Easy DIY Projects For Your Bedroom

Everyone loves to save money while feeling crafty at the same time. There are many “Do It Yourself” projects that are easy to make and will give your bedroom unique and interesting touches that are also inexpensive! Here are seven DIY tips for the bedroom in your Ross Bridge home.

  1. Wooden Tray

When you want to have a lazy morning with breakfast in bed, your very own wooden tray can hold snacks, your cup of coffee and a book. You’ll need to make a trip to Lowes or Home Depot first where you’ll be able to find all of the supplies. Wood, hardware and stain are the only things you have to purchase in order to make this easy project!

  1. Patterned Canvas Baskets

These baskets are really practical and can hold so many different things. They are also foldable so when you’re not using them, you can easily put them in storage so you don’t create clutter in your bedroom. All you’ll need to make these are canvas baskets (usually found at dollar stores), stencils in any design you’d like and fabric paint. This is an easy, therapeutic project with a spectacular outcome!

  1. Dotted Vanity Trays

Making a couple of these to leave around your house will keep you organized in a stylish, simple way. All you’ll need is some craft paper, a small tray in a shape you like and gold paint. These are great bedroom accessories to hold all of your jewelry, make up and nail polish.

  1. Yarn Initials

Big initials are very in right now as a decoration to place on your desk, bedside table, your bookshelf or even hang on the wall. All you need for this DIY project is yarn in a color of your choice and cardboard.

  1. No-Sew Pillowcases

Instead of buying a new throw pillow for your bed, try making an easy no-sew pillowcase in your favorite fabrics. You’ll need a pillow or pillow insert, 3 safety pins and fabric cut accordingly. This is a great way to spruce up your bed whenever you feel like it without spending a fortune!

  1. PVC Shoe Rack

Can’t find the perfect shoe rack to hold your ever-growing collection? All you’ll need to make your own is pipe glue and the right size PVC pipes that fit your shoes. What’s great about this shoe rack is that it is endlessly customizable- you can always add to it! Now you have the perfect excuse to go buy that pair you’ve had your eye on.

  1. Rolling Storage Bins

These are great to put underneath your bed for a stylish looking way to store things. All you’ll need to make these crates are trunk handles or cabinet pulls, wood stain, casters and wood. Depending on how you want to decorate them you may need other supplies as well. Now your storage will be easy to access and look cute all at the same time!
