DIY Projects That You Can Try at Home
Bored at home with nothing to do? Try some out of the box activities with these DIY projects you can try at home. Fend off the boredom by being crafty.

We’ve all had a lot of time to spend at home recently. And if I’ve learned anything from this whole experience, it’s that I run out of things to do. Quickly. I’m always needing something new to do, and in the process, I’ve found a few DIY projects that you can try at home. Hopefully, there’s a thing or two that’ll stand out.

Reupholster Some Old Furniture

Is your trusty old furniture falling apart? Don’t mourn it. Sometimes all it needs is a new coat of fabric. If you’re unfamiliar with the process, or if it’s just been a while, then start on something small and disposable. Upholstery comes with some pitfalls that usually trap first-timers, so watch out for those as you breathe new life into sturdy old furniture.

If you want to decorate the living room, or have a new theme for your own bedroom, shop around for fabrics and mix and match. It might sound like a daunting task at first—but upholstery, once you get the hang of it, is just another DIY project that you can try at home any day the mood strikes you.

Build New Shelving

If your walls have a distinct lack of decoration or if you just need more space to store various things, try installing some shelving. A lot of us have some of that cheap wire shelving, whether in our pantries or just around the house. It’s good as a temporary fix, and now you can try to make shelving of your own.

It can be the typical type of wood at Home Depot, or you can get creative and use pieces of old doors or cabinets. Secure them to the walls and fill them with decorations to change up the look of your house.

Create Your Own Backyard Getaway

Home can be cozy—but feeling like you’re trapped there can be stressful. Getting a break every now and then from the indoors is healthy, and it’s as easy as walking into the backyard. Create a little social gathering area in your yard by setting up a fire pit.

All it takes are some concrete retaining wall blocks to form the enclosure of the pit. Then surround the area with materials that won’t catch fire, such as pebbles, and materials that you want to catch fire. Invite over some friends or family to roast marshmallows and stargaze.

Sitting at home doesn’t have to be an exercise in boredom. There’s plenty of things lying around the house waiting to be fixed or updated.
