If you want a fun, unique way to change up your home décor, you will most likely be surprised at all of the great things that you can do with denim from old jeans and jackets that you no longer where. Using denim in your home décor can be a very inexpensive and fun way to make the inside of your home look nicer and more welcoming.
Make a rug!

A woven denim rug could be the perfect new addition to your home that you have been searching for. With a little bit of time and effort you can turn an old piece of denim clothing into a beautiful quaint little rug that you can put anywhere in your home. A simple rug can really complete a room that is lacking a bit in décor, so it’s important to keep that in mind.

Pillow cases

If you want to put some new cases on the pillows on your sofa or bed, you will definitely find that denim is a great material to use. By stitching together pieces of denim, you will be able to make some beautiful new pillowcases that your guests will be sure to comment on when they come over to visit. Denim is a very durable material, so you won’t have to worry about your new pillow cases getting ripped up or worn out, even with regular use. Overall, this is a great material to use if you want to keep your pillows in good condition while adding a nice new aesthetic to a certain room in your home.

Lamp Covers

Another great way to make the inside of your home more unique and aesthetically-pleasing is to cut out pieces of denim and wrap them around some of the smaller lamps in your home. You can punch holes in the denim so as to allow the light to shine through and create a great-looking fixture design in the process. It’s a cost effective way to light up the room.

Reupholster your Sofa

If the upholstery on your sofa in your home has seen better days, you might want to consider reupholstering it with denim. These days a lot of homeowners have started to jump on the denim bandwagon, upholstering everything from sofas to chairs and even loveseats with this material. Since denim is such a tough material, you will be able to count on it to stand the test of time. A denim sofa will look very stylish in your home, and you won’t have to worry about reupholstering it for a very long time.

Make a wall organizer

If you want to improve and add to your home décor while getting yourself more organized, you can make a wall organizer out of denim to hang on your wall. The great thing about these organizers is that you can put anything from scissors to shoes in them. You can choose to make the organizer as big or small as you want, and it is a great way to make the inside of your home a little nicer as a whole.
