Everyone Can Do It - 20 DIY Projects - Part 4

Are you interested in decorating your home with some DIY projects? However, when it comes to starting, it can be intimidating. Bob Vila Magazine, known for its strong house projects focus, has published an article on 20 DIY projects that anyone can do.

Let's explore some of these projects and add my personal opinions.

10. Building Shelves

Installing shelves on one wall of your home is both aesthetically pleasing and practical as a DIY project.

Choosing the right height is crucial. Surprisingly, after installation, shelves may appear higher or lower than expected. Therefore, it's advisable to measure the height beforehand by using a ruler at the desired location. When installing shelves, as mentioned in the previous post, use a stud finder to locate studs and install brackets at those positions. However, to prevent shelves from sagging over time, using brackets during installation is also a good idea.

11. House Garden

This ties into the content from Part 1. Creating a garden where you can grow herbs or vegetables in a corner of your house is an exciting DIY project. Personally, I haven't lived in a place with a yard until I came to Illinois, so my knowledge and experience in this area are limited. However, based on what I've read, choosing the right location is crucial. The garden should receive a minimum of 8 hours of sunlight each day for optimal growth.

12. Mirror Frame Replacement

Simply replacing the frame of a mirror that occupies a wall in your house can significantly alter the atmosphere.

You can either repaint the existing frame or entirely replace it, which is a great DIY solution. Replacing a mirror frame is not a difficult task. Kits are available for purchase, or you can buy materials from hardware stores like Home Depot and assemble them to fit your desired length.

In the next post, I'll continue to introduce more DIY projects that anyone can do.
