Give Cabinets a Fun Background

Print out photos and tape them to the wall behind the shelves to create a fun collage. Just make sure you use tape that won’t ruin the paint. Try Scotch removable mounting squares.

New Floors for the Commitment-Phobes

Tile tattoos are perfect for those who want a change but aren’t ready to commit. The temporary decals come in all sorts of shapes and designs. You can also use these on your kitchen or bath backsplash. Standard sizes are available on Etsy or you can custom order from places like Beautiful Wall Decals.

Photo Wall

Instantly transform a space by creating a photo wall. You can print photos off your phone at CVS super easily. No need to invest in expensive frames either. You can always paint the frame to spruce it up a bit. An alternative to using frames is Washi Tape! Washi Tape is so versatile it can become multiple DIY projects for you!

Paint an Accent Wall

Rather than paint an entire room, brighten up a space by painting one wall a fun color! Just remember to use painter’s tape so your paint job doesn’t look messy! For a more time-consuming DIY project, use a stencil to create a pattern on the wall. Mix and match to create a fun wall pattern.

Re-purpose an Old Ladder

It may no longer be sturdy enough to stand on, but that old ladder sitting around in your shed could make a very trendy bedside stand. Instead of cluttering up a small side table, stack your items on each step. Right now these ladders are super popular in the living room for displaying photos as well!
