It’s National Home Improvement Week and we’ve teamed up with different makers to bring you six projects to improve your home! These DIY projects are all suitable for beginners, and so everyone can get involved.
1. Rainbow Wall Painting
Bring the rainbow to any bedroom, children’s or not (no judgement here) with this painted rainbow by interior designer Melanie Lissack.
2. LED Volcano Light
Who doesn’t want a light that looks like a volcano?? Check out this creative project by Out Of The Woods!
3. Upcycled Plant Pot
With just a little twine or rope and a handy hot glue gun, MakeItSoph shows us how easy it is to upcycle a simple plant pot into something creative and unusual!
4. Cork Art Decor
Don’t throw away your corks – recycle them into an amazing wall art decal like Nino from Nin0craft. You can transform them into any shape you like!
5. Sink Makeover
A simple thing like evaluating the size of objects in your house, and making sure each space is utilised in the best way, can be greatly beneficial in improving your home. KK Makes shows us with her sink makeover!
5. Side Table With Built In Charger
Fed up of your chargers, wires and remote controls lying around everywhere? Well, Joe from Average Joe’s Joinery has come up with the perfect DIY side table – it has storage for your (one too many) remotes and an integrated power socket!
6. Lego Display Shelf
Who doesn’t love Lego?! What better way to display your favourite pieces than on this custom made Lego shelf. This is also fully adaptable as a display piece for other small items.
Home Improvement doesn’t mean solely taking on huge projects. It can be the simple act of finding something you already own and embellishing it a little, or switching out one item that’s been getting on your nerves. This week, for National Home Improvement Week, why don’t you find a project to do around the house? If you do make or upcycle something, we’d love to see! Feel free to send us photos via our Facebook page, or the ‘Contact’ page on our site.
