Project #1: Give the Second Life to Wooden Surfaces with Coconut Oil

Chances are you bought your coffee table or other wooden furniture in your home a long time ago, so they don’t look as fresh as they were. There is, however, a way to revive them. This easy way involves using coconut oil.

Besides the oil, you need smooth cloth and a tablespoon. To begin, apply coconut oil to the wooden surface and then wipe it using the cloth in a circular motion. You’ll see immediate results because the oil will penetrate the wood and give it an entirely new look.

Project #2: Dress Your Bed “Hotel Style”

The secret of a glamorous and stunning hotel room is a nice bed. That’s why every hotel tries to make beds look nice and comfy so the guests feel like home. You can dress your bed like they do it hotels as well.

For that, you don’t need to buy expensive bedding. Adding more pillows to create more layers will make it look cozy and nice, and if you pick appropriate colors and fabrics, your bed will have that “hotel style” look.

Project #3: Make Switch Plates More Elegant

If elegance is your goal, this project is for you. Giving your switch plates a makeover to make them look more elegant is one of good ways to get the look you want. For example, you can visit a thrift store and buy some small picture frames that you’d like to use as frames for switch plates.

We recommend you take one of your switch plates with you to make sure that everything will fit nicely. It’s okay if colors of the frame you selected and your switches don’t match – you can always spray paint them.

Project #4: Hide TV Wires

If you have a mounted TV at your home, you are probably familiar with this problem: there is a bunch of wires cluttering the space around the TV and laying on the floor. Many people try different methods to hide the wires and make sure they don’t run the décor.

For example, you can go to the craft store and purchase some covers like a shower curtain rod to hide them. Make sure that you have enough length to hide all those pesky wires.

P.S. Shower curtain road works perfectly with a mounted TV.

Project #5: Rope Vases

This DIY project was recently featured on Creative Chicago and it received a lot of feedback. The vase is actually an empty can (tomatoes, kidney beans etc.). By winding the rope around the can and securing it with hot glue, you can get a great vase for your pencils and flowers. Very cheap and simple.
