9 DIY Home Decor Ideas for Instant Personality

Live Edge Shelf

Transform an unused corner into a breakfast bar with a live-edge wood shelf and a DIY floating shelf kit. "The extra surface adds more eating space to the kitchen without feeling cramped," says Jenni Yolo of I Spy DIY, who designed and installed the shelf.

Painted Headboard

Create visual impact in the bedroom with a wall-to-wall painted headboard. A thin black line ¼" thick separates two wall colors: a cheerful green (Farrow & Ball s Breakfast Room Green) and creamy white.

Cubby Cabinet

Inspired by vintage apothecary cabinets, this sleek case with nine spacious cubbies offers storage for seasonal treasures and supplies. Recreate the look with about $15 worth of supplies.

Floral Candlesticks

Transform average taper candles into unique decor for your dinner party. Clean the candlesticks with alcohol, then use paint markers or acrylic paint to add floral designs. Decorate one side at a time to avoid smudging.

Banquette Backrest

Add comfort to a neutral corner by installing backrests. Designer Ali Henrie hung cushions from brass metal drapery rods a simple project, as most curtain rods are adjustable.

Teak Wall Tiles

Create a zen-like escape in your bathroom without renovating. Amy Leferink of Interior Impressions added a bench and eucalyptus in the shower, and applied teak panels to the wall with tile adhesive, finishing with hooks for fluffy towels.

Egg Carton Flowers

Upcycle old egg cartons into pretty flowers with this easy craft. Gather supplies like natural egg cartons, floral wire, paint brushes, and acrylic paint to get started.

DIY Wood Plant Stand

Showcase your indoor houseplants with a raised plant stand. This woodworking project takes just 45 minutes and is perfect for plants like snake plants and ZZ plants.

Colorful Glassware

Turn old clear jars into charming vintage-style colored glassware. This trend includes wine glasses, drinking glasses, bud vases, and decorative items.
