Weekends are all about lie-ins, big breakfasts, a few cocktails and catching up with friends, sleep and house chores usually. They should really be a bit longer because by Sunday I feel like I wasted most of it just pottering around! So I've put together a list of totally achievable and not too costly DIYs that you could fit into your Saturday and Sunday without missing out on cocktails or brunch.
Let's start with my most recent project for our home. This "confetti art" hanging in our bedroom cost 75 cents as I already had a stash of confetti from workshops. A large A2 size sheet of paper, some pritt stick and randomly but carefully placed confetti, in whatever pattern you like. I had an empty Ikea frame waiting to be filled so the cost of this project including all supplies will be a bit more than 75 cents if you're starting from scratch but for the colourful and fun impact to your wall, it'll be so worth it.
When I bought this chest of drawers, it was already missing 3 knobs so immediately a bit of colour popped into my head. I picked up a set of 6 wooden knobs in Woodies a few months back for under €5 and used some paint I already had at home. This piece of furniture is a bit eclectic already with the different finish on the top drawer so I thought these little random pops of colour suited this piece quite well. Screw them in once the paint is dry and you're done!
When we were moving in, I made a trip to Ikea and had a very long and specific list but didn't anticipate that they'd be sold out of the copper pendants. So instead I bought the cream ones (which were cheaper anyway) and sprayed them with a copper spray paint. Go for a matt finish for a more authentic look.
This one might take a few hours but it's totally worth it for the finished product. Get all the steps to the wooden headboard DIY here.
Nancy's polkadot wall. This was a project I was dreading but actually was quite therapeutic in the end! That's probably got something to do with my mild OCD but if you wanna try it out all the steps and info is here.
