Fun DIY projects to make your apartment feel more like home

You’ll love walking through the front door at our Plymouth apartments. Each unit is spacious, luxurious, and welcoming – the perfect blank canvas for you to transform into your “home.” Your home needs to be your oasis, your sanctuary, your place to de-stress and unwind – that’s why personalizing it is so important. If you need a little inspiration on how to turn your apartment into a home, without breaking the bank, here are some awesome DIY projects for you to try while living at Quinn at Plymouth.


DIY Farmhouse Table

Everyone loves a rustic but chic farmhouse table, but they can be expensive when you buy them from a furniture store. Luckily, you can actually build one yourself for way cheaper, and it looks like you got it from Chip and Joanna Gaines. Thanks to this easy-to-follow DIY tutorial by Love Grows Wild, you can have a gorgeous farmhouse table that truly makes a statement and looks gorgeous in your living room.


Paint a Statement Wall

As mentioned earlier, our apartments in Plymouth are a blank canvas when you walk through the door. The perfect canvas for a bright (or not-so-bright, depending on your style) color on a wall or two. Give your apartment a pop of color by picking one wall in your home and painting it a different color than all the rest. It’s eye-catching and brings your home to life. Then, decorate it with photos or pieces of decor that bring a smile to your face every time you look at it.


Give Life to Old Mirrors

When you hang mirrors in smaller spaces, it gives the illusion that the room is actually bigger than it really is. Head over to a thrift store or bargain store and see if you can find different shapes and sizes of mirrors to hang on your wall – either together in a cluster or spread throughout your home. Don’t like the trim or frame of the mirror? No problem! Cover the glass with tape or paper and spraypaint the frame or trim in your favorite color or texture – think metallics, muted pastels, or whatever fits your style.


Crate TV Stand

Having furniture that also doubles as storage is the perfect way to utilize space in our Plymouth apartments. Get your hands on some old wooden crates, stain them to your favorite shade, and stack them sideways to create a boho-farmhouse-inspired TV stand. You can use the open storage areas for books, decor, photos, plants, or whatever else you’d like to display underneath. Head over to Cashmere and Plaid for a full tutorial.


Hanging Herb and Plant Garden

Speaking of plants, having greenery in your home is a great way to decorate and create that cozy, charming feeling. Since space is a bit more limited, take advantage of vertical space by a window by creating a hanging herb or plant garden in your kitchen, living room, or dining room. You’ll just need some wooden dowels, small hanging pots, and whatever you’d like to plant – herbs, flowers, or succulents. The Bird and Her Song has a full tutorial for you to follow.


Our apartments in Plymouth already come with so many perks and amenities, but it’s up to you to turn it into the dream home that you love walking into every day after work. Stop by Quinn at Plymouth and see the blank canvas that could be all yours to turn into your own.
