Whew, we made it through the week guys! I don’t know about you, but with it being Spring that means our family schedule has kicked up into crazy town. I have one child in Baseball, and two in soccer. This means games on Saturday and practice during the week times 3. I have so many plans for my home and a ton of projects I want to tackle, but the past few weeks I have not been home much to get them done. I was needing a little inspiration, so these 25 DIY new build furniture ideas is just what I need to kick off this weekend!
I get questions and comments all the time about how I must spend a lot of money on my home, decorating and furnishing it. Umm, no! We have a monthly budget like any other family and have yet to win the lottery. I do spend more than some, and less than others when it comes to updating or decorating my home. But, I cut a lot of the cost away by DIYing things. Sometimes it is smaller crafts or easy home decorations, then other times it is a complete furniture redo or new build. All of these are ways to decorate my home for less.
These 25 DIY new build furniture ideas is a mix of a few of my projects and some amazingly talented blogger friends of mine. All of them share complete tutorials within the individual blog posts. As much as I like decorating my home and sharing it with you all, there is only so many hours in the day and my skill level is still newbie-ish when it comes to building furniture. These ladies impress on a massive scale and it gets me jonesing for my power tools!
I love getting ideas from other homes, seeing something I like and either making it or tweaking it to work for my home. The Spring home improvement to-do list has begun and it is a doozy this year for me. We have plans to revamp some flower beds, possibly put in a new fence, finish the laundry room, make some built-ins, and a gazillion little tweaks to my decor. Now that it is warmer here in Wisconsin we are full steam ahead to get things done. We have limited time to get outdoor projects done, and limited time to enjoy our outdoor space. It is crunch time!
I tend to do a few home projects during the week, sometimes on the weekend if it is a bigger project. For the most part we try and enjoy the weekend, aside from our kids activity schedule. This weekend I need to keep myself together, we are celebrating my littlest little is turning 6! He is not 6 until next week but we are celebrating with a party with our extended family this weekend. I blinked and my little one is not so little. I love to entertain and have people over, I love a full house, giggling kids, music playing, good food, kids running in and out of the house… give it all to me. My baby being 6… I am not so sure how I like that. My kids insist on growing up and there is nothing I can do about it! So today I am focusing on what I can control, which is my home and drooling over the 25 DIY new build furniture ideas. Today I am taking some notes for furniture ideas and cleaning my house, so much cleaning. Which I always do, I clean before people come over and make a mess. Just how I roll!
