DIY projects can be an affordable way to make your home even more amazing. But if you are new to the world of DIY it can feel intimidating to tackle your first project. Starting with something really simple will help you to build confidence and skills, so that in the future you can take care of nearly any DIY project that you put your mind to.

Replace Your Doorknobs 

Changing out your doorknobs can have a surprisingly big impact on the look of your home, and add to its safety if you haven’t changed your locks since you moved in. You can change the doorknobs on the interior of your house and also on the main exterior doors. Choose door knobs in a style that works well with your house and that can add to your aesthetic. Changing out your doorknobs should be as easy as loosening and tightening a few screws, so it is a great first project to get you feeling confident before tackling a bigger job.

DIY Projects: Painting 

Another easy project is painting your home, which can have a major impact on the look and feel of your entire house. The great thing about painting is that even if you do a spotty job, another coat can take care of the problem for you. Preparing your walls can help the painting job turn out better. Doing the prep work of taping and priming if needed can really make the job a lot easier and help you to enjoy the process a little bit more.

Build Shelving 

Built-in shelving can really elevate your home and make it easier for you to decorate and store the things you love. Building a shelf might feel intimidating, but it is actually a pretty easy project. You can even buy a shelf kit that will walk you through the process and include all the necessary pieces. Extra shelving is a nice addition to any room, and you can choose a style and look of shelf that works well with the design you have in mind for your space.

Starting a DIY project can be a great way to build a sense of pride in your home. There is no project too small to be worth learning how to do. With each new project you tackle, you gain important skills that will help you to more effectively navigate home ownership!
