Getting jobs done around the house can sometimes be put at the bottom of the list of priorities. However, as a majority of people find themselves at home for the foreseeable future, it's the perfect opportunity to do those DIY tasks that you've wanted to get done for ages. Here's a few ideas to to inspire you. 

Frame and arrange your artwork

We're not sure about you but we've all got a couple of prints lying around still housed in their original packaging that we have been meaning to frame for the longest time. This is the ideal opportunity to give your gallery wall an overhaul and frame those prints you've long rejected. 

Paint your radiators

Be inspired by Hayley from @iamhayleystuart and give your radiators a little makeover. How amazing does her sparkly new pink radiator look against her navy kitchen wall? Either make a statement and paint your radiators a funky colour or simply give them a refresh with white paint to bring them back to life.

Put up that shelf

It's a cliché but why not use this time to put up that pesky shelf you've been meaning to do? Take this time to refine your home and make sure it brings you as much joy as possible. Once you've put it up in the right place you can take pleasure styling it perfectly.

Style up your dresser

Dressing tables and chest of drawers can often become a dumping ground for things we just want to quickly put down somewhere. But, because this surface is clearly on show for everyone to see it consequently makes the entire room look messy. Take your time to think about how you want to style your dressing table to make it look chic and personal to you. Be inspired by My Furniture and add in lots of greenery and perhaps cosy up your chair with a faux fur cushion or throw.

Refresh the skirting boards

Refresh your entire home by repainting the skirting boards. Admittedly, not the most fun job in the world but a great DIY project nonetheless. You may think they don't need sprucing up, but once you've given them a lick of paint, they'll completely freshen up the room.
