So today, I was going to share a Kmart hack DIY project, where I transformed a test tube vase with gold glitter. Problem is, once I put the glitter on the glass test tubes, they no longer fit through the holes in the timber stand. #diyfail
So instead I am going to share with you some other clever Kmart hacks I have found, where people have taken an ordinary inexpensive piece of home decor from Kmart and personalised it to make a unique piece, or just used it in a way that it doesn’t look like a bargain find.
This was a Kmart mirror. Kirstie’s husband took out the mirror and added some shelves to display perfume bottles. Now that’s clever.
Christina from @rivertheodorehacked gave this Kmart grey knit throw a facelift by adding pom poms to it. Read how Sam made a colourful pom pom blanket last year.
Take a plain Kmart vase and add a cool leather strap. That’s what Lewis & Lou Home did and it looks great. You can buy the straps from their website and yes, they ship to Australia.
Art is Sand in New Zealand created this beautiful coloured sand succulent terrarium using a Kmart hurricane vase.
Here’s exactly the same hurricane vase, but with a beautiful display of hydrangeas. Whilst the vase isn’t hacked, it just goes to show how different the same item can look depending on the way you style it.
Paula gave this plain timber Kmart shelf a coastal look with white spray paint and some pretty coastal decor accessories.
Jenni from @aquaabundance has created a beautiful setting in her home with her Kmart hack pot plant stand.
Customising a mass produced item is a great way to personalise your decor and give you something unique. If you’ve hacked something we’d love to see it. To see more great hacks search these hashtags #kmarthack #ikeahack #targethack #potterybarnhack
