Home is a place where you feel love, peace, and comfort. It’s a place where you want to be each and every day. You, therefore, need to make your home as relaxing as you can. It’s not rocket science. With the following ideas, I hope you get some tricks on how to use readily available materials to enhance your home.
New Set of Coffee Tables
If you just cut down a huge tree in your backyard, and don’t have an idea where to take the salvaged logs, let’s put them to use. These logs are stylish, unique, and you are sure they will last ages. You will need few wheels, wood screws, a screw fastener, and some wood furnish. You will also need a good corded drill. This will help you fix the wheels easily and firmly.
Cut your logs to a desirable length and leave the bark. Using a sander, work on the tops of the logs to get a smooth finish. Drill on the other side to fix the wheels. Fasten the screws tightly and ensure the logs are firm and well balanced. Lastly, apply wood furnish and leave outside to dry before use.
Your Dog’s Cage
You may have wondered how and where to house man’s little friend; the dog. Did you know, with your old table you can get him a home as well? You can place the cage under the staircase. A small roll of wire mesh, a table and old curtains is all you need.
Line the three sides of your table with the curtains and leave the other one as the entrance to the cage.
Trim the wire mesh to a suitable size and fix it on one side of the table. Put a clip on the opposite side to make a fastener. According to scientists, dogs can help you cope with depression and other related conditions.
A Little More Décor
According to statistics by the wine institute, a huge amount of wine is consumed daily. If you have been storing wine bottles in a large box at the balcony, this is a wake-up call. These bottles are an inexpensive way to bring an exquisite look to your home. A little more creativity is needed to do this.
Get some ribbons, twine, spray paint, buttons, lace material, and painting brushes. Play around with all these items to come up with your style. Place the bottles in the hallway, your dining table, or that corner shelf in your living room.
A poorly lit room can be extremely dull. Illumination brings some warmth to our homes. You ought to come up with exciting ideas on how to make it even better. Place some painted round boxes around your ceiling bulb in your dining room. Just cut them precisely to your bulb’s dimensions. Install some bulbs on the walls. If you love color like I do, buy colored bulbs or spray them to your preference.
Swing at the Backyard
I recently visited a children’s park and saw these swing beds; so easy to make. You need sturdy fabric, preferably linen, steel bars, and chains. Fix four steel bars on the ground to make a rectangle swing bed.
Reinforce using concrete and leave to set for a few days ensuring you water the area for maximum strength. Fix the chains on each bar and tie your linen material. Now you can have your own park at home.
You no longer have excuses for having a boring home. I am sure you’ve realized that almost everything in the house can be useful. Create a haven, enjoy the process, and celebrate the results.

I’m a strong believer in lighting. I generally despise overhead lighting and livevthe jerks skirt you can get from cute and quirky lights inside. The backyard swing bed though….that’s going on the to do list pronto!

I’ve made home decor changes with lighting so that is one area I can say is within my skills. I would love to be able to make furniture but alas I’m challenged there.

I’d love to have a swing in my backyard! It’s one of my house improvement/goals that’s been in my list forever
Nice, simple ideas. Some pictures, esp. of the light bulbs project would have hit it out the park.
