Whether you're a dab hand at fixing things yourself or not, DIY is a trend that seems to be regaining a cult following.

If there's something you know needs doing but you need the motivation to get your DIY on, read ahead for serious inspiration.

I find with interiors my inspiration comes and goes, I’ll get a fit of energy and do loads and then go for weeks just gorging on episodes of Suits! 👨🏼‍⚖️ This wall was empty apart from the pompon cloud I made a few weeks back and I couldn’t figure out what I wanted to put with it so I just start lashing things up on the wall to see what I liked! I want the walls to have texture and dimension and just be a bit interesting 😊 The garland of stars I made this weekend, you’ll probably catch details of that in my Instastories I’ve made loads and put them in all the girls rooms! I made the pompon cloud just using pom-poms and a bit of trial and error. The bunting I also made a long while back. The frame with the scan picture I also made! The bird pictures were gifts. The print is from @moon The small rectangular frame is from Dealz and I printed out the pictures myself 🙌🏻 #gallerywall #girlsbedroom #nurseryinspo #diyhomedecor
