Do you want to change up the look of your home but don't want to break the bank? Whether you want a subtle change, or a drastic redecorate; these 3 DIY home decor hacks are a perfect way to get started!

1.Dress your Dresser

Have you redecorated your room and your dresser just doesn’t quite match anymore? Don’t fork out for a new one, this easy hack will have your dresser looking brand new and bespoke before you know it. All you need is some wallpaper and wallpaper glue. Start by measuring the front of each draw and accurately cut the wallpaper to the same size. Next, make sure you’ve removed the knobs and glue the paper on the front of each drawer. Once dry simply reattach your knobs and you’re good to go! If you fancy a real change why not paint the rest of the dresser as well.


2.Perfect Pillow Pocket

Tired of losing the remote? Do you have an old pair of jeans or trousers you’re about to throw out? Stop! Before you resign your old boot cuts to the charity shop cut off the back pocket. If you’re handy with a needle and thread, or not shy of a sewing machine; take the inner out of the cushion and simply stitch the lower three edges onto the front of your cushion. Don’t panic if sewing isn’t your thing grab some sandwich fusible fleece and put it between the jean pocket and cushion cover and simply iron the layers together! A perfect pocket to keep to the remote and new cushion design!

3.Funky Feature Wall

We’ve all dabbled with a feature wall once or twice before, whether it’s been successful or not. You’ve probably tried wallpaper or a solid colour but have you tried a stencil design? All you need is some good quality painters tape, a few well-matched paint colours and a wall! The first step is to make sure the wall is painted a light or white colour and left to dry. Then arrange your painter's tape on the wall to create desired geometric shapes. Grab your paints and carefully paint each section giving them as many coats as you deem necessary. Once the paint is dry carefully peel off the tape and you have a funky feature wall!
