Ten Clever DIY Ideas


If your home is anything like mine then you probably have a ton of DIY products on your 'really need to do this someday soon' list. I'm always looking for simple ideas that can make a big difference to our home. We are currently looking a new storage solutions for the bedroom because someone *ahem may have a little too many clothes..

I thought it would be fun to compile a 'top ten' of some of my favourite I've found online lately.

This top image is from this blog (it's not actually a english language blog but you can get the idea from the picture!) I love the colour's she has painted to crates too.

2, I love this magazine rack idea from one of my favourite blogs ever.


3, How about this cute wallpaper steps? 
4, This is such a good idea on how to frame calendar art
5, Got to love these peg board ideas!

6, Love this sweet idea from this lovely blogger on creating a fairy light jar.
7. I don't know how well this works but wouldn't it be amazing if it worked?
8, Love this test tube spice rack idea!
9, Love this space saving idea 
10, Hows this for a clothes rail?


There are lots of ways you can make improvements to your home on a budget. If you are looking into finding out more about taking out a loan for bigger home improvements then you could check out the TSB loan calculator.  It's always good to talk though to your bank or financials advisor about taking out things like loans.

I love the hallway shoe one too, just a shame neither of us have pretty enough shoes to warrant being on display! Lovely ideas though to help think outside the box x

I have a peg board and would love to have more walls full of it, but it is so expensive in the UK!

Erica Price said...

That last one - amazing! Definitely something to look into as we still have an old Argos rail in use and whilst yes it's functional, aesthetically pleasing it is not!
