With the rising cost of living in the U.S., people are becoming more savvy about how they shop for products, how to re-use items, and how to have fun with 10 Creative DIY Home Projects. The term "life hack" has been more prevalent in recent years as objects used for one purpose, can most certainly be used for other more creative purposes that what they are actually intended for. Turning an old barrel into a planter, using old CD's as coasters, or rolling up your t-shirt to save space in your suitcase may be just a few of the original life hacks out there.
In addition to people being more savvy with recycling items, a surge in creative juices has been more prevalent in home owners in recent times. The cookie-cutter style home is less attractive, and a unique home is something many people strive for. Whether you are looking to shop for a new home and make it your own, or just add some creative touches to your current home, here is a list of 10 Creative DIY Home Projects that you can try to improve your living space!
1) Use a hinged painting to hide a thermostat.
2) Use an old laundry basket to make polka-dots on your wall.
3) Use a shoe organizer in the pantry to store packaged food.
4) Use a foam pipe insulation piece to protect your car door in the garage.
5) Use a squeegee to remove pet hair from carpets.
6) Use rope lights in your closets with no light bulbs.
7) Use fingernail polish to identify keys.
8) After painting a room, keep a little amount in a jar for touch-ups.
9) Use an old drawer for a artsy shelf.
10) Use coat hooks to hang your ironing board.

Mother in-law suites, how to retrofit your home, a perspective from R
"We worked with Karen Venier for a relatively short time for a good reason: our home sold at full price within hours of hitting the market! While it’s true that the Denver housing market is “hot,” credit for the speed and ease of our transaction belongs to Karen. She was great to work with, giving us perfect advice about readying our home for sale and then expertly guiding us from offer to close. Along the way, we came to appreciate Karen for her skillful blend of professionalism and personal touches – like dropping off our favorite beverages during a particularly stressful time in our move or shoveling our driveway in subzero temps after we’d left the state (way beyond the call of duty!). Now that we’ve relocated to Wisconsin, we keep saying that we wish Karen could be our buyer’s agent here. Since that’s not possible, we’ll shout her name loudly to whoever might be looking for a home in the Denver area.
Thanks for the great work, Karen!
