Please check back next week for Week 4’s installment – Cheap and Easy Feature Walls.
If you’re like me, you’ve got to have a house project on the go at any one time. I’m literally itching to get started on the next as soon as I complete the last! This week I’ll be sharing ideas of small Quarantine DIY Projects you can do with paint. This one focusses on how to paint an easy feature wall.
This is a super simple DIY project, that I dare even the most inexperienced DIY-er to do!
It’ll probably take you 1-2 hours to complete, depending on the size of your wall and your level of experience. Afterwards you’ll have a transformed room for less than $100! Worth a try right!?
For my feature wall paint project, I used the spare bedroom. These rooms have been somewhat neglected since we moved in. A lick of paint and the furniture from our old house and they were good to go. We kept the Golden Oak windows and trim, but after watching countless hours of HGTV, I’ve come to realize that white is definitely the way to go with trim. So we also replaced it during this mini-makeover.
So that the wall decoration didn’t get lost on the dark wall, I chose to swap the existing decor for some white trophies which were unused from another part of the house. They definitely stand out on the dark wall.
Here are 7 simple steps on how to paint a feature wall. You can save this to your Pinterest board to find it easily in future.
I’ve also compiled a handy Pinterest board of painting pro tips. You can check it out by clicking on the Pinterest link to my profile or here.
I’d love to see your mini-makeovers of easy painted feature walls. Share them with me in the comments below or on social.
Home gyms tend to accumulate many pieces of equipment, and don’t always have the space for furniture to store them in. In addition gym storage equipment can also look a bit unsightly in a residential setting. To keep your home gym looking stylish and organized, here’s my round-up of the best practical yet stylish home gym storage ideas available at Amazon.com.

This wall storage basket adds some rustic charm to your home gym, while being super practical. It comes in four sizes and three different colors, and is great for storing small items to keep your home gym looking clean and tidy. Priced between $9 to 18 each, they’re an affordable and stylish way to bust the clutter in your home gym.
One item you may have in your home gym is a yoga mat for floor exercises, or a foam roller for warm-up or cool-down. These can be tricky to store and keep tidy, but with a wall-mounted rack like this one at just $28.99 you can keep them organized and your floors clutter free.
If you have the space, and have a lot of equipment, this storage cubby by ClosetMaid makes a great furniture option. Available in 3, 4, 6 or 9 cube options, and in four different colors – white, black walnut, dark chestnut and weathered grey, there are plenty of options to fit your space. Prices range from $63 to $165.
Organizing your fitness bands on the wall means they’re readily accessible and easy to find the right one. I like these individual wooden hooks, as they’re stylish and practical. Available in beech or walnut, and in different pack sizes priced from $13 to $39.
Likewise to tie in with your new wall baskets, you can also get a basket with hooks, for multi-purpose storage options. Available in bronze or industrial grey finishes from $20 to $27 each.
Dumbbells can be stored in the large furniture cubby recommended earlier. Or if you prefer to have a specific place to store them, you can opt for one of these racks specifically designed for dumbbells. The first option is $16.99 and is suitable for lighter weights. The second option from CAP Barbell is $49.99 and suitable for heavier weights.
Fitness balls can be large and cumbersome to store neatly. I like this ball base for a single ball priced at $17.99 as it stops the ball rolling around while being stored. It can even be used as a stability enhancer when exercising with the ball.
