Are you in the process of moving into your new home or apartment soon? Or perhaps you are simply looking to do a little remodeling to your existing living space?

The good news is that you will find a variety of affordable DIY ideas for redecorating and storage at very convenient prices. The best news of all is that you can all do it yourself!

Do it yourself decorating, or as we like to say affordable DIY, is more and more popular. DIY projects are perfect for those who wish to get a little crafty. They are also great for those looking to reorganize or embellish student headquarters for example or even small apartments without having to spend a fortune.


Wooden Crates

Having also become very popular, wooden crates are in big demand. In addition to being practical and affordable, they offer great furniture possibilities such as piling them up to make a nightstand, or a small shelf that can even be fixed to a wall. They are very practical and offer non expensive extra storage.

AFFORDABLE DIY CANDLES : Making your own candles

Here is one of my favorite DIY projects! Candles can be very expensive and we often pay way too much for them. Why not spend an afternoon making your own? All you will need is a double boiler, a few vases and cube wax. Personally I love making my own. It’s super simple and it makes me appreciate my candles even more!
