10 Cheap and Easy DIY Home Projects to Try
1. Give your house a fresh coat of paint.
Cover up all the knicks and flaws of your old painted walls. Do so by giving them a makeover by adding a fresh coat of paint. You can create an accent wall, change up the color, or wipe away any flaws with the same color you had before.
2. Add crown molding to your walls.
Crown molding can add a touch of charm and value to your home. You can pick up new molding from your local hardware store and then use a dab of mud to elevate any room of your home.
3. Give a piece of furniture a new finish.
Use some chalk paint or varnish to create a distressed look on a dresser. Conversely, repaint your coffee table to make it more modern. The possibilities of what you can do with a coat of paint or finish are endless.
4. Add in some greenery to your home.
Get a few potted plants for the front porch, or pick out some new plants for your home. Make your own pot to give the plants more personality.
5. Repaint your front door.
If you’re looking for an outdoor DIY that will have a significant impact on your home, try repainting your door. A bright new color can give your home the uplift it desperately needs.
6. Swap your porch lights.
Changing your front porch light can instantly add some curb appeal to your home. Add a hanging lantern or switch the lights for something a little more unique.
7. Update your gallery wall.
Swap out your photos and even redo the frames to create a brand new gallery wall for any room of your home.
8. Put down fresh caulk in your grout.
We all know what an aging caulk looks like. It starts to brown and looks brittle and cracked. So whether you’re working in your bathroom or kitchen, recaulk your grout to make it look brand new.
9. Add some new backsplash.
Your bathroom or kitchen probably has had the same backsplash for a while. You can buy a new peel-and-stick backsplash to give it a quick update that can be done in a single day.
