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!

  3. Superb blog! Do you have any tips for aspiring writers?
    I’m hoping to start my own blog soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you suggest starting with a free platform like WordPress or go for a paid option? There are so many choices
    out there that I’m completely overwhelmed .. Any tips?
    Bless you!

  8. Reupholstering your existing lounge suite is a wonderful approach to
    begin a renovation to your living space. It is way cheaper compared to investing in a new set and quite often quicker than waiting
    around for delivery too.

  11. Greetings! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering if you knew where I could find a captcha
    plugin for my comment form? I’m using the same blog platform as yours and
    I’m having trouble finding one? Thanks a lot!

  12. You actually make it seem really easy together with your presentation but I find this topic to be really something that I believe I’d
    never understand. It kind of feels too complicated and extremely extensive for me.
    I am looking forward to your next submit, I’ll attempt
    to get the grasp of it!

  13. Definitely consider that that you said. Your favorite justification appeared to be on the internet the easiest thing to be aware of.
    I say to you, I certainly get annoyed even as people think about
    issues that they plainly don’t recognize about. You managed to hit the nail upon the highest as neatly as outlined out the whole thing with no need side-effects , people can take a signal.

    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
