Basic DIY Home Improvement Projects


If you are a homeowner, surely there are some things you would like to do on your home to sort of customize it and improve it.  Improving your home does not necessarily mean spending thousands of dollars to get the things you want as there are some basic home improvement projects that you can actually do yourself.  These projects are not only for convenience purposes, but they can also help in accentuating your home to make it look more adorable.

These days, you can find loads of stuff on the internet that teaches you how to make things yourself with some of the stuff you can find in your own home, lying around and unused.  Although some of these home improvement projects are not for everybody, they can actually help you spend some of your spare time during the weekends doing something fruitful.  Once you have finished your projects, they will give you a sense of fulfillment.  Although they may not always look professionally made, it is always the effort you put into them that counts.  Here are some basic DIY home improvement projects you can do yourself.

DIYFloating Garden – if you have plenty of used large plastic soda bottles or water bottles, you can actually create a floating garden using them as your primary material.  First, you need to collect the plastic bottles you will be using and then remove their labeling.  Once that is done, cut a center lay the bottle flat down and create a rectangular hole (5 inches x 4 inches) on the main body.  Do this with all of your bottles than place a few small holes at the other end for water drainage.  Once finished, get a strong piece of nylon string and tie the ends where you will end up with a sort of rope ladder.   Stack a few on your backyard wall then fill the bottles with earth.  Finally, put some seeds inside the plastic bottles or some small plants you want to grow as you now have a floating garden.

Leftover Paint – if you have some leftover paint that you think is enough to do some project, look around the home where you think you can use the paint.  Try experimenting painting your home’s back door trim, especially if it is a contrast to its current color.  If the paint color is a weird color and will not match well with the door, try looking for some structures or fixtures around your garden that you can help accentuate with the paint that you have.
