It’s hard to imagine something more satisfying than DIY home décor. It saves money, gives you something unique and customized, and lets your creativity out of the box. Here are some of the most stylish online DIY project ideas to help you create your own stunning bedroom décor.
Statement lighting can make a huge impact in a room, and you don’t need to shell out big bucks to get stunning fixtures. You can create a beautiful white pendant light with just a paper lantern and paper cut-out flowers. Transform an old exhaust fan into a chic industrial fixture. For a unique and colorful touch, go “neo-Baroque” with a DIY faux chandelier.
And for a kid’s room, a globe pendant light is the perfect accessory for a budding explorer.
Beautiful bedding is always better with decorative pillows. Make your own, in any color or style you can imagine, with no sewing required. For a simple sewing project, try an easy pillow cover. For the more adventurous, check out this DIY ruffled pillow.
Paint or even draw it on. When you’re the artist, you can make it as simple or ornate as you want. It’s hard to imagine a cheaper or more customized way to a beautiful headboard than simply painting it on the wall.
You can also hang it up. Use textiles like a woven rug or even curtains, or try an oversized work of arts.
Or just let it stand. Check out what DIY-ers have done with upcycled wooden pieces like antique doors, which you can paint and ditress to suit your color scheme and style.
You don’t have to be a master of the woven arts to make a great rug all on your own. Create an inexpensive custom rug with your favorite fabric pattern. Or use rope to weave a nautical or Celtic-style knot rug. For a whimsical and super-soft addition to a kid’s room, try a cloud-shaped faux sheepskin rug.
There’s really no end to things you can put in a frame. Like a patterned silk scarf. If you’re into geometrical shapes, circle punch wall art gives you a clean, symmetrical, and totally customizable piece. And you can always do the painting yourself with easy projects like a chevron-patterned triptych.
There are endless possibilities for recycling thrift-store furniture, and a nightstand is a great piece for just that kind of project. You can even build your own. But if you want something that will really stand out, try a nightstand made entirely out of books. Simply stack, top with a tray, and voila.
If you find a dresser you love at a flea market or yard sale (or on the side of the road) but the wood is all wrong for your room, flip it. It’s amazing what the right color of paint will do for tired old furniture. For an even simpler project, just replace the hardware (drawer handles or knobs). You can even mix and match different styles for an eclectic look.
