The impending snow storm has much of the country staying indoors this weekend. Why not tackle a fun and easy…and quick!… DIY project while you’re stuck inside? The Friday Five today is five DIY projects you can do in a weekend!
(1) Decorate a pillow.
Seriously, this could not be easier.
In our guest room, I bought two plain green pillows at IKEA for about $5 each. I added royal blue ribbon (to coordinate with the guest room wall) with Fabri-Tac fabric glue. Bam. Done in a few minutes and I have custom pillows!
(2) Make a chalkboard.
You can make a chalkboard out of any surface!
Paint your backsplash…
Or find a spare or salvaged cabinet door:
Or use just a piece of plywood:
My go-to chalkboard paint is this one from Rust-Oleum – it covers the best in fewer coats!
(3) Paint an accent wall.
It will take you less than a day to paint an accent wall.
But the impact is huge!
For other ways to decorate a wall, see this round-up from Huffington Post (my tree is #48!!).
(4) Hide the cords.
If you have an IKEA (or similar) basket and some annoying cable or power cords, this is the project for you!
Super easy and it works!
(5) Create a Coffee Bar.
With the storm coming, you’re going to want something hot to drink. How about setting up a coffee (or tea or cocoa) bar in your home?
Stay warm this weekend, friends! Stay inside and DIY!! #beBOLD
