We cannot believe that our little blog is almost two years old. It is crazy to think of all the DIY projects we have undertaken in that amount of time. From painting walls to make shelves (and a lot of them), we just are so thankful to share our DIY with DIY nuts like us!
Now what is crazy is some of our first projects didn’t even make this list. But we have to give a shoutout out to our first painted accent wall that started it all!
Here are just a few DIY projects that our readers loved! We cannot thank everyone enough for all their support!
Reader's Favorites From The DIY Nuts
We are so thrilled that our readers have been loving our DIY projects this year. Not only did we hopefully inspire a DIY project in your home, but we love that we are slowly using DIY projects to turn our house into our forever home.
Our Favorite DIY Outdoor Projects
If one thing we have learned this year, is being outside is the place to be. Our children are happier and so are we.
This year has been all about our outdoor living space. These DIY painted pots are such a fun way to change a simple terracotta pot. We just love that we were able to create this fun faux marble pot using spray paint.
What do you do with a large leftover pile of expensive composite decking? If you are a DIY nut like us, you build outdoor furniture. This DIY outdoor dining table has hosted several different outdoor gatherings in our new outdoor space.
Since we all are spending more time at home, these garden boxes are great way to stay healthier and start a new hobby. We are so thankful that we were able to create these awesome garden boxes. We know we will love them for years to come!
If you have a spot for the adults to hang out and enjoy the outdoors, you better have fun for the kids. We are so happy that this "quarantine" project is available for our children to play with all year round. Not to mention how much money we saved building our own large outdoor playset.
Redoing free finds is one of our favorite things. Why buy something new, when you can remake something that you find for free. You have to see what this Little Tikes playhouse looked like before this makeover. Now we have one more activity for our children to use their imaginations in the outdoors.
DIY Furniture Projects
From making new furniture to repurposing pieces we already have, furniture makeovers have always helped us update our home while staying on budget.
This metal desk was purchased for $30 and is still one of the most unique pieces of furniture in our home. The teal color also definitely adds some flavor to our home office. And after all of this working from home, we need any excitement we can get!
DIY Storage and Organization
Every time we would start a DIY project, something always needed to be organized. We just couldn't help ourselves with all the different shelving and storage spaces we have created!
By far one of the best and useful DIY projects we have done was painting and adding laundry room cabinets and shelving into our small laundry room. We couldn't get over how much more space we had using these taller cabinets.
This was the first shelving project we did that was the catalyst to many more organization projects. We are so happy that we did just make this a boring all-white closet and added something a contrasting color.
Creating our own pinata for our son's birthday was definitely a fun family event when we could only celebrate a birthday at home. Not only did we make this pinata together, but destroyed it together. Fun all around!
What do you do when stuck at home and need some cheer? We looked in our pantry to create these amazing marshmallow art projects to display to our neighbors. We hope we made someone smile this past year!
