HOME DECOR IDEAS YOU CAN DO YOURSELF.

RYOBI TEAM

 

 


Sprucing up the old abode can be a lot of fun. But sometimes, you can't quite find what you're looking for. And other times, it's really easy to find what you're looking for, but the price tag is out of this world. Luckily, we've got the perfect solution. DIY. Have a read through our list of home decor ideas, pick your favourite and open up that RYOBI tool box.

 


MAKE YOUR OWN PICTURE LEDGE.

 
If you’re on the hunt for some home decorating ideas on a budget, this could be the perfect project for you. All up the materials will cost you around $10. You’ll need some wood (this can be scrap pieces leftover from another project), glue,
 

clamps and your choice of paint. Tools wise, you’ll need a RYOBI ONE+ Saw, Drill and Sander. Gather up your picture frames, pop them on your DIY display and show off what you’ve made to your friends and family.


MAKE YOUR OWN STATEMENT ART PIECE.

 
Stuck for a living room decorating idea? It can be tricky finding something to complement everything else you’ve got going on in your living room. But we’ve got just the solution. Head to a fabric store and pick out your favourite piece of fabric. Maybe it’s a floral number or a sleek Scandividan design. Then grab your RYOBI ONE+ Staple Gun, a pair of scissors or USB Lithium Power Cutter and a canvas and make your own statement art piece. Tip: measure the space on your wall so you know how big you want your canvas. You could also have a crack at making your own frame if you’re after a little more DIY.


MAKE YOUR OWN BLANKET LADDER.

 
These days rustic ladders are more commonly seen inside stylish living rooms than in the hands of a tradie. But unfortunately, the price of these ladders has skyrocketed since they became trendy. So why not save the money and have a crack at doing-it-yourself? All you need is a RYOBI ONE+ Saw, Sander, Drill and measuring tape from your tool bag. And some wood glue, screws, a paint brush and paint or stain.

MAKE YOUR HEADBOARD LOOK BRAND NEW.

 
There are a lot of good looking headboards out there, but unfortunately a lot of them come with a hefty price tag. Good news is, it’s actually a lot easier than you think to reupholster your own. All you’ll need is some multi-purpose fabric (make sure you get enough to stretch around the back), a RYOBI ONE+ Staple Gun, staples, fabric scissors and some sewing pins (you’ll only need to do a little bit of sewing) and you’re good to go!


MAKE YOUR OWN COUCH SLEEVE.

 
If you’re short on space in your living room, a couch sleeve is a great substitute for a coffee table. Never heard of a couch sleeve? Essentially, they sit on the arm of your couch like a ‘sleeve’, so you can rest your coffee mug... or glass of wine on it. The key to making it as stable as a coffee table is to measure out the length of the arm of the sofa before cutting the wood. Here’s a list of the materials you’ll need: wooden board (of your choice) cut into three equal lengths, a piece of thin plywood, wood glue, wood stain, grade 0000 steel wool (you’ll need this to lightly buffer your wood after you’ve applied a coat of wood stain) and polyurethane. And tools wise, you’ll want a: RYOBI ONE+ Drill, Sander, measuring tape, hole saw, clamps and a pencil.

 


MAKE A DRIFTWOOD ORB.

This is a one-tool-wonder. All you need is a RYOBI ONE+ hot glue gun, glue sticks, an inflatable beach ball and lots and lots of short pieces of driftwood. It makes for a great table decoration or you can even hang it from your ceiling. Fairy lights are a nice addition, too.

MAKE YOUR OWN FLOATING BOOKSHELF.

If you’re looking for a super easy home decor idea, you’re going to like this one. A floating bookshelf. All you need is RYOBI ONE+ Drill, velcro, screws and corner brackets. Stick some velcro to the bracket for extra grip, drill it into the wall (with approval from your landlord, of course) and stack some books horizontally on top. There you have it. The books will look like they’re floating all by themselves. Magic.

 


MAKE AN ENTRYWAY ORGANISER.

 
An Entryway Organiser is one of those things that you never really knew had a name. Until now. Essentially it’s the thing you hang by your front door to hold all your belongings, like keys, jackets, hats, etc. If you’re looking for a short one hour
 
DIY project, something that’ll cost you around $10-$15, look no further. Materials wise, you’ll need scrap wood, ceiling hooks, wall hooks, stain, screws and nails. And from your tool box, you’ll want a RYOBI ONE+ Sander and Drill.

 


MAKE A DIY AIR PLANT HOLDER FOR YOUR WALL.

 
Would it really be a home decor article without at least one indoor plant idea? Absolutely not. So here we have it. A DIY air plant holder you can hang on your wall using mounting strips. You’ll need scrap wood, long enough to fit behind the hook and terrarium, wood finish, small plant hanger hooks, screws, a hanging glass terrarium, picturing hanging mounting strips, string and then lucky last: air plants and dried moss. You can also add some pebbles and coloured sand to the bottom of the terrarium too. Tools wise, you’ll need a RYOBI ONE+ Saw, Sander and Drill and measuring tape.


There you have it. Nine home interior design ideas to spruce up your space. Remember to check out the full RYOBI ONE+ range for any tools you might need to start on your next project.
