Mason jars make gorgeous dainty vases. Luxe it up with a fresh coat of matte black, gold or silver paint. Tip: Use acrylic or enamel paints for a long-lasting paint job that won’t wash off when in contact with water.

Clay knobs

A classy door or shelf knob that looks expensive but costs less than $10? We’re sold. All you need is some air-dry clay (like the ones you’d get to fill in holes in your walls), knob bases that you can find in hardware stores and gold spray paint.

Light switch frames

All you need to jazz up cumbersome light switches are photo frames. You can even paint and embellish your frames if you like something a little more snazzy.

Hanging wood table

This DIY requires a little more work and skill, so it’d be good to have a friend around to help you. You’ll need an electric drill to create holes in the wood, and a hook screwed on to your ceiling to hold the table — the key is to make sure everything is secure so nothing goes crash, bang in the middle of the night.

Bathroom rack magazine holder

This is a chic and minimalistic way to keep your favourite reads (like, ahem, ELLE). Plus, the magazine covers are designs in itself, so you wouldn’t even need a painting to add interest to your space.

We love Pinterest. It’s a great place to get fashion, beauty and — our favourite — home décor inspiration from all over the Internet and collate it to create our very own mood board. The problem with a lot of Pins is, they look great on our screens, but it's almost impossible to make them work in real life. So we scoured the site in search for the some of the simplest (yet still incredibly pretty) home décor ideas that even the laziest, most impatient, and most art- and-crafts-deficient amongst us can do at home.
