House & Home



If Kmart keep releasing awesome new products each month, then folks, Kmart hacks are here to stay! After bringing you round one, and round two a few months ago, I wasn’t sure if I should do a round three… are people tired of seeing Kmart hacks…..ah no would be the answer to that judging by what google analytics tells me. So as long as you guys want it, I am going to bring you the latest and greatest Kmart Hacks!

So here are 6 new Kmart Hacks on new products. 


@madyleith used back spray paint on her yellow outdoor candle holder, and added a sweet string of pearls to make a modern plant holder – not to similar to the Country Road cubes released earlier this year that sold out in a flash.


I love how versatile this candle holder can be. @angielovesthis has glammed hers up with a coat of gold paint and uses it on her desk to store her pens!


Love the mint base and rainbow dotted shade on the Kmart lamp! @creativebowerbird is the creator of this one. Check out her feed – she has a few other Kmart hacks as well.


Argh! The ever popular jute rug! If I ever see one in Wagga I will snap it up right then and there. @winniebeau_ has done exactly what I would do – paint the yellow black! Looks so much better black don’t you think?


@becky_darragh‘s kitchen styling is spot on. Not only has she painted the Kmart canisters grey, she even made a fabric pouch from the Trent grid quilt cover. Looks amazing. Loving those wooden and marble boards too!


I finally got my hands on this fab little print last week. I much prefer the frame @silverspoonco has used over the black one. This new frame is from Kmart as well. Looks a bit more Scandi now which you know I am loving right now.


I have this little trinket box and this hack has inspired me to paint it. Thanks to @bitsinister (private account) for her pretty hack.

There’s 7 new Kmart Hacks to inspire your creativity. I heard the new homewares catalogue is being released around 2/3 August. Can’t wait to see whats in the new release and what hacks people create!

Don’t forget to check out my other Kmart Hack and Kmart Styling posts here.

    I’ve searched three kmarts for the jute rugs with no luck. I did pick up some hall runners…black with white crosses which are pretty cool.

    I am loving Kmart sick right now. We actually don’t have one where I live but whenever I go to my nearest city, big town, coastal area, I make a beeline for Kmart. I particularly love their undies, shoes, sleepwear, garden and home range. Wait – that’s just about everything. And of course, the kids like the toys and digital stuff. And there are great deals for my pets too. I always buy solar outdoor lighting and decorations for my garden which is my special place to relax in and have some peace and do a little meditating at home – so much cheaper than anywhere else and stylish too.

      I’m not sure. But a lot of people are using rustoleum spray from Bunnings.
