Seasonal Spruce-Up: Create A Picture-Perfect Gallery Wall
So, you’ve got art pieces lying around—maybe an ocean painting you tried when feeling artsy or that perfect summer vacation photo. Time to bring them out of the closet and onto a wall!
A gallery wall is not just a trendy home transformation; it’s a tribute to your creative endeavor and a trendy home décor feature.
Consider the layout. You don’t want to suffocate your art pieces by jamming them onto a tiny wall. But an expansive blank wall can also swallow your masterpiece whole.
Balance is key. Find matching frames for a sleek look, or dive into thrift shops and yard sales for quirky ones to create an eclectic style.
Just think about it: You could become the neighborhood’s Picasso with enough spunk and the right lighting.

This trick creates a seamless and modern aesthetic, blending the trims into the walls for an uber-chic effect. So, set your reservations aside and let the painting commence!
Fall DIY Home Decor Tip: Be Shelf-ish
We all yearn for more storage. Why not DIY your way into organized nirvana? Custom shelves are the ultimate confluence of utility and style. The good news?
You don’t need to be a woodworking whiz. Simple, well-finished wood planks can make your walls come alive.
For a no-fuss approach, scavenge for rustic wood pieces in reclamation yards. These babies need little to no polishing and can add that vintage charm you never knew you needed.
But hey, if you want to go all out, no one’s stopping you from crafting a bespoke shelf that screams your name. When you consider your Fall DIY home decor spruce up, this little addition makes it personal, and that’s as shabby as it is chic!
In the quest for a decluttered life and stylish walls, custom shelving is your BFF. These affordable DIYs blend style and utility, from reclaimed rustic wood to polished planks.
Seasonal Spruce-up Idea Will Make You Go Vertical
From succulents to herbs, the possibilities are endless. Mix and match different pots, or go monochrome; it’s all you, baby!
