5 DIYs To Beautify Your Home
When looking for home DIYs, it's easy to fall down a rabbit hole of information overload (Think: Pinterest and all of your favorite home blogs, like this one!). To help you save face, we've done the hard work of seeking and finding some of our favorites. Here are five that are sure to impress your family and friends... and your bank account.
1. DIY Limewash
One of our favorite and most inspiring interior design books, Wabi Inspirations by Axel Vervoordt explores the style and philosophy of the East. Flipping through the pages of the minimalist spaces we are entranced by their warmth. The walls in particular stand out by their textured strokes and inviting earth tones. We've wanted to create walls in this style ever since and have found a DIY that can help achieve the earthly look by using limestone and putty. More eco-friendly than commercial house paints there are many advantages to using limewash.
2. DIY Clothing Ladder
Incorporating a linear ladder in your home is a great way to keep your clothes on display before they hit the hamper as well as showcasing that beautiful handmade shawl of yours. Let's be honest, after one wear in your favorite top you're not ready to send it to the cleaner just yet- it's still got a wear or two left. But you aren't quite ready to put it back in the closet either. This DIY is chic and a great way to air out the laundry.
3. DIY Pendant Lamp
How could we not include this amazing $10 DIY pendant lamp? It's chic and affordable and will make a great project for craft night with the ladies while catching up on Mad Men.
4. DIY Natural Dyes
We have been obsessed with natural dyes for a while now. There's a gamut of colors you can achieve just by boiling up your compost. Red onion skins, cabbage, turmeric can all give colors that will amaze you and look great on that once white silk blouse you have. This DIY is great for those just starting their first natural dye adventure. We guarantee you'll be hooked.
