When it comes to decorating, the possibilities for creating your own designs and décor are really endless. But DIY isn’t always necessarily the best choice. Some items are much more difficult and expensive to make yourself than others. Here’s a little guide to help you decide what types of items might make good DIY projects and which ones might be better to just buy.
When it comes to furniture, you don’t have to be a master carpenter to find some doable DIY projects. Painting and refinishing tables, chair and couch legs, and bookcases can be tackled easily. Even reupholstering couches and chairs can prove to be easier and cheaper than buying new. However, if you’re looking for a whole new style of couch, chair, or tables, buying new is likely the way to go. Save the DIYing for smaller details.
