I like Easy DIY Projects and before I started blogging a couple of years ago I starting following this gal who not only made things look easy, she made me feel like I could do it too. I liked her style and frankly I liked HER and I wanted to know her.
Fast forward a bit and now, not only have I met the fabulous Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage in person several times, I can also say she is now a dear friend of mine. I am so thrilled to have her sharing here today while we are taking a much needed family vacation this week so without further ado…
Hi A Little CLAIREification readers! I’m Gina from The Shabby Creek Cottage, and I’m so happy to be here today! Each month Claire shares her amazing crock pot recipes on my blog, so I’m super excited to share a little DIY inspiration here with you today.
If you’ve never really done a DIY project before, my blog is all about breaking them down so you CAN do them, no matter what your skill level. From beginners to advanced DIYers, I hope you can find some inspiration today.
When I start working on a room makeover, I always start with the walls. Focal walls are my favorite way to add impact with a little budget. From breadboard to plank walls to even roofing material, nothing is safe from me trying to work with if I get a bright idea.
Besides walls, I also DIY my own floors. Yeah, no inch of my house is really safe from my DIY wrath. We tried to make our own flooring from one of my “crazy ideas” and they worked so well we finished out almost every room of our house with them.
I also DIY a lot of our furniture, like….
Like making my own modern style headboard from a hollow core door. It took a little hard thinking, but I figured out how to make it in just a couple of hours and for under $40. Pretty good deal, huh?
I also built our kitchen island. If you’re waiting for an easy furniture project to do your first DIY – this is the one. It’s super easy and you can build it in just a couple of hours!
And last, but certainly not least, is my easy DIY farmhouse style coffee table. Anyone can build this simple table in very little time and for very little money.
So that’s it! I hope some of these projects inspire you to try them yourself! Thanks to Claire for letting me stop by and for hanging out with me today!
