DIY Ideas: Upgrade Your Walls

The dog days of summer are upon us, and if you’re spending more time indoors trying to beat the heat, you might be thinking it’s time for a new look when it comes to your décor.The good news is that there are TONS of projects out there that almost any amateur home painter can manage on a budget.

Here a few quick ideas to get your creative juices flowing:

  1. Patch up your walls

Whether it’s holes from your kids hanging posters on the wall or smaller nicks and scratches, patching up your walls is a quick fix that can make a huge difference. All you need to do is clean off the surface, fill the hole with spackle, and then smooth and wait for it to dry. The entire process, drying time included, shouldn’t take more than a few hours.

  1. Hang some new pictures

Whether you want to bring the focus to your favorite piece of art or create an at-home gallery, photos and artwork bring character to your space. Aside from a few nails or screws, you won’t need much for this project.

  1. Experiment with wallpaper

You’re not alone if you’ve always thought this was a job for the professionals. But in reality, hanging wallpaper is relatively easy. This is a job for two people, though. It can be tough to accomplish on your own, especially if you’re using regular wallpaper, not the peel-and-stick kind. Dedicate a weekend to this project, and start fresh on Monday with a revamped space.

So, what are you waiting for?
