DIY Ideas For Each Wall of Your Home

Have a bare wall in your house? Don’t succumb to wallpaper! The blank space is the perfect canvass for some DIY wall art and a great way to show off your creativity and crafting skills.

From Yarn art to a Giant Button, we've got something for every room of your house!

1. Living Room

DIY Nail & Yarn Wall Art: All you need to do is write down something you really love, grab your hammer, nails, and some pretty yarn, and make merry work of it! Hammering that many tiny nails into your wall is not for the faint of heart (or most renters), but I think the rewards for bravery are well worth it.

2. Bedroom

DIY Headboard With LEDs: Mood lights always help to create romantic ambiance in a bedroom. That’s why it’s a good idea to put them into a headboard. You can make it as large as you want and paint to match your decor.

3. Kitchen

Wipe Off Weekly Menu Board: If you are a meal planner, but you usually forget what you planned for, put together this super easy wipe-off menu board to keep track of what’s for dinner each night! 
The best part about this project is that it is SO easy to change the paper if you decide to change your decor, or if you just get tired of it. So you’ll really use it for years to come!

4. Bathroom

DIY Chalkboard Door: When it comes to redecorating the bathroom, a little elbow grease can save a ton of cash.
Everyday objects can become focal points in your bathroom if you look at them with an artist's eye.

5. Kids Room

Handpainted Tree: If you love contemporary and modern design, then this project is perfect for the kids room. It is neutral with simple lines, but  playful and girly.

6. Craft Room

Giant Button Wall Art: 
Made with a large wooden circle, this simple DIY decor project is perfect for adding a splash of color to a small corner of your 
craft room.
You could even use a variety of circles to create a whole wall of adorable colored buttons! 

7. Playroom

Scrabble Magnet Board: Magnetize a Scrabble board and the pieces. Display it and play day in and day out with another word-loving friends.

Happy Crafting!


  1. Love that kids room.. so cute..!! Thanks for sharing this home designing post.

  2. Thank you for your kind words :)

  3. Saw a good idea on Pinterest too, branches in a frame used as coat hooks. I'm keeping that idea for when I redecorate my office. Except they will double as budgie perches rather than coat hooks. I like the button idea, and definitely the magnetic/blackboard ideas. So many ideas so little time!
