Simple DIY Ways to Spruce Up Your Space in 2012

1 2 3 4 5

I’m so tired of photos in magazines and blogs that show flawless modern apartments. Too bad most of us have a nonexistent décor budget put aside to make our homes photo-worthy. And even if you do have the cash to revamp your rooms, where should you even start? These small DIY projects can give any cluttered space a brand-new look, and you can do them all with supplies you have around the house. Don’t wait till spring to clean! Your perfectly organized apartment awaits (and you’re stuck inside, anyway!).

-Tricia Carr

Add clear storage vessels to existing shelves with CraftinessisNotOptional.com’s Under the Shelf Jar Storage Tutorial. Now you’ll have a place for small items that clutter countertops and tables like headphones, loose change, hair ties, biz cards, etc. Don’t go out and buy baby food just for this project—any small- to medium-sized jar will work. Get creative and use different sized jars for a jumbled, artsy look!

    I have the exact vase from #4 and now I know what I’m going to use it for. This is a great idea.
