6 Boredom-Busting Ideas for Home DIY Projects

If you’re like most homeowners, you used your time during the early months of the quarantine to take care of all the home improvement projects on your list. Now, you might be getting bored and wondering what to do next. 

Don’t worry, we’ve got six ideas for fun home improvement DIYs that you’re sure to love. They’re easy to complete in a single weekend and will totally transform your space. 

  1. Hang Some Rope Shelves
    From small plants and decor to picture frames and candles, there are many ways to decorate a beautiful set of hanging rope shelves. This project creates a beautiful aesthetic display without taking up too much wall space. You’ll want to use strong rope and lightweight or hollow shelves. Make sure that everything is anchored properly for the amount of weight it will hold. If you’re going to add some heavier items, don’t forget to reinforce the ceiling for extra strength.

  2. Build an Entryway Bench
    Sure, you could buy a bench for a few hundred dollars, but why do that when you can easily build one on your own? Like any home improvement project, you’ll want to spend some time thinking about the design. Once you know what you want it to look like, head to the lumberyard and pick up some inexpensive wood. When you’ve finished building your bench, don’t forget to cover it with comfortable cushions and pillows. You can buy some at the store or create a new project by making you own with repurposed blankets or sheets.
     
  3. Update Your Interior Doors
    One of the easiest and most impactful home improvement projects is simply refreshing your interior doors. You can keep this as simple as adding a fresh coat of paint or some trim. If you’re willing to take on something more dramatic, redo them in a completely new color and style. You’ll be amazed by how much this changes the look of your interior space.
     
  4. Install New Kitchen Hardware
    Want to modernize your kitchen without taking on a major remodeling project? Update the hardware! This simple home improvement can make your kitchen feel brand-new. There’s a reason why hardware is sometimes referred to as the “jewelry” of the kitchen. It can go a long way towards pulling your kitchen design together while also giving it an upscale look. Some of the things you might want to change out include the cabinet hardware, lighting fixtures, and faucets.
     
  5. Add a New Bathroom Backsplash
    Updating your bathroom backsplash is another easy home improvement that can have a major impact. This will allow you to bring a new style and some extra texture to the space. If you’re worried this might be too big of a home improvement project, consider skipping the traditional tile and using stick-on tile instead. This will give you a gorgeous effect without the hassle.
     
  6. Build a New Headboard
    Does your spare bedroom need a bit of a refresh? You don’t have to spend a fortune on a new platform bed. Instead, create a rustic-chic look by picking up some wooden boards and building your own headboard. Not only will you save a ton of money, but every time you look at your new home improvement, you’ll feel a sense of pride. 

We think the best home improvement projects are ones that help you to add a personal touch to your home. Each of these suggestions will do just that! Which one will you start first?
