DIY





What more and more people are realizing are the benefits of the whole DIY concept. My sister and I have always loved DIY projects, but we always let life get in the way, allowing ourselves to get sucked into the expensive convenience trap. As we get older, we're realizing that it's better all around if we just did things ourselves. 

One of our biggest pet peeves is to pay a lot of money to have something done a certain way, yet it still doesn't get done the way YOU want it done -- unless you're willing to fork out even more money. So, why not just do it ourselves? It will be done the way we want it done and for a LOT less! 

Repurposing and upcycling things has become rather popular and that often means that someone else's trash can become one of your treasures. In that case, it helps to have an imagination so you can see the beauty in something that may not currently look all that beautiful. You must look passed its state of ugliness and envision how you can give it new life to suit your personal taste. 

Whether you're using new materials or saving money by recycling the old, I'll be posting all kinds of neat DIY ideas and projects. So, if you're looking to decorate, make home improvements, organize a space, or what have you, you'll definitely want to check these out. Not only will you save a good deal of money, you'll also be proud to have created something yourself.
