Do it yourself, or DIY, has become the new hot term in the home renovation world.  Everyone wants to know how they can get their hands on a fun project, and save money and time by not paying someone else to do it.  Not only is it a time to exercise creativity, but it is also a time people can spend together doing something enjoyable right in their very own home.  Last but not least, DIY allows the person doing the project to get the exact look they are going for.  When you purchase something already made or even hire someone else to do it, there is no guarantee that it will turn out exactly how you envisioned in your mind.  With DIY, your dreams become a reality.

So, what all is there to do in your home in the DIY category?  Well, when it comes to redecorating or renovating, a whole lot!  Take a look at a few ideas below.

  1. Succulent Gardens. Succulents are a growing trend, because they provide a tropical look no matter where you may actually be located.  If you purchase a succulent garden pre-made, you are bound to spend lots of money.  However, they can easily be put together yourself as a fun DIY project and you will spend about half the cost.
  2. DIY Furniture. Many people love the rustic look, but it can run you a pretty penny when shopping at stores like Restoration Hardware.  You can achieve the same look by following tutorials on making your own rustic furniture with reclaimed and recycled wood.
  3. Textured Walls. People want to add a unique touch to their home, and this can be easily done by creating an accent wall with faux wall paneling.  Faux stone, faux brick, or faux wood is the perfect way to add texture to a wall.  At Faux Direct, you can select from a wide variety of the previously mentioned three, and they can all be applied on your own.  They are lightweight, easy to install, and will last for years to come.

  5. DIY Lighting. Another area where lots of money can be spent is in the lighting department.  Fancy chandeliers and funky pendant lights look amazing, but are expensive and hard to find the perfect one for your space.  There are so many online tutorials on how to create your own lighting, and you can even do so with items found in your own kitchen, such as a colander!
