I recently moved into my first “grown up” apartment with Rowan, and have been excited to begin making it a home for us. DIYing has been the number one priority in decorating, and trying to keep costs as low as possible. Here is a mini “tour” of what I’ve worked on so far.
Above is my diy swing shelves, a great alternative for renters who can’t put holes into their walls. A DIY is coming your way! We also have a peg board proped up on the desk as a way to hold and organize craft supplies, photos and hair accessories. Above is a bamboo jewelry holder I created using small nails on a piece of dollarstore bamboo.
This is an easy DIY using electrical tape to create a cross pattern. You could do a variety of patterns, but this is a pretty easy and popular one!
This is our dining area just to the right of the entrance way. The trapestry is another diy, with a cool pattern from Lens Mill and bamboo rods to hold it up. The ‘Hi’ sign is created with nails and embrodery thread.
This lattace photo display was another super easy way to spice up your apartment. The lattace is from the dollarstore and it was easy to slip printed photos into the areas where the wood crosses over. The paper cranes were created out of old scrap booking paper and hung with fishing line.
Another swing shelf is in our living area, as well as DIY lamp (made with twine on the bottom and re-faced with some leftover fabric. We used push pins to hang old records.
One of the records in the line is a clock I made by taking the pieces from a dollarstore clock and adding them to the record.
That’s all for now!
