3 DIY Projects to Improve Your Apartment


Bored of your apartment and looking to redecorate? There are plenty of things you can do on your own to spruce up your place!

Below are some DIY projects you can do around your apartment with your own two hands.


1. Move The Furniture Around

Sometimes it helps to get a fresh perspective on your apartment space. Don’t even think about it at first, just start moving your furniture around. Throw your couch on the left side of the room or place your coffee table in the corner. You probably won’t like what you see at first, but you might get an idea on what you like during the process.


2. Create a Painting for Your Walls

Paintings are a great investment for any apartment. Try making a painting of your own using the walls of your apartment as your canvas. The feeling of being in control and the creativity that comes with painting can be very therapeutic.

This notion of comfort is really how you should go about decorating your whole apartment, including everything from the furniture to the floorboards. The place that people live can say a lot about them as a person. As the person living in your apartment, you’ll be surprised how pleasing it is to walk around in a space that is truly your own.


3. Make Decorative Mugs

Find yourself some plain mugs, grab a sharpie, and then write your favorite sayings on them in fancy cursive. Bake it in the oven for about 30 minutes at 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Pull your mugs out of the oven, and there you have it! You now have some ornamental coffee mugs that you can decorate your kitchen with.


4. DIY Floating Bookshelves

For the bookworms out there, you can make the allusion of floating bookshelves on your walls. Start drilling a bookend into the wall. Then place the whole of the book on top of the bookend, while placing the book cover on the bottom of the bookend. This gives the book the illusion of being suspended in the air. From here, you can stack all of your favorite books on top. Put your whole Harry Potter series on one side of the wall and all of Game of Thrones on the other!
