Repurposing items from your home might be the most budget-friendly way to make your home special. Instead of buying an expensive plant holder, use a tiny ladder to place your beautiful plants! Need some extra wow-factor in your living room? Then pick up the paint box and start coloring your plant holder whatever shade fits your room's color scheme.


I bet you never thought it can be so easy to create a beautiful plant holder using a simple ladder!


A great way to showcase your dearest memories and add some personality to your workroom! A simple memo board can change the look of your desk entirely and it costs just under €10 at IKEA. This board allows you to hang pictures, fairy lights, postcards from your favorite holiday, and more. Just let your creativity flow!

Before you put your used cans in the recycling bin, know that you can upcycle them in a very unexpected, yet stylish way! Cans can be transformed into beautiful pots for your flowers, which can make a very pretty addition to your decor. Yes, you heard that right - cans can become beautiful pots that you can use as decorations in your home! Start by rinsing the cans clean, then cut the top completely, and file the sharp edges. Then, simply measure the can height and cut your favorite wrapping paper (or even wallpaper) to fit the can and secure it with double-sided sticky tape and... Voilà!
