4 Rent Friendly DIY Projects

1. Painted Dining Room Chairs: If you have eclectic taste, or want to create a focal point with your dining room table, pick up some thrift store chairs and give them a makeover! Adding a coat of paint is an easy way to create a cohesive look and adding life to furniture without breaking the bank.
2. Update Your Curtains: Out with the old and in with the new! If your curtains are a solid color, switch them for a trendy patterned set. If you’re a novice with a sewing machine, you can create your own design on a solid set rather than buying something new.
3. Incorporate a Multi-Level Cart: No matter the size of the room, multi-level carts can serve multiple purposes. From a portable kitchen cart, cocktail or entertainment cart, to something the kids can use for toy storage – the possibilities are endless. Depending on your style you can add color with paint to create something that really stands out or add a small amount of personality with mod podge and adhesive paper.
4. Chalkboard planters: Growing your own herbs or plants in an apartment is easy to do, but sometimes the planter pots are boring or you might want to label the herb. Pick up some chalkboard paint and either paint the entire pot or create a design large enough for you to write the plant’s name.
These are only a few of the ideas we have for you and we’d love to see your creations or how you’re incorporating your personality into your apartment. Show us what you’ve done on Facebook!
