Want to liven up your kitchen without remodelling or spending too much time and money on a large project? Then here you go; we have 5 simple kitchen DIY ideas that will take just a few minutes of your time, but definitely, make a big impact in making your kitchen and some of its mundane items look a little funky.
1. Paint Over Old Boring Mugs
Do you have a set of boring white or grey mugs that give your kitchen a rather ‘canteen’ like feel? The trend for mismatched mugs is all the rage these days, so go ahead and paint over these. Wash and dry all mugs and then paint them in simple designs using waterproof paint or permanent markers. You can even combine old white and grey mugs that are a part of half-broken sets and create a brand new mismatched set using white and grey paint. You could write sayings or paint designs, the sky's the limit.

2. Make Your Own Dish Soap Dispenser
If you hate plastic liquid dish soap dispensers because they don’t add anything to your carefully designed kitchen décor, you can easily make one yourself. Take an old glass olive oil bottle with a metal dispenser cap, and use glass etching to write DISH SOAP along the side in a classy way! Glass etching cream is easily available online, and the whole process barely takes any time.

3. Dip Dye Mismatched Wooden Spoons
If you have a set of mismatched wooden spoons, clean them, dry them, and then dip dye them into the colours of the rainbow. All you need is non-toxic craft paint and a little imagination. These spoons hung over the gas hob or neatly arranged face down into a spoon holder will glam up your kitchen in an instant, and you’ll also learn to associate a colour with a particular type of spoon to make cooking easier. You could also paint then into shapes or faces just to make things interesting.

4. Turn Old Mason Jars into holders or containers for various things
Mason jars are becoming more and more popular to store staples, serve smoothies and mocktails, and also as candle holders. Aside from just using them as simple jars, you could decorate them with paint and use them to store cutlery. Another option would be to fill them with mud and grow small vines near your kitchen window to add a little green to the surroundings. Some of what you grow could even be used in cooking.
