Some popular DIY home decorating ideas include embellished lamp shades, fabric window shades and patterned furniture. These projects are great for adding color and stylish flair to rooms.
Embellished lamp shades are designed with watercolor or acrylic paint. Stencils or paint sponges make it easy to create a flawless look, with artist brushes used for intricate designs. Dress up the lampshades with colorful shapes, patterns or artwork to match the decor in the room.
Fabric window shades are a decorative DIY home project, made with fusible web and fabric. Iron the fusible web to the back of the fabric. Let the fabric cool, then iron the fabric on the window shade. The fusible web makes the fabric stick to the shade. Another option is to glue a wide strip of colored or patterned fabric to the lower section of window shades to give them a trimmed look.
Patterned furniture is a creative DIY project that requires sandpaper, paint, glossy finish, a paint brush and stencils. First sand a dresser, coffee table or other furniture piece to prepare it for painting. Use a paintbrush to cover the furniture in a pale color. After the paint dries, use the stencils to create painted patterns on the furniture. Add a glossy finish to give the piece a smooth appearance.
