Five indoor D.I.Y. projects you can do this weekend

Weekends are a great opportunity to get stuck into some D.I.Y. While two days may not seem like enough time to get much done, it’s amazing what you can achieve. Here are five doable D.I.Y. projects that you can start and finish this weekend, and make a huge difference to your home.

Wooden coat rack

If you’ve got jackets, hats and scarves lying around the house, then a wooden coat rack (pictured above) can sort that out. It makes a great addition to any home and gives you somewhere to hang your outerwear when you come home. It’s easy to knock one up and will make a big impression in your hallway, living area or bedroom.

As anyone with a study or home office knows, clutter has a way of growing. Before you know it, it’s out of control. A pegboard shelf can clear all that stuff off your desk. It’s easy to make and a handy storage unit for all your stationery or any items you want to put on display. Your space will look neater and you’ll feel a lot more organised.

Timber bedhead

You can rejuvenate a bedroom and turn a boring bed into a stylish centrepiece with a pegboard headboard. It provides storage space and support for when you’re sitting up reading a book or watching TV, plus timber is warmer and more comfortable than a brick or plaster wall. With just a few materials and a bit of inspiration, you can get it done before bedtime.

Shelving is a good way to keep a kid’s bedroom tidy. However, it doesn’t have to be boring. A triangle shelf makes a fun design feature to display their favourite toys. The kids can help you put it together and decorate it any way they like. You could also make a few for yourself and hang them up around the rest of the house.
