5 DIY Tips To Fix Up Your Home

By: Boho Chic Cafe

This weekend I spent some time with my close friend Ammelia and we looked through a lot of different home magazines for apartment decorating ideas. I've been wanting to start several home projects for a while but hadn't quite gotten to organizing everything. She suggested I write down everything I envisioned, broken out by room, which I thought was a brilliant idea. Now, whenever I think of another idea for a room, I can look down at my previous thoughts and see if the new project is A.) cohesive with the other projects for that room, or B.) outweighs the other projects going on, and then I can make the decision of which ones to keep and which ones to let go.

I'm incorporating a few fun DIY projects for several rooms, and I'm definitely using one of these. Can you guess which one? I'm excited to get started!

5 DIY's you have to try this week

​MID CENTURY DAYBED 

Okay, so I don’t have a guest bedroom, and definitely won’t anytime soon, but when I do, I think this mid century daybed is definitely the way to go. To sum it up: 1. Cover your box spring with a cute cover or sheet. 2. Attach mid century legs. 3. You’re done. There are no more steps. 

GENIUS. 

This would also be a great solution for a studio apartment, just sayin’

GOLD PATTERN DESK ORGANIZERS 

Desks always seem to collect knick-knacks, so whether you just need a place to house all your loose items, or you need a mechanism to store your office supplies, these little gold catch-alls are the perfect solution

(Cough. I don’t actually have a desk yet, but when I DO, these are going to be high on my priority list!)

LEATHER & WOOD COAT RACK 

This DIY coat rack is something I’m pretty sure Dot & Bo would sell for like $400. Except the pieces of wood are basically broomsticks you can buy at the hardware store, with a bit of leather wrapping. I mean, really? Please be easier. DIY home decor at it’s finest, guys. I’m determined to find a place for this to go in my apartment.

EASY CRATE STORAGE

I’m not even sure this can be considered a DIY seeing as it doesn’t require any steps, but isn’t that the best kind anyway!? 

I love the idea of using wooden crates as shelves on a desk. You could also hang them on the wall! I’m secretly thinking of doing this in our bathroom, but I haven’t shared this with Neal yet. (Shhhh.)

DIPPED FLATWARE 

This dipped flatware DIY is an amazing solution for that old second set of silverware you’ve got lying around. Wouldn’t it be cute for entertaining, or a BBQ? And so easy too–just dip, hang, and dry!

DIY NEON WORD LIGHT 

I can’t get over how easy this is, and why I had never thought of this previously! Who knew making your own neon word light would be such a snap. 

Although I’m afraid I wouldn’t know which word to use. I think “hello” is a safe bet though, don’t you think? Which word would you go with?

DIY GOLD LEAF CLIPBOARDS 

And finally, the little beauties you saw above–gold leaf clipboards! I think this is such a fun way to hang art on your walls, and a great example of how something super simple can make a huge impact! (OR it would make a great little gift, don’t you think?)
