15 Gorgeous Ombre Home Decor DIYs

One of my favorite trends in home DIY and decor these days is ombre. Are you as obsessed as I am? It makes the simplest piece of furniture or other product so much more colorful and fun! I have even seen some pretty hideous pieces of furniture (ones that I might take to the thrift store, or even to the dump) turned into something I would be proud to show off in my home to family and friends! Crazy, right? My favorite type of ombre look is the blue hued variety. They are so cool and fun. But the absolute best part (in my humble opinion) about ombre is that it reminds me a lot of watercolor. And really, who isn’t head over heels in love with watercolor these days? So if your home, or even just a room or two in your home, are in need of a colorful and fun update, consider a few awesome ombre DIY projects to do the trick! So start thinking about an ugly dresser, or a drab lamp shade, or even a boring entry way that could use a little more life and color and get busy making it gorgeously ombre! Here are 15 downright awesome ombre home decor DIYs to try and love.
