Grab a hammer and bring on the renovations!

Whether you’re an experienced do-it-yourselfer or a newbie, you can never go wrong with some renovations. There are so many different areas you can renovate in your home, and all of them will help improve the look and functionality of your space. You can renovate your kitchen, bathroom, living room, front porch, backyard patio, or even your bedroom. There are SO many different ideas to choose from, and you can even make a few smaller renovations rather than one major renovation. If you’re a beginner, we recommend going with a simple renovation project first. Something like a living room area rug or a new headboard for your bedroom can be a great place to start. These are both simple projects that will spruce up your home but won’t overwhelm you.

Paint your walls — and don’t stop there!

Paint is probably the first thing that comes to mind when you think of renovations, but it’s really just the beginning! You can do so much with paint on your walls, which makes it a great do-it-yourself project for beginners. Dip-dying your walls is one of the best projects you can take on. It is a simple process that can completely transform a room in a day. You can also add some texture to your walls by applying a coat of spackling paste, or you can add a stencil for some added design. Another great paint project is painting your ceiling. Painting a ceiling can be difficult but with the right technique, it can be easy and quick. There are many different techniques you can use to paint your ceiling, but you can also look for products that make it easier like paint pens or spray paints designed for ceilings.

Build a shelving unit you’ll actually use

A shelving unit can be an amazing addition to any room, but they can be difficult to build. That’s why we recommend it for do-it-yourselfers with some experience, but beginners can still take on this project with the right tools and a little bit of patience. We recommend building a floating shelf unit, which is a simple project that requires only a few supplies. You can build a floating shelf out of any material you’d like, but we recommend using plywood or MDF for an attractive, sturdy shelf. If you’re looking for a quick and easy shelf project, then you can also try building a standing shelf that you can use to hold books or decor items. This shelf is super simple and will only take you a few hours to complete.

Update your windows with blinds or curtains

One of the most noticeable things when walking into any room is the windows, which is why it’s important to update them when you can. One simple change you can make to update your windows is to upgrade your curtains or install blinds. Both window treatments are easy to install and will instantly change the look of any room. Plus, installing blinds or curtains is a do-it-yourself project that doesn’t require any tools or special skills. If you’re looking to go a step further and make your windows look brand new, then you can replace your old windows with new, modern ones. This is an expensive project to take on, but it’s something that will permanently change the look of your home for the better.

Decide on countertop materials

If you’re remodeling your kitchen, then the countertop material is a simple decision that you can make. You can choose between laminate, granite, quartz, or quartzite countertop materials. You don’t have to spend thousands of dollars on a new quartz countertop, though. If you’re on a budget and don’t want to splurge on quartz, you can always go with laminate or quartzite countertop materials instead. If you’re looking to save even more money, then you can always go with a DIY project that uses pallet wood to create the countertop. This project is easy to complete even if you’re a beginner, and it will only cost you about $50 in materials.

Install a ceiling fan

Installing a ceiling fan can bring some life and style to any room. Whether you want a ceiling fan in your bedroom, living room, or kitchen, it’s a simple and quick project for any do-it-yourselfer. Before installing a new ceiling fan, you should make sure that the wires in your room are long enough to reach the outlet. If they aren’t, you’ll have to hire an electrician to lengthen the wires for you. When installing your new ceiling fan, make sure you choose the right blade length, size, and style. You can also paint your ceiling fan blades if you want your room to have a pop of color.

DIY dry erase wall calendar

If you want a quick decoration project that will last throughout the year, then you can DIY a dry erase wall calendar. All you need to DIY this project is a cork board, some paint, and a metal palette. You can paint the cork board and metal palette any color or pattern you’d like, and they will look great as a calendar. Alternatively, you can pick up a pre-made dry erase wall calendar if you don’t want to DIY. They are fairly inexpensive and easy to mount to your wall.

Move some furniture around

Moving some furniture around around your home can be a quick renovation project that doesn’t require a lot of money or special skills. You can move furniture from one room to another, or you can even try moving furniture from outside into the indoors. There are many different ways to move furniture around your home, so there are many different projects to choose from. Moving furniture from outside to inside or vice versa is a quick and easy project that can be done in one day. You can move a patio table inside or move chairs from the backyard onto the porch.


There are many different DIY projects that can help improve your home, but they can also be overwhelming and difficult to take on if you’re a beginner. Make sure you choose a simple project if you’re just starting out with do-it-yourself projects. You don’t want to bite off more than you can chew. For each project we’ve listed above, make sure to read the instructions and plan ahead. These projects are quick and easy to complete when you’re prepared. These projects are great for beginners because they require only minimal tools and no special skills or experience.
