DIY's That I Still Love

Sometimes we do a DIY project and it is fabulous (for a while) and then sometimes it is fabulous forever.   Here are a few that I still love.

Furnishing A Living Room For $96.98
This is the room I pulled together from Goodwill, Garage Sales, Dollar Tree and Roadside for my son when he moved into his new house. 
 Details and cost breakdown.
There have been a couple of additions to this room, (a blue wingback chair-$18.95- and an end table -$12.95- to replace the skirted table all from goodwill) but basically the same and so perfect for under $100.

Beadboard Added To Bookcases
 See what a fabulous difference a sheet of beadboard made.  Looks like a totally different unit.  You can see the entire post on how we did it here.

Before - the backs of these were really cheap pressed board and so dark and dreary.  Not very pretty.

Bedroom Makeover for $352.94
It's hard for me to remember where this room started, it looks so much better now.  Check it out

Oh my word, how bad was this.  I really had forgotten.  This is a hodgepodge of things that would fit when we downsized.

Of course my Mini Kitchen Remodel is still a favorite. Total cost $573.56.

I still love the Hall Bathroom Makeover too.
Huge change for $113.59

There are several other DIY's that I still love - how about you - got any favorites?

  1. Hi Marty,
    It was fun to see your DIY projects from the past. You have done so much for so little to your pretty place.

  2. Oh my goodness! I love your DIY projects and most of all I love the $$$$$ amount! Hugs and blessings, Cindy

  3. You always have the best DIY projects with a great budget in mind!....I loved seeing your past projects...always a great bang for your buck!!!...Have a great day Marty!

  4. I love these DIY's, and especially your son's apartment. Amazing how little money you actually need to spend and still have a beautiful room.

  5. You always do so many wonderful projects and with not a great deal of $$$$!!!! I love that. You are such a wonderful inspiration to us all! Just looking at your bedroom a light went off in my head. I have been fighting with myself over bedding for our master since we moved in. Now I am thinking ,"Just go neutral" and then I can add whatever color accents I want. DUH!!!:) Thanks!!!!

  6. Ahhh, you can't beat decorating a room for less than $100. And I truly love decorating on a budget too. Your rooms all look great!! Thanks for sharing.

  7. Wow great DIY's. Love the under $100 that is talent!
