best ever Kmart hacks to spruce up your outdoors

Indoor ottoman gets a render overhaul

Self-confessed DIY lover Jodie from Caves Coastal Renos took the garishly pink Kmart ottoman and turned it into this beauty.

Using some render and a bit of DIY know-how she took it from meh to ah-MAZING! Check out her video below to see how she did it if you want to give it a go yourself!

Inexpensive outdoor umbrella

Outdoor umbrellas cost a bomb which is what prompted Alison to come up with this clever hack! Using a $15 white plastic outdoor pot from Kmart that she filled with a brick and sand mix, she placed one of the $12 umbrellas inside.

Her husband made the timber top from offcuts they had which holds the umbrella in place and is the perfect spot to rest a cold drink!

Layering style

This one is not so much a hack as a styling trick. Inside the home you can layer a smaller rug on a larger rug. And you can do the same for your entry… adding a smaller door mat on a larger one for an instant luxe look.

Imogen layered her personalised door mat on top of the Kmart jute mat, making her front entry look ten times more stylish, don’t you think?!

Bamboo storage box as planter box

Shay wanted to add some tropical plants to her rental home. She used a couple of bamboo storage boxes that she painted and lined with weed mat as a cheap and instant solution. Although the bamboo is likely to swell over time, she says this is the perfect solution for now.

Plastic dinosaur toy becomes cool plant holder

Krystal turned a typical T-Rex kids toy into a cool plant holder for her aloe plant. By simply cutting a hole into the back and painting the dino black, she created a fun piece that would be ideal in an outdoor kids play space or even their bedroom.

Custom cubby house

We couldn’t possibly leave out the most popular Kmart kid’s hack of all — customised cubby houses! Kmart outdid themselves when they released this cubby house and although there have been a few design iterations (the latest is a bit more ‘barn’ like with a half door), they’re all totally magical and an opportunity for parents to get a bit creative.

Gina created a Kmart hack cubby for her sons Patrick and Alexander and recently re-worked it again into a custom green, grey and white colour scheme and included a kitchen inside.

The family at Number 43 painted their Kmart cubby the same colour as their home, helping it blend in perfectly. It’s such a clever way to make gaudy kids ‘stuff’ fit in stylishly with the rest of the home!

For those of us who have kids obsessed with firefighters, we love how Prue turned the cubby into a fire station — so cool! Alicia gave her Kmart cubby a massive makeover giving us all the Hamptons vibes! With the wooden jungle run play house, Lauren added climbing rocks and other fun additions (most parts are from Kmart or Bunnings). Talk about a fun play space!
