20 TikTok Home DIYs So Genius You’ll Wonder Why You Didn’t Think of Them First

My new favorite toxic trait of mine is scrolling on my phone at 1 a.m., favoriting a plethora of TikTok DIY projects that I swear I’ll do on my next day off, and never visiting the idea ever again. Maybe it’s because I’m a night owl and am energized to revamp everything about my apartment in the dark hours of the night when woodworking/hammering is widely unacceptable, or maybe it’s because I’m a sucker for saving money on what would otherwise be a hefty West Elm purchase.

But these TikTok hacks are just so innovative that I can’t keep them all to myself in my saved TikToks folder. And, I know I’ve said this before but, I actually want to tackle these ones. If you’re looking to give your place a budget-friendly revamp, look no further than these 20 TikTok DIY projects that are so genius, you’ll wonder how you didn’t think of them yourself:
