Are you ready to upgrade your home for only a few dollars? We’ve got some simple ideas that can make an eye-popping difference in your house.
Whether you’re crafty or not, these new home projects are super easy and will definitely make you feel excited about the wonderful improvement your home will notice.
Some of these ten home projects require power tools, while others don’t need any! And amazingly, they’re all quite easy to use even for beginners.
DIY Blanket Ladder
You can actually make your own blanket ladder for about $5! You’ll save money, store your blankets in style, and improve your home. Not only that, this DIY project will only take you less than half an hour to complete plus some drying time.
You’ll need 16 ft of wood, a few wood screws, stain, and felt pads (optional) to prevent the top of the ladder from marking up your wall.
This super-easy project should be on the top of your list. Give it a try!
DIY Framed Mirror
A full-length mirror can look amazing anywhere around the house, or even everywhere if you’re so into mirrors. If you don’t have one yet, save money and make your own mirror at home. You can put this wood framed mirror together pretty easily.
Start with a basic cheap mirror from Walmart and get the following things ready: 3 fence picket boards, 1 flooring underlayment, miter saw, table saw, hammer, hand saw, nail setter, clamps, wood glue, silicone, nail gun, stain, and dark wax.
After cutting, gluing, painting, etc, the result is really stunning. The thick frame adds so much glory to the mirror, which eventually adds to the beauty of your home.
Upgrade Your Fridge with Stainless Steel Paint
Got bored of your old fridge? Make it look beautifully modern with stainless steel paint and save the cost of buying a new one. Make sure to use liquid stainless steel, which is made for this purpose.
You won’t have to be concerned about the painting tools because they come with the basic kit. Although the process will take some time, you’ll likely be very satisfied with the bright finish. Apply up to three coats to make the fridge shinier.
Upcycled Hallway Table
You can turn an outdated, boring dresser into an awesome hallway table that could even be a fun coffee bar! Be careful when cutting off the furniture and expect it to be a bit harder than you imagined. Choose the paint color you want and start painting. Use more than one coat of paint for the best result and don’t forget about the underneath side of the furniture.
I think everyone should do more upcycle projects. The results are always amazing and making your own pieces of furniture is much more fun than buying costly new ones.
