I really enjoy DIY projects, mainly because I'm strange like that and crafting/creating is fun for me, but also because we are on a tight budget and DIY is usually more cost effective. It may take more time and effort but in the end it's
Here's a peek at some of the DIY crafting/decorating projects that I have completed over the past 5 months. Please forgive the randomness - these projects are from various rooms - but I've literally been all over the place while decorating this house! I'm also really bad at remembering to take "before" photos so these are all "finished product" shots.
|Shelf in guest bedroom - spray painted old shelf black|
and used vases and live/love letters from old dining room.
|Toy room decor - used acrylic paint, $2 photo frames|
and FREE printables from internet.
|Clothesline picture frames - made using old Ikea frames w/front|
removed. Added paint and used fishing wire and mini clothespins
to create photo displays.
|DIY bulletin boards - made using foam boards|
and fabric from Hobby Lobby.
|Anthropologie inspired letters made with supplies|
from Hobby Lobby.
These are just a few of my smaller completed DIY projects and there are many more to come!
