Ok, so we all love a bit of DIY, up cycling and crafting things around us. But even I have had times when I wish I could do half of the things pinned on my pinterest. But some projects are just too big, expensive, or unrealistic..we have all seen those epic fails..and I have had my fair share of them too..but I thought i’d feature some DIY’s that I have found, some of which I have done, which are budget friendly, simple and look great. I’ll be posting my top 5 once a week for different areas. Starting firstly with the kitchen…
Firstly, how amazing does this kitchen look? Just look at all the colour. Anyway to the DIY which comes from Oh Joy. Neon dipped storage jars is so effective and super cheap. You don’t even have to buy anything, as they don’t have to be neon. Just using paint and the jars you already have you can add a dash of colour to your kitchen. This is great for renters, as it can distract away from ugly decor you can’t change!
Spruce up old cupboards with washi tape. You can get so many different types of wash tape every where nowadays and it’s not overly expensive either. This is another renter friendly tip too! As washi tape comes of beautifully easy and won’t leave a mark. Honestly how did we survive without this pretty clouded tape? See this DIY at Vorstellung Von Schon.
So simple, cheap and effective. Add colour to your utensils with paint. Just make sure you varnish it afterwards so its wash safe!! This DIY is from Earnest Home Co. I’ve seen this been done with an ombre effect which looks awesome!
I’d be surprised if no one has any lego laying around, if not at their place at their parents..but if not. Charity shops are a great place to look out for lego, and this DIY from The Kitchn will please anyone..
Last but not least, up cycle old mugs and cups with 1 simple tool. Sharpie. A great DIY and it’s super quick and cheap there’s no excuse not to try it!! This is from Don’t mind if I do. You can also get sharpie in gold now too just think of the possibilities!
So there are 5 quick, cheap simple DIY’s for your kitchen. A great way to clear out the cobwebs and add some colour and texture without breaking the bank or your back!
