This winter has been a real doozy for us East Coasters – from endless snowstorms to the dreaded polar vortex, I’m ready for springtime to finally arrive. Whether you’ve been toughing out the freezing temps on the East Coast like me, or are one of the lucky ones basking in sunshine out West, we can all agree that a fun DIY home project is the perfect way to kick off spring.
This week, let’s get started with some big makeover ideas. Adding a statement furniture piece to any room is a great way to really define your space and add a bold impact. One of our favorite DIY statement pieces this week is this beautiful pallet coffee table. Reclaimed wood tables are one of the hottest trends, but they’re not cheap, either. This table is made from recycled wood and would look great either in a casual family room or outside on the porch once the weather warms up!
If you have hardwood floors, a new rug is a great way to liven up your living space. We love this popular Pinterest tip for creating custom stenciled rugs on a budget. For maximum impact, choose a bold stencil color, like Pantone’s “Radiant Orchid”, this years “Color of the Year.”
Thinking about reupholstering your furniture? Whether you’re recovering dining room chairs or a full sectional sofa, here’s a great guide to estimating how much fabric you’ll need to get the job done.
If you celebrate Easter, these ombre eggs in hurricane jars would make a simple yet stunning table centerpiece. And don’t just eat your veggies – use them to create a beautiful centerpiece, like this one from Better Homes & Gardens. Carrots and lettuce leaves are arranged inside a wide vase with fresh blooms. And we love this simple tutorial for tinting mason jars to hold spring flowers.
Finally, when it comes to DIY springtime home makeovers, don’t forget the front door! This DIY tulip wreath is the perfect way to welcome guests into your home. See that polar vortex? It’s time for spring!
