D.I.Y. ideas you can use for Mum’s home this Mother’s Day

We all want to give mum something special for Mother’s Day. This year, instead of the usual slippers or dressing gown, why not spoil her with a D.I.Y. project she can enjoy for years to come.

Kitchen makeovers for Mum

Kitchen makeovers for Mum

No doubt mum has cooked up countless meals for you over the years. So why not pay her back with a kitchen makeover. It only takes a few, inexpensive changes to start making a big difference. A fresh coat of paint, new tiles and updated cupboards can transform her kitchen and give it a whole new lease of life.

Another project is a recycled timber dining table with bench seats. Perfect for inside or outside, it’s easy to make and will give her place a rustic yet modern feel. 

If you’re more inclined to take on a smaller project, there’s nothing like a hand-crafted gift for a more personal touch. A D.I.Y. timber knife block or cutting board is a stylish and practical addition to home.

Rejuvenate Mum’s bathroom

Rejuvenate Mum’s bathroom

If anyone deserves a little pampering, it has to be Mum. So why not transform her bathroom from a functional space to a relaxing retreat. There are plenty of ways to transform her bathroom without spending a fortune. From a few simple light fittings to changing a shower head or adding a touch of greenery. 

There are also some simple ways to give your Mum’s bathroom a makeover on a budget. You could even make her a stylish copper towel rack or a timber bath caddy to give her bathroom a touch of luxury.

There’s nothing like giving a gift you’ve made yourself. And just a little bit of effort can go a really long way. Upcycling pre-loved furniture with a splash of paint or coat of varnish can restore it to its former glory.

An industrial style bookshelf is a great way to add some storage while creating a unique and modern piece of furniture. While a copper bedside table can become a real focal point in her bedroom.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
