2020 has been a year of seclusion for most of us. We have spent more time at home in the past months than other years combined. But there has been an upside. DIY repairs are now taking much of our attention. Whether you are dry lining your walls, making curtains, creating a gallery wall, or putting up new wallpaper, this is the best time to start. That being said, this article will cover three simple DIY techniques you can do to give your home a perfect look. Ready? Let’s get started.
DIY Wooden Slab Key Holder
Are you tired of always losing your keys? Then this keyholder is just for you. Get yourself any wooden slab or piece of rectangular wood around the house. It can be from your garden or a portion of broken furniture. If this slab or piece of wood is untreated, it is advisable to seal it with polyurethane to avoid woodworms or other pests infesting at home. Once treated, you can then go ahead and paint it.
This is your chance to be creative. You can take it to the next level by including stickers that read “Don’t Forget Me” or “Pick me Up.” When done, drill holes into the wood and screw your key hooks into them. Hang your finished slab on your wall close to the door using adhesive glue or by hammering a pin in the back, and voila, you are done!
DIY Plant Cuttings Propagation
Gardening lovers, this is your lucky day! Although there are a few ways of propagating a plant from cuttings, the water method is best because it is simple yet effective. If you don’t know whether your plant can be reproduced using cuttings, check online to be sure. Firstly, propagate it in water. To do this, find the node on the plant’s stem and make a sizable cut below the node.
After, please place it in a container full of water and leave it in a warm location where there’s likely to be a lot of sunlight. You’ll likely notice roots growing after about a few weeks to several months. You can then introduce a “rooting hormone” in the water to speed up the process. After it has been rooted, gently take it out of the water and place it in a pot with fresh soil. Water it regularly and watch it grow.
DIY Wallpaper Covering
Are your old dishwashers, cabinets, or cupboards looking dull and unattractive? Well, this is a common problem in many households. Don’t worry; we have got you covered with a straightforward but practical unexpected application. Peel-and-stick wallpaper!
This fantastic material does not only cover ugly surfaces but gives your home a little more of an aesthetic feel due to the variety of patterns you can choose from. All you need to do is to literally peel it and stick or wrap it around numerous surfaces around the home. Easy-peasy huh?
