There’s no better way to welcome spring than by upgrading your home with some DIY projects. Here are five fantastic ways to restyle and revamp your home for Easter.
1) Upgrade your headboard
Add a whole new look to your bedroom with a wooden headboard. Perfect for beginners, these projects use either new or reclaimed timber as well as nails to create a rustic, yet modern farmhouse feel. You can grab some free plans here.
2) Upgrade your coffee table
Industrial style is all the rage for 2019, and railway sleepers are one of the easiest materials to use when making your own furniture – they’re thick and moderately even, so all you need to do is ensure you stack them properly and you’re halfway there! The simplest to create is a low, Japanese-style table by assembling a few sleepers together – you don’t even need legs for it! Use reclaimed hardwood for a more modern look and feel. You can get lots of ideas on Pinterest.
3) Build a wooden boardwalk
Paths built with concrete, stone or paving slabs are expensive and labour intensive. If you’re looking for something equally as attractive and at a fraction of the cost, a wooden walkway is for you. Perfect for sloping gardens or particularly wet areas, grab yourself some quality decking and get started. The Family Handyman has some great tips on creating a boardwalk here.
4) Fix those fences
Effortlessly update your garden by adding a section of trellis to your fences. It’s amazingly simple to do with basic tools and will totally change your outdoor space, ready for those summer BBQs. Once you’ve fitted your new trellis you can take things up a notch by finishing in a new colour or stain, or by growing vining plants such as honeysuckle, or Clematis.
5) Get extra storage
A new garden shed makes a great place to store all your outdoor kit and tools, but it is also an amazing multi-purpose space that can offer you so much more. Whether it’s a reading room, craft room or even a playroom for the kids, the possibilities are endless with a garden shed.
