1. DIY Reading Nook
2. Moroccan Stencil Wall Design
With only a single piece of cardboard, you can add a very cool Moroccan-looking theme to your wall or walls. If you aren’t crazy about it or later want to modify it, it’s as easy as painting right over!
3. Simple DIY Custom Shelves
Putting together some of your very own custom shelving is incredibly simple. You’re only going to need some hobby lobby brackets along with a piece of wood. The style of wood (along with how you choose to paint or finish it) can match the tone of any room or other accessories.
4. Antique Table Stencil
For a method so simplistic, this one has got a lot of style mileage. Placing a floating shelf on your wall and then using a stencil to accentuate it with an antique table motif looks positively amazing.
5. Inexpensive Chic Curtain Headboard
Headboards, particularly those with serious style points, can weigh a ton. Difficult to move and prohibitively expensive, you can be left wondering WHY DO WE DO THIS TO OURSELVES. Instead, just install a great curtain rod above your bed and hang some lavish curtains.
6. Magnetic Chalkboard Wall Hanging
If you have a spot on a wall that you would like to accent in a fun way, consider putting up a chalkboard. These items are becoming trendy even in adult homes with no children due to their versatility and their spirit of play. If you get one that’s magnetic as well, you have even more room for creativity by adding other attachments to it.
7. DIY Door Mat Wall Hanging
If you are feeling a little bold, this tip can give you a ton of options to cover wall space with cool new accents. Take a slender bit of wood or even canvas, and use your (or pick up a) ornate door mat for a stencil. Spray paint over and voila: you’re left with one or more slick new pieces of wall art.
8. DIY Frame Shelving
Whether you’re a fan of antiquing or have some great contemporary frames you’d like to expand your use of, frame shelving is a fantastic option for repurposing these items to create excellent wall decoration. Start with some cheap wooden shadow boxes and attach your frames to the fronts to create an appealing and unique presentation.
9. DIY Unique Floating Bookshelves
Here’s a cool DIY home craft with a unique look all its own. Install a slender wall mount that will be easily concealed by anything it’s carrying. For the bottom book of the stack, glue the back cover to the underside of the mount so that the mount is not visible from beneath. Then place a handful of books on it to create the pleasing illusion that the books are hovering in space! Visitors to your home will find it fetching to say the least.
10. DIY Personalized Essay Canvas
Turn a flat and boring wall into an artistic statement all your own. Stick with prose, or even add doodles to create an extra visual impact. Just pick up a cheap canvas and go. Lost for inspiration? Use a quote you like, or even song lyrics.
