There is an old-world charm attached to decorating your living space on your own. Not only does it give you creative liberty to do as you please, but it also saves you from the hassle and expense of hiring someone else to do it. Unlike popular belief giving your house a fresh look and feel does not have to be an intimidating task, it can be pretty simple. All you need to do is figure out what exactly works for you and then giving it your twist.

Here we are listing out a few things you can pick up if you are just a beginner who is attempting this for the first or second time.

Repaint to repurpose

You can change the whole look and feel of not only an object but also a whole room by adding a new layer of paint to it. What kind of colours you choose depends on your preferences and style. You can paint just about anything, your room doors, the window panes, your old rustic drawer, the cupboard. You name it, and you can probably paint it. For your chest of drawers and cupboards, you can go monochrome or even experiment with the colours; the whole thing does not have to be the same way, pick and choose as you desire.

The multipurpose mason-jars

Have you ever wondered what to do with those cute little mason jars when they seem to have outlived their purpose, and you haven’t yet broken them? You can accord them their new duty as herb or micro-greens planter. Make a list of the herbs or micro-greens you use frequently and then go ahead and create your small herb garden. If you are not into tending for plants, then you can fill them up with other items like coloured stones, artificial plants, etc. put them in any corner of your house, and you will find that place enlivened immediately

Create your Memory corner

Why not dedicate a corner which is an instant energy booster because it is filled with little pieces received or collected over the years. If you want to go a step ahead with the whole DIY thing, you can make personalized photo frames. All you need is cardboard, paint and a basic art kit. There are tons of good videos available on the internet from which you can take inspiration to create your version of it.

Decorating your walls with your artwork

Before you start thinking that you do not have the skills that are required to create something worth putting on the wall, hear us out. It does not have to be a perfect picture made with artistic precision. You can create beautiful pieces with just about anything you find around the house. Yarn, thread, ribbons even old bangles. All you need is to learn the basics of it or just figure out a way to put the whole thing together in a creative manner, and you are good to go.

Some people go a step ahead and venture into the area of candle making, curtain making, or even re-doing the cushion covers if you are among the adventurous kind you can give these a try as well along with or apart from the ones mentioned above.
