Ever find yourself staring at an open wall in your home and just think, "ew..."? Yeah, that's because plain white walls are EW. But that empty space on a wall can be very tricky to fill, especially if their blankness is never-ending and you're worried about making the wrong decor move. That's where I (hi!) come in. You could say that I'm always here looking out for you, and now I'm here for your walls. Add some much-needed liveliness with plants, do some art projects with common household thangs that'll look great in your living room, or even learn how to weave macrame (hipster looks good on you, friend).

    You may not consider yourself a DIY kween (el oh el, same), but these projects have easy-to-follow instructions that will make you feel like you've been using a saw and painting your whole damn life. Here, the best DIY wall decor projects for you to take on RTFN.

    7. Living Gallery Wall

    If your all-around obsession with plants is thriving, your living gallery wall will too once you plant these babies.

And if you don't yet have that green thumb, maybe take a look at these plants that are almost impossible to kill.

    Tonight I’m sitting here thankful for the choice of adoption. I’m thinking back to last summer where I wasn’t even thinking of adoption because I didn’t think we were “good enough” to start the adoption process or to adopt at all... more on that later, but becoming a mom soon didn’t seem possible. We had just miscarried our 9th baby & the options to do IVF or anything farther than what we had tried was never something we wanted to explore.. so having a gallery wall of family photos this summer still feels like a dream... a dream come true. So thankful for adoption, that we finally took the leap to start the adoption process, & for Cope’s amazing birth mom for choosing adoption for Cope... just thankful. I hope our story and this post inspires you to take a leap of faith no matter what it is.. you may not feel worthy & you may be scared, but it’s worth it I promise.. so happy we took the leap! Goodnight my friends!! Ps. You can see how we made this gallery wall, a diy on those photo ledges, & a source for those frames on the blog: lizmarieblog.com - link in my profile. #whitecottagefarm #cozywhitecottage #copelandbeau

    14. Mirror Gallery Wall

    Every home needs that well-placed mirror on their empty wall, but what are you supposed to do with the rest of the space? To avoid answering this question, create a mirror gallery. It's a fun way to add some extra dimension and color to the room while showcasing some of your personal style. Tutorial: find mirrors you like and hang them on the same wall. I swear it could not be easier.

    Fall is here and doesn’t it make you want to get every corner of your house as warm and cozy as possible to settle in for the months ahead? I don’t live in this little beauty everyday, but it’s the dreamiest tiny Victorian rental cottage you will ever go to in Leipers Fork, TN called the #sweeneycottage ?? This was my mirror wall that I worked on for hours the day before Arlo was born. It was the last part of the house unfinished and when the doctor told me he was coming early, I hightailed it to the antique store to get this knocked out! A curated mirror wall does not have to be expensive, find an antique mall or flea market nearby (or even better a little further out in the country to save some bucks), and start pickin! I love a mix of gold, wood, beat up silver, and frameless to make it all come together. Don’t get out a ruler, just start hanging (always decide what the focal piece is for the center first) and then adjust as you go. It takes a few hours to get there, but it has so much more personality than a planned out mathematical equation of a wall. Get ready for lots of holes as you work your way through the design! I threw in a few antique platters on the bottom row also ???? Bead board is high gloss tricorn black by Sherwin Williams, antique wooden chair by one of my faves @scarlettscalesantiques. Blue floral wallpaper by @thibaut_1886 in the far right corner ???? I lived here when I was 24, and had the opportunity to renovate it 10 years later with a friend who bought it. You can rent via @whitesroomandboard, walk next door to @thespaatleipersfork for truly glorious massages and facials, walk to the opposite side next door for the most insane food @1892leipersfork, and you’ve got yourself a dreamy weekend to boot!

    15. Leaf Art

    If you're not into the whole "fill my entire wall up with plants" look but can't commit to a watering sched, try this project instead. It's a minimalist's answer to adding some foliage to the walls.

    16. Paint Swatch Art

    For the Pantone lovers, may I suggest a paint swatch turned art piece? It's completely DIY even though it looks like you could've ordered it from a severely overpriced operation. Do it yourself, and you'll be happier with the look and the price tag.

    17. Macrame Wall Hangings

    18. Geometric Wood Wall Art

    FYI: You're going to need some legit tools for this one that probs don't come in the mini toolbox your parents gave you when you moved into your first apartment. But it's 100 percent worth it for this geometric wall art that's way better (and more reasonably priced) than anything you'll find in a store.

    19. Scalloped Wall

    The scallop pattern is maybe the cutest thing you could add to your walls. Switch up the color based on your preference. All you need is a lot of paint and a lot more patience to take on this project.

    20. Fabric Flag Word Art

    A fabric flag serves as a blank canvas that's ready to showcase any word your heart desires. You can make the flag as large as you want depending on the amount of space you have on your wall, so it's perfect for any room in the house.
