Favorite DIY Projects | ORC Spring 2017

Hello Friends,

If you’re looking for a few new and super creative DIY projects, look no further. During the One Room Challenge, some of my bloggy friends really outdid themselves. So I pulled a few of my favorites and provide the link back to the original tutorials.

Hope you find an idea that inspires a new project!

If you want to pin any of these projects, please pop over to the original blog so that all pins connect directly with the tutorial. Thanks!


My friend Nancy, from Slightly Coastal, found this light fixture for $15 and gave it a quick and easy makeover. Now it’s total awesomesauce in her newly refreshed dining room. Do yourself a favor and check out this makeover along with 5 more in this new room on her fabulous blog.

A total of 6 fabulous DIYs were pulled together for Slighly Coastal's dining room refresh | Find the tutorials at www.slightlycoastal.com

Floor Stencilling

If you have some outdated or damaged tile that could use some sprucing up, check out this amazing makeover by Bright Green Door. That’s just a paint base with more paint rolled over a stencil and then sealed.

And another great example is by my friend Coco from The Crowned Goat. She pulled up the carpet in her masterbedroom and painted a stencil on the concrete slab floor. Trust me, you’ll want to see the whole room.

Photo Art

And about that dull wall in your hall, amIrite? We all have one. Well, maybe all of us except Cassie. She jazzed up her space with black paint and photos of her cute kids. Find paint colors and the wall art how-tos on her blog, Cassie Bustamante.

Peg Board

And last, but certainly not least, is this ahhhhmaaaazing over-sized peg board made by Wonderfully Made by Leslie. I seriously want one —-or six. 🙂 I’m thinking one in every room.
