DIY Home Decor

Do-it-yourself decorating allows you to customize your home, apartment, condo, or room with DIY accents that transform your space on a budget without completing a full-scale remodel. Whether you're a beginner or an expert, we guide you with instructions, tutorials, and step-by-step photos for indoor and outdoor projects and room makeovers. We have tips, techniques, and tools to get you started on paint projects, the easiest way to freshen up a space or decor item. But it doesn't stop there! We'll demonstrate how to make over furniture with paint or reupholster cushions with fabric, update garage sale items with wallet-friendly crafts tutorials using fabric and paper, and create DIY wall art for any space using a variety of materials and techniques. If you want to tackle bigger DIY projects, rethink your kitchen with remodeling ideas you can complete yourself (such as tiling a backsplash and creating a kitchen island) and browse our best bathroom makeovers. Try out a project or two, get your hands dirty, and fall back in love with your space.
