Fabulous and Easy DIY Ideas

I'm always on the lookout for fabulous and easy DIY projects, as let's face it if they're not easy 9 times out of 10 we won't try them!

The below pic comes from a fantastic website called Apartment Therapy. Apartment Therapy showcase a lot of home interiors, decorating ideas and also DIY projects that their readers send in.

I love these DIY stairs, as the owner has re-used the top of the stairs (that you walk on) and given them a light sand and varnish and then painted the face of each stair in this amazing Teal blue. So now when you view the staircase as a whole, you will walk into an 'ocean' inspired work of art!

Another one of my ALLTIME favourite DIYers is Sarah Dorsey from Sarah M. Dorsey Designs. Sarah is an interior designer, a graphic designer and a budding DIYer all in one! She has sooo many tutorials on her blog that all transform a drab piece of furniture into one that's rad!

The below DIY is simple and easy and peps up a plain white Ikea rug into an indigo blue Moroccan haven. Check out the full post here.


My last DIY is from a blog called Oh Happy Day now doesn't the name just make you smile!! I found this picture on Pinterest and traced it back to this blog and it's a must read as it's SO easy peasy.
Again, a beige Target table cloth can be made over into one of pink delight! It also opens your mind up to many other different colourways and patterns that can be painted on a simple table cloth. Go on check them out!! 

So, if you're an avid DIYer I would love to see what you have created yourself. Email your pics to and I will share these in an upcoming post.

Happy DIYing for the weekend!
