Spring is just around the corner and there’s no better time to breathe some fresh life into your boudoir. Here are a few fun, simple and inexpensive DIYs that will get your space through to summer.
You don’t always have to buy new when you’re trying to upgrade your space. Take a little inventory of the other rooms in your house or backyard and find some plants or fronds to move around. We love this room decorated with simple greenery featured on Design*Sponge. (Koala bedspread and killer rugs don’t hurt either.) Even something as simple as changing out the plant pot can make your room feel re-energized and ready for spring. Think outside of the box for planters: check out this fun and vibrant zebra spotted in another room in the same home.
Reupholster something you already have in a new fun colorful print. You could freshen up a stool, or a chair, or — if you’re lucky enough to have a window seat in your bedroom like Lovely Indeed — you can recover the seat with a fun floral fabric. Yes, Rifle Paper Co. now sells fabric, so you’re welcome!
Here’s an easy Domino hack that will literally lighten things up this season. Take an IKEA SINNERLIG rattan pendant lamp, mount it on some spray-painted legs, and turn it into a fun floor lamp with tons of texture and style. No hardwiring needed!
A couple cans of paint is truly the quickest and most impactful way to really change up a space. You can do something really simple, like a bold single color hue, or do something intricate and creative like this: a totally unique one-of-a-kind floral mural. Bethany from This Little Estate hand-painted the entire thing, with a little help from her daughter, making it a fun project for the two of them. Using small tester cans ensured she got the most bang for her buck.
While you’ve got the paint out, upgrade some old or basic furniture in a bold or interesting hue. We gave this IKEA RAST dresser a simple makeover with a coat of blue paint followed by a bone inlay stencil.
Add some new pillows to your bed, and bonus points if you make them yourself! A faux fur pillow in a fun color is a quick way to freshen up your space while still keeping it cozy. We found this DIY tutorial on Paper and Stitch. Twenty minutes of easy work and you’ll have your very own new cozy, comfy pillow to snuggle with.
There’s no need to spend a lot of money on art. Martiza Lisa has a bunch of budget ways to fill your walls with easy DIY projects, including these framed plant images. The circular mattes really make them special.
Here’s a great project from Sugar & Cloth that uses an inexpensive cutting board as the basis for a fun and cheerful wall mirror. Paint it any shade or design you like for a simple spot of color.
