DIY Interior Design Ideas: Make 2013 the Year to Redecorate

Make 2013 the year to put all those DIY interior design ideas to work!

So, maybe 2012 wasn't exactly a hit with the new bedroom or bathroom design, or perhaps your new idea for the family room was a total flop. Take the New Year to evaluate what went wrong and start all over again. You’re not a quitter are you? I didn't think so. Here are a few thinks to keep in mind this time around.

Play By Your Own Rules

If you searched high and low for inspiration last year, don’t do that this time. Stick with the styles and colors that you’re familiar with and just go for it. I’m sure your room will thank you for getting rid of that psychedelic rug no matter what you replace it with!

Get the Right Tools

I don’t care how crafty you are, if you don’t have the right tools to get the job done, we’re gonna have this same conversation in January 2014. Make sure you know what you need to complete the job before you get started. Take time to research your project and prep for the work.

Baby Steps

You can’t redecorate the whole house in a week (unless you have absolutely nothing else to do). You’re actually doing more harm than good even attempting this in such a small time frame. Tackle your design project in baby steps. Now, this doesn't mean that you can only paint one side of a room per month, but it does mean that you should focus on finishing one space at a time.

Share Your Plans

For some reason, we (humans) are less likely to screw around with a project or plan when we know that others are watching us. Learn how to cash in on your ego by telling as many people as you can about your 2013 interior design plans. With a host of family and friends watching and waiting, you’re going to be on your best behavior and get to work.

Your 2013 DIY interior design ideas can become a reality, and you certainly have the power to make this year truly unforgettable. You may not be a professional designer, but you know what you like and you’re smart enough to figure out how to get things done (perhaps with a little help).

Say goodbye to the ugly room. You’re about to make your redecorating dreams come true! I believe in you, now go on and get started.
