The Easiest DIY Project to Re-Decorate Your Life

Maybe you’re bored with the way your home looks. Maybe your teenager wants a “room makeover” but you have more important crap to buy. Maybe you’re entering or exiting your mid-life crisis and want to mark the occasion with a spontaneously decorated new door or wall or… whatever. If you’re looking to bring a new color or pattern into your life, I have a cheap, easy, and quick solution: washi tape.

Washi tape is a type of decorative, colored adhesive tape used to dress up the plain and boring sh*t in your life. That pen a little too dull? Wrap it in tape. Want to decorate your planner? Stick some pieces of tape in there. Seriously, it’s that easy—and insanely affordable.  

So how do you incorporate washi tape into a room makeover or mid-life crisis? Stick it on your walls, of course! Decorate your door with new patterns. Let your daughter go crazy on her walls. Add some embellishment to your boring bathroom mirror. Wrap your phone charger in the stuff. Really, you’ll be surprised by how much fun and excitement a pop of color will bring into your life.

Already covered your doors and walls with the stuff? Here are some other easy and fun ways to use your washi tape.
