DIY Ideas for Apartment Living Rooms

We’ve done a lot of living in small spaces in our time and right now we live in the most adorable apartment, so we’re still working on space efficient decor and furnishing to really complete the space since we moved in. Of course, there are always things we can buy in stores, but we usually feel more satisfied when we make them ourselves! That’s why we’ve been keeping our eyes peeled for awesome DIY projects that would suit an apartment living room.


Are you feeling rather intrigued by the concept of making furnishings and decor for your own apartment’s living room as well? Check out this list of 15 amazing ideas, designs, and tutorials that we’ve come across so far in our search for inspiration!

Do you have the perfect amount of space for a small coffee table, but you think a square one would fit better than the usual rectangular or circular ones you usually see in stores? Well, if you’re a big fan of rustic chic looks and upcycling, then we’d suggest getting your hands on some old wooden crates and taking a look at how Home Evolution made this awesome piece from four stained wooden crates flipped on their side (which also gives you several built-in cubby shelves)!

2. DIY art gallery wall

Perhaps you’re only just starting out in your own home and you don’t have a huge art collection yet, but you’re a huge fan of wall art and you’re looking for a way to cover your walls creatively without spending a mint? Then we think you might get a real kick out of the way Made In a Day made a whole series of simple DIY art pieces and arranged them all over the wall like a collage!

3. Pretty pastel fish scale throw pillow

Perhaps your best DIY skills have actually always been those involving fabric because sewing is something you really love, so you’d much rather do that kind of craft? In that case, we’d definitely suggest taking a look at how Motte made this adorable scalloped throw pillow case that looks just like fish scales! We think it would look gorgeous in whatever colour scheme you need to match your room.
