Simple DIY Room Transformations

We are in the process of adding a room onto our house and it got me on a decorating journey.  The room is for my husband, so I get no say but I’m play decorating anyway.  Haha.  It through that journey that I was inspired to share some stuff I came across with you!

Simple DIY Ways to Completely Transform Any Room

I love DIY and decorating, I have a great time coming up with projects and enjoy the hard work that they take.  More so, I enjoy the finished products of my labor.  I’ve been itching to do some work to our house lately so I’ve gathered some of my favorite ideas to share with you.

While not every project I have done has been great, they have been fun and I’ve enjoyed the processes. For example, the glitter floor was a TOTAL fail but it was fun doing it and it completely changed the look of our hallway!  The bathroom countertop I re-did in our bathroom did turnout really well, so I’m working under good odds!

Though it isn’t quite time for me to start my own project, I’m gathering ideas and making plans!  I hope you enjoy this and would love to hear some of your projects, whether completed or in the dream phase!

Simple DIY Room Transformations

Fresh Paint

This seems like an obvious one, but it’s worth mentioning.  A new coat of paint freshens up and can totally transform a room!  Some people tend to shy away from change, but a new color may be just what a room needs to be completely renewed!

Don’t feel like painting?  The picture posted is stick on paint!  Takes the really hard work away!  I’m crazy over this one!

Ceiling Tiles

Faux ceiling tiles can seriously take a room to the next level without costing an arm and leg!  We have one that is absolutely gorgeous, unfortunately we do not have enough to tile our ceiling.  If it’s a look you love, go for it!

Wall Panels

We all remember wood paneling right?  I have a love hate relationship with those things.  I don’t think I’d want to have them, but I love the houses I see them in.  I know, I’m a mess.  Today’s wall panels are very different and there is a huge variety.  I love so many of them, especially the different colors and textures!  Oddly, I kind of want brick wall panels to put inside my brick house.  Haha

Fake Plants

My house doesn’t have the lighting or space that would allow me to grow those gorgeous trees indoors and I don’t trust my ability to keep plants alive enough to buy an expensive potted tree for my porch.  I do, however, totally trust my ability to pay for and keep a faux tree for decoration!  This is on my list to buy next time hubby releases the pocket books!  Ha.  Who am I kidding?  I’ll be getting one when I find the one that I feel is perfect for the look I want.  LOL


Since we are adding onto our house, a window got completely covered.  Rather than adding wall back over it, we opted to add a shelf in the window hole.  I love the way it looks, it’s certainly better than having additional wall space!  Of course, now I have to figure out what to put on the shelves, but I have no doubt that I will do so!

If you don’t have a window hole to fill, adding shelves to a room can not only be functional, it can also completely change the feel of a room!  I especially love the floating shelves!  I’d love to add some in my living room, but that’s for another day.


When we bought our home, the bathroom countertop was that lovely old plastic countertop.  I re-did it with Giani Countertop Kit.  It was crazy easy and not that labor intensive!  I highly recommend it, for less than a hundred bucks you can totally change a room!

I love that there are so many ways we can completely revamp a room! I’m looking forward to hubby’s project being behind us so that I can start one of my own!


Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!

    Ceiling Tiles seems like a wonderful idea. I do like that look. I feel great also when we put a fresh coat of paint in a room too.
