1. Chalkboard Wall Paint
Forget school. Chalkboard paint is popular now, as you can put them absolutely anywhere; however, it does work best in kitchens and children’s rooms. If you want to add more creativity, these paints are also somehow magnetic, so you can do a lot with little.

Showcase your love for wines without seeming like an alcoholic by turning some wine corks into a necklace rack to display your jewelry. With easy DIY projects like this, you’ll know something good can come out of all those wine corks you have lying around!
3. Floating Bookshelf
Impress your friends with your magical skills by creating a floating bookshelf out of the books themselves. Create an eye-catching illusion that will make your friends wonder whether or not you actually spent some time at Hogwarts those past few months you’ve been AWOL at the group get-togethers.

Luxurious gold can add some elegance, so why not use it for flower pots? Spray-paint ordinary flower pots with metallic gold to bring a sense of luxury to your apartment.
5. Moroccan Dream Stencil
A piece of cardboard is all you need to uplift a wall and give it a decorative Moroccan theme. Stencil in your design, and if you are tired of the look, you can just paint it over—no pesky (and expensive) wallpaper necessary.
