder to hold blankets, towels, or anything you want, even aprons or tablecloths. You can neatly fold or haphazardly toss your throws onto each rung of the ladder. You can make one using various types of boards and paint or stain. If your home already has a rustic vibe to it, then this can make for a great, practical addition.I love the simplicity of this one below that was made by Domestic Imperfection.
2. Command Center
If you are a busy mother with a million things on yours or your family’s schedule, or you have papers and mail coming out the whazoo, you might consider finding a space in your home where you can create a command center. This can be a space your entire family can benefit from utilizing. It can serve as a place to corral backpacks, keys, school papers, mail. A place where people can add things to a monthly calendar, leave each other notes, jot things down on a grocery list. You can place chore charts here too, along with supplies that people use frequently. Below is a really cute idea from The Crafting Chicks.
3. Mud Rooms
Instead of everyone just throwing their shoes, jackets, and bags all over the floor when they walk in, you can make things far more efficient. You can create a mudroom out of the smallest of spaces in your home. I created a mudroom in the downstairs hallway that leads right to the garage, so it is a perfect landing spot. You can see the full reveal here.
I love to see mud rooms that utilize industrial or vintage types of lockers for storage. This mudroom at Domestic Imperfection is perfect!
4. DIY Firepit
Anyone who enjoys time in the backyard could invest in making a DIY fire pit. You will be roasting marshmallows and staying warm in no time by purchasing some pallets, a steel pot and concrete tiles. You can find a tutorial for this project by Jamie Sanders at Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom. This project can take a little more time than others, but the results are worth it.
5. Fresh Coat of Paint
Curb appeal is incredibly important to any home, especially if you plan on selling your house in the near future. See what area could benefit from a fresh coat of paint. Most homeowners will want to paint their front doors at some point because that is the first thing guests see when they visit. You can play around with different colors and patterns to see what complements the rest of the building well.I love this bold color chosen by Aniko from Place of My Taste.
6. Personalized Address
I love it when a street number is displayed prominently outside of a home. It makes it so easy for guests and delivery trucks to find. However, that does not mean you have to settle for drab numbers. Instead, you can display it in such a way that it increases the curb appeal of your home. I’m always looking for little ways to increase our curb appeal, and I love this DIY street number made by Amanda at A Crafted Passion.
7. A White Picket Fence
Before you build your own fence, you should check to see if you need a permit from your city to do so. You also want to see if a fence would be covered by your homeowners insurance agency. If it is, then you can have a lot of fun setting up a fence in the front yard. It will make your home look positively idyllic.
These fun DIY projects vary in their range of difficulty. Obviously, painting a front door is going to be much less complicated than building a white picket fence. Which reminds me, my husband loves a white picket fence. It’s on his bucket list of things that he wants in our next house. The house we live in now would not be appropriate for one, but whenever we look at homes he is always checking to see if a white picket fence would work in the front.
There is a lot you can do to improve your home all on your own with some planning and some elbow grease. Hopefully these 7 fun home DIY projects gave you some ideas for things you can try in your home. If something seems too complicated for you though, don’t be afraid to bring in an expert. For example, we wanted to add some lighting in a downstairs bathroom where there was no wiring for a light. We hired someone to do that because we aren’t quite that comfortable with our electrical skills. Your home is your sanctuary, and you should feel utterly comfortable while you are there. Don’t be afraid to make your home fit your family better and to give it some of your own personality. Make it a place you love!
