Great Ideas — 19 DIY Build-It Projects!!

great diy collage

Sometimes you get the urge to make something — but you need just a little inspiration to get started. That’s what these 19 DIY build-it-yourself projects are for! There’s nothing like making something with your own hands, or taking something discarded or worn and making it new again!

I loved so many of the DIY projects linked up this weekend — and today I’m featuring 19 build-it projects. (Check out yesterday’s 26 DIY projects for even more great ideas.) I’m kind of impatient, but I find that projects like these that take a bit longer to make — even a week or more — can be even more satisfying than quick projects. Hopefully they’ll inspire you, too, and be sure to check out all of the projects linked up in this week’s Weekend Wrap Up Party!

This is the same company that makes the frames I used in my Family Gallery Wall.

I love the shape of their frames. They come unfinished so you can paint them any color that you want. Plus, they are super affordable.

Just check out how I created my pegboard wall — there are so many possibilities for different projects!
