1. Curved coffee table makeover
How ah-MAZING is this Kmart coffee table makeover?! The ever so talented Zoe from the DIY Decorator gave the previously black curved coffee table a lick of white paint but not only that, she added texture… using corrugated packing card! Talk about a savvy saver!
The whole project cost less than $100 (!!). Check out how she made one of the coolest Kmart hacks we’ve ever seen over on her Instagram page.
2. Room screen bedhead hack
Struggling to find a bedhead for her super-king size bed, Ceryce had this bright idea! She took 2 Kmart room screens, removed the ends and popped them together to create this fabulous new look! So creative and clever!

Who would have thought you could get such great results from using placemats and bath mats (yes, bath mats!) to make cushions?! Renee is the clever mind behind this Kmart hack, taking 2 jute placemats and 2 bath mats and turning them into these fab looking cushions.

Wow! There are some seriously creative thinkers out there! We love this idea of using the already fabulous Kmart rattan sideboard, and using them as cabinetry for the kitchen! A great way to breathe a bit of new life into a tired space with this on-trend look.
6. Chalk-painted vases
One of our fave ever DIYers, Geneva from Collective Gen, recently shared an amazing chalk paint. She has inspired SO many people to take old (or in this case, new!) vases and pots they love the shape of but not so much the colour, and give them a new lease on life.
Just like Lauren who took this trio of Kmart vases and painted them to suit her colour scheme. So pretty!

Here’s another use for a candle lid that we’d never considered! Alex Tyler added a 3M sticker to the back and stuck it onto the wall, making the perfect hat hook. Simple, cost effective and definitely earning its place as one of the coolest Kmart hacks ever!
10. Round hanging shelf gets an upgrade
The Kmart round hanging shelf has been around for a while now and we’ve seen it featured in plenty of clever hacks. This one from Lauren really caught our attention with her addition of a rattan backing.
Hanging in her daughters room, we think it adds a beautiful boho touch to an otherwise simple Kmart shelf. Love it!

Using a wooden serving tray and readjusting the legs to fit your couch arm, and voila! You have the perfect side table for coffee, tea, chocolate, or wine 😉 .
