How did you spend the past weekend? You probably thought, like many of us, how tired you were during the week, you reiterated to yourself that you really need to rest, and the weekend passed without you understanding. However, you could use the weekend more efficiently by implementing a few ideas that come to your mind. Still, you are not too late. Here are 10 different DIY examples you can do in a week to breathe new life into your home or office:
Pineapple shaped serving board
The service is as important as the preparation of a meal or dessert. If you want to serve the things you have prepared with care, but do not have a lot of budget for it, you can do it yourself. Shape your aging cutting board into a pineapple shape and draw a strip of lint in the middle. Here is a great serving board for you!
Tabletop lava lamp
Want to spice up your boring desk a little bit? Put some water in a bowl and mix it with a few drops of food coloring. Fill 3/4 of the glass bottle in your hand with water and then add the water that you colored with food coloring. Let the colored water settle to the bottom of the bottle. Throw one tealight candle at the bottom of the bottle. Break one alka seltzer tablet and drop it into the bottle. Then close the bottle and let the fun begin...
Don't throw out the boxes
You can actually turn the boxes of some products you buy from the market into a stylish storage container. With a rubber band on the boxes, you can get a more fun look for your lunch that you take to the office.
Watercolor effect pillow
If you want to spice up your living room, you can achieve this with a few pillows. After painting your unused white t-shirt with acrylic paint, you can sew it on your old throw pillow in the living room. It is up to you to create the pattern you want.
Need a new location for your cactus or notebooks? It is possible to do this with a piece of wood and a few pieces of craft rope. The rest is up to your creativity. Drill holes at the four corners of the piece of wood and then thread kraft rope through these holes. Equal length ropes will act as a hanger, so you can hang your new shelf on a nail on your desk.
You can make a pencil case that will add joy to your office table by cutting a piece of foam from the stationery properly and then coloring it as you wish. First decide the shape of your pencil holder, then make the side surfaces. Make the last base and glue it.
