Resident creating artwork using plant life found near Olympus Waterford in Keller, Texas



Feeling a little “blah” about your home’s interior design? It doesn’t take a fancy degree or a truckload of money to give a space that va-va-voom you’re craving. Best of all, with these three DIY decor ideas, you can add a brag-worthy personal touch that’s sure to be the talking point of any get-together.

Take a Picture. It’ll Last Longer.

This one’s for our nature lovers, or even just admirers. Beautify any wall with framed plant leaves or flowers. All you need is a picture frame or rustic window frame and a little outdoor magic. Go on a walk and gather together a handful of flowers, leaves, or thin branches that catch your eye. Next, you’ll want to grab a few heavy books, slide your finding in between and flatten overnight. Slide them into a bare frame and you have yourself a work of art! Looking for a statement piece? Don’t be afraid to paint the frame with a pop of color or metallic!

Respect the Dip, Karen

Turn your everyday practical items into a dazzling DIY showstopper. We love this idea of paint-dipped kitchen chairs by The Painted Hive. Grab your outdated wooden chairs, a can of your favorite accent-color paint – maybe a couple of old towels to catch any mess – and we’re set to go. The idea here is to only paint a couple of inches worth of the top and bottom sections of your chair with a statement color, leaving the rest natural. This color-blocking look is super modern and trendy and is sure to give your kitchen that elevated glow you’ve been wanting.

Say It Loud & Proud

Have something on your mind that you just have to get out? Live, laugh, love, anyone? Or maybe you just really like board games? How about a giant Scrabble board displayed on your wall? Grab some wooden squares, large stencils, and some fun paint. Go with a natural wood look or bright paint for a little extra fun – the scrabble board is your oyster! Check out this tutorial by Remodel-aholic for some inspiration and pointers.
