Home improvements don’t have to be major, or costly. Sometimes little changes make a huge impact. Be creative with your ideas and your materials, and you can add original touches to your home the DIY way. 

When a local charity rejected her offer of old dome ceiling lamps, Balatong came up with this ingenious way to make use of the fixtures. She created beautiful planters out of them. These planters will bring a little bit of outside into any room.

Are you in need of a low-cost headboard for your bed? Look at this beautiful headboard by mcmakeit. It’s made of old wooden pallets, and her only cost was $6 for the screws!
Here’s a simple project that makes a big impact. Chocolate_Jo needed a place to hang her belts. She found a rusty old rake at a garage sale, spiffed it up with some unused jewelry, and now has a one of a kind shabby chic belt holder.
How about this for creative lighting? Using some large aluminum cans and pendant light kits from Ikea, binkyrmt made these custom punched pendant shades.
Ready for something major? How about some faux granite countertops, like these from FoxyBlue. She transformed her laminate countertops using a sea sponge and layers and layers of polyurethane for high gloss and durability. In only 12 hours, her kitchen was transformed in a big way!
