I want to start by saying that I hope everyone reading is keeping safe, well & staying home as much as possible. I’ve only ventured to the village shop once all week & I think the fact that we’ve had such beautiful sunshine here in the UK for our daily walk has made me feel less claustrophobic than I assumed I would. If you’re finding yourself stuck at home with a home the needs some love then I’ve created a run down of some of my most popular upcycling projects below for you. Each project is budget friendly and can be completed quickly with tools/materials found in your loft/garage/utility room.
I revamped the small cottage garden at our old house using mainly reclaimed materials, paint & items I already had. We loved the feel of this space & despite it being small & on the road side spent many afternoons out here playing, relaxing & BBQing. See the full reveal & details here.
In this post I upcycled a piece of wooden furniture (old pine church pew) using emulsion paint & primer. The aim was to show you can upcycle using left over paint instead of buying new products, I can confirm the black pew has survived a house move and general wear without the need for a ‘touch up’. You can see the full post including before photos here.
This bathroom makeover at our old house is something I’m super proud of & cost less that £200 to create, seriously you need to click through to see the before photos of this room here.
This gallery wall was literally created in an afternoon. I painted some old frames & some cheap Ikea frames then stuck them up using command strips (making it rental friendly too). See how here.
Pirate Bedroom – Ikea Kura Hack
I created this pirate bedroom in an afternoon using the Ikea Kura bed, some cheap wallpaper from B&Q & some accessories from Amazon. The boy LOVE it & it was really cheap to achieve! See the full look here.
I’d love to see your DIY projects coming together, feel free to email them to me or tag me on Instagram & I’ll share them on my stories.
Pin for later…
