Quick & Easy Interior Do-It-Yourself Projects

During the colder months of the year, particularly on the homestretch of Winter, it is understandably easy to get a bit antsy and wanting to do “something” productive around the home, especially when doing a project outside may not be the best option given the weather.

Keeping in mind that everyone’s home situation, age of home, style of home, etc. can be quite different, here are some ideas for interior ‘Do-It-Yourself’ (DIY) projects around the home that can be considered ‘quick & easy’ and that can refresh your space without requiring extensive time or resources:

Paint an Accent Wall: Choose a bold color and paint one wall in a room to serve as a focal point. This can add visual interest and personality to the space without painting the entire room.

Create a Gallery Wall: Gather a collection of your favorite photos, prints, or artwork and arrange them on a wall to create a gallery-style display. Mix and match frame styles and sizes for an eclectic look.

Install Removable Wallpaper: Use removable wallpaper to add pattern and color to a room without the commitment of traditional wallpaper. It’s easy to apply and remove, making it perfect for those who like to change up their decor on occasion.

Create Custom Shelving: Install floating shelves in any room to add both storage and display space. Customize the size and placement of the shelves to suit your needs and style preferences.

Upgrade Cabinet Hardware: Replace outdated cabinet knobs and pulls with new hardware to give kitchen or bathroom cabinets a fresh look. This simple update can make a big difference in the overall appearance of the room.

Hang Statement Curtains: Choose curtains with a bold pattern or vibrant color to add personality to a room. Hang them high and wide to create the illusion of larger windows and make the room feel more spacious.

Create a Fabric Headboard: Make a DIY headboard using plywood, foam padding, and fabric. Simply upholster the plywood with the fabric of your choice and attach it to the wall behind your bed for an instant style upgrade.

Make Decorative Throw Pillows: Sew or non-sew your own decorative throw pillows using fabric remnants or old clothing. Mix and match patterns and textures to add visual interest to your sofa or bed.

Create a Cork Memo Board: Turn a plain corkboard into a stylish memo board by covering it with fabric or wrapping paper and framing it with molding. This provides a functional yet decorative way to display notes, photos, and reminders.

Install Under-Cabinet Lighting: Add LED strip lights underneath kitchen cabinets or bathroom vanities for extra task lighting. This not only improves visibility but also adds a modern touch to the space.

These quick and easy DIY projects are perfect for adding style and personality to your home without a major time or financial investment. Plus, they’re a fun way to unleash your creativity and make your space truly your own at a time of year that doing outside projects simply may not be feasible.
