    Anyone like to DIY?

    Advertisements
    I've been itching to DIY some things lately to spruce up our apartment! I made a fake flower arrangement made with stuff from the Dollar Tree, which is cool, but I'm wanting to make some other things. I especially want to make a corkboard map for the wall, but I'm waiting until summer to do that because I'll be all by my lonesome and I need something to do with myself!

    Does anyone else like to make things or upcycle things? I need some ideas ^_^

    I actually saw a really cool picture frame made out of cd cases. I'll post the link when I get home from work. I want to try it myself

    Oh, that sounds really cool! I love pinterest! I usually use it for recipes though, so I don't really think to look on there for DIY things, even though I know there's a ton. Good idea

    When I was 15 I splatter painted my bedroom. Painted the wall grey then threw yellow, orange, green, and purple at the walls. I was so much fun and it looked amazing. I count it as a DIY. You could pay a professional but you're not so it's a DIY!

    I've made a few furniture pieces for the house (bed, shoe bench, shelves, etc.). Also, I'm really into craft projects and I'm always drawing inspiration off Pinterest.

    This sounds pretty cool! I bet it looked awesome. Now I kinda wanna do that too! I'm also way too cheap to pay anyone to paint my walls..
