DIY Apartment Decor


Crafting Materials on a Table

Making your home feel like your own doesn’t have to be a burden. Decorating an apartment is definitely a process and isn’t going to be finished all at once. This isn’t a bad thing, however. As you take time to decorate and pull your whole apartment together, you can be sure you’re choosing things you love. Read this week’s The Townes at Mill Run Blog for ideas for doing just that!


Have only things in your home that you really love and that spark joy in your heart. Even things like a toaster or bath towel can be something you love. If you’re in a rush, choose affordable items that can be replaced without feeling like you’ve wasted a ton of money if you change your mind later. Investment pieces will go a long way and can last you a really long time. Choosing high quality items may not be part of your budget, but you can certainly take time to save and work toward those items.


As you’re decorating on a budget, you don’t have to choose things you don’t like. DIY projects are a great way to put your own spin on a craft. Most are pretty inexpensive to make, so you won’t have to spend a ton of money. Be creative with the colors and prints you choose for your home projects so you can enjoy them.


We liked this idea for a blanket ladder that you can make yourself! A blanket ladder gives a rustic touch to any home. They serve a purpose and they are beautiful to look at. We found some instructions at Domestically Speaking.


A DIY Hexagon Shelf has a little bit of a boho vibe, and we think it would go perfect on a bathroom or bedroom wall. The author of this idea suggests placing a small plant inside. Find the instructions here on Her Campus.
