I’ve spent a while gathering up my favorite DIY projects for around the home. Some are quick and easy, some are more involved. The winter is a great time to tackle a lot of these since you are stuck in the house anyway. Just make sure that if you do any requiring paint, chemicals, etc., that you have proper ventilation – and have fun!
Curtains aren’t cheap, and if you like to change them up frequently, your wallet can really take a hit. I wanted ikat curtains but didn’t want to cough up the bucks, so I eventually found a great deal on fabric and sewed them. Another great option is to buy some cheap curtains (or twin flat sheets from walmart) and paint them. I love the ones above. See how to do it here.

Hide your unsightly router in decorative boxes or cut out an old book. I love this idea because I hate my router being in plain site. I would make the ventilation holes in the back of the boxes larger though, and make sure that in the beginning you check the router frequently to make sure it’s not overheating.
I also hate a clutter of devices on my desk or counter charging. Creating a charging drawer is such a clever idea. Learn how here.
Paint those old vinyl floors? I have to admit, the results look amazing, but this one is obviously more involved, and you would want to research how durable it is before taking on all the work. Learn how here.
What do you think? Interested in trying any of these out?
