Don’t forget to check out the other #SainsburysHomeHacks creations on the hashtag, and look out for our favourites board on Pinterest! Here’s a little inspiration to get you started…

Make, update and customise: A covered stool; labelled and re-used jars; a fabric-covered pin board; plants in trifle dishes and a lantern; books as a table leg, and a chalkboard-painted wall

1. Cover all

Covering a piece of furniture can be easier than you think: a stool is a good place to start, as there aren’t too many tricky angles. Alternatively, try covering solid objects with wallpaper, magazines or pâpier-maché – read our ‘how to’ here.

2. What’s in store?

Storage can add personality to your home, whether you buy a beautiful kilner jar or simply wash out an old one. Fill them up with dried goods or different coloured jams, then add your own handmade labels.

3. Pin up

Never have anywhere to store your jewellery? Stop leaving it in tangled heaps and try creating a display board instead. Just take a memo board and cover it with fabric, then push earrings into it. Necklace can be strung from the corners or added with thumb tacks.

4. Seed of an idea

When it comes to plants, it’s time to think outside the pot! Trifle dishes and glass lanterns make a more interesting home than ordinary terracotta, and will turn your plants into the focus of your room.

5. By the book

Got piles of old books you’ve already read? If you’ve made the switch to e-readers but don’t want to give away your favourites, try integrating them into your interior design: a stack of books could make a handy table leg, for example.

6. Chalk it up

Chalkboard paint allows you to make a statement anywhere in your home. Write a note, a shopping list or simply a doodle of the day – you can easily change the design to suit your mood.

We can’t wait see your #SainsburysHomeHacks!
