Looking for ways to spruce up your home on a budget? Wait until you see these 7 easy DIY makeover projects that you can do in less than a day.

I love a good makeover project that you can do quickly and completely change a space.

It can have a huge impact and cost very little if you repurpose something you already have.

I can’t tell you how many pictures, frames, decor, and other items we have in storage that we are not using and taking up much-needed storage space.

Like I bought them several years ago, changed my decor and now, don’t know what to do with them.

Do you have stuff like that too?

Let’s get them out of storage, grab some paint, and give them a quick makeover.

Here are 7 easy ways to spruce up your home with an idea and some paint!

7 Easy DIYs to Spruce Up Your Home in Less Than a Day

I love a good before and after don’t you?

A short while ago, I shared some before and after total makeover projects.

But today?

I’m sharing some quick and easy DIY ideas of ways you can makeover those items you have laying around that you don’t know what to do with anymore.

Instead of tossing or re-homing these items, give them a quick facelift to coordinate better in your home.

And the best part?

These projects are easy to do and can be accomplished in less than a day.

So let’s get started!

Vintage Botanical Print Gallery Wall

This was one of my favorite projects because I used old picture frames that I had laying around from a gallery wall that I was no longer using.

And let me tell you, it was a big gallery wall, so I had a lot of frames to work with!

This do-it-yourself project was easy to do and very budget friendly because I had everything except the botanical prints on hand.

BTW you can purchase your own downloadable prints HERE if you want to do something similar.

The cool thing is you can print them in any size you want!

Painting the Piano

Have you ever painted a piano before?

Me neither, but I did it and it turned out amazing!

Before, it was very dark, the finish was pretty banged up and it really weighed down the room.

But now?

It’s light, bright and beautiful.

This project took a few hours to finish but it was totally worth it!
