our favorite dIY home decor projects just in time for spring
You all know we love home decor. I mean, you could say we’re slightly obsessed. But what we love even more is when what we create isn’t store bought. We love saving money and we adore the satisfaction that comes from creating something ourselves. So, this week we are showcasing some of our favorite DIY projects from the blog as well as some truly amazing DIY home decor projects from our Linky Party. We hope you are inspired to recreate some of these DIY home decor projects in your own homes. Enjoy.
Some DIY Home Decor Favorites of Ours
We’ve had a lot of fun creating DIY home decor projects over the last few years. It all started with Jodie’s Drop Cloth Curtains. Have your read this story? The story is as good as the DIY itself. It’s a must-read. It will leave you inspired and empowered. Promise.
Another amazing DIY success story was her Industrial Pipe Shelves. Jodie and husband Bill did an incredible job transforming an entire wall in their living room with their hand-made shelving.
The most recent awesome DIY Home Decor project was Jodie’s Fireplace Makeover. Using a stencil she created a brand new look to her old, boring tiled fireplace.
All of these DIY home decor projects:
- Use ingenuity over dollars
- Require no special skills
- Transform spaces on tight budgets
We have plenty more DIY home decor projects on our blog as well. Just search DIY in the search bar. We hope you are inspired and motivated to find the perfect project to update your own home.
Warning: DIY home decor projects can be addictive. Be ready to say goodbye to free weekends, but a big fat hello to your beautiful updated home. Can we all say, “Worth It?”

Budget DIY Home Decor Favorites
Our friend Sherry from Savvy Apron shared her incredible DIY makeover, DIY Faux Floral Wallpaper with Sharpie Pen. We can’t wait for you to take a look. Jodie and I know you’ll be as excited as we are with plenty of take-away ideas to use in your own spaces.
On the topic of favorite Budget DIY projects we still aren’t over the transformation of Jodie’s fireplace with her Fireplace Stencil Project. If you haven’t read the blog post yet you will definitely want to check out all the details of how she created the look of real hand painted tiles for a tiny fraction of the cost (less than $100).
Ashley’s DIY Home Decor Feature
Sarah from Grace In My Space linked up her beautiful Modern Farmhouse Bedroom that included a guide on how to recreate the look in your own home, which I love. And she has a tutorial on her blog on how to create the eye catching DIY accent wall.
This week I was part of this Beautiful Bedrooms tour and shared my Master Bedroom Refresh. I hope you can check it out! It is the most serene space. A perfect retreat after a busy day.
Janine’s DIY Home Decor Feature
Kim and Lacey from Styled with Lace created a fabulous table that is full of inspiring spring home decor. They teamed up with Birch Lane and Stonewall Kitchen for a great dining experience.
I also collaborated with these terrific companies in my spring entertaining post. You don’t want to miss out on their great sweepstakes giveaway.
My client is sprucing up her home for spring, and I’ve been on the hunt for fresh spring home decor. So, mirrors are a great way to change a room with some added sparkle and statement. These are just a few mirrors that I found while working on this project.
