DIY Projects to Tackle While Spending Time at Home
Okay, so things are a little hectic right now. It seems like the world today is completely different than yesterday, let alone a few weeks ago. With everything that’s going on, the ability to build and create things can provide some much-needed positivity. If you’re spending a little more time at home at the moment, here are some nice and easy DIY projects you can have a go at.
Not only is it a proven way to improve your mood, de-cluttering your home will keep you productive as you create a more free and comfortable space for you to spend time in. Start with your most-used spaces like the bedroom and the living room and work your way towards clearing out the clutter. You don’t have to go full Marie Kondo; you just have to find a balance that works for you. Who knows, you might even find some long-lost treasures!
Start A Veggie Garden
Growing your own food can be extremely beneficial for both your physical and mental health. Starting a planter box in your backyard (or even on your balcony or deck) will give you a brand-new space to get creative with, all while delivering fresh and nutritious food! If only we could plant toilet paper…
Refresh an Old Piece
We’ve all got an old piece of furniture sitting around somewhere, on its last legs, kept in a corner where we don’t have to look at it. Why not restore your old furniture to its former glory? For most pieces, a good sand and a fresh coat of paint can go a long way from turning something you avoided look at to a standout in the room!
Spice up your Walls
Nothing says rejuvenation and positivity like a fresh coat of paint on a tired old wall. There are so many options when giving your walls a refresh, but whether you choose to paint the whole room, just a feature wall or even something more out there, you’re certain to feel proud of your achievements once you step back and take a look at your masterpiece.
Pots and Vases
Pottery is super fun for the whole family and easy to do! Try making pots for plants, vases, bowls, cups and more. The best part of this project though is what comes next, painting! Painting your pottery projects can be a chance to get truly creative, you might even find the process therapeutic as you create your very own art collection.
With everyone at home at the moment, you might be feeling the need for a bit of extra privacy! A simple and satisfying project can be to whip up a privacy screen, useful both indoors and outdoors. There are plenty of different styles to choose from, allowing you to get creative with it.
