Friends, I love a good DIY. I really love to make my home look beautiful, add character, AND save money by doing it myself. Therefore, I am ALWAYS keeping an eye out for a good DIY to do in my home. So, today I am sharing a few of my favorite DIYs that I have found. Maybe these will inspire you to tackle one or two.
First up, I saw this little project in Round Top. I’m not sure if I really want to tackle this one, but I do think it’s super cute. I also think you could recreate this for way less than the price tag on this one. All you need is an old bike, some wood, and a way to keep it all stationary. I do think this project requires some skills like welding, so maybe this isn’t a good beginner type project.
Or, want something a little bigger? How about this one?
Okay, so I really have all the heart eyes for this idea. The idea of having a place for the dog to stay when I’m not home that is not a tacky, bulky crate in my dining room or kitchen is fantastic. And, bonus…the space under the stairs is most often unused anyway. I think that’s a win/win. There are so many cute pics online of these type of kennels and I would love to figure out a way to tackle this. Anyone have any tips on tackling this?
So, here’s a project that I would love for Mr. LouiseMarie to tackle. Adding molding around doors and windows really adds such emphasis to them. I love the character it brings. However, it’s a BIG project to do for all of your doors and windows.
Another fun idea and cute upcycle project is this little drink station. I’ve seen a few versions of this and can imagine how fun this would be to have for a party. It would be easy to customize to fit your needs perfectly and to paint it in a color that works in your yard or on your patio. What do you think? Would you use something like this?
These planters are adorable! I love everything about them. These would be fantastic on my patio or on either side of my front door. And, there’s a tutorial that will tell you exactly how to build them for your home. Just click on the pic to link to the tutorial.
Okay, this last one is a project that I’ve actually tackled. I love the idea of being able to repurpose a piece of furniture that you’re not using into something that you will use. This link will take you to a tutorial of how to turn a coffee table into a tufted ottoman.
And just ’cause I like you so much, here’s one more cute repurposing project. I couldn’t pull this off in my neighborhood, at least in the front of my house, but I do think it’s cute. Could you have something like this?
Well friends, those are some cute DIY projects that I found for you. I hope one of these inspires you to try your own DIY. What did you think of these? Do you have a favorite? Have you seen any really fun projects lately? I’d love for you to share them with me.
Until next time~
