When a full home makeover isn’t in the budget, try a few well-placed decorative accent pieces. For little to no money, you can give your Mississauga apartment a fresh new feel fit for the rest of the summer.

Creating a DIY Mirror

It doesn’t require an arts and crafts pro to create a DIY mirror for your apartment. A DIY mirror project like this one can be completed in little to no time. Besides adding a new beautiful decoration to your space, mirrors double the light by reflecting lamps or natural window light, enhancing the brightness of a room.

Showcase your personality

Is your phone and computer full of pictures that go generally unused and unappreciated? Use these colourful summer snapshots to add both personality and brightness to your bedroom, living room or office area. Put your Instagram pics to use by transferring them to canvas in this DIY summer photo project.

Welcome your Guests

Greet your guests with your personal styled DIY Painted Welcome Mat. Use your entry way to personalize and add some conversation when welcoming your guests with this simple DIY Mat. Using a few supplies, you can simply add character to your front door with this DIY!

Upgrade your pillows

Throw pillows are an easy bet for a budget-friendly apartment makeover. With a bold new no-sew slipcover, you can transform a cozy winter pillow into a summery accent piece. For arts and crafts supplies, start your search at the nearest Michael’s (170 North Queen Street), less than a 10-minute drive from Dixie Square Apartments (1750 Bloor Street & 3315 Fieldgate Drive) or the brand-new Bridgewood Suites (1855 Bloor Street).

Timbercreek Communities hopes today’s ideas help you create a space you love to live in. For more information about spacious and clean Mississauga apartments, simply visit our website today.
