Home and Garden DIY Ideas:
1. Use wood to create your own raised flower beds or vegetable gardens
If you don’t want to have to bend down in order to tend to your flower garden or vegetable garden, you may want to consider creating your own DIY raised flower beds. If you don’t have much experience building large wooden items, simply use a raised flower bed plan, which you can find online. If you’re keen to create your own DIY raised flower bed, you may want to opt for a plan which features a storage unit, which you can use to store your gardening tools.
2. Use pots or repurposed buckets to grow vegetables such as tomatoes
Contrary to popular belief you don’t have to create an entire vegetable garden in order to successfully grow vegetables. As some varieties of vegetables, as well as fruits, can be grown in inexpensive pots. If you don’t have any pots on hands you can also use punch holes into the bottom of a large bucket, to grow your vegetables or fruits inside. Examples of vegetables which thrive in pots and buckets include tomatoes, mushrooms, and beans.
3. Consider hanging flower baskets from your ceiling if you don’t have room for an outdoor garden
If you live in an apartment or in a property which doesn’t offer a backyard, it’s well worth hanging a few floral baskets from your ceiling, in order to grow your choice of flowers or herbs. In order to DIY your own hanging flower baskets simply hang a strong hook on your ceiling and use rope or a metal chain in order to secure a basket, which you can line with a plastic bag. As you don’t want to place your soil directly in your basket and it’s a far wiser idea to fill a basket which has been lined with plastic, with your soil.
4. Turn old wooden pallets into a coffee table
If you’re in need of a stylish new coffee table or a stand for your flat screen television, you may want to try to repurpose an old wooden pallet into a coffee table or a television stand. Once you’ve found a suitable wooden pallet you may want to consider painting your wooden pallet or coating your wooden pallet with a glossy wood stain. In order to create a chic coffee table or TV stand which costs less than $20.
5. Create your own floating bookshelves using wood and a few floating hooks
Instead of displaying your books in a traditional bookshelf which may take up a fair bit of room in your lounge, bedroom or study, you may be interested in creating your very own floating bookshelves, using a few thin wood panels and a couple of floating hooks. Which you’ll then balance your floating bookshelves on!
