Do you want to refresh a room in your home? Well, we have a top DIY secret to share with you! The #1 way to do this & save money is to DIY both your pillows and lampshades. Both of these projects are quite budget friendly but also are quickly noticed by anyone who comes into your home. Even if they are there all the time, like an extended family member who lives in the same town, we can share with you that they will see a change in that room.
DIY-ing your lampshades is an easy project. This is something most often you can do in an afternoon’s time or even in a weekend, if you are waiting for paint or glue to try, to go on to the next step. When you create lampshades, this gives any room that lovely, polished “interior decorator look” that so many of us long for. You can take a few cellphone photos of the room, such as the wallpaper, rug, furniture and pillows – and then get fabric or ribbon to create DIY lampshades that compliment the decor so nicely.
One thing we love about this DIY, is that once you’ve created 1 lampshade, you are going to feel quite confident that you can create just about any of them! So even if you’ve never done this project, we really want to encourage you. Many DIY-ers find this to be a fun project. We recommend you begin with one that uses materials you’ve worked with before. Then go and try others that are new to you too!
Let’s make every room in our homes welcoming & beautiful! Happy DIY-ing!
